ANTICHILDLEAGUE "Infect Your Gut Infect Your Thoughts " tape
Bacteria Field
Fuck! Knowning ACL since early days of the project, how often you can conclude that almost 20 years of recordings and suddenly band produces their greatest works? Is it the move to smaller edition tape format, that made artists to add extra noisiness and extra brutality to sound? It is ripping and fierce. Good vocals, good sounds. Still it has industrial feel to it, due having actual tracks. 8 of them, totalling c. 50 minutes. If you ask me, 100 copies edition of this on tape is good - yet this would deserve to be CD album as well. It is unlikely Euro industrial audience is going to hear it otherwise?


For me, this is one of the stand out album releases of last year - much in gratitude to the harrowing and violent vocal performances of ACL and genuine atmosphere of the record. Sold out quite quick to my knowledge, regardless of this I would say the record deserves a wider cirulation for the quality of the material alone. If not compact disc or vinyl, then digital at least. The latter might be a fact as I type, I don't know. Hellish effort, reader,grab a copy if you have a chance to track one dwn.

I loved this release, I think it was up there as far as her material goes. I liked the Rita split too. I have all the material and don't think she's done a bad release. I'd like to see an album on Vinyl.

LINEKRAFT - Engineering Analysis of Inner Death LP
I'll need to revisit this soon because I felt like the A-side just kept getting better and better and I was prepared to make an addendum to my year-end list, but then the B-side left a bit to be desired. For some reason the abrasiveness seems to take a few steps back when the record is flipped.

PRURIENT - The History of Aids LP
Still one of the best things ever. Recently came back to it after a number of years and it always hangs around the playlist for a few days.

Subjective of course but my favourite Prurient album remains Black Vase. It's his nastiest most primal during a stretch of harsh albums that kept coming over the course of that time period.

It's always hard to pick a favourite from this artist when there are so many releases but I agree Black Vase really stands out, an absolute pleasure to listen to.

Yesterday, 3 tapes from Sweden :

Factory Farming - NKVD (Akka Tapes) : "To loving memory of the man of steel" . Dont know the man so cant tell if this is just a thematic release or communist PE. Musically, excluding the intro which is a russian song about Stalin -that's the only word i understand- , is PE as basic as it can be, and the same from start to finish. That wouldnt be a problem per se but there is a sense of lazyness and lack of effort in the material. The best parts of it would be fine as 4 minutes in a full length but for nearly 30 minutes ? No ! - If you want a tape from the project for sure go for the one on Team Boro Tapes which is by far better and good !

Sewer Election - Dismal (Team Boro Tapes) : I expected good noise, and it's delivered no doubt ! I havent Wreck very recent in memory but this isnt far away. Bassy, lo-fi and dirty, meaning sounds like machines start and die failing, not ripping or fully blasts on the mid-upper edge but with use of precise ringing freq in that spectrum which struggle to stay alive too. B Side, i think pace is a little slower, and more elements of his more experimental "tape music" work start becoming apparent in the mix.

Kommando RJF - Sweet Slow Suicide (Chefsideologens Bolag / Styggelse) : From Sweden's finest. Class !

It's funny, I have opposite feelings. I think the b-side is the darker and nastier of the two. especially the last track with the female screaming/whimpering samples. but the record has stayed in rotation since I got it in December and it just seems to get better the more i listen to it.

K2 - The Rust 2xLP - Hospital - my friend got this for me as a gift, and a hell of a gift it is. I've never heard the junk abuse era of K2, only the post 2010 stuff (which I really enjoy) but it took all of 10 seconds to understand why people praise that period and this album. I was kind of amazed by how quick the hour went by. really dynamic stuff that's constantly changing at just the right speed. a full frequency range too, not just ear-bleeding highs or bone-crunching lows. once I spend more time with this I'll think i'll have to go digging for some of K2s older releases that are closer to this.

Two recommendations from the best of 2018 thread.  Always interested in minimalism.

Jakob Ullmann - Müntzers Stern / Solo II 2018 - minimalism in the Trente Oiseaux, Bernhard Günter vein of very little audible is happening; not quite as non-existent as that, but in that realm - much preferred CD2, "Solo II" over CD1 - this really isn't my bag, but I'm glad I heard it.

Eva-Maria Houben - Breath For Organ 2018 - I'm not sure how to feel about this one.  It goes from sounding like a vacuum cleaner at 50 paces to someone breathing down a PVC pipe to possibly the sound of air moving down an organ tube (as the name suggests...or because I'm a sucker for suggestion, which is the point of the whole thing) to a train whistle miles away.  The confusion is fine, but none of it is especially interesting or provoking.  Not awful by any means, but eh.

then...

Anenzephalia - Magenta 2018 - four, long, subdued tracks that were perfect for a Sunday morning when you might prefer just a bit more edge and darkness than ambient might supply - I really enjoyed this, but I can see why a traditional fan might feel it underwhelming.

Retroactive Jealousy – Long Soft Next for Temporary Exclusivity. Tape. Putrescent Tapes - Nasty walls and samples dealing with the death of Alyssa Funke. Very poignant and intense. This was part of a bunch of releases I got from the said label, this one was the highlight.

Rotting Shrine – Do You Believe in God? – Cheap Food Records – Cassette. Got this one for my blog, it's themed on the Columbine Murderers, particularly Dylan Bennet Klebold. Really sharp raw noise and sampled dialogue of a woman talking about her relationship with religion and joining a convent. This along with the Active Denial tape is my face recording from the label.

Currently working my way through Third Noise Principle: Formative North American Electronica 1975-1984

60 tracks across 4 CDs, full of previously unreleased tracks, demos, out-of-print and hard to find gems.  All sourced from North America / Canada.
A few noise / industrial tracks included, and some great early synth / electronics included.

Its out on Cherry Red, I also recommend the first two volumes in the series that cover UK and Europe.

I was going to start a thread about it, it probably deserves it.
They don't seem to advertise very much but I figured a number of people here would be interested.
