A.E.R.- After C46 (Doomsday Transmissions, Canada) $6
After an absence of a couple of years, this cassette features new directions moving into the swirl of hypnotic loops comprising voice, guitar and found sounds. Each copy comes with individual handmade colour cover.
ARCHANGEL- Gestohlene Gut CDR (Wreck Age, Canada) $6
Those used to the ambient side of Archangel will be surprised by this release. Fifty-seven tracks of bizarre cut-ups and digital manipulations in a constant flux of texture and mood. Resembles a cartoon soundtrack based on the most irrational impulses.
ARCHANGEL- tef' hang -o- ver CDR (Wreck Age, Canada) $7
The Wreck Age re-issue programs continues with this remastered version of the cassette from a few years back. While it is missing the goodies-filled package of the tape, it does contain a wealth of bonus tracks (including film soundtracks), and the remastered tracks let us hear the ebb and flow of synths, gongs, telephones in welcome clarity.
ATMOSPHEH-RHYCXX VS. DOGGED FOR SYMPATHY- Spawned From Apathy CDR (Wreck Age, Canada) $6
Another collaboration from the incestuous Montreal family. The DFS aggro sound is stripped down to its basics and given a cosmic overhaul. Once again the original cassette is augmented with a generous amount of bonus material.
AUDIODELICA- 1993 - 1997 CDR (Planeta X, Argentina) $9
As one can guess by the title, this is a compilation of tracks recorded over a span of four years. This is is a good place to introduce yourself to this Argentinian project. While some tracks seem to hover in a melodic trance, other plunge deep into confusing whirlpools of sound.
AUTUMN TEARS- Love Poems For Dying Children Act 1 picture-disc LP (Red Stream, U.S.A.) $10
As you can probably guess from the title, a pretty dark release. Imagine Dead Can Dance scoring for the Hammer House of Horror, with layers of cathedral organ, piano, male and female voice in a cathedral-like atmosphere. Picture disc inside a printed cover with lyric sheet and poster.
DANIELE BRUSASCHETTO- Ti Amo Ubriaco C90 (Aon Distribution, Bulgaria) $6
A little less song-oriented, and a lot more raw than Daniele's work that have appeared on his CD albums. Side two is a collaboration with the Italian group All Scars Orchestra.
CLANG QUARTET- Jihad CD (Silber Records, U.S.A.) $8
Although actually one member (Scotty Irving, who has worked with Eugene Chadbourne among others), the "Clang" part of the moniker is appropriate, not to mention the live material sounds like much more than one person. An eccentric, personal vision of free-from percussion clamor, family tapes, cicadas, scuzzy distortion, and explanations.
COCK E.S.P.- The Pride Of North American Noise CD (Breathmint/Ecstatic Peace/Ignomivous/Carbon etc., U.S.A.) $11
If you had any doubts about the claims of the title, this CD (co-released by five different labels) should dispel them. The American trio create eighteen different tracks of varied noise that fly at you from every direction, never sinking into repetitive boredom.
CORPUSSE- Precious Memento CD (Total Zero, Canada) $8
Corpusse has been dubbed "philosopher poet and predator" and "king of rock 'n' roll. His new CD is perhaps one of the strangest releases to emerge from Canada. With part-operatic and part-growling rants over driving analogue electronics, and guitar noise, this is a CD you'll love or hate, but not easily forget.
DAB.AY.AH- Find The Canyon 7" EP (Suggestion Records, Germany) $6
A strange drone-rock project, incorporating layers of fuzzed-out guitars, and various layers of sound textures, blended into a big wall of sound. Maroon vinyl housed inside an equally multi-layered die-cut cover.
DOGGED FOR SYMPATHY- Handglove (The World Wasn't Made For Streetwalkers) C60 (Wreck Age, Canada) $6
Montreal techno-based music. Beats, synths and samples merge into cohesive songs- one side vocal oriented, and a second side of textured, inviting synthscapes.
DOGGED FOR SYMPATHY- Cloned Out C45 (Wreck Age Recordings, Canada) $6
Back in stock! Newest release from this Montreal industrial group. Several mixes of the title track, from catchy industrial beats, to more atmospheric and contemplative pieces.
FADLADDER- Avant Evil For Avant People CDR (Re:Set Records, U.S.A.) $7
Some of you may remember David Miller as the head of the Sick Muse label a number of years ago, as well as the experimental project ECE. Fadladder is his new project, with a sound situated in experimental industrial with roots in groups like "Too Dark Park" era Skinny Puppy and Cabaret Voltaire. This is their debut EP.
ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI/ANTIMATTER- Function Generator CD (SIRR.ecords, Portugal) $15
Limiting their sound sources to low frequencies (no higher than 100 hz), Karkowski (collaborator with The Hafler Trio, Blixa Bargeld, Merzbow...) and Antimatter (producer and mastering credits for Xenakis, Duchamp...) have created a minimal and and hypnotic work. Quiet patterns that slowly build in intensity for the deep listener.
LE.SEIGNEUR.DEABOLIQUE- 808127338 C60 (Wreck Age, Canada) $6
A combination of happy-go-lucky electronics, hazy and swirling psychedelia, and fuzzed-out guitar damage.
LE.SEIGNEUR.DEABOLIQUE- Echoes CDR (Wreck Age, Canada) $7
The final release from the Montreal maniac home-taper (now reconfigured into Adamo), with an all-around more cosmic (or kosmische?) vibe. Slightly less chaotic and more hypnotic than previous efforts, yet still strange and interesting. Digital re-issue of the cassette with bonus material.
MORPHINE BOUTIQUE- Don't Dolby The Bedroom Composers CD (Tete-a-Tete, Germany) $12
A well-produced collection of smooth IDM, crackling noise edits, haunting jazz loops, and ambience, often mixing together, and in other times set up in jolting contrasts. A lively listen...
MUTE LAKES- self-titled CDR (Curve Records/Aon Distribution, Bulgaria) $9
Dark recordings from this new Bulgarian group. The music ranges from string-synth melancholic songs, to more free-form and cavernous soundscapes. No easy comparisons.
RONTH/D.RHYTHM:O- split C80 (Nauze Muzick, Germany) $6
New split tape (including one collaboration track between both artists) featuring minimal techno pulses to dense unforgiving soundscapes.
SUBTON- Works With Fragments 7" EP (Badbeatz, Germany) $6
Side one appears to be very short blitzes of ultra-harsh noise- so short, in fact, that they almost seem to resemble the scratch tracks on hip hop DJ 12"s. Side two features longer tracks, featuring a menacing, pulsing electronic sound, filled with the hard-edged menace this German project is getting known for. Limited to 99 copies.
SVSTRIATE- Whole Year Inn CDR (Glare, U.S.A.) $8 CAD
This American project creates an interesting blend of ambient sound, harsher noise and hints of a very heavy electronica, arranged in an intriguing "and now for something completely different" progression of events.
VARIOUS ARTISTS- Behind Closed Doors CDR (Shame File, Australia) $8
An expose of Australia's little-known home taper experimental scene, some of whom are becoming a little bit better-known these days: FENETIK, KILL, HUMAN HOST, NETE, PARASITICUS DEI, UNDECISIVE GOD, ISOMER, ANNA, KETTLE.
VARIOUS ARTISTS- A Cosmic Noise Compilation: Volume 1: A Noise Byte Collective C90 (Wreck Age, Canada) $6

VARIOUS ARTISTS- Electric Chicken Volume One LP (Worm Interface, England) $11

VARIOUS ARTISTS- Fire Crawl With Me LP (Bar La Muerte, Italy) $10
Coming from the Bar La Muerte folks, here is a good collection of tracks falling between dark electronic music and crazed noise-rock (and the strange places in between). AL:FREDA, DANIELE BRUSASCHETTO, DSE, LIPS VAGO, (R), LAVA, DEEP.
VARIOUS ARTISTS- Instrumental Compilation I C70 (Plan Eleven, Canada) $6

VARIOUS ARTISTS- Songs From 20th Century Homes LP (Old Gold, U.S.A.) $9
If there was any city's tape culture that had absorbed so many different underground forms of music, and create a large number of personal mutations, it would be that of Winnipeg, Manitoba, which this LP documents. RUDY BUST, DRUE AND MYLES LANGLOIS, NDF, ALIEN HYBRID, ALBATROSS, ADRIAN SHALOM WILLIAMS, POT ROAST, THE UNTANNED HIDE OF A YOUNG COW, MICHAEL DUMONTIER, EYEBALL HURT & THE MEDICINE, TOM ELLIOT, GO ACTION WITH DA-DA SOUND, THE GARAGE PEOPLE, TODD MARTIN.
