Martin Bisi upcoming album, Ex Nihilo:
Martin Bisi download FREE MP3 -The Mermaid Queen:

Martin Bisi, a New York-based indie rock performer, record producer, engineer and label owner, has been at the crossroads of indie, punk, avant garde, noir/cabaret rock, hip hop and electronic music since the early 80's in New York City.

Bisi's upcoming release is titled Ex Nihilo (Burger Records) - Latin for "Out Of / From Nothing." It will be released later this year. A darker tone dominates the record compared to his last couple of releases - Ex Nihilo is an exploration of the psyche, and catharsis, with a ritualistic sensibility reminiscent of his 1988 album Creole Mass.

Ex Nihilo captures Bisi's productiion style of sonic excess and dense layering. A moody ambiance frames the songs, with Bisi playing all the instruments, along with drummer Billy Atwell (who also played on Bisi's Sirens Of The Apocalypse). The exceptions are "Fine Line," which has Brian Viglione of Dresden Dolls drumming, while opera singer and theater personality Amanda White contributes dramatic female vocals to a few tracks. There are also sampled cameos from current Bisi productions White Hills and Woman on the album opener, "Nihil Holy."

At the OAO recording studio he started in Brooklyn 1981 with the help of Brian Eno, Martin Bisi has realized albums by Sonic Youth, Swans, Material/Bill Laswell, Boredoms, Dresden Dolls, Cop Shoot Cop, John Zorn, Africa Bambaataa, Herbie Hancock's Rockit, White Zombie, Foetus, Helmet, Unsane, Serena Maneesh, US Maple, Jon Spencer's Boss Hog, and countless other indie, experimental and post-punk records.
