Small Hours - Kate

Cinematic noise wall is a thing, right? I mean there’s Burial Ground… and then there’s, well, this: “This ‘Wall’ consists of 3 different tracks mixed together: Track 1: Audio Recording Of A Cooling Fan. Track 2: Audio Recording Of A Rainstorm. Track 3: Audio Samples From The Film ‘Titanic’ & The Song ‘What If’”

Maid Marian/Tall Too

A split tape on Sweat Power, with cover art consisting of a collage involving a map of Des Moines, of two artists who seemingly never made anything else and who I really have no idea what people are involved; but both sides have good freak-folkish lo-fi bedroom psych sounds. There seem to be a couple-three songs each side but there’s no track listing so I left each side a file to itself.

/ləˈɡ(y)o͞obrēəs/ / N0123NOISE

From the scrappy and prolific Detroit-area Trashfuck Records comes this fine feedback worship/power electronics/harsh noise/dark drone tape.

Abyssinian Flag -

Pretty great tape I got from this band at a show I set up for them. Raw noise rock kinda somewhere in between a more guitar driven Missing Foundation and a more pissed The Dead C.

Crodar - Movie

Nice tape of darkish drone ambient stuff. I know very little else about it.

Andy Ferris - Alien Speak

Andy Ferris is an Iowa musician who’s been in a lot of cool stuff. Here he is on a lo-fi solo acoustic singer-songwriter tip, it’s good.

Roped Off / Garrincha

Nice drone stuff here; Roped Off’s side comes off a bit more industrial, while Garrincha’s plays off it with a more ambient vibe along the lines of say, Lost Trail.

Coma Centauri / Creature Feature

Always thought it kind of cool that Worthless Recordings never put downloads up. Great intense harsh noise split here.

Sobou Shuu / Out//Rider

Following the Moist Tapes theme, killer homebrew noise-industrial on both sides of this, all frying analog circuits and dark vibes.

Speaking of Moist, they did a really great Boar tape called “Defiance” and I used to have it but I sold it to a guy on discogs who was trying to get to a complete Moist Tapes collection, and I was sure I had made a digital rip of it before I sent it, but I can’t find it now :( Anyone out there has it, hit me up.
