Artist: IRENE MOON/ORTHO
Title: Split
Format: Picture Disc 7"
Label: Ignivomous
Country: US
Price: $7.00
"Though the term musical theater often conjures up horrific images of over-acting and lifes foibles resolved in song form, theres no inherent evil in the concept of combining the two. Lexington, Kentuckys Auk Theater offer simple pantomimes with cartoonish props, set to a soundtrack that combines a warped aural accompaniment with diegetic effects that act as guides for the narrative. Irene Moon, the groups founder, takes everyday activities and social interactions (in this case, a visit to the dentist), magnifying the absurd and surreal, to create her otherworldly scenes. On her side of this 7⿝, a split picture disc with New Yorks Ortho, one must imagine the visual aspects of ⿿Auk Dentist⿝ as clued by the music, though, with Moons penchant for the weaving of samples, electronic noises, and isolated vocal recordings, its hard to pinpoint exactly what could be happening. A ringing phone, the ominous sound of the drill, and a voice-over from what was probably a high school psychology filmstrip offer clues, but, in the end, the music neednt rely on the story, and Moons psychedelic pastiche remains just as hypnotic in its purely aural form. Ortho, capitalizes, it seems, on Moons love of entomology, with their contribution to the disc, with plenty of buzzing and flittering sound. Its not hard to imagine the music as the magnified sounds of insects, with the rapid flapping of wings, scurrying feet, and probing antennae. "Ortho demonstrates how humans would benefit by behaving more like insects⿝ is a title thats almost longer than the groups side of the slab, but its a useful guide when it comes to listening to Orthos buggy noise." - Adam Strohm (FakeJazz).

Artist: MC TRACHIOTOMY/OCCASIONAL DETROIT
Title: Split
Format: 12"
Label: Ignivomous
Country: US
Price: $12.00
"A mess-up-your-mind new LP split between two outside-the-norm screwballers. New Orleans MC Trachiotomy scores with some more of his patented, deep-in-the-game experimental hip hop stylings (including some Drum Buddy work from fellow Marginy mate Quintron), while Michigan freak sound motherhumpers Occasional Detroit just get fucked. Packaged with cover art by Devin Flynn." - Revolver.

Artist: SUKORA
Title: oeo
Format: LP
Label: Ignivomous
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Chris Sienko made me want this when he described how for a while he played this record every morning at 7AM when he got up for work and read e-mail. If you know what Sukora does -- ultra-quiet sound stuff -- that might make sense to you. Kinda puts you in that meditative early morning zone, yknow? The cool thing about Sukora is that he doesnt sound like hes doing it digitally at all, just like literally rustling paper a few feet away from microphone. You know how he listed his instrumentation in Muckraker #9: "I use old cassette recorders, paper, destroyed Macintosh, old records players, and something." You can pretty easily miss this LP while its on. In fact, the first time I put it on in the morning before work, the coffee maker alone was drowning it out. Then the heater kicked on and it was all over. So you might wanna find just the right setting in which to spin it. Try it right after the Screaming Mee-Mees!" - Blastitude: Issue 12, 2002.
