Pissing Stars is a fever dream whose central tensions feel all too real…mysterious yet relatable, and a distinctly singular experience. It’s Menuck’s gift that he can take chilling melody lines and unsettled, often ugly, effects and turn out something so beguiling, like a trick of the light; desperate, terrifying and strangely beautiful.” Drowned In Sound (8/10)
 
“A stunning return to solo form. A thorough dive into cosmic post-instrumentation, riddled with constantly swelling crescendos, unconventional drones and chilling vocals. Pissing Stars is an album that will make people feel, even if they’ve avoided feeling for a long time.” The Gauntlet
“A remarkable solo achievement from one of Constellation Records most creative of forces…a phenomenal musical experience.” Echoes and Dust
 
“Pissing Stars plays like a text that invites rereading and re-deciphering. It is intimate and alienating; friendly and mysterious; and, most importantly, a whole lot of eerie fun for any listener interested in experimental music.” Exclaim (8/10)
 
 
 

 
 

Pissing Stars is the brilliantly intense follow-up to Menuck’s 2011 solo debut Plays “High Gospel” and the first new material with Efrim as central songwriter and vocalist since 2014’s acclaimed Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything from his chamber-punk-rock band Thee Silver Mt. Zion. Menuck has developed a much-deserved cult status among fans of political punk, post-rock and avant-noise songcraft alike, and celebrates 25 years of unflinching and uncompromising sonic output with Pissing Stars, wherein he launches acerbic darts, impassioned salvos and fragile flowers into gusts of noise-battered song built around pulsing maximalist electronics and drone, composed on modular synthesizer and guitar, shot through with alternately plaintive, chilling, often processed vocals.
