Dead Souls

(Chocolate Monk - choc.226) CDR $9.00

Violin feedback bloom from Mike Collino, whose spirit of scrape triturates tiny minds. Suitably ajar tape swashbuckle with dollops of bent spooned electronic glup and soured bass harmonic preserve whispers “let’s get mysterious.” Doglady truly represents the crude with lots of style, like a spleen tarantula running roughways, educating the peasants. Let the muscle be heard.


Future For The Body

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.361) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Further nocturnal transmissions from Mike Collino, who eases the burbling in your sick head with a collection of short pieces that utilize electronics, indefinable strings, piano, violin, electrical hum, modified tape / voice, music boxes and who knows what else. Eerie and beautiful as ever. “These are closed systems,” says Collino. “Inexplicable failures and therefore shareable. I’m able to make it and keep it because I don't understand it.” Numbered edition of 60



(RRRecords - RRRDOG) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Michigan violinist Mike Collino uses loops, delays and effects to get kinda dark, creepy, industrial/experimental textures and atmospherics. Says Aaron Dilloway, “Excellent violin strangeness complete with multiple reel-to-reel tape delay warbled by bass drum kick pedal.... Killer style!” This LP collects various tracks from his cassettes. Each copy is housed in a hard vinyl laserdisc folder. The outside has a printed cover and the inside has one of RRR’s usual handmade covers.
