SO MUCH FOR THE TOLERANT LEFT

"MSD is about freedom, not just individual freedom, or freedom to an elite few, but the idea that no one is free as long as others are oppressed. Our sound shall never be bound by formula, musical rules, or by categorization. If we choose to follow a formula, then we do so by our own artistic desire, never to satisfy an entity, not even fans. Any genre we choose to associate our sound with is only a guideline, and we shall never be 'faithful' to any single musical genre, so as not to stifle our creativity." - Excerpt from MSD Manifesto

TODAsH CHIMES

An arcade in revolt, A retro-futuristic sonic experience, the call of the void, a dream pop new wave dance party for the broken-hearted.

Todash Chimes is a new project from Monty O'Blivion (credited as Alan Smithee). True to the name, taken from Stephen King's "Dark Tower" saga, Todash Chimes exists in the space between alternate universes, drawing heavy, almost tongue-in-cheek inspiration from 80's and 90's tech and pop culture. In this music, the CPU is the band, operating as programmed, but given some room for its own improvisation. Sometimes frantic, sometimes inquisitive, quiet, loud, ever-changing and always mysterious a dreams tend to be.

Look for the first single, "A Tube Here, A Chamber There," on the upcoming Marly Records compilation on 5/28/18.
