SEWER ELECTION - Blizzard Amplification 2CD
Sewer Election is a name to be held in the highest regard. While initially hooking audiences on one of the most hard-hitting takes on harsh noise available, he also proved to be the master of an unsettling and emotive tape music style which has come to be widely imitated. Naturally, the moments when these two concepts converge are considered to be nothing short of utter perfection. “Blizzard Amplification” is no different in quality from past releases, but focuses on a third speed at which Johansson can dominantly take the wheel.

The tracks which encompass these two discs are some of the most chaotic sounds you could imagine being wrangled, an unrelenting blast of energy which can only properly be compared to the most revered recordings of the 90s. Although sourced from improvisations, Sewer Election’s signature control and consideration are present throughout every moment. High-pitched oscillating tones and feedback ride along the crust of a more familiar static and rumble, all while coming across as fully intentional. The compositional strength of these recordings is unexpected given their categorically raw nature; you’d think amongst hours of material there would be unwanted sounds or lacking moments, but there just aren’t. Instead, you find a slab of harsh noise crafted by someone who has lived deep within the appreciation and practice of such for decades. This is essential listening for any fan of Dan’s work, a clear example of getting the goddamn job done.
- Matt Boettke

KJOSTAD - Red Iron Knife CD
Regressing from the sophisticated and eclectic compositions of his recent masterworks, Kjostad delivers two titanic slabs of magnetite crust via the rusty mine cart that is Red Iron Knife. Hammering, churning, cutting into the torso of the mountain - this album is a relentless deep drill into the blackest and densest strata of harsh noise. For fans of DEAD BODY LOVE - Dedicated to the Iron Range.

SAVAGE GOSPEL CD
New harsh noise duo comprised of Ilkka Vekka of the great pysch-noise unit HAARE, and early Finnish noise pioneer Janne Laurila. No politics, no religion, just pure sweet harsh noise like only two middle aged dads can do!

TAKLAMAKAN VS. UMPIO - Interaxion Venenosa CD (co-released with Narcolepsia)
What we have here is a reissue of this LP from 2014, originally in an edition of 100 on italian label A Dear Girl Called Wendy. No remaster, no bonus, just classy junk noise archaeology.

Back in 2013, Taklamakan (Croatia) received unused recording session leftovers from Umpio (Finland), and viceversa, in the best tradition of the old days of mail collaboration. "Do something with this!" The final result comes in the form of two pieces in which each artist recycles those materials, combining strange with new, arriving at the crystal clear focus point of massive avalanches of relentless scrap metal electronix compositions.

"Here at Arkisto / Umpio HQ, with the help of close allies White Centipede Noise and Narcolepsia, we wish to celebrate and salute the now defunct A Dear Girl Called Wendy, forever in gratitude for believing in this project, and for being an absolutely kick-ass harsh noise label." -P. Dassum

These are moving fast - about 25 of Sewer Election left and much fewer of Kjostad.

More copies will be available from Skeleton Dust in the next day or two.

Copies also on the way to the following USA distros: Chondritic Sound, Cloister, Found Remains, Dead Gods, Disclosures, Prime Ruin...

Other international distros: 4iB (Singapore), Old Captain (Ukraine), Art-Into-Life (Japan), probably a couple more I'm forgetting...

I am now able to ship to the USA as well thanks to collaboration with Skeleton Dust, so direct orders can be placed through the site.

The cassette version of the Sewer Election sold out before I could buy one so I was happy to get this CD reissue.
Having only listened to disc 1 so far - many times - I am absolutely loving this.
