Lowercase Noises - Famine and the Death of a Mother

Artist: Lowercase Noises
Track: Famine and the Death of a Mother
Album: This Is For Our Sins (2014)

Lowercase Noises is the musical brainchild of Andy Othling, a multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist from Albuquerque, NM. All programming and composition on Lowercase Noises’ albums are performed by Andy, with exception of the occasional guest musician or vocalist.

Lowercase Noises was birthed out of a small college dorm with very basic recording gear, a slew of effects pedals and an electric guitar. As Andy’s passion for and interest in the recording/mixing process bloomed, along with his talent for producing, songs and styles emerged that built the framework for what Lowercase Noises is today.

Lowercase Noises has an impressive body of work, all of which can be downloaded/bought over on Bandcamp. The latest offering, "This Is For Our Sins" is out on 30th April and you can pre-order now for digital and vinyl.
