Negativland – It’s All In Your Head

Direct orders from here at Negativmailorderland include a free, exclusive sticker!


Negativland’s new album, IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD, finds the group tackling their biggest subject ever: why humans believe in God. Millennia-in-development, this ambitious and densely-crafted double CD is packaged inside an actual Holy Bible which has been appropriately repurposed into a “found” art object.

IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD intends to entertain, inform, and provoke. On the CDs, Negativland mixes found music, found sound, found dialogue, guest personalities and original electronic noises into a compelling and thoughtful musical essay that looks at monotheism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, neuroscience, suicide bombers, 9/11, colas, war, shaved chimps, and the all-important role played by the human brain in our beliefs. Reading the attached Bible is optional.

The audio is presented as a live radio broadcast, modeled after Negativland’s weekly “Over the Edge” radio program on KPFA FM in Berkeley, CA. This theater-of-the-mind project has been assembled from basic tracks recorded live in front of blindfolded studio audiences, and documents the unique style of live collage performances that Negativland has been presenting on stages, and on radio, since the formation of the group in 1980.

Since its previous album release six years ago, Negativland has kept busy with its weekly radio program, lectures, art gallery shows and live performances in the U.S. and Europe. Currently in the works are several different studio albums, including Negativland’s all-electronic “Booper Symphonies,” two brand new “Over the Edge” album releases, more art shows, and a new touring live show called “Content!” with upcoming performances at festivals throughout 2014 and 2015.

    It is very refreshing to know that Negativland does still matter, and comments with an open mind to subjects that influence (read: brainwash) millions of people today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Thank YOU for that and BLESS (sorry, I sneezed). Keep up the works!

    Here’s a brief extract from my review of this great CD: “Atheists will (probably) be ecstatic… fundamentalists will freak out, to be sure… no “religion” goes unscathed, as the band skillfully weaves discussions, sounds and some great music into a sonic collage that will threaten various groups in their conceptions of what “God” is.”

    another triumph! Time Can Do So Much is the hit single, imho. plenty of other excellence, although Wildlife Tonight strays too close to Firesign Theater impersonation for my tastes.

    As ever, packaging/art direction is outstanding.

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours today, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
