i_like_dog_face - Sleepless Illusions
"Recording 'Sleepless Illusions' became this personal process of
discovering the healing qualities, and structural elements of sound.
Throughout the track-list, these elements move from lowest and highest
extremes. There are moments of expressive clusters using vocals laced
with bells or machinery that lead to an ambiguous ending with no
solution. The proliferation of new technological products assimilated
into our daily lives has softened our natural senses and is in the
process of divorcing humanity from its very ‘human’-ness. It is
difficult to propose a solution for a complex developing
counter-culture. This divorce is an interruption which is painful to
process but also the inspiration for creating art; A means to restore
a connection. A sound, in general, is indescribable because it exists
outside of the material and this interests me. Its effect is
mysterious with the potential to reveal different depths of intimacy
for myself and the listener." - S.V.V.
Sunk Heaven - Where All Sides Collapse
"Sunk Heaven is Austin Sley Julian, who also performs in the contemporary no-wavish band Sediment Club. "Where All Sides Collapse" is a dark and intimate document, with songs that ooze into the sounds of self-surgery in a resonant metallic space, the acoustics of which captured in exacting, chilling detail.
'Sounds like Jandek making a dub album' - someone somewhere"
Evicshen - Klee Doll
67 minute beast of raw and dynamic synth noise by intelligent rager Victoria Shen
Kyle Flanagan - Hole in my Head
deliberately-paced darkest-before-dawn grimy tape-based anthems by Richmond ripper Kyle Flanagan - mysterious clanking, burned-out hums, destroyed sounds with just a touch of new age
Aether Jag - The Universal Veil
7 disorienting / psychedelic underground noise pop tunes from Providence resident Bridget Venuti's long-running Aether Jag project, freshly washed ashore
"This is a collection of pop songs from the last few years. I always try to create an atmosphere first and then the song comes along subsequently. I hope these songs will form a portal for spectral splendor on a foaming sea of fleshed-out fuckery. Soft soap for the apparition." - B.V.
Tavishi - Dwait
"Dwait" features live recordings of four harrowing noise compositions by Richmond-based artist and researcher Sarmistha Talukdar's Indo-experimental project Tavishi. The intensity and emotion of the performances is well-preserved here.
