THIRTEEN HURTS is the chosen project name of one rather elusive character who calls himself One-Eyed Zatoichi.  Active for many years, and having released the well-received "UVB-76" on NO PART OF IT label before, we were given the go-ahead to release two prior full-lengths under the THIRTEEN HURTS moniker.  Enthralling, almost soundtracky, heavy electronics with no noise swashes or synthesizers to speak of, listeners will no doubt enjoy the very unique and compelling work here, which was released in digipak CD format with almost no promotion.

Thirteen Hurts is the moniker of an elusive artist going by “One-Eyed Zatoichi” (haha! Good one), and Threshold is a collection of intense material that’s been kicking around the No Part of It hard drives for a few years. (That copyright date of 2011 on the back of the CD is a dead giveaway.) But the scorching noise of dense electronics is evergreen, so we here in 2020 can still enjoy the Thirteen Hurts of the past. Here we find Zatoichi all over the map, with distortions rumbling like a swarm of bulldozers and tones piercing like a swarm of hypodermic needles. It’s mostly swarms you’re getting here, and the electronics manipulated and bent and amplified and effected interact with and build off each other in violently intriguing ways. I’m gonna be honest and note that I did a few double takes while listening to this thing, perhaps most notably to the seventeen-minute “Percolate,” which percolate it does! It’s like electrified death coffee by the end of it. Oh, no synthesizers. Don’t even say the word “synthesizer” around this release.
