Current Worming "1" CS (Dogmatics In Outline)
     I might be easy to please when it comes to rotting loop noise, but this shit is just too good! Fans of Hander Som Vardar, HOH, and Dead Body Love could all appreciate this. Decayed, heavy, and dismal loops which modulate only slightly per movement, before shifting gears. I want to add that the B-side piece has some pretty weird channel placement/panning choices via headphones especially...

Organum vol.1 and 2 CD's. I've been playing these on a regular basis over the years. Some of my favorite material but lack of information and minimalistic artwork is annoying
David Jackman pretty much is a quasi minimalist; do more with less.  Few artists reach his level of density in their work.  Unsuspecting richness, but that is sort of the beautiful consequence, if not outright goal, of great minimalists.  Desola and Sorow are up there.

COUNTRY CLUB "Brothers" 12" (Breathing Problem Prod.)- good 12" of PE similar to what the Germans are well known for. $8 from the label so worth checking out. Would like to hear the debut now...

RAMLEH "31/5/1962-1982" (Broken Flag)- this makes me wish like hell I had bought the huge cd set a few years ago... "We will win!"

Can't wait for new material from this project. Love it so much.

Sektion B - When Democracy is no Longer Enough

I am 20 minutes into this and can't restrain my love. This is just absolute perfection. Capturing the current climate (espc in Germany) and packing it into the classic Sektion B style executed better than ever before. Heavy and catchy but still wild at times. Dominant flangered vocals. Anyone who is even remotely into this kind of material should definitely grab this, not only because the guys deserve the support for the years of dedicated work but also because of the sheer quality. I have been waiting for something to do exactly this for so long.

Absolutely agreed! Like it even more with every listen.

 Blue Sabbath Black Cheer & irr. app. (ext.) & The New Blockaders ‎– "DDTTNBX" cd (Phage Tapes)- this has been sitting in a pile for awhile so I finally get around to listening. First track is heavy noise with BSBC/TNB. The rest of the cd is everyone in the hands of irr.app so not as heavy or noisy and more sound collage-y. Kinda creepy; sounds of gurgling water, metals, gravel/glass, field recordings. Very diverse range of sounds. The fourth track is the highlight featuring BSBC's  concrete mixer used in the TNB collab but it's not so heavily processed that it's unrecognizable. The final track is very low volume and completely useless. Nice photography for the artwork.

Checking up on some older cd's sitting unused on the shelves for to long.

Half Makeshift - Omen the first one, beautiful weird cut & paste collage artwork, but it doesn't translate at all to the music. Drone and post-rock like a lot of bands used to make (Locrian etc.), sounds are nice, but that's just it. Every second is predictable and very safe, no tension, no energy, no excitement, lame shit. Stay away from this.

Half Makeshift - L'anse Amort. I think I ordered the Half Makeshift cd's because of this one. The drone-t parts sound much thicker, but it's still bland. The melody in the first track sounds like this guy wants to sound black metal but took Lonesummer as reference, fucking horrible.

The Cherry Piont - Misery Guts. Black Wichery and esp. Night Of The Bloody Tapes are like sex to my ears. This, is, not. Sounds to much like Phil is trying to find his sound, which is killing any ferocity and it doesn't sound like a fuck in your face as it should.

Thee Plague of Gentleman -  Primula Pestis. Starts out as very convincing doom metal, heavy riffs, fat groove and good screaming. At the third track they go into total stoner territory and my interest drops to 0. Didn't bother with the rest.

Always found this one to be a true punishing assault. Been about 5 years since last listen, though. I'll revisit.

Listening to some new records:

Joe Jones - In Performance LP, great looking reissue of classic fluxus LP. 2 long throbbing, droning pieces with enough going on (percussion, bells) to keep things interesting.
- Mlehst - The Difficulty In Crossing A Field 2LP, never heard the originally CDr but this sounds flat and can't really hold my interest. Not bad but i've head better Mlehst material, can't see why this was picked by Fernow to be reissued on vinyl. Gatefold sleeve is blown up version of CD-cover.
- Aaron Dilloway - The Gag File LP, loops, samples, great atmosphere.. better than Modern Jester to my ears
- Jaap Vink s/t LP, first Recollection GRM LP with an artist that wasn't associated with GRM. This is a very nice pick of influential but unknown Dutch artist. Minimal droning pieces recorded between 1968 and 85 that will be appreciated by fans of later Daniel Menche, Kevin Drumm..
- Henning Christiansen - Opus 67 STRATEGYGETARTS LP, always good to add some now Christiansen to the collection but this is weak. Mediocre track on side A that's played in reverse on side B.
- Wolf Vostell - Dé-coll/age Musik LP, nice reissue of classic, but impossible to find, first LP from 1982. Creepy, lo-fi sounds structured into 13 short pieces. Never heard the original LP so sound wise this was a pleasant surprise for me.
- Eric Lunde - N3845 W10452.5/7.5 2x7" box, have the reissue on Industrial Recollection but found a cheap copy so couldn't resist. Nice box with lots of inserts and some crude sound material. Concept remains vague to me despite all the visual information given.

that lp is getting a lot of hype but it's all deserved. it's tip top.

Eric Lunde - N3845 W10452.5/7.5 2x7" box

I still own the orig. & have the IR set, too. I drove around Garden of the Gods with Jeph Jerman & he showed me the site where it was performed- a spot off the side of the road.

Last night was:

SUBLIMINAL "Gracebudd" LP & HAUS ARAFNA "Butterfly" LP (both on Galakthorrö)- haven't listened to either of these projects or anything on GH in a lot of years. I lost interest after "Butterfly", which, is a very good record esp. the harsher songs. "Gracebudd" sounds like all recycled/unused HA sounds but it's still an interesting release especially the way the vocals-samples are used. The 2nd side is the best. I think I will have to dig out the three HA cd's for re-listening next.

SHIFT - Abandon LP

Fucking hell, been quite obsessed with this one over the last couple days. Slow and punishing. I like it a lot. For me, already one of the best records 2017.

Tense and intense album with a lot of variety and the tracks build up brilliantly, especially the last track which even implements guitars and drums. Heavy processed vocals in perfect Shift fashion. Spine-chillingly good!

Extra credit for very creative art design. The record nerd in me loves the fact that both sides end in a locked groove plus the spot-varnished cover with Shift logo is lovely.

Wolf Eyes "Dead Hills" CD (Troubleman Unlimited)
      A friend recently gave me a burned copy of this, and I felt like I had to revisit it, being that it was one of my girlfriend at the time's favorite albums when I was 16. Wolf Eyes basically represent everything I dislike about this kind of music, and why I resent it's proliferation in "cool person"/hipster culture, but on the other hand, the core lineup of Dilloway/Olson/Young/Connelly has it's merits, musically anyway. Like a rock band, they manage to have a specific, organized, and unique style where each member's contributions are obvious and identifiable. Dilloway obviously doing the tape work and more abstract noises, Young responsible for the quieter parts, effects ("signature" reverb sound), etc., and Olson doing some of the more organized electronics and as far as I know, voice work. Well, honestly, all these elements in combination do a lot less for me than especially Dilloway and Young's solo efforts - my reaction is "why combine these with no point other than to do so?" They sound just fine on their own, without the need to make an entertaining piece together. Of course, that's my other gripe with Wolf Eyes - "entertaining" music that seems pointless other than to be "fun." Hell, I'd say that there doesn't appear to be any theme or concept for any of their work at all, which is just not appealing to me. I don't really understand when people find anything dark, threatening, or challenging in their sound; to me, it's distinctly just a few guys trying to be weird/funny. I like the idea of band-format experimental music with a recognizable sound, but you need a concept, too; not just the desire to have fun and do something. The party/headbanging vibe is something I can do without, too. Except for the vocals which annoy the hell out of me, this is their better work - restrained compositions, nice effects, nice "beat" sections, hell, even a sense of atmosphere, especially on the first track. Too bad there's not much else.
