Jana Irmert - Flood
Hailing from Berlin, sound and media artist Jana Irmert returns to Fabrique Records with her follow-up to 2016's End of Absence, Flood. This texturally impressive sophomore effort is inspired by Chyngyz Aitmatov's novel The Mark of Cassandra. Presented in three distinct parts, Flood is a flowing, moving work based on drones, oscillations, and deeply altered field recordings.
The Horror Of Beach Party - The Horror Of Beach Party(Blu Ray/DVD)
Coming at the end of the summer, perfect to partial those post-sunshine blues here’s a decidedly wacky and at times frankly schizophrenic summer creature feature from the mid 60’s. The Horror Of Beach Party blends together corny rock ’n’ roll soundtracked beach drama, amusing aquatic monster action, with moments of fairly extreme gore and nightmare fuel imagery. On either Blu Ray or DVD from Severin Films here is the first ever uncut release of the film.
Joli - There Will Always Be A Reason
There Will Always Be A Reason is a CDR box set that severs up four unwieldy brutal, terminal bleak & hope- crushingly stark examples of the walled noise form. Each CDR presents the listener with a single slab of HNW, and each is as unrelenting & crudely unbreakable as the next- all making this a release more for the seasoned wall-head looking for a true sonic brutalizing.
Archgoat - The Lucifer Crown
Finnish Black/Death Metal legends Archgoat were originally formed in 1989 by guitarist Ritual Butcherer and bassist/vocalist Lord Angelslayer. The band were initially active until 1993 when they disbanded after a disagreement with their record company over the terms of their contract. Fortunately the band returned to action in 2004, and have been pretty prolific ever since releasing four full length albums and numerous EPs and splits. The Lucifer Crown is the band’s fourth full length and the first to feature Diabolus Sylvarum on keyboards, and Goat Aggressor on drums.
Strafe F.R - The Bird Was Stolen
Veteran sound creators Strafe F.R ("Strafe Für Rebellion") have existed since 1979, with a sporadic release pattern. Their music exists on the boundary between industrial and musique concrete/avant-garde. The Bird Was Stolen is their first album since Sulphur Spring in 2014.  This is my first exposure to the group's music.
House Mother - Chant
The latest album from Clive Henry's 'House Mother' alias, "Chant", comes as a 4-CD set housed in a glassy blue plastic case - as far as casings go it's not one I've ever come across before and so feels very unique and identifiably self-released, with no allusion to label affiliation anywhere on the exterior. There is artwork pasted on to both the back and front of the case, black and white symmetrical full body shots of a man in staunch poses, no text at all - the impression I get is as though these are images taken from a fashion photography shoot, something immediately bizarre to see paired up with a noise release but also comes with its own flood of connotations and reference points. I'm reminded of Opaque's HNW fashion obsession and various other "unorthodox" topics that a very particular circle of the HNW realm has taken on in the past. Clive is no stranger to taking on such unusual thematics and from all of the outward signs, it appears as though this project is no exception.
