Pitchfork reviews "No Name (Danny Kane's Blues)"
Drainolith is the project of Alexander Moskos. The Montreal based Moskos is a longstanding figure in the North American Underground Music scene. He has played in various projects most notably as the lead guitarist in noise rock outfit AIDS Wolf. He is also currently a member of Danʼl Boone whoʼs s/t lp was released in 2014 on Drag City. Moskosʼ songs in Drainolith are simple lyrical motifs wrapped in angular blues riff and futureshock electronics that are as much inspired by Robert Ashley as they are by Leonard Cohen. The first Drainolith lp “Fighting” was released on Spectrum Spools in 2012. “Hysteria” the new Drainolith lp is set for release on NNA Records & Tapes in 2015. The album was produced by Neil Hagerty of Royal Trux and Nate Young of Wolf Eyes. The cycle of songs on “Hysteria” touch on many themes: The Quebec biker wars, surviving street hassles in Detroit, MI, getting jacked for your sneakers, corse sexual desire. Moskos has toured all over the world with his many projects and will continue to do so. He is also set to publish a novel and drop a solo piano lp in 2015.
