album release: festival by kite operations

Rock fans, check it. Festival, the third album from Kite Operations, is in stores this week from Actually, Records. Gone are the "delicate melodies and devastating love songs" of their previous two releases. Enter a new kind of volatile and hypnotic sound. incisive." From Actually's press relese:
"Festival is the third release from Kite Operations and it is quite a departure from the delicate melodies and devastating love songs of their first two albums. Filled with visceral noise spirituals, Festival is less a collection of songs than a joyous exaltation for the no-wave set; an exhilarating testament to the band’s ability to infuse dissonant experimentation with the emotionally incisive. Festival is where the band ignites so fiercely that Kite Operations become noise transformed. From the aching yet brazen titular opener to 'Ave Maria', an intensely hypnotic crescendo, this is a band intent on reaching ecstasy through unified sonic disintegration. The electrifying supernovas 'Ded Moroz' and 'Dasepo', further propel Kite Operations' triumph in creating a post-noise album so electrifying and distinctly new.
