"Nyoukis! The name trumps hot on the carved brass horn. Gongs crash shrill and slaves shriek aloud. You Sir! Expecting pure vocal gravy like on Carrion Hut or Hora? Madam, perhaps the holy minimal strings like that Golem grey Penderecki served us on Owl Tapes? No. Nein. Nyet. Not the fucking case pal. Four measured tracks. Two dedicated to the cats thats been making heads turn for a while now (Banana Seymour & that Dogfella exactly) but all washing up a new kind of psychedelic moss. Fresh thin tendrils, easy to snap, but determined to grow among loose grey matter late on into the next day, and the next and the next. Dry coughs and outta-wack piano chords play into Boy Scout bike repairs, test the bell, spin the wheel! Hot air leaks from a perished rubber hose. With knuckles like hazelnuts, these sounds shine like delicately laid cobblestones, laid end-to-end without no fuss or haste, they are tram tracks. Late night thumps, boof, baff and a lousy Soft Machine organ solo talks a Brighton raver down from gritted jaw oblivion. Ideas are put through the wringer in stereo effect. The domestic bric-a-brac builds up: a motorcycle revving, the dry crunch of gravel underfoot...a jumble sale of sweaty woollens, singing out through pinched throat to make un-sense of the phrase iss, sum bear-lae-um. An unexpected kitchen sink gamelan makes for a discombobulating listen. Tension is introduced via leathery lunged accordion but theres no crass crescendo. Fading out like a flu virus...

Euro voices abound in tangled syntax. Verbs sounds & nouns renamed. Sure, theres blubber and chunder...you, you, you and me thats slam-up-bang to babby titter chat for starters. Then the downs come in re-directed by taut tape loops making the ecstatic, grooving on the surface of a micron-thin bubble. The proclamation, Im right here leaves us in no doubt who you are sharing your damp bedsit with tonight, slurping up the old wine as red as pooled blood.

Another take on the stretched ritual. A parrot squawks underwater struggling for fresh O2. Furious eraser scurrying action is met with the stony silence of a 14 year old girl while apples crunch between strong white teeth. Our old friends, words, are worried and fretted in a dark experiment; turned over looking for new seams and valves to shuck and prise open like ripe clams until mucus-like muscle slips free and falls to the flagstones below.

This is a living séance with The Acrylic Widow. Wisdom from the Old Ones, the thin Venn diagram slice between frantic scuttling & sweet Miskatonic stoned." - Discombobulate.

Artist: WATARU KASAHARA/KIYOHARU KUWAYAMA/LUDO MICH
Title: Les Archives de lUnivers Amnesique Illustre
Format: LP
Label: Discombobulate
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"This new pairing of minds and techniques on a steel-grey voyage across the treacherous Ifingr river is a brief, slo-mo moment of calm, the drunken grasp for a banister before the crash of brittle chin on concrete steps. Recurring metallic hisses are overlaid with saw-tooth waves sourced from MP3s buried in the garden over a harsh winter. When the ducks loosen phlegm they shit silver dollars. Presently contact mics are attached to submarine hulls somewhere in an undersea canyon and closing the eyes opens up new patterns of pressure-roses blooming red, orange, red. Lethes master of resonant spaces and junk objects KUWAYAMA holds the reins over three chapters of spiraling horror and madness. Sounds are coaxed out ashamed and blushing: the syphilitic cough, the cracked shin bone and the greasy sheen of night sweats wired up to a nine-volt battery. Embudagonns mysterious masked man KASAHARA adds stewed tape manipulation with brush strokes that hint at a moody Goya and his bleak Pinturas negras. Specter and godfather to the NorEuro heek-a-freek underground MICH adds an ass-hiss, a stain, a pursed lip smacking to the junkyard rumble. With inserts by each artist. White vinyl. Edition of 200." -Discombobulate.
