double cassette compilation courtesy of australia's mazurka editions.

always love the compilations and packages from this label - very consistent aesthetic and musical curation.

this one is no different - the tracks compliment each other very well and nothing feels out of place.

1. Balancing Act
2. Not A Gradual Decline


harsh, metallic power electronics from ahlzagailzehguh.

release by fusty cunt last year.

yes, it really does come with a nail in cement and an unplayable cassette with a piece of rusted metal affixed to it.

and every "cover" is a different piece of linoleum tile.

it's a great package and a true art object, unlike most "special editions" nowadays.

creations like this embody everything I love and respect about the scene.

I bought this from analog worship, but I guess it was the last copy...so keep an eye on discogs.

1. Pedicure 1

new release from the rita courtesy of bacteria field.

crumbling, glitchy walls of emptiness, which probably fits the current mood all too well.

total destruction, total isolation, totally unfeeling.

1. Balls Up Crazy
2. Greased Up Pussy Pump


released via bacteria field a while ago...time keeps slipping, moving faster and faster...feels like this came out just a few weeks ago, but apparently it was months...

anyway, solid harsh noise from an artist we all know.

and I apologize for so few posts recently...but I've been busy with, well, life...but more posts will be coming soon.

copies are still available from the label via the link below.

digital fairy tales: album one.



Digital Fairy Tales: Album One

October 6th - 31st, 2016

Opening Reception: October 6th, 6-9p

Made in NY Media Center
30 John Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201



film week crushed all of the my time for the past month, hence the lack of posting...but now that it's over, I can finally announce a new show to which I've contributed work.

this time I'll find you is my contribution to the digital fairy tales: album one group show and, honestly, it's my favorite thing I've created in a while.

shot over the course of five days on location in new jersey and wisconsin, it tells the story of an astronaut who finds herself stuck in a temporal loop of someone else's creation, constantly searching for a way out.


the music was composed and performed by damian master, who most of you probably know from a pregnant light and colloquial sound recordings...harsh noise, ambience, and melody are all juxtaposed here to create a unique, otherworldly feeling.

I know I say this all the time, but I couldn't be happier with this piece. my incredible girlfriend does a fantastic job of capturing the sadness and isolation of the main character, and damian's music is just perfect.

there might even be a cassette release in the near future...


there are six other videos in the show, including one from josh graham, and everyone in the area should come and check them out. josh, myself, and a few of the other artists will be present for a Q&A during the opening on 10/6, so stop by, have a chat, and partake in the free wine and beer that will be available.

a trailer for the show can be found here.

plus, the show will also be projected onto the manhattan bridge as part of the light year series until 10p that night.

don't miss it.



EDIT: the score is now available for purchase via colloquial sound recordings, both digitally and on cassette.

1. Loop I
2. Loop II
3. Loop III
4. Loop IV



here's a custom set of loops from derrick spotts, who makes noise and drone recordings as painted woman and purity of essence, respectively.

he also released this via willful industry, a sublabel of his own unseen force, where he's been releasing fantastic material for years now.

as the description says, no two sets are alike. the loops are short, but I've ripped them here into (approximately) five minute blocks.

use them as you see fit, or just listen to them as they are and fall into a trance.

it's not yet sold out, so don't hesitate to pick up your own version. the packaging is expectedly excellent and the process of making looping cassettes is definitely an art in its own right.

a lot of care was taken to create these loops, both in construction and recording, and it would make a great addition to anyone's collection.

highly recommended.
