Phase Velocity Halaka/Simon Waldram Split Cassette

Limited edition split cassette from the brand spankin' new Phase Velocity label. For their first release they've chosen split cassette from American experimental cult of nobody band, Halaka, and British singer/song writer Simon Waldram. Swalaka is limited to just 30 copies, and I think there are only 18 left. Each side is around 40 minutes. Halaka's side, titled Terminal Inside, plays as sort of a single piece, while Waldram's side is broken into traditional song segments. You can buy the tape here: http://phasevelocity.bandcamp.com.

Once these are gone there probably won't be anymore. Cassette is currently the only format this music is available in. No digital downloads have surfaced, but some excerpts have been posted over at soundcloud by Phase Velocity.

Check out
 Halaka: Terminal Inside (Excerpt) this is the band at their most straight forward, there's something about this that makes the listener want to punch their surroundings because the ladder doesn't reach to the top.


Simon Waldram: Revolt! an experimental sorta of punk ditty that turns a bit progressive towards the middle. The fuzzy production might cross into shoegaze territory, but without the whole wall of sound.

These tapes were made  by hand and feature liner notes from Halaka's man of mystery, Kingo Sleemer.

I'll post a full review when my copy arrives.

Black Monolith



I see Kingo is posting weird music, so I will post metal. I need to find some more weird stuff though, but for now: BLACK MONOLITH - Passenger. This album is another slab of black metal crust from the bay area, where the weather seems to be nice, but the music is full of doom. See Monuments Collapse for another example. This album is pay what you want (including zero) for the rest of this weekend. get it folks, then sit back with a pudding cup and shoot spitballs at your ceiling.

YAITW



You can get this awesome slab of sludgey blackened metal for 30% using code DWDEAL530. do it.

Modersohn-Becker

http://www.last.fm/music/Modersohn-Becker

"Modersohn-Becker is a duck."

It says so.

I walked out of the room, and then I walked back into the room.  MOR was playing when I left, and still playing when I walked back in.  It didn't take me long to get my kids' pajamas.  I don't know why I'm still getting my seven year old's pajamas out of the drawer for her.  Shut up.

There's something to be said for this stuff, though.  It has a sort of found-sound soundscape field-recording quality, but music at the same time.

My name is Ffarnle Blascot and I disapprove of this message.

Asangata

Asangata.

The first track here - http://asangata.bandcamp.com/album/reabsorption - on the album reabsorption, The Lost Kingdom - reminds me of something.  It's unimportant what it is.

Someone is playing a guitar, and possibly a bass, through an entire broken equipment.  The hackles.  I could chain the ears of my head beneath the desk of my self, burn.  That droning, bent note, scraping across the masonry blocks.  Turn your head to the left.  Whatever you do, don't cough.  Hugh Dunworthy, limping past the basement window.

There are acoustic instruments there.  I recognize the constructs.  There is a piece that is not a piece of desk and you can attach broken metal strings to it.  Nothing will happen.

Asangata is on last.fm here: http://www.last.fm/music/Asangata
I don't know what anyone can do at Last.fm.  I used to know.  It helps me to dream when I am sleeping but dreaming that I am not sleeping.  

Hit that thing again.

More things from the Woozy Tribe

Yesterday I stumbled on the music of Cool Timmy or Timothy Wizard who seems to have a number of releases under different names. Deathwish & Dead Bells falls under the messedupcoyote banner and it's fucking awesome. Noisy, loud guitars, punk rock, video game melodies. This guy does all this stuff by himself at home. I might like this record more than than the Cool Timmy album I posted yesterday. Again it's a PWYW release so go grab this and crank the hell out of it.

Cool Timmy - Slow Club

This is something I randomly found on bandcamp today and it's pretty great. Some of it has a bit of Portugal.The Man feel only more lo-fi.
