“Good times rock and roll”: The New Yorker Features Sightings in Noise/Not-Noise Piece

Sightings - City of Straw

Sightings - City of Straw

Much to the band’s chagrin (and ultimate understanding), Sightings were hailed in the Village Voice earlier this year as “Brooklyn’s greatest living noise band.” While it’s probably the best press quote most bands could ever hope for, the term “noise band,” isn’t particularly agreeable with the artists placed under that label.

In the most recent issue of The New Yorker, Sasha Frere-Jones takes the term head-on, speaking with artists such as Sightings, Yellow Swans and HEALTH about the application of term “noise” to their brands of music. A truly excellent read, it perhaps once and for all clarifies what these “noise bands” have been groaning about for years and years. As SFJ writes: “To many people now, noise isn’t necessarily an aggressive or alienating element; it sounds more like nature than nature does.”
