Purge

(Ideal - 105) CD $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Reissue of instantly sold-out cassette (Ideal 2007) that guarantees exhaustion. Powerful and dynamic noise built with travelling frequencies, rich with details, very little hope.

BJ NILSEN / Z'EV

22' 22"

(Ideal) Used CD $9.00

Emperors of drone pair up for three twenty-two minute, twenty-two second sound works (one of which isn’t listed). Their foggy mass of dread recalls later The Hafler Trio and Deathprod’s nebulous black mass audio.

NO MORE MUSIC AT THE SERVICE OF CAPITAL

Universal Prostitution

(Ideal - iDEAL041) Used CD $5.00

Four shrill and repellent tracks in thirty-seven minutes from 2006 by Mattin the Basque maniac who produces hideous noise from computer feedback and yells at the top of his lungs, Argentinian saxophonist Lucio Capece on mixing desk and feedback. The duo’s sloganeering and screeching about the alienation of consumer society persuades, through sound, that all is not well with the world.

ORNAMENT

Protest Music

(Ideal - IDEAL127) LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Growing’s Joe DeNardo tests audiences’ decibel tolerances with sounds ranging from guitar-based rawness to deeply effected, screwed-up percussion. The complex sounds and images here contend with the absolute grayness of existence. Edition of 400

(Ideal - iDEAL138) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

COMING SOON. Italian bad vibes mastermind and one half of industrial filth duo Lettera 22 Riccardo Mazza has a free approach to music, with no interest whatsoever in source devices. The intent of Unfit’s dark, meditative harshness is to submerge in a gloomy, ancestral mood. RM’s ambient, pulsating electronic music nods to both minimal techno and industrial music. Edition of 300
