"Herky jerky neo-wave electroclash"

The ten songs found on "Burn Alive" by the (Pacific) Northwest's Hidden Number are pedal to the floor, don't look back, herky-jerky neo-wave that features sounds SO ANGULAR AS TO BE JAGGED. Synths, guitars and vocals lope and rage back and forth between the speakers with such pummeling power that they wouldn't even bother to stop and SKULL FUCK the wasted corpse of electroclash to let the listener catch their breath.

Deep in the heart of founding member/engineer/producer Dean Swanson’s recording complex Magnets Large & Small, the band Hidden Number is completing their second album to be released in the Spring of 2011. They continue tirelessly to craft compositions that lead the band in unexpected directions toward unknown destinations. Coalescing however it will, the music ignores any barrier of genre, label, and niche. Hidden Number channels a broad expanse of individual influences—be it compositions of art, film, music, or mythology—in a dynamic approach of intensity and subtlety, noise and melody, order and chaos, painted against walls of textural sonic information through their guitars, synthesizers and samplers, drums, and voice.

The story of Hidden Number is a long and rambling tale full of misadventure and folly. Dean Swanson, guitarist/keyboard/vocalist, and Joe Stuhff, bassist, moved to Seattle following a mysterious vision brought on by a fasting expedition. Kai Strandskov, drummer, was introduced to them via a mutual friend and avid collector of the arcane. Josh Anderson, guitars/keyboards, managed to escape an Oregonian commune and his own hallucinations, to preemptively wait for everyone to arrive and form the collective we know today. Hidden Number continues their obsession with music and the development of an uncertainly originating logical system of forms.
