Destructo Swarmbots has carved a unique niche for themselves over the past 4 years. Their live shows consist of chaotic walls of white noise, improvised textures and battered instruments. Their recordings are delicate, at times meditative, washes of ambience constructed from countless piles of tortured sounds. Influenced heavily by 200+ needle-dropped, out of print psyche records, "Clear Light" is their strongest effort yet and the next step on their journey to artistic isolation.
“"A wild ride on the dark side of Psychedelia." -Rock Sound
"Noise comes in all textures and tones, but there's something truly unique about Destructo Swarmbots' experimentation. Somewhere between the creaking ambiance of Larsen and the incessantly clipping Xela, Destructo Swarmbots will ruin your life." -XLR8R
“"The man's droning psych pimp hand is strong!”"-Dead Angel
“"Clear Light is a realised and strong piece of sonic composition, which constantly breathes torment yet somehow manages to evoke elation through the use of softer melodic hums. Forming itself around you like a cocoon of noise it’ll absorb your attention if you give it the time, place and patience."” -Rock-a-Rolla
"A hermetic closed field of sound, that is indeed evocative and nice, but also quite dark. Post rock going underground. Very nice." -Vital Weekly
“"Lone gunman Mike Mare adopts a wide-angle lens on the record’s 40-minute opener “Banta,” but zooms in and out of focus in a fraction of the time on the three minor variations that cap it. Of course, it’s a convenient metaphor for Mare’s style of structured guitar improvisation: Clear Light exerts a gravitational pull like a giant black hole collapsing in on itself." -Decibel
