Taiwan Housing Project

New Track: "Authentic Alien Perfume" - Taiwan Housing Project

“Authentic Alien Perfume,” the first single off Taiwan Housing Project forthcoming album Veblen Death Mask (available on May 5 via Kill Rock Stars) lights a fire under you. With an intoxicating, immediate, rolling-through-the-neighborhood groove complemented by unrestrained, rattling, noise-guitar riffs, the interplay of dual-fronted vocals, and brisk brutal blasts of saxophone, the track refuses to be bound by a predetermined script. Catch the band’s record release show on May 6 at Johnny Brenda’s with Igneous Eyes, Ursula, and Ian Svenonius!

Taiwan Housing Project Sign to Kill Rock Stars

Congrats to noise-punks Taiwan Housing Project for signing to Kill Rock Stars! The revered indie label announced that they'll be releasing the band's EP Three Song Record, which originally surfaced via M'Lady's Records as a self-titled seven-inch. Willfully inaccessible and unapologetically harsh, feel free to take the album for a spin (once again) below. It just might be what you need today to shake off the recent horrific Trump announcement of white nationalist/antisemite/"alleged" domestic abuser Steve Bannon's appointment to the position of White House Chief Strategist. We haven't been overreacting. This isn't normal. Don't let them fool you into thinking that it is. Let's get ready for a battle, folks.

New Taiwan Housing Project EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Project Kiki, the latest release from Taiwan Housing Project, searches for a signal in a buzzing labyrinth. Enter the noise-littered land of experimentation! As we await their new LP, this EP combines the feel of amplified nature with a futuristic spin.

Taiwan Housing Project Opening for Protomartyr & Priests at Underground Arts Feb. 12

Gathering from the remote reaches of esoterica is Philadelphia’s Taiwan Housing Project, a darkwave, coldwave, no wave, don’t-call-it-a-wave wave "supergroup" consisting of members from Little Claw, Harry Pussy, Casual Viking, and Tickley Feather. The band is as much a compound of members from other bands as it is of sounds and influences. Willfully inaccessible, unapologetically harsh, Taiwan Housing Project combines the noise worship of bands of the 80's East Village scene like DNA or Mars with the darker tonal elements of Bauhaus, conveyed with a cavernous sonic depth. What results is a delirium of murky unease, bordering on dread, and sheathed in atonal noise (see contemporary noise-rock act Dreamdecay). THP will be performing at Underground Arts tonight with a lineup of similarly rooted bands Protomartyr and Priests, who both possess noise-savvy no-wave inclinations and a brazen disregard for conventional melody. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock


Taiwan Housing Project Opening for U.S. Girls at JB's Nov. 16

The beginning of the week can feel like a zombie-like sleepwalking state as residual vibes persist but seemingly fit nowhere. However, Johnny Brenda’s will provide the fitting space this evening when Taiwan Housing Project rips right to the emotive center. With an ambushing noise-punk aesthetic, the band’s unrelenting sound naturally gathers momentum, vocally offering a dichotomy of commanding leadership, while also exhibiting a closer personal edge, using a heavy stampede of noise to shake the surroundings into submission. Escape-ISM, the latest project from Ian Svenonius (Chain & the Gang, The Make-Up, Weird War), catches you in a web of simplistic adhesion - parts raw buzzing rock with underlying pop nostalgia. In support of their new record, Half Free, former Philly native Meghan Remy and her project U.S. Girls headline. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
