about

Diode -- from Greek roots meaning 'two' and 'path' -- is the industrial-noise project of Shawn Foree of Digital Leather and Iowa's David Hansen, usually of Worried Mothers. Like the electrical component, Diode the duo blocks current in all but one intended direction, spewing charged, colorful ooze. The result is a sort of miasma, cut by jagged bursts of noise and minimalist new wave.

Tabs Out Podcast Top 200 Tapes of 2014 Pick (#10),

"Fucking hell these jams are so legit raw . . . shreds through some blistered industrial/punk/noise with disgusting synths and septic guitar run off with callous vocals buried underneath. This is the kind of music the kids are listening to in movies about the future. Kids with loud hats and complicated sunglasses, doing a drug called Venom-X, convulsing in a ditch somewhere. I think this is the Diode debut, in which case the future is looking bright/grim, depending on how you choose the view it. The husky oscillations and feedback will make the parents feel uneasy." -Ad Hoc

"...what we'll refer to as an 'industrial shit-noise band'." -Impose Magazine

"...doesn't lay off the intensity one bit." -Tiny Mix Tapes
