SUMMER 2012 UPDATE

After many months holed up in our Lycanthropic Sounds Workshop, (((6))) has finally sculpted out a live set that we feel worthy of public performance...

June 22nd will be our first 2012 performance and marks our first appearance as a duo.  It will feature tracks such as Release the Sheiks & Nite City which have not been performed live in many years as wells as songs off of isolated incidents, Arp Little Secret & Pick Up.

(((6))) Live @ CPR
Friday June 29th
4109 Melrose Ave. (near LACC/ Vermont Ave.)
Free before 12 w/ Facebook RSVP
w/ Thee Gabe, Pan, Amoreena

Pick Up received an in depth write up from Brian @ Norman Records:

Who the fuck are these weirdos? This is one of those mad records that sounds like Add N [to X] at first with banks of gurgling, fizzy chattering bulky synths entwining over a kind of doomy techno 808 churn. The title track sounds like something old and experimental like Tuxedomoon re-imagined by Miss Kittin for a modern LA dancefloor.
It's all over the place and has a guitar solo on it. Guitar solos and electronic beats suck usually but this one miraculously gets away with it as it's quite unusual and has a weird backwoods feel to it. I'm reminded a bit of outsider yank collectives like Schizo Fun Addict or the later gear from Excepter but there's also a Kool Pop/DHR feel to its stuttering icy-cool shadings. Once again that strange Berlin/NY loft experimentation comes to the fore on S2's 'Overgrowth', a pulsing retro electroid leg-shagger that juxtaposes some vintage electronic panning, demented wasp synths with a relentless beat and slinky dispassionate female vocals.
The EP concludes with the most remarkable track, 'Blame & Blood', which is simply insane and cannot be accurately conveyed or described in simple words. Like some kinda manic industrial electronic ghetto funk replete with the wail of wild cosmic seduction with the craziest M/F call-and-response vocal tagging you'll hear. A damn interesting EP with enough strong ideas and unhinged tunes to truly satisfy the stranger dance-floors of the galaxy.

The Pick Up 12" is now available from the following online outlets:


You can also order directly from 4:2:2v2

 We are not offering the record for sale on our website.
Those of you in the L.A. area can pick it up in person @ Amoeba. While supplies last (((6))) will have them available @ one of this summer's live shows. More L.A. dates are planned as well as SF, Bakersfield & a possible trip up to the Pacific Northwest.

(((6))) decided to put off our European jaunt until 2013 as to focus on our 1st full length LP.  However we are hopeful to finally make it back out to the East Coast in October.  Any leads on venues and/or promoters are welcome, please email or facebook us.
