New releases 11-19-07

As usual, all of these are available as cd-r's from me. Just get in touch. Trades are preferred, but you can purchase them for $4/ea.

Download: Haves&Thirds - Now I Know Why Tigers Eat Their Young

This international genius returns with his third full length, showing more focus now than ever before. Haves&Thirds is one of my favorite artists (recorded and live), and it is more than a pleasure to release something for the mysterious hooded man. You'll love this, there's no doubt about it. Plus, there's an OALS cover. Am I serious? Hell yes.

Check out previous releases on Cephia's Treat, Kinky Noise, and Obelisk.

Download: Zachary Granger Moldof - A Contest is Eminent

A Contest is Eminent documents a performance organized by Zach Moldof. There's no doubt that this man knows exactly what he's doing. Controlling the uncontrollable, listening to the unlistenable (or maybe unlistening to the listenable). Just when you ask yourself, "When does this start?" you've wasted valuable minutes, and might want to kick it back to the beginning. Nerds will certainly hear some John Cage and David Tudor in here. I think it sounds a little bit like Pengo at some points. But honestly, it stands on its own with out reference points. Just check it out and blast off into outer space.

This is the type of recording you'll want to discover and rediscover time and time again. Please believe.

Download: What's YR Damage? - No Thanks
This has been available since the most recent International Noise Conference, but what good does availability do without the knowledge of it? This is an attempt to get this recording to see the light of day.

This is the one and only full length recording by What's YR Damage?. It was recorded right before INC 2006 by Mr.1/2s&1/3s himself on analog 4 track, completely live in the Trung Party Palace. A much more physically free and sonically restrained Damage than ever before, No Thanks. documents one of the most important periods of that band, showcasing the young men doing exactly what they wanted to at that specific point in time.

Those that saw the band on their last tour know what they're in for. Those that didn't should find out.

Check the "Added: days ago" and "number of views." Someone's looking out for me.

In other news, I'll be getting the internet and cable television at my house today. I'm hoping my productivity with go through the roof while I edit sounds/layouts/etc. for cd-r's and digital versions for the blog while consuming as much contemporary rubbish as my brain can handle.

So, expect Zachary Granger Moldof and Haves&Thirds cd-r's up here this weekend for real, as well as a bunch of promised WYD? junk. Adam is sending me a box of odds 'n ends cassettes we used, so those will make their way up here at some point. I think we're going to do a cd-r collection of these cassettes for International Noise Conference titled "Rough Times." Chances are, the digital version will be posted here before the year's end.

Got the Soft Creatures songs for the LLLR split. Holy crap, it's really good stuff. I'll probably post a couple of tracks this weekend. The split will feature top notch packaging courtesy of Jotch2812.

If you're in Gainesville there are some total shredders playing on Saturday, you MUST attend this show:


In person:
Gaybomb -- the return of the magnetic strip abuser, from Charleston, SC
Otolathe -- cricketronics, from Tampa
Pairs -- one man pushes drums through electronics and vice versa, from Tampa
Often -- record collage, new to Jacksonville
Hal McGee -- longtime jack of all noise trades
Ironing -- microcassettes, tapes, radio, and records, ridden like a bull
M.A.S.S. & Adikt -- new pair mixing turnatablism with sax, beats and real time sampling and electronic manipulation

Not In person:
Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn -- West Palm Beach

Saturday, November 17 at 9PM
@ Tim & Terry's <------note different location from past shows!
1417 NW 1st Ave
Gainesville, FL

LLLR will be playing via telephone thanks to electronic wizardry of Mr. Ironing.

There's a Florida weekend tour planned for Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn at the end of December. Orlando/Tampa/Sarasota/maybe Miami? Sure is a good reason to get out of south Florida, and hopefully spread some music around.

New Whats YR Damage?, etc.

Download: What's YR Damage? - Cactus Up Yr Asstus

Cactus Up Yr Asstus is an accidental tape collage made by the members of What's YR Damage? sometime between 2003 and 2004. We used tape manipulation live, and I can only guess that this was a source tape for that. The first two and a half minutes are a WYD? song that never developed out of the practice space. There's lots of random sounds, talking, radio sounds, testing of instruments and pedals and other bands. Sometimes we liked to record bands that played right before us and then play them while we were setting up. I can deduce that there are recordings of The Franchise, Deadbird, and maybe New Flesh or possibly Animal Husbandry here. There are some parts of this tape that defintiely stump me. But over all, its an interesting listen.

Soon I'll be uploading the WYD? Back to Being Banned at the Backbooth cassette, the WYD? Afraid of the Magic Wand cassette, and the full length titled No Thanks.

The Zachary Granger Moldof CD-r will be posted here early next week. It's really good.

And lastly, here is a video of Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn live at Churchill's in Miami, FL on November 6th. Btw, LLLR is now a two piece. New shit coming up.
