Jason Crumer - Ottoman Black
'Fresh off his solo breakthrough LP on the legendary RRR label, Future With No Chance, Jason crumer returns with Ottoman Black, an album of midnight drones and true noise. Using powerfully clear electronics as a base for declarative noise bursts, crumer manipulates the sounds with a resounding animosity. In the vein of past Hospital releases from Pedestrian Deposit and Air Conditioning, crumer yields his mean streak to an array of silences over the course of the album. The theme here is personal relations; tracks like 'Betrayal After Betrayal' have a conversational quality, both the screams and the muffles, the physicality. 'Where Were You' is an actionist-influenced piece of torture. Theres nothing not painful here, especially the quiet; the peaks are almost a relief. Ottoman Black is a stern and unforgiving universe.' Hospital Productions.
Bizarre Uproar - Amputaatio
A monumental suffocating grind that tremor with the physical density and ritual ambience of late BU saga live-performances. The material on the LP bridge eras "Vihameditaatio" (2014) to "Rape Africa" (2012); and consists of two structured compositions of lengthy, slow-crawling, torturous nature. The instrumentation and compositional strategies extend the groundwork defined on "Vihameditaatio", and is subtly balanced with "Rape Africa's" static rawness and brutally imploding gutter-vacuum. The metamorphosis of the two otic stances plus live-sound fervor, cement "Amputaatio" as a meditative and destructive volcanic mass that froth with malignant intent. All out rotten. Sheer bestiality. Total alienating filth. Recorded in the BU bunker Autumn 2014. Mastered by SS-Pekka.
Bizarre Uproar - Likainen Ehtoollinen
Urashima present a reissue of Bizarre Uproar's Likainen Ehtoollinen, originally released on tape in 2008. Bizarre Uproar is a colossal phenomenon in Finnish harsh noise scene. Throughout the years, this artist has gradually taken the Bizarre Uproar concept to more and more extreme level. Wrapped in darkness, tight as second skin - Suffocating (like) latex mask. Likainen Ehtoollinen, originally released on Filth & Violence in 2008, is the purification in filth and violence, cleansed in flesh and blood that are shit and piss, enlightenment in everlasting ejaculation. New extremes in sonic bizarre domination.
The Haters - Future Cheers
The Haters are a noise and conceptual art troupe from the United States. Founded in 1979, they are one of the earliest and most well-known acts in the modern noise scene. The group is primarily the work of the Hollywood, California-based musician, artist, writer, and film-maker GX Jupitter-Larsen, accompanied by a constantly changing line-up of other "members," usually local experimental musicians and artists in whatever town in which a Haters performance happens to take place. Future Cheers was an early astonishing cassette remastered and remixed for this reissue by GX in Los Angeles, 2016. "I destroy out of joy, not despair. I don't destroy out of anger. I destroy out of curiosity. I tear things apart to see what makes them tick. I want to take time apart to see what makes it tick-tock. I enjoy destroying everything because I enjoy leaving nothing un-destroyed. My noise acts as a kind of audio account or authentic evidence of this ceaseless, perpetual bittersweet happiness we call entropy." -- GX.
