Releases of note (so far) for 2023

Post by xIncorruptibleCorpse777x »

Thought starting it now would make it easier to keep track of them for year-end lists. Btw should December 2022 releases be added? Stuff from late December the year before people make lists usually get overlooked. I don't know how many people included White Gold - 3 or Wasteland Jazz Ensemble - ST on their lists (aside from Untitled Zine for the latter), you know?

Hanzo Hasashi & Developer - One (Bizarro Warrior)
Incapacitants - Oxen Man's Uneasiness (Oxen)
Linekraft - Chaos State (Total Black)


reissues:

Macronympha - Amplified Humans (Freak Animal)
Macronympha - Baroque (Freak Animal)
Macronympha - Membranes and Black Holes (Freak Animal)
Masonna - Ejaculation Generator (Total Black)

obscure Freudian slip here?
But he was always more concerned with making his guitar sound like a dying horse, more than anything else.

Heard Beton Tåge - Formless today which I noticed was released this year. Pretty interesting recording.

This one popped up out of nowhere, at least for me, only to surprise me that the project had been going for a good some years at least. And that everything I've encountered has been stellar. Verging on CYESS AFXZS level cinematic territory. Worthy of the enthusiastic release blurb from the label.

I liked it a lot, however there was an aspect in there somewhere that stopped me going whole hog crazy in love with it. Perhaps precisely BECAUSE of that cinematic quality which tends not to be something I look for that often in my noise. It's clearly a project which tries out a lot of very interesting, different things which on the one hand I love, adore in fact, yet on another makes me really notice the parts that don't work as well. Who knows. The point is it was OF NOTE. I'll definitely be spinning it again soon.

reissue:

Knurl - Invection (self-released by Alan this time; was originally put out by Skeleton Dust)

I have this and it's good. Great scrap-metal noise.

I think I get you. And no doubt some nice fertile terrain to get digging into right there. To explore cum exploit a tension between (more or less) conspicuous intent and constantly seeking to undermine that intent. Perhaps here to describe a quality that serves any kind of (the preferred sort of) sound work, aka the more willfully exploratory, but I like to imagine noisepervs as better poised to work the fields so speak.

Was just, as in minutes ago, listening to BT's Bruised Contour (2018) thinking the project is more than willfully vested in the principle of fucking with their own program, ridiculous bings and bongs absolutely ruining (or punctuating) the harsh moment, in the best possible way(s).

I was going to unpack this a bit in the first post but ran out of steam. So here's a second run at the "cinematic" descriptor, duly acknowledging my tendency to play fast and loose with descriptors, but which for me would easily accomodate projects like Hum Of The Druid, Jeph Jerman, Remnants. And a fair chunk of the Satatuhatta roster while I'm at it.

In this paragraph I'm going to call it a self-evident spatial awareness or as previously framed a (sense of) coherent intent as to how the elements are parsed- in space, and no less importantly in time. If this sounds like music, it is, and so a potential (if I'd say interestingly) "dead" end around which noise might be forever coiling itself, as though ever poised to puncture perceived threats to vacate the core (a la spastic, unhinged, de-ranged, WTF, William Bennet Is My Dick, &c), accepting that a host of other, more rarified (or militant), cores will very likely have been proposed along the way.

The new Deathprod is really great. Shocked I never see him mentioned that much in any noise circles. He is an absolute legend to me.

Really excited about the Solmania "Highdrophobia" LP on Urashima.

Also the Merzbow "Noise Matrix" DLP on Hospital. I have the CD version but will probably pick it up because this is the top notch Merzbow era I'm most partial to.

The Primitive Wings - Morphosis CD on Satatuhatta is one of my favorite noise releases I've heard recently. I'm not sure if it's the choices in sound/approach, the pacing, or the overall vibe but this disc really hits all the right spots. In reality it's probably some specific combination of all of those components. Highly recommended.

I'm perpetually playing catch-up. Still so much I haven't had time to properly absorb or listen to at all from 2022 and earlier.

2023 doesn't look any better with possibly even more new stuff in that I have only barely heard well enough to properly absorb, or not heard at all yet, or else simply didn't move the needle enough to call it "AOTY material".

Really unsexy answers, but Incapacitants Oxen Man's Uneasiness (not quite what I was anticipating, but pleasantly surprised) and the split with Savage Gospel are the two newer releases that stand out as highlights so far.

Worth - Hamper CD
Ants In The Afterbirth CS
Incipientium - Limbo CS
Violent Shogun - Breath And Steam CD
Presage - Venerated CS
Eyes Of The Amaryllis - Lunchtime On Earth 7"

But there's so so much I haven't found the time to digest in full yet, like the Christian Mirande LP. And plenty of stuff already mentioned previously here, like Colley, Incapacitants etc. Piles and piles of neglect. Sigh...

Forgot all about Moozzhead's Thighmaster (I've had it in the top of my computer stack since ripping it almost a month ago). I overlooked adding it on Discogs and I can't remember release dates for shit without sorting my collection by date and referencing that.

Definitely a standout in terms of "elevated standard approach" (scare quotes for talking-out-of-ass emphasis). So satisfying!
