TESLA TAPES, 2013 The latest Tesla Tapes transmission (#4) features four tracks of proper drones, analog drum patterns and all sorts of distorted electronics from Chris Haslam aka Dwellings, one of the members of Manchester-based outfit Gnod . Tesla Tapes is the band's own imprint and it is safe to say that you should definitely keep a good eye on it. Good stuff! DWELLINGS - Dont Say Nothing by Tesla Tapes DISCOGS // BUY DIGITAL
HYDRA HEAD RECORDS, 2013 // LP // BUY: VINYL / DIGITAL Another week, another Dominick Fernow (Vatican Shadow, Prurient) record. I wonder if this guy ever sleeps. Anyway, Hydra Head just put out this devastating split 123 by Fernow and fellow noise explorer Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Scorn, etc.). Proper sonic assault to kick off the new year! Worship Is the Cleansing of the Imagination by JK Flesh / Prurient
I love when record labels offer free digital download with the purchase of vinyl. It saves me a lot of time as I don't need to rip the wax in order to listen to it on my laptop or on my iPod. But here's the problem: Sadly, many labels only offer MP3 downloads.. and that sucks. Just give me FLAC or don't bother. Really. I'm sure it's fixable, right?
TELEFUNKEN, 1980 // LP / BUY: VINYL Stunning Berlin school record and one of my favorite LPs to come out of Germany from the late 70s/early 80s period. Produced by Klaus Schulze and released on the legendary Telefunken label, this wonderful piece of wax set me back almost $50. But talk about money well spent: this record is epic in every sense of the word.
ASTRO:DYNAMICS, 2012 // CASSETTE / BUY: CASSETTE / DIGITAL Lovely second release from the Swedish producer Axel Backman, aka 1991 - a follow-up to his debut High-Tech High-Life cassette on Opal Tapes. Out via London-based Astro:Dynamics imprint, 1991 fuses lo-fi electronics, vintage tape distortion and dark synths into one hybrid of an album. If you're into the Pye Corner Audio type of sound, you'll definitely enjoy this. The track "Distortion of Time" is worth the release price [...]
THE SECRET INITIATIVE, 2012 // 123 / BUY: VINYL I have to admit I've never heard of this mysterious label until one of my fellow music-obsessive friends raved about it on Twitter. The A side, "East Of The Northern Star," is a proper dubbed-out early Detroit techno trip and the B-side, "Half a Life Ago," doesn't disappoint as well. The anonymity factor sure adds even more to the mystery so if anybody have any intel who's behind it, please do let me know!
URASHIMA, 2012 // LP / BUY: VINYL Intense analog drones courtesy of Italian noise producer Marco Corbelli, aka Atrax Morgue , directly inspired by the 1974 Italian movie of the same name. Corbelli apparently commited suicide by hanging back in 2007. Originally released in 2001 on cassette, the record has finally been remastered and reissued with the permission of the Corbelli's family. 140 gram red vinyl and limited to 99 copies.
