Noise vs Beauty

Noise vs Beauty

Presenting Noise vs Beauty: a 15 song journey which spans the spectrum of music from hardcore noise hysteria to lush, ethereal beauty - and many points in between. I collaborated with over 50 different human beings on this collection, and it is without a doubt my favorite album to date!

  • swan ronson

    hola! Will the vinyl be available individually or only as part of the NvsB bundle?

    • eyycaiiit

      I think if you click on just the little CD option it lets you choose vinyl as well!

    • Vinyl is available individually. Like our fellow basshead beneath here said, just go to buy the NVSB album and under music format select “vinyl”. Lemme know if you have any trouble and I’ll send you a direct link πŸ™‚ enjoy!

  • NikkiJean

    Sir, you are a GOD among artists in my book.

    Much respect, and don’t ever give up on the Dollar Per Bass Head charity.

    I’m smoking some tree and blasting that stream you put on for THUMP in my living room!!!

    Much love dude, keep it up, and come to Orlando soon. Can’t wait for your upcoming album to drop.

  • erik jones

    I think “hold on” needs to be extended, its to good to be that short.

    • tyler

      I strongly agree. It seems unfinished.

  • Kid Grover

    Only 50 Longboards will be made?? >.< I want one so bad, but I doubt Ill be able to get one in time.

    • David Giovannini

      Host a bake sale, or build a lemonade stand!! Get it while it’s HOT!!! ;P

  • MRDunn

    Was trying to order the deluxe bundle with the CD, tshirt, and print, the only option for shipping is priority mail which is pretty expensive. Is there any way to order with standard shipping? Maybe after the official release or something?

    • Chris Basscrew

      That is the shipping cost from the distributor – there are Collector’s Bundles still available if you are interested πŸ™‚

  • Johnny Ayahuasca

    i just pre-ordered and wow i cant wait!!!! im like a kid in a bassnectar candy store!!

  • Andrew

    Is there an option somewhere for purchase that’s just the direct
    download NOT on iTunes? Adding the $7+ shipping makes me not really want
    the physical CD if there’s another option.

  • Eric Kane

    Soooo pre ordered a deluxe bundle and have yet to receive a link for the album……:(

    • David Giovannini

      Hey Eric, have you gotten a link yet?

    • Chris Basscrew


  • Brian

    Am I to buy the album and download it straight to my Android without buying the physical copy? Since I can’t buy it via itunes

  • Ashley

    Will we get an email with a link to download the album at midnight?!

    • David Giovannini

      Confirmation codes will be sent out, the album may automatically download to iTunes via The Cloud

  • Brian

    My link to the album digital download apparently expired because I clicked on it too many times. I’d click on thr download link from my confirmation email and it’d pull up a page that said there was an error. How can I undo this???

    • Richard

      having the same problem trying to download it as well

      • Eric Kane

        as am i and i preordered/purchased deluxe bundle …$60…

        • Grayson

          im having the same problem and running out of times i can click to download it. someone help!

          • Mark

            Exact same problem here

          • Irv

            me Tooo

          • Chris Basscrew

            Have you tried again? It’s after midnight PST, which is when the download was to be released.

          • Chris Basscrew

            Don’t keep clicking! πŸ™‚ The download was not supposed to be available until midnight PST – have you tried again today?

        • Conrad Ohr

          Chiming in, yup…can’t download.

          • Chris Basscrew

            Log into your account and try again – let me know if it works!

        • Chris Basscrew

          You can log into your account and download it from your downloadable products area. Let me know if this worked out!

      • Chris Basscrew

        The download was not going to be available until midnight PST. Try again? You can go to your account through the online store. Let me know πŸ™‚

    • Mark

      When I click the link in the my account area to download I get a page saying access denied

      • Chris Basscrew

        This may have been because you tried to download before midnight PST. Any luck since?

    • David Giovannini

      Are all of you still having issues? The pre-order was acting a little strange across time zones.

    • Mike Kern

      Yup, I can’t download it either cause it “expired” for me…

      • Chris Basscrew

        Have you tried going into your account within Sandbag?

        • Brian

          nope i have not yet….did that work for you?

          • Chris Basscrew

            email me at christopher(at)

  • Irv

    Please do a music video of lost in the crowd!!!!! I can picture it in my head.

  • Mark

    Would I be able to get a link for the lossless version of the album instead of mp3 please?:)

    • Chris Basscrew

      Yes πŸ™‚ Select AIFF when purchasing the album in the store!

  • Felicia

    How do i download the cd I pre ordered it weeks ago

    • Chris Basscrew

      Did you order it through If so, you can log into your account online and go to the downloadable products area. Let me know πŸ™‚

      • Anne

        I got the email last night, waited to click the link since my shipment will be delayed now (got deluxe), but the page says “you have not purchased any downloadable items yet” yet the email said I’d be able to download the digital version… I really hope this gets resolved before thursday night or else I won’t be able to enjoy the album until one week from today. πŸ™

        • Chris Basscrew

          Anne!! Email with “NVSB – (your order number)” in the subject line their customer service team will get you sorted. Thanks for your patience πŸ™‚

  • WompaWobbles

    Still no email for download links? I just wanna get my bass on.

    • WompaWobbles

      wow. I am now getting my bass on. >:D

      • Chris Basscrew

        So were you able to get your download?

  • Felicia

    I ordered on two months ago and its still saying processing and nothing is showing up in the downloadable products area.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hi Felicia πŸ™‚ Email with “NVSB – (your order number)” in the subject line and you will be taken care of. Thanks for your patience!!

  • KaitKop

    MSG in October is going to be life changing. Can’t wait

  • Michael

    No more FLAC?

    • Chris Basscrew

      MP3 & AIFF

    • Adam Baxter

      Boomkat has it in FLAC.

  • Ticklebottom

    Very irritating that I pre-ordered the new CD over a month ago and the status still shows processing despite being charged over $7 for shipping. I figured I would have received my copy no later than 2 days after the release date. I’m starting to wish that I would have just ordered from amazon.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Were you able to get your digital download?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Did you order a bundle?

  • Louie

    I preordered the collector’s bundle: How can I switch from the default MP3 digital album download to AIFF in the “My Downloadable Products” page? The mp3 download worked fine I’m just itching for lossless πŸ™‚

    • Chris Basscrew

      If you selected MP3, then you have received what you ordered and paid for. If you would like to get Lossless, you will have to order again to get it! May not be a bad move though πŸ™‚

      • Louie

        There was no audio format option for the bundle I chose. Only t-shirt size and CD or vinyl. There was no choice for the format of the digital download.

        • Chris Basscrew

          Then you need email with “NVSB – (your order number)” in the subject line and they will be able to get you taken care of πŸ™‚

          • darKube

            Hey Chris, I haven’t ordered yet. Are you saying that the lossless audio files are available by ordering the CD and then emailing I’m looking for the highest quality material. I love the new tracks. πŸ™‚

          • Chris Basscrew

            It should be an option when you purchase – if you have any issues, you can email Sandbag


    • I had to buy this!!! sOOooo amazing hope to see more!!! love the Future!!!!

  • Rian Baker

    I saw you for the first time at Wakarusa 2014 and I cannot stop listening. This is amazing. I loose myself in the music every time! Keep going good sir! We love you here in Arkansas!

    • what an awesome set to have as your first show πŸ™‚ welcome. πŸ™‚

  • Caroline

    Are you gunna release the Flashback/Timestretch/I’ll Follow Rivers remix you played at red rocks 2014?! That was sick!!!!

    • Chris Basscrew

      That was so good πŸ™‚

  • Sam Squantch Barton

    this album is LAME A.F………….where is that nasty grimmy sound from years past???? a real let down……quik LORIN jump in and sound just like everyone else…………..#SELLOUT

    • David Giovannini

      without a clearly defined shape or form.

    • a sellout sells out their morals, ethics, principles, things they believe in… lorin has never done that πŸ™‚

      if you like the older stuff, it will always be there for your listening pleasure! for the rest of us, we’re having F.U.N. lately

  • Sam Squantch Barton


  • Grant (Shook One Music)

    Exactly how much bass do you drop in our face tho.

  • ZONAbasshead

    I’ve been trying to order the vinyl and shirt combo but it seems like its sold out πŸ™

    Will more shirts be made in the future? Also, if I pick up the vinyl from a local record store will it also come with a digital download or does that only work through your site?


  • Sc0ttyt

    When i click to see the NVSB Tee Bundle there is no option to add to cart… is it also sold out? I’m looking for a way to buy a physical copy at the least, hopefully with a bundle if available.

  • Need to get this

  • Ian Valdez

    Is there any way that i could purchase the album in 24 bit flac or AIFF?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Not as of right now, but always check back πŸ˜‰

  • Shannon Marie

    Wish you would come back to Milwaukee, or even South-Eastern WI!!! WE MISS YOU!

  • Old Head(Banger)

    Yo Lorin, Im not trying to be a wet blanket, I love NVSB, especially F.U.N., Gnar, and Flash Back; but I have one concern. Up until now none of your music contains any explicit drug reference, and its possible I am mishearing them but Lost In The Crowd, I love the drill base drop by the way, sounds to me to say, ‘popping bars, sniffing white, sipping lean in the Sprite’ this to me is a deviation from your message of safe raging. I know your stance on this issue, but I also know the scenes; I hope you dont give up spreading consiousness as to the effects reckless substance use can have on minds, bodies, and art. Small concern, much love.

    • i consulted the experts and it’s actually the other way around πŸ™‚ lyrics are something like “now everything’s poppin bars…” etc as if that’s all some people wanna talk about in music these days. check out lorin’s liner notes about that track and others —

      • Old Head

        Just got around to checking back on this. Thanks for your response and insight, really enjoyed reading those track by track notes. I hear it now; sometimes a couple words make all the difference. Haha. Much love to all the bassheads out there, and especially to you colleen, your a hell of an admin and been keeping us straight and in the know for a while now. ???? As my mom always says have fun and stay safe.

  • Amber

    i have one more ticket to the show in Kansas City, at the Midland! E-mail me at if you are looking to go on Thursday!! #basshead

    Hey I’m a diehard basshead! And I’m doing my video I project for school on Bassnectar and interviewing a bunch of bassheads here in Chattanooga. I was hoping to use Loco Ono and/or Noise in my project, but I need your permission to use these for my teacher. Soo can I have permission to use those two songs for my 3 min video project for school at UTChattanooga? It is noncommerial and just being used for school

    • Chris Basscrew

      Email me at chris(at)bassnectar(dot)net πŸ™‚

  • Humby

    Just had a great meditation session to this, thank you Lorin.

  • node808


    “You & Me” is somewhat of an anthem for me and my wife. In March of 2014, less than two weeks before her 30th birthday, she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. January 14th of this year was her last radiotherapy session, and her cancer is currently in remission. It’s been a grueling trip through hell, but this song was one of the many ways that I let her know that she was not alone and that I was not going anywhere. Only our families and close friends know about her illness, so the fact that I am posting this here is a testament to the positive atmosphere that you and your music creates.

    We are now looking forward to celebrating life with you at Red Rocks on May 31st, where two dreams will become reality….seeing Bassnectar LIVE and going to a show at Red Rocks!

    Thank you for doing what you do.

    -Adam & Naomi

    • FUCK cancer!!!

      it’s so great to hear that your wife has gone into remission, and that bassnectar music was a source of comfort along the way. much love to you both! i hope Red Rocks was the celebration of life you expected πŸ™‚

  • Joshua

    Bought the album. Didn’t expect the CD to knock as hard as it does. Blew my car speakers out. πŸ˜€
