Artist: BARKLEYS BARNYARD CRITTERS
Title: Mystery Tail
Format: DVD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This animation tells the animated tale of Barkley and that dogs life with his band the Barnyard Critters.

While away the evil record label (IM Fang) finds a devilishly constructed replacement. Watch as Barkley combs his way back to the battle of the bands and lays it all on the line. Animation on the this release is hand drawn in parts, uses 3-D animation in others, and features live action characters in exciting sequences reminiscent of the Banana Splits. This will appeal to fans of the Cartoon Network, Spongebob, and the like."  - Load.

Artist: BLACK PUS
Title: Primordial
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"BLACK PUS is BRIAN CHIPPENDALE (LIGHTNING BOLT) and on this, their fifth full-length, a lot of the looped drum pop that has been percolating in this projects gene pool is drawn so much closer to the surface. Insanely long saccharine loops are pushed, pulled, screwed and tattooed all over your face. With this ammo, an enduring record of stone-etched brute pop is forged. Comrade, now is the time, take up the fight, strap this pack on and blast off into the land where Space Shuttles no longer tread." - Load.

Artist: BRAINBOMBS
Title: Singles Compilation
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The Brainbombs use a horn, scraping guitars & the mindset of a mentally impaired killer to bring some dark damage to the putrid remains of the corpse of rock music. When the band started, they were much more in line with the European industrial scene of the time. Though they use the tools of the rock trade, Brainbombs instead breath from the fart-helmet of minimal repetitious overload. To this a drugged out horn floats in the mix. The collection of songs on this release documents the bands first seven years of exceedingly hard to come by singles plus bonus tracks." - Load.

Title: Urge to Kill
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Swedens Brainbombs have been carpet bombing eardrums since the mid-80s with their sadist aktions, so Load Records is proud to roll out the brown carpet for the vinyl reissue of their 1999 classic. Be warned, sensitive listener, that this record traffics in some adult subject matter: driving around in your car, being tired, picking up hitchhikers & killing them with hammers & screwdrivers. If this bothers you I am sure there is more pleasant music out there, but for the rest of us, there is Brainbombs." - Load.

Artist: CLOCKCLEANER
Title: Auf Wiedersehen
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"A lasting gravestone release from Philadelphias CLOCKCLEANER packs in more drama than your mama with enough bad attitude to make the food court cry. Since 2007s release of Babylon Rules, CLOCKCLEANER have toured the trailer park areas of the United States as well as conquering the scorched earth of Australia. During this time the band recorded this 4-song EP length record that sharpens their midnight howl in a direction only hinted at in previous releases. The band now operates in a deathly throb that beats like the dying heart of a lonely man. JOHN SHARKEYs voice lays the gloom on like a cyanide capsule hitting a vat of acid with you strapped into the chair for the ultimate death ride." - Load

Artist: COUGHS
Title: Secret Passage
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Coughs are a clamouring six piece wrecking crew with two drummers, a sax/keyboardist, a bass player, a guitarist, bass player and an unhinged lead singer. This motley crue comes at you with a hotwired milkshake of punked-out Red Bull rock. Easily putting on the most memorable live shows of the 2000s, lead singer Anya Davidson is a frothing wraith of unquestionable furious intent. Backed by a double drummer band using discarded 55 gallon oil barrels, Coughs brings the tribal whoomp to a blurry sandwich of fuzzed out organ/sax riffery and guitar slice. This is the new ROCK, be here at GROUND ZERO! Their previous record on Load Records Fright Makes Right, raised the bar on new panic-stricken punk stylings, and this record moves the limbo stick to impossible heights with its hi-fi/no-fi recording making it so hard for you to fight the feeling." - Load.

Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Daily Life are a two piece from Providence, RI & have emerged with a sugar glazed classic of monstrous icy proportions. Necessary & Pathetic sketches out a sputtering romantic vision replete with horny armies emerging from the darkness set to a lush trash strewn landscape equipped with sputtering drumbot rhythms & croon power set to 10 to ensure moist thongs. This is not a lo-fidelity stab at synth-pop but a fully formed set of songs executed with maximum vision. Limited to 500 copies." -Load

"Vinyl only release. Dead Air is essential hard rock for creepy people in the food court.

Title: Live In Japan: Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: Load

"Documenting a 2002 sojourn to Japan that featured some slathering improv between Jim ORourke (synth, noise), Mats Gustafsson (sax, noise), and Thurston Moore (guitar, noise)." - Load.

Artist: EXCEPTER
Title: Throne
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Like a group groped Helen Keller all too drugged out to protest, the New York City based EXCEPTER weaves a dangerous course through the orange cones of cortex caressing sound. Drawing from boom-box emitters as disparate as CHROME, COMUS, and that weird-ass Indian techno music you heard eating that Somoza. Frequently lumped in with bands in their zip code like GANG GANG DANCE, SIGHTINGS, and ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and the NO NECK BLUES BAND, they are actually much more of a confrontational question mark. Lots of floor crawling stage exclamations make the band more slippery than a greased watermelon. With a lineup jamming out unclear instrumention but perhaps including detritus of Casios, battery needin samplers, six string part catalogs and occasional percussion, they manage to craft a deeply and creepily eerie sound that includes sounds from all over the radio dial. One could easily relax to this record and have ones heart forget to stop beating. Two of the songs on the record, "Jrone (Two)" and "Jrone (Three)" are on the "KA" record, but in extremely mutilated formats due to reworkings to the point that they lie naked and throbbing like a gum wrapper in Gitmo Base." - Load.

Artist: FAT WORM OF ERROR
Title: Pregnant Babies Pregnant with Pregnant Babies
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Iron Valleys bedazzled bunch spring forth with a stunner of a record that drones, moans, chortles and squeaks in completely unexpected ways. Beefheart-soaked and strangulated guitar tactics, double mutter drumming, and bass all collide in uncharted territory with hysterical vocal yelps to make this record advance to the head of the class in your record pile.Think of this band in the unlikely company of the real R n R Hall of Famers like Half Japanese, Thinking Fellers Local 182, and Arab On Radar. Load Records is insisting you listen to this record as it features instrumental diversity with horns, synths, basses, guitars, and all manners of percussion. The songs on this record are not all storm and flash as there are moments of quiet beauty, like a candy bar found in a pair of pants not worn for months. A truly refreshing listen, its got spasm and moan." - Load. CD also available.

Title: Saddle Up
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"FNU Ronnies have been burning the long one on this platter, emerging with a masterpiece of sealed plastic heavy on heady froth. For those that demand rock fury it is here in buckets. The sound on this LP is a murky tunnel of punked out alien sounds with dirty sounds & ideas last talked about at NASA around the time of the last faked moon landing. So if future sounds are where you lay your jammy pack, this LP is gonna be playing where you park. Comes in intense gatefold jacket." -Load.

Title: Ron Pistos Real World
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Vinyl only release limited to 650. Essential reissue of the 1983 classic by Melbourne, Australias Fungus Brains. While it does feature a horn and unbridled guitar heaviosity from a very young Mick Turner (Dirty Three, Venom P. Stinger, Sick Things, Cat Power), it also sounds current with other AU records of the time from bands like the Birthday Party. This record received recognition in both Forced Exposure & Touch & Go zines at the time. Only approach if you like rock music & hallucinatory free range sounds." - Load.

"Scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced and peppered American free rock from a Clinton-era three piece. This Miami trio left rug burn on modern music in the 90s. Here a deluxe remastering of their out of print releases with a swank digipak filled with sweaty photos & heart-racing energy sounds. Complies the long out of print self released tour 12-inch, the Cherry Smash live 10-inch, Live at Salon Zwerge 12-inch, Pelt & Frosty spilt 7-inches and the De Stilj 7-inches." -Load

"Clevelands HOMSTUPIDs new record is a tunnel ride through a reverb soaked youth hall that spreads confusion like manure in the spring soil. Fast, noisy, garage rock. A buffet of great taste and unparalleled ear fakery. Dont worry, its skull music so you can rest your nappy dome assured. Limited run of 500 CDs. No Export to the UK." -Load

Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"San Franciscos The Hospitals have arrived with their second record guaranteed to confuse the garage rock crowd something powerful. The records got plenty of their smothered, covered and muffled sounds of the last record, but with an extra helping of what the fuck. At the same time, its got hooks as big as an oil well fire burning bright. On their most recent 12", The Hospitals go do some covers and this may give you an idea of what to expect: Harry Pussy, the Homosexuals, the Kinks, and Royal Trux. The Hospitals are a two piece with drums and guitar... vocals ping pong in all manners like a drug holiday weekend."

Price: $17.00
"Providence duo, HUMANBEAST present twelve expertly assembled songs spanning some definite NC017/XXX topics, flourished by dark electronic pop classicism with crunch beats and squealing synth cackles. Heels are pointy and the legging is sheer, so prove it in the inter zone set up in the woofer thrust of Humanbeast." -Load.

Artist: IMPRACTICAL COCKPIT
Title: To Be Treated
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Diaspora tribesmen from the swamp stricken parishes of New Orleans laid this doubly effective soul stroke to tape before the waters rose. The sounds they get burrow to the heart of the matter with reverb tanked slo-mo and urban howl forming a durable disc of genuine interactive musicality. A keeper and a grower. This is the bands umpteenth record and they really stretch out on this record and unfurl. You can hear their patented brand of lethargo Flipper-isms as if from a tunnel down. Also coming through is some noontime yodeling the Kirkwoods perfected on Meat Puppets II, slowed to a chug. Definitely on their own musical plane to be reckoned with." - Load. CD also available.

Artist: KITES
Title: Hallucination Guillotine / Final Worship
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"One-man organic sturm and scowl, while 2006s Peace Trials was a blend of campfire-informed Wilheim Reich downer crunch and burn, this new release journeys into deeper tunnels of solid frozen anthracite. While definitely part of the contemporary American noise scene, KITES (CHRIS FORGUES) blends percussive chug and homemade sine wave generation into a dynamic somewhere in between early 80s electro schoolyard loiterers Throbbing Gristle and Sheffields Cabaret Voltaire. Where Peace Trials took the song form to an almost confusing and happy place, songs on the new record feature a colder tone. Gone are the stringed instruments of the last record, replaced with more home constructed oscillation batteries. Disembodied voices ping-pong from speaker to speaker, dry percussive chatter fills the headphone foam and you are prisoner in a room you can never leave." - Load

Artist: KITES
Title: Peace Trials
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Rewired neural strum and groam from the one man operation known as Kites. One minute EZ sounds pump from your jambox, the next a squaretone boxes you upside the head. Very much in the tradition of new school noize croppers such as Wolf Eyes and Die Yellow Swans, but turbolaced with a mutant virus of melody and folkery. Yes, acoustica based acid melt. Features a (beautiful)collaboration with Erin Rosenthal from Udog. Kites has played with the cream of todays new sounds krewz including Wolf Eyes, Double Leopards, Hair Police and many others and is considered a master on his own homemade equipment." - Load.

Title: Royal Paint With Metallic Gardener from the United States
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Hyper real poundings for the short bus from this one man electrical system operator. Simple songs taken to the edge of the cliff. Really simple songs, a virtual Casey Kasem Top Ten within one CD buried deep within a blanket. Kites has toured the netherworld of the Middle West of the United States of America and put out a shingle that few can deny. It may look like a man fighting a machine, but the battle is for your mind. Shows with Neon Hunk, Mindflayer and the Hair Police have resulted in unsupervised surgery and caused at least three (3) Amber Alerts. Join now for chewy choogle." - Load

Artist: KITES/PRURIENT
Title: Load Split Series #4
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Another jammed-elevator mismatch between two of Providence, RIs hottest pedal jackers and circuit board melters. Kites has a record on Load already and this side of the split evokes a crunchy square toned melodic flair with organic almost organ-fueled Disneyland melodies. These are the rockers. Prurient is another Providence-based sound artist doing low toned rumble jammed up against cassette culture screech. Live shows are a blur of power and volume. Yes the cream of the noise crop. This record is a bit more subdued in all out attack and more drenched in total murk-o-phonic atmosphere. Percussive chug and downer vibes." - Load.

Artist: LIGHTNING BOLT
Title: Earthly Delights
Format: Double LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"After scrapping two entire full lengths, LIGHTNING BOLT is finally ready to unleash new music to the masses. Taking the lessons of extreme metal, blood-brother marrying them to expansive and explosive song form and applying it to Olympic training methods, Earthly Delights uses electric stimulus to shock smile technology to worldwide domes. This is what 2,000 years of evolution and the invention of electric instrumentation introduced into the tank of hook force can do to you. This record has the sound of a ten piece band with a much tighter pay scale, matched with the sonics of military cartoons. Swank artwork by BRIAN CHIPPENDALE." -Load.

Title: First Record
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"This is a CD re-release of the LP-only release from 1997. Added to this CD are bonus tracks that were first available on a cassette companion to the 1997. The LP was had silk-screened covers and was available in an edition of 750 copies. Since 1997 quite a bit has happened with Lightning Bolt. Theyve received lots of press in publications like AP, the Wire, Index, and lots of others. Load Records is proud to present this first release in a new format from this shape-shifting, form-destroying, ear-crunching unit. Although their live shows have been marked by jet blasts of delicate sound shapes, this release shows sees the band playing with long sticky pieces of sonic taffy. It was recorded in the bands Fort Thunder space, this CD shows them using delicate tools to kill very large creatures. This record is long and elaborate in its power but has some surprising delicate moments. The record also pulse with hyper-humanoid percussion matched with bowel loosening bass doing infinite hammer-ons to the gods." - Load.

Artist: LIGHTNING BOLT
Title: Oblivion Hunter
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Since forming in 1994, Lightning Bolt has taken a zig-zag path to recording, playing and touring. Following in this pattern is Oblivion Hunter, a collection of the bands epic recording sessions over the last few years. From the get-go the sound is amped-up and free: bass sounds jump out of the speaker cones that conjure up ears in alien propulsion systems, nights in faraway wind tunnels, and brutal beatings at Gitmo. Drums and assorted FX pop in and out with the resolve of a finger quivering over the A-bomb button, drunk on power. This LP is one of the few necessary things in your grim stretch of existence, played by a band with 20 years of total conviction to the destruction of your ear drums." - Load.

"The much anticipated follow-up to 2001s album Ride the Skies, Wonderful Rainbow pulls out all the stops. Recorded loud and proud over a year, this record grabs your throat with 8 songs of bass so nasty it seers human flesh on contact and drums so mighty they liquefy brain cells on impact. Yes, reference two-piece/crazy/heavy rock bands like RUINS, SLAYER and (Soul Discharge-era) BOREDOMS, but youll come up a few cents short on every pound of this two-ton heifer. LIGHTNING BOLT fill rooms all over this land, and this record is gonna fill the bill for those wanting extreme and heavy rock music taken to the top of the mountain. This is also useful for late-nite dance parties." -Load.

Artist: METALUX & JOHN WIESE
Title: Exoteric
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"A cold and chopped journey awaits you in this collaboration between electronic duo Metalux and sound levitator, John Wiese. Vocals are chopped and oscillation wave forms move themselves into long sheets of ribbon thin taffy with confusing intent. The middle ground in this collaboration has a coldwave appeal that clicks with fans of throbbing rhythmic noise like Wolf Eyes and Forcefield. This record is not noise however, more a full blown Kevorkian cocktail of reverberated malaise. The seven unnamed tracks flow one into the next with a rebounded tape smack that does not forget foot bounce, while keeping the main dome fully occupied with variable speed vox fukkk and equipment groan. This one is for the heads and takes notions of either artist to places where neither artist is safe going. This is for late nights and early mornings." - Load.

Artist: MOUTHUS
Title: Saw a Halo
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Brooklyn-based duo BRIAN SULLIVAN and NATE NELSON have crafted a considerable body of work since forming in 2002. Of the many records on labels they have released over the years: Ecstatic Peace, Psych-o-Path, Important, Troubleman, Music Fellowship, this record comes as their first studio record. Recorded in nude fidelity at Rare Book Room by SAMARA LUBELSKI, this recording realizes the furious skin pound and crackling amp burn the duo is so capable of, and adds an organic clarity. MOUTHUS are very much in the school of NY bands like Excepter and Sightings that merge hard and sometimes velvety psych sounds with a pioneering spirit of experimentation. Mouthus do not forget the rock and in fact melt flatware into silvery puddles. Over the course of two segmented suites, the band journeys deep into the no-mans land between the kick drum and guitar amplifier and returns with the golden teeth of the dead. Nate Nelson records with many other bands, among them RELIGIOUS KNIVES and AFTERNOON PENIS. Brian Sullivan records with other bands such as ESKIMO KING and WHITE ROCK." - Load.

Title: Rooting for the Microbes
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"From the sooty corridors of the rusted out skeleton of Baltimore, Nautical Almanac has taken the urban crack of electronic halftime entertainment and dragged it squarely into the times of horse and buggies. As the band clearly states no electricity or computers were used in the music making process. The sounds generated are from machines specifically built for the recording process or from real lab experience. Custom equipment made of weird alloys of plastic, leather, wire, and rubber. Longtime collaborators Carly Ptak and Twig Harper worked on this record along with 10 other guests from wall-to-wall of this saggy country: Forcefield, Paperrad and Costes associates were all involved. Nautical Almanac has records on Hanson and is an integral forefather of much of the MidWest noise scene. The band has many other releases on its own label Heresee. Wanna understand the throb of shirtless noise boys and girls in Michigan? Climb onto this crisco-coated locomotive and get the real deal of steel. Answers not included and sound not found." - Load.

"As the dust settles and your tinnitus roars back to life, you wonder about Prurient. Last ear blast on Load, Black Vase went for the jugular from the git go with sporadic percussion and piercing square toned filthy noise. Just the thing for a rough day during a U.S.-sponsored war. This time out, Pleasure Ground oozes with a new shade of grey from the crayon set. A new dark waved sensibility takes hold. The seconds after a corpse appears on a riverbank, and the what the fuck am I gonna do slips from your lips, the Valhalla horn of Prurient trumpets! This takes the difference between a noise record and symphonic doom and splits the difference. Brutality has a new form as it mows down school cafeterias full of trench-coated losers to a headphone soundtrack of deadly church organ/orgasm." - Load.

"Houstons RUSTED SHUT has been at it in one form or another since 1986 at least. This record is the work of a band determined to work out some difficult shit, so bear witness. Dead is not for the faint of heart or those with weak kidneys. DON WALSH spins a negative vortex of such power that clothing, food wrappers and other loose items are easily sucked into its encompassing downer orbit. The music backing this maelstrom references hard rock superheroes with no sense of fidelity: The tinittus of Lemmy Kilmeister and the cochlea pain of GG Allin." - Load.

Combing a dense percussive chug and a megaphoned fart helmet the band emerges with a sound closest to the neck ache of powerful metallic headbang and the distorted totality of cheap speaker decay. The band has been known to employ up to 16 separate drummers and 12 feet of vertical bass amplification, so they are no strangers to erecting long standing brown waves of sound, an onslaught of bass boomed rock totality." - Load.

Reference weirdo deconstructo outfits like Einsturzende Neubauten, (mid-period) Black Dice, and Mainliner. This is the sound between the guitar strings, inside the bass amp, and within a drum stick. Yes, the truth. If punk rock used to mean fucking shit up and doing it your own way, this record erects a mile high middle finger facing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame." - Load.

Minimal, yes. Previous records have gone from favorites at magazines as chocolate and peanut butter as the Wire and Terrorizer. Past records have been steaming knee burn befuddled by German technoid impulse and Yoko-damaged Beatles-busting intensity.

"Bass, drum and guitars meshed together with a synthetic future think tanks. Literally the sound of human progress darkened with a profound fidelity so loud the dark matter of the universe quivers in a deadly orgasm. This is the bands sixth album and takes the notch so much higher than previous efforts in terms of songwriting and production. With Andrew W.K. as a producer, some of the caustic curtains that swathed past albums have been parted to reveal a coldly pulsing artificial heart. And the beat of this heart sounds off in an alien tongue of bass and drums. Guitars descend like unforgiving sheets of napalm from the skyline. Songs pop out of this miasma that tick off icy coolness with piano and vocal stylings. Indeed, hot and cool. To accentuate the difference this album has versus previous Sightings records, a Scott Walker cover is included. This is a rock album, but a rock for times coming, a sound of future days.

"While Minneapolis band Skoal Kodiak has a prestigious lineage (Quad Muth, The Cows & Seawhores), theyve already released a 12" a few years back, & this record ups the ante large. Echoes of the hard funk jut up against Mars Rover squelch to create something totally timeless & new but also borne of a future so toxic that there is no escaping. I dare you to listen & not be immediately summoned to movement. Buy one, buy several, you are now a foot soldier with a flesh uniform, go out and preach the word of Skoal Kodiak from a tall structure loudly." -Load.

"SWORD HEAVEN is a Columbus duo using sheet metal, electronics, horn, drums and treated vocals to bring a supercluster of black clouds into your zone.

Title: Gone
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Columbus, OH two-piece horror sound unit, Sword Heaven clock in with a sweaty waterboarded masterpice of claustrophobic proportions. Fun house mirrors and stretched out faces yell from behind flaming curtains while a neanderthal cave bat clubs your dome over and over and over. These are the sounds -- the kids are not all right and that is all right." - Load.

Title: Trash As The Trophy
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Their brand of wiry songsmithery is sure to embarrass those with weak kidneys and delicate sensibilities, but, for the rest of us, this will provide some proof that life is not quite over, and there are others looking to spoil the cultural soup. Adult topics for times of missing children. Milk cartons featuring pictures of missing middle fingers." -Load

Artist: VAMPIRE CANT
Title: Key Cutter
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"This 2005 recording collaboration of Vampire Belt, the long running Western Massachusetts duo of Chris Corsano (frequent YOD associate and collaborator with Jandek, John Olson, and Paul Flaherty) and Bill Nace (X.0.4.). Vampire Belt specializes in all over the kit percussion on deeply audio effected guitar histrionics. Cant is Jessica Rylans long standing vocal/electronic project. Her sound is self described as friendly, intimate and creepy like anonymous postcards sent to you by a rain soaked prisoner. And I am in no mood to argue... its got moments of beautiful song and scary blurt. The collaboration sound, you ask? Very much the collision of these two entities: the soundz of Rylans homemade electronics butting up against Naces splayed guitar, all the while punctuated by the free jizz drum rambo of Corsano. The record has several burners, and plenty of moments of parking lot moan and search. Really, a record like this has not come out since ESP-Disk released that last awful Godz record. FACT!" - Load.

You are knocked clear across the room with some ringing in your ears. In year head rebounds a pelvic grunt with flavors of dirty rock superheroes like Dwarves & The Oblivians, & your blood pumps hard." -Load.

Artist: WHORE PAINT
Title: Swallow My Bones
Format: LP
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Vinyl only release. Throwing off some fierce attitude, this three piece hit the ground running wherein wiry blank wave guitars pin down primal drum thud, aggressive howls and velvety croons. They dont hide their politics (they do have a feminist manifesto), though wed be remiss if we didnt inform you that their hearts flow with 100% molten rock, evoking such luminaries as the Jesus Lizard, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, and The Wipers. Whore Paint brings the truth with rock fury, you have been waiting for this." - Load

Artist: WIZARDZZ
Title: Hidden City of Taurmond
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"While for many this is going to be a side project of Brian Gibson, this dashboard messiah of a record is a creeping keeper. Rich Porter (he of Bug Sized Mind), adds some melody muscle to stuff some tissue into the training bra of this submarine racer. Nothing like Lightning Bolt, this is more a Tangerine soaked, dream pillow padded melodica that Kraftwerks its way into your main vein. Looking for reference points? Think Zombi, Yellow Magic Orchestra and John Carpenters Escape From NY soundtrack, .i.e smooth as butter creep scapes. Wizardzz has been accused of sporting a prog rock groove, so stuff this in your stockings you 06 version hacky sackers." -Load
