I'm a huge Andrew Nolan fan and was more than excited to see that he contributed a remix on one of my favorite Hardcore projects, RETIREMENT
It's an Iron Lung Records release so don't expect moshing crap, just excellent blown out noisy hardcore. Andrew's work is so complimentary!

I checked this out on your recommendation. This one is a scorcher! Blown away. Need to place another order with SATATUHATTA and grab some things I've been sleeping on.

NBDY - Woods & Wires
Great cut-up noise. BUT! I have the same issue with this that I had with Kazumoto Endo's Keiyo, there are too many silent gaps that are way too long. Silence can be a powerful tool and can be used like sound but 30 secs of silence in the middle of a track? Ruins it for me.

Residual - Forcing The End
A fantastic 20min blast of the most enjoyable harsh noise!

Merzbow - EXD
More archival goodies from mid '90s, I can't get enough of this stuff.

Mass Ejection - Molten Vasts
Mastering wizard Grant Richardson teams up with Themistoklis Altintzoglou (never heard of this guy before) for some DARK ambient. At times kind of factory/industrial vibes but no beats or anything like that, just an atmosphere of walking through a huge reverberating space. Some parts remind me of In Slaughter Natives but without rhythm and vocals. I really need to check out what Malignant Records has released in the last 10 years or so as I only have (heard) a few random releases here and there.

The last few days for me have been the new L.White Records comp and various Solmania releases from a long time ago---one has to love those modified guitars!

Haven’t been listening to anything all day but the sounds of traffic from the freeway behind our house and the airplanes/jets from the 2x aeropuertos we live between.

Bastard Noise - RRRevenge (self-released) - The ol' RRR diss record. First time I heard it, I wrote it off as a middle of the road BN release. Revisiting it has catapulted it into at least the top 10 of their discography. So much psycho/weird experimentation going on here.

Max Julian Eastman - Zabriske/Manor (Satatuhatta) - Max played my neck of the woods last weekend, and we ended up trading a bunch of stuff. This disc is definitely the best thing I have heard this year so far. The grit of harsh junk on tape meeting chopped n screwed sensibilities is a match made in heaven for me.

Kiran Arora – Wilderness Years CD (Fantasy Knife)

Brand new and exciting album from Kiran! This kind of came out of nowhere. Wormwood Scrubs is one of my favorite albums in 2020 and Formication is one of the best albums on Prose Nagge which sits alongside some heavy hitters.

Really well-developed dynamics and an extremely wide range of sounds on each track. Sounds move from minimal electro-acoustic and develop to outright harsh noise and back again. However, everything is balanced with an attentive and detailed methodology and never sitting in one pocket for too long. Everything is always evolving and quickly. There are modular synth sounds melded into the cacophony, more a subtle filigree to the other tones and sounds, never overbearing or too up-front.

All of this forms a very surreal, dream-like, and unique album. I love the label name Fantasy Knife and think it paints an accurate description of the sounds created by Kiran in his solo efforts as well as his other project Seepage. By the way, there is also a new double CD album and tape out by that project.

Easily an early contender for album of the year despite having been recorded in 2021. What else does he have tucked away in the vault?

Seepage – Tertium Quid 2CD (Fantasy Knife)

This one is freaky-deeky. Truly bizarre and out there harsh noise. It sounds like you took a mountain of pedals and synths and proceed them through a fax machine and then recorded that onto a VHS tape. I need more time to wrap my head around this one. There are moments that remind of me AOL and the old internet dial tones. The first couple tracks sound like broken down and brutalized sounds processed through old technology but somehow modern.

Album title makes perfect sense tertium quid is defined as "Something that cannot be classified into either of two groups considered exhaustive; an intermediate thing or factor."

The third is a kind-of cosmic drone that sounds filtered through the prisms of a diamond and the chimes of grandfather clocks. Completely weird fantasy dreamscape.

Fourth track kicks you back in with bizarro harshness out of 90s techno-wizardry. So fucking weird and perfect. 23 Minutes Into The Future is a great title. This one is harsh and shrill and moments of crunch all funneled through a cathode ray tube.

Final track is a brutal 37+ minute epic of the same quality of the previous tracks, but just on a grander scale.

Another contender for album of the year.

Thanks for sharing these here! Very excited to hear them both, especially that Seepage double CD. I've been listening to the CD on Phage Tapes quite often again lately. One of if not my favorite current harsh noise project.

From today:
Macronympha - Baroque - Picked up this reissue on Industrial Recollections from New Forces recently. Just now hearing for the first time.

Form Hunter - Overripe - Fruits and vegetables ought to be used as a theme in noise more often.

John Wiese & Aaron Dilloway - Sniper Counter Sniper - I don't recall seeing a whole lot of people talk about this disc when it dropped but it quickly became one of my favorite collaborations. For some reason it is no longer on bandcamp, but the YouTube Rippers have made it streamable there. John Wiese's sonic manipulation wizardry pairs wonderfully with Dilloway's tape loops, and they are still very present throughout although in various states of mangling and processing.

Short playlist from last night:

MO*TE - Kill The Sun CD on Dada Drumming
Dada Drumming's description really says everything you need to know about this disc. I'm a big fan of the CD in DVD case packaging, which allows for larger artwork and inserts, and this release has both and they look excellent. I can't say I'm well-versed on MO*TE's discography but this one really intrigued me so I picked it up. I'm glad I did, highly recommended. FFO dense exploratory synth driven noise with a great deal of tonal qualities yet still extremely harsh.

Amphibian - Hanging Nettles - Small Mercies
I was fortunate enough to pick this up in a trade. Two solid 10ish minute tracks of layered scrap metal abuse. Wide range of sounds throughout. Small Mercies packaging is some of my favorite out of currently operating labels, simple and effective. Hope to hear more from this project in the future.

Merzbow - Pulse Demon.
5 weeks in bus. My plan is to checkout a lot of noise releases I've been planning to listen.

Pulse Demon has been bit problematic for me before being as loud as it is. Either my ears are more fucked nowadays or I've gotten myself a better devices to listen to music or at least better adjustment for the volume.

Just listened to the savage gospel / incapacitants split - good stuff! incapacitants are one of my favorites, first time hearing savage gospel i think.
also:

"peace of a virtual reality grave" by green lawnmower blood which i mainly picked up a few months back due to the name and cool retro
3D computer art.

T.E.F. / Prurient / Richard Ramirez split.
love prurient, heard good things recently about T.E.F. but have not listened before, have not listened to a lot of RR either but enjoyed that part of the split as well

"Animal Liberation - Until Every Cage Is Empty" by merzbow
picked this up with some other releases on a whim a while back, enjoyed it.
