Jodis: Feature on Noise Creep


Chances are, you haven't heard of
Jodis yet. The band features James Plotkin and Tim Wyskida from Khanate and Isis frontman Aaron Turner. The band's new album, 'Secret House,' drops Oct. 27, but isn't for everybody. The music would best be described as moody prog. Plotkin has, himself, described it as "a modern exploration of restrained sonic minimalism and tonal, textural density ... [that] recalls a void, a shore-less pit, a slow nihilistic decent into absolute blankness."

Like we said ... it's not for everybody. And that's cool by Jodis (pronounced Joe-Diss), who're named after a moth found largely in Europe. "I don't make music for anybody other than myself," Plotkin tells Noisecreep. "I play what I like. If other people can catch on to it, that's fine, but if not, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. It's the same thing with the other guys. If we were making music for other reasons, beyond pleasing ourselves, we'd be a lot more successful than we are. Its definitely a selfish, selfish thing for me, making music."
