BEST RECORDS AND TAPES

OCHU - Unproduktiw 12" (Verlautbarung)
Came out new years eve 2018, so what the hell. Some sort of perfect middle ground between his more rough tape days and his latter day skills. Tvärsnitt was a hazy mountain trip, Unproduktiw is pure unease. Master at work.

V/A - Bidödaren 12" (Ferns Recordings)
Super solid compilation, both thematically and quality wise. Colley, Small Cruel Party, Tarab, Menche, BJ Nilsen etc...

PIECES - S/t 12" (White Centipede Noise)
The 2013 cassette was brilliant. This takes off from its endnote, and tightens the straps even more. Noise to grind your teeth to.

RUSALKA - Base Waters 12" (Absurd Exposition)
Epic harsh noise. I always come to think of Aube when I listen to Rusalka, even though it doesn't quite sound like him. I think it comes down to how much care and effort they put into their work, and well, how vast it always sounds.

GLASS HALF & HEAT SIGNATURE - The Dark Relief MC (self-released)
Unfairly limited tour tape. This is just 40 minutes of all out carnage, but thouroghly made carnage. Their not youths, these fellas, but it sure sounds like they're shitting rage hormones all over the place.

HEAT SIGNATURE - Dehumanization In Progress CD (Oxen)
This really was Heat Signature's year, obviously. I donät like picking two releases from the same artists for year end lists, but what can you do. Perfecting the americanoise sound and pushing it forward.

KIRAN ARORA - Formication CD (Prose Nagge)
Might be the shocker of the year. I really like what I've heard from him before, but this... Snorting dead bugs is what this album is all about.

TRERIKSRÖSET - Kristen Musik Från Rågsved LP (Harbinger)
TRERIKSRÖSET - S/t MC (self-released)
Another case of not being able to pick just one. Kristen Musik for being so elegantly violent. Side B might be the harsh noise piece of the decade. The tape for being an incredible C62 recorded live to tape (who else does that these days?)

WINCE - Shame CD (White Centipede Noise)
A perfect marriage between the pummeling of The Older Generation and the restrained textural blowtorch tickle tease of Traum.

JEPH JERMAN - Arcane Facture CD (White Centipede Noise)
Here he comes, a drunken amputee archeologist, uncarefully rummaging through fragile ancient finds at the dig site, creating quite a symphony.

WORTH - Hidden In Christ MC (Self Abuse)
Not only does he always manage to make something that feels new and unexpected, it's also fuckin spine chilling. This is his best since the fantastic Blinder.

There were many many more great noise releases this year, but I feel like favoring (and encouraging) what I feel are solid albums. Less C20's, more albums!

BEST SHOWS

I've got very little to contribute here. However original and interesting I might be as a person (and it's pretty impressive), I think I'm basically mainstream as far as good industrial/noise/experimental goes. Besides, I mainly accumulate old stuff rather than keep up. Regardless, from this year's acquisitions I'd like to endorse:

Umpio - Acquired Tastes - Lost Tapes 2008-2011 (Freak Animal)
YANA - Fat Carpet (Freak Animal)
Treriksröset - S/T (Hatband)
Treriksröset - Kristen Musik Från Rågsved (Harbinger Sound)
Jaakko Vanhala - Cuts Of Grace (Freak Animal)

A month into the new year and I may as well chime in.

Top 5 noise/PE releases in no particular order:

Striations - Keepsakes
Laureate - Eurekaphilia
Body Carve - Autoamputation
Himukalt - Sex Worker
Worth - Ruination Assessment

Top 5 sets/shows also in no particular order:

Survival Unit, Agonal Lust and etc. at Club Rectum
Pain Jerk at Hospital Fest
John Wiese + Skin Graft collab in Cleveland
Heinz Hopf at Summer Scum
Actually Summer Scum was so good that everyone who didn't get turned down by the sound guy mid-set did an excellent job.

Worst of 2019:
Losing Keith
Smell & Quim at Hospital Fest (it was the absolute worst set I have ever seen and I doubt I will ever see something that bad again).

I’ve seen quite a few people vaguely state that the Smell & Quim set was exceptionally bad. Anyone care to share what was up with it?

I’m almost positive they weren’t focused on the show. Hospital Fest was while they were still trying to find Simon....

At that point Simon wasn't missing, he had just notified Dave that he wasn't coming, while Dave was at the airport checked in already. Simon was a major part of the group and it was obvious there were elements missing. Despite this I still was highly entertained by the completely fucked up display that they ended up putting on. It was confusing and horrible, but also kind of awesome, in a way that makes sense in the context of the group. It was very different from the set they played earlier in 2019 in Berlin, but it was still uniquely Smell & Quim. Takes a lot of balls to do a vocals-only set with a backup tape of someone pissing for 45 minutes.

Maybe at some point in the future, I'll be able to look back on it and recognize how fucked and insane it really was, but it's still too early for me to say it was anything but the worst set I've ever seen.  That said, the vast majority of the acts that night were great, Richard Ramirez and Pain Jerk being the obvious two.

When I think of “bad” noise sets it’s usually when someone takes 30 minutes to set up their pedals power supplies or it’s just totally generic.... this at least sounds like somehow the best AND worst thing you could ever see....

2019 didn't have too much for me in terms of quantity, but thankfully the releases I did love showcased a lot of hard work and quality to make up for such small output. Here are a handful of strictly full length LP's that have been getting, and will continue to get heavy rotation:


Harsh Noise
RUSALKA - Base Waters

Power Electronics
SARIN SNOW - Deus Vult

Hardcore
MAGNITUDE - To Whatever Fateful End

Black metal
DEPARTURE CHANDELIER - Antichrist Rise To Power

Death Metal
TOMB MOLD - Planetary Clairvoyance

Other
ORVILLE PECK - Pony

Ive had a lot going on and spent a lot of time listening to what I have, and a lot of stuff I bought was reissues of older music, not much new stuff that I'm listening to sadly, overwhelmed with so much music and research, and recorded a ton of stuff too, so focused on that.  Biggest disappointment was endless health nonsense coupled w insane work scheduling, couldnt make any shows really.  Also, all the stuff released that I haven't obtained yet, obviously that is annoying.

So here's my top 20 released in 2019 (I know there are a TON of things released this year that rule that arent on my list, well, I have limited funds so I do what I can).

Coil - Threshold Archives 8XCD
Gerogerigegege - Blackout Archive V.1~ V.3 3XCD
Toshiya Tsunoda - Extract From Field Recording Archive 5XCD
The Rita & Mlehst - Fabric And Paint CD
The Mover - Final Sickness (Remastered 2017) 2XLP
Knud Viktor - Les Éphémères LP
Reynols - Minecxio Emanations 1993-2018 7XCD+DVD
Roland Kayn - Scanning (Kybernetische Musik IV) 10XCD
K2 - Tekhnodrug CD
Vanity Boxes (Vanity Records) 6XCD 8XCD 2XCD
Ikuro Takahashi - しりえないものとずっと  LP
Autechre - Warp Tapes 89-93 2xWAV
Stereolab - big label album reissue 2XCDs
Steven Stapleton and David Tibet - The Threat Of Memory 5XCD
Masonna - Bursting Absolute Moods LP
Ora - Time Out Of Mind LP
Mo·Te* - Taste Die Mad CD
Dendö Marionette - Juvenile Rock CS
