Re: Weird Tales / Sword & Sorcery

I wonder if you can offer some good recommendations to iritate my sensitivities the way these two examples do. No romance, no high fantasy, no heroes, no magic or metaphysical guiding light. Just the pure, matetrial brutality of nature described in fantastic extremes. Something to remind me of how ...

Re: Now Playing

New Puce Mary tapes. Everything regarding these tapes seemed to be such a mess that I was surprised they even arrived at all. Of course, the dubs are rather poor and one of the tapes is too short so the tape runs out a minute or two too early on one side, but I do like the material. She's supposedl...

Re: The Future of the physical format underground

there is no guarantee of permanence. Setting aside the issue of object fetishism, this is a problem for all digital media. In addition to arbitrary content policies of the big platforms, the issue of purely digital content is new; how does one maintain a years-long collection of a bunch of files? D...

Re: The Future of the physical format underground

of course "there will always be a market," and it's hard to imagine "new formats" that don't exist yet, the problem is that cost of production has been going up while turnaround times and quality are getting (a lot) worse. eventually vinyl and cassettes are restricted to diehard ...

Re: The Great Format War

nostalgia or just "following traditions" ah, the problem is production and manufacturing (as usual), most places won't do CD runs less than 500, if you are lucky you can get 100, but the price point is basically the same if not more for small run of pro CD's, whereas tapes you can do any ...

Re: The Great Format War

objectively the "best" format is tape, best for archival purposes, can be as hi-fidelity as vinyl under proper conditions, can hold any length of time in theory, plus a totally mechanical process (ie if you had to re-invent the tape player from scratch you could probably reverse engineer i...

Why do any political art then? I don't see any reason to distinguish power electronics from other forms of art/music in regards to its potential. the difference is the size of the audience. if you want to reach lots of people, power electronics is not the form for it. if your political project does...

From the label: " 'Flowers' by Leo Brochu is one of the best slabs of harsh noise I have heard recently; it simply is a favorite amongst a lot of other stuff, though it has a lot of the familiar tricks and tips that you’ve already come to love on other classics. Cavernous rumbling Macro-Mother ...

this framing is a "turnoff" for me to be honest. if you're gonna flirt with right-wing shit just admit that that's what you are or stop playing with it. if you want to be "provocative" you shouldnt get mad when someone thinks you're a nazi or a pedophile or whatever. own your sh...
