HORAFLORA / SECRET BOYFRIEND split 12"
Raub / Horaflora and I met by playing a show together at Eagle Wing
Farm outside of Chapel Hill in September 2008. I went to his set cold
and it hit all sweet spots, left me surprised and refreshed. Raub had
toured down from New England with his entire set-up on a bicycle.
Using a clever and economical system that included a hand drum,
trumpet mouth piece, balloon, computer sub-woofer, transducers,
hand-held tape recorders
and various found objects, he created an immersive shuddering meadow
mecha-organic sound environment. Empty cans and scrap metal rattled to
the same pulse, balloons exhaled lost-in-the-fog tones on the taut
drum skin, tapes whirred weird in their lascivious carriage in the
front and back : the sum being a barnyard of coldly throbbing sounds
from all angles harmonizing with the resident at-farm frogs and
insects. Secret Boyfriend played a brief and mucky non-karoake set of
mistakes, chopped keyboard, static, casual vocals and skulled
microphone. Two years later I am pleased to announce the vinyl debut
of both Horaflora and Secret Boyfriend! On his side, Raub wrings
pleasingly alien sounds from his systems - taken in this instance from
a live session with Andrea Williams on KALX. The electro-acoustic
room-rattling is crisply recorded but still very inscrutable ...
strange sounds mingling spatially guided by unseen hands of a deft
poltergiest . . .
The Secret Boyfriend side begins bleeding in the still room where
Horaflora left us, oozes and flirts with a baroque chamber mentality
giving away to exquisite / blown speaker melodies and drooling
song-form, morbid and tender. A sense of calm and peripheral
melancholy is held, abrasion dialed back. One quarter alive in a cold
apartment for twenty years. Leaves are falling, windows are open.
JEFF REHNLUND - SMOKE FROM THE MIRROR 12"
Mostly recorded during a year in Las Cruces, New Mexico with a reverb
unit and other gear found in a spider- and cat-infested geodesic dome
in the desert. "Smoke" is a mottled sound diary of sweltering mutant
pop, distressed voices, sweaty-dense-and-deep drone in a wider, darker
sky, wretching cassettes, sparse stone garden melody, gamelan, plus a
lengthy field recording of an exorcism in India that was interrupted
by a wandering bull. All tracks evoke an overwhelming sense of HEAT
and empty SPACE, LIFE and DEATH, distance, isolation - carved with
broader, more direct gestures than Jeff's previous releases, but still
with flourishes of his trademark bewilderment /
M.B. - Plays the Clockwork Orange 12"
Reissue of a February 1980 decomposition from the Italian industrial
forereunner. Halting tape cut-ups of the classical score from the
film. One of the strangest M.B. recordings I've heard! Perfect date
night music for the underground lair ...
Coming November and December:
VVAQRT - Than on eother and you have 0 answers LP
