MHZESENT/OQSK “THE SPLIT EP!” C-46 Following “S-Rated”, Michał Szewczyński abandoned noise for abstract hip-hop-infused instrumentals. We were skeptical at first, but then we heard this scorching suite of woozy beats and deep-space bass. oqsk counters with a collagey soundscape that still makes perfect sense in this context. $5
DISTANT TRAINS “BLACK WEEKEND” C-60 Distant Trains throws up anything and everything against the wall, as usual. Ironic black-noise jokesterism, guitar drone, distorted techno beats, deep minimal feedback drones, incongruous collage, and Mixtape Alpha abuse. $5
MOULTTRIGGER “ANODE” C-62 (would have fit on C-60 but we had more C-62 sitting around at the time) Dave is on a roll with his distinctive brand of casiodustrial. If you could dance to the sound of rusted-out girders in a car-crusher, this is what it would sound like. $5
ROADSIDE PICNIC “MAGPIES & LIES” Sometimes a really killer experimental/noise artist with a well-deserved reputation and an already stellar discography that we nonetheless have totally missed out on, wanders onto the Farm out of the blue looking to do a tape with us, and upon researching them we find we just can’t wait to turn all our homies on to their stuff. This is one of those times. $5
RAVEN VS ANTROPIK “PSYCHOTRONIC WEAPONS” C-62 Raven gets his sounds mangled up by French ambient artist Antropik to fine result, for a concept album about psychological warfare. Crushing.$5
And a bunch of other stuff, you missed out on, suck for you, but it’s been taken off the Catalog page.
But, if you were bummed out about not getting hold of the Ghosts Of Dead Tables/Bonehole split, I have good news: two more copies have surfaced. We will be staging fights over them and betting on the outcome on a date to be determined.
