Sins of Your Youth EP
Emerging from a stagnant Ohio landscape, godot. Is making groundbreaking music, deconstructing existing art forms to build a new, exciting sound and a distinctive aesthetic. Drawing influence from art, film, politics, extistential philosophy, love, and frustration, Godot. S live performance is a unique experience combining live music with other artistic disciplines, including live painting and projections. Their post-art-rock sound creates an aural landscape of frantic guitars, melodic bass lines, textured drumming, and vocals marked by equal parts distortion and vulnerability. Their first e.p., the sins of your youth, recorded at Clevelands Lava Room Recordings, gives passionate voice to love, paranoia, and desperation, while showcasing a gift for atmosphere. The godot. Art and music collective was initiated in 2003 by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ryan Downey and performance painter Ryan B. Little. It was initially a two person performance group, but the lineup has expanded to realize ever-expanding ideas, both musical and visual. Today, the collective also includes drummer Justin Hofmann, bassist/vocalist Brian Robertson, guitarist Ryan Wilkins, painter Phil Grimaldi, NYC-based collaborator Sean OConnor, and live projections by various artists. Godot. Has emerged as a significant force in a revitalized Ohio music scene, and starting in 2006, the group will be bringing it's engrossing, multi-media live show to venues throughout the country.
