I’ve been listening to these a bunch, and they’re quickly becoming a couple of my favorite noise releases of recent months, so it’s pretty boss that I get to be the one releasing them!
Reportedly to be Michał Szewczyński’s final noise release and final release as mhz_, S-Rated is comprised of two 30 minute dreamscapes, each following a similar two-part progression from cold isolating industrial quiet-noise, into grinding metallic bubbles.
You are inside the Machine, hearing its metabolism, at the site of the Injury where dozens of robotic appendages scurry about, repairing the damage, welding, delivering replacement parts, chattering to each other in scrambled radio waves. Chris Blair presents an hour, divided into quarters, of dense, enveloping, raw, dynamic, space-machine noise.
Proper cassette & download release is a week from today (Feb 9 2013) but you can stream them right now at the Centipede Farm Bandcamp AND you can pre-order the tape and if you do, you’ll get the download right away all early-like! (It’s a feature of Bandcamp that I’m trying out).
