Sick Seed - Technological Singularity

The sheer brilliance of the latest album made me revisit this, as it is definitely that kind of material that needs more digestion and various spins for me. And yes, this time this one got me. Nice song structures, even "funky" at times. Very thought-out sounds with great bursts of total aggression here and there. Strikes me as something very few people apart from SS could have pulled off.

Contortus - Violence in Heat  (CD)

I have zero remembrance of the first tape, only that I liked it at the time. Played this album back to back twice, as I was sure I missed important details during the first spin. It's damn good stuff! Really raw sounds combined nicely to make a very fierce whole. Basic agression, but clearly done with skill and over a long period of time. Recommended!

Anemone Tube - In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality  (CD)

I worship this project. The drones, atmosphere, field recordings and aesthetics just blend together so perfectly and the spiritual and philosophical backbone makes it all the more exciting. This CD is a prime example of Anemone Tube's skill. All in all beautiful and trance - inducing but still noisy and tense.

I have CDRs that I burned when CD burners became available on computers like 20 years ago and they still play fine. I guess it's a matter of CD quality and burning process (who still burns CDs in 4x speed?) It is a good format to transfer data, including music, or trade files.
As a proper support for a release? No way. If you can take the time to make an odd and annoying cover that won't fit my shelves for your CDR you might as well take the time to dub it on tape.

I guess the problem with CD-R is the short lifespan. It's not even about supposed cheapness or the fact that everyone can create one at home in 1-2 minutes, but the technical flaws. Total classics like some Strict or Atrax Morgue releases have just simply stopped working due to being "too old" and nothing more. As opposed to that, even tapes from the 80ies play just fine. So, my question is whether a CD-R is actually a real "music format" or just a temporary storage device  (however, it would lose when directly compared to a flash drive or external data storage). Of course, a pro CD-R may look neat and professional, but well...
Of course, every further aspect of the CD-R image are a result of this. Larger artists often don't agree to CD-R releases due to the negative connotations, just like a published author wouldn't agree to stapled together xerox copies of his newest work. Established labels often don't want the hassle with malfunctioning discs. Also, real CDs aren't that expensive to press anymore, which was different during the CD-R boom, if I am not mistaken. So, probably, the bad image just stems from peoples' contact with the format. I mostly see young "Bandcamp artists" selling CD-R, which makes sense in a way, but on the other hand, maybe digital sales would be just as high, if there were no physical alternative...?

It's a convenient and non-precious physical format for trading small-run music amongst friends, but otherwise I wouldn't go out of my way to spend more than a few quid on one, postage included. I love that it's a completely unappealing format for distros or music collectors that want their music to be long-lasting or profitable in years to come.

If CD-Rs are fast food, then cassettes are street food (and digital is the recipe).

better a good and well produced CDr than a shitty tape!

Does anyone know of anything like "Affliction" by Mark Hejnar? In the mood for more of these late 80's/early 90's "Mondo" kind of documentaries.

Great flick! Been wanting to see this again, but haven't managed to find any torrents online. During the heydays of music and film blogs it was possible to access copies quite easily.

I have it on VHS somewhere if somebody are interested I could part with it.

CD-r is the worst format possible. Acceptable? Never.
