Codas is Mario Quintero, an experimental artist from Brooklyn, New York. He strongly believes that music and art are essential parts of our lives, something which I can only agree on. With this ep, he wants to support music education in low income schools. All the proceeds will be donated through www.donorschoose.org . This certainly is a noble cause, and it's not even the only reason why you should buy this ep.
The second reason is simple: this is a damn good ep, loaded with gritty electronics, harsh guitars and elaborate soundscapes. It's a cold, gloomy and gnawing three-track with quite an apocalyptic atmosphere. It reminds me of something between Scorn, Godflesh, Nadja, Kong, James Welburn and Jesu. That means, industrial, instrumental, droning, repetitive and hypnotic, a perfect combination if you ask me.
So yes, you have to check this out if you like heavy experimental music. My personal favorite track is closer 'Eleven', which simply is an epic piece of whatever it is. My advice: play it loud and let yourself go.
