Placenta Lyposuction - Misanthropology Studies Vol. I [Perpetual Abjection - 2019]

Misanthropology Studies Vol. I is an excise in seared, crude and industrial edged walled noise. This CDR release is from Croatian project Placenta Lyposuction, and it severs up a hours worth of walled noise matter- all presented in a lo-fi bit of arty packing made from a DVD case, acrylic paint soaked paper and cotton wall, and metal cut disc- which nods towards the industrial-tinged rough-ness of the wall with-in. This release came in an edition of twenty five copies, and as of this review, the label still has some left.

Placenta Lyposuction has been active on & off for the last ten years or so- releasing coming on for around twenty-five releases in all- so they are certainly not the most prolific of walled noise ventures. The last time I heard something from the project was the two C90 tape boxset Stages of Death from this year, that saw the project going for a very much more old-school wall noise sound. The release to hand is a bit more set, seared, and muffled compared to much of the material on Stages Of Death- it’s passable I guess, but certainly not the best quality of the material I’ve heard under the Placenta Lyposuction banner.
 
The releases/ tracks full name is  "Misanthropology Studies Vol. I / Document 24/06/2018". The wall is built around a rapid & crude mixture of buffeting ‘n’ bucking low end, cluttering & rushing mid- with some clashing and snapping sub-tones. Together these create a ‘wall’ that is very rough & nasty, and it certainly feels very industrial touched- the issue is that the textures used are more than a little plain & unimaginative- sure if you want a no thrills head grinding, that is akin to been fed through some aged & battered machinery- this will do the trick. The problem is fairly soon it just becomes dull and bland, which of course made my attention very much drift- so much so that that by around the midway mark, my interest in the whole wall was waning & dyeing.
 
 
Genres like drone, ambient & the wider noise genres- which of course includes wall noise- are often fairly subjective in whether or not if they click, and I’m afraid to say Misanthropology Studies Vol I did little or nothing for me- but you may get more from the release than I did-so I’d suggest popping over to labels Bandcamp To hear/pick up a copy head here.
