No Rent Titles
Koufar - My Name Is My Name
Mack's going all out on this one. The delayed, affected vocals make an appearance on some tracks, as do more straightforward, though bloodcurdling screams. The sounds are thick and monstrous, and samples from shows like The Wire and True Detective abound. Intensely personal, Mack's doing power electronics in a way no one else is currently.
Buck Young - Proud Trash Sound
Crumer's trying something specifically American for this noise release. Totally weird, and at times even countrified. Zoe Burke, Christian Mirande, and more make appearances in this. Sure to be a noise classic soon, Post Trash Sound is jarring and deconstructed, and somehow both abrasive and familiar.
Muyassar Kurdi - Traveling
Vocals and experimentation, roving improvisations featuring New York experimentalists Muyassar Kurdi (obviously) and Nicholas Jozwiak. Cello and bass dot the pieces, and Kurdi's phonetic details provide welcome additions. A meditation on movement, change, and perserverence.
