Two longtime and long distance comrades on one piece of wax. Random marble-colored vinyl with full color pro printed covers. $5 ppd.
Russian Tsarlag is Providence musician/filmmaker/artist/Kinky Noise Records CEO Carlos Gonzalez. Tsarlag contributes what could be considered the soundtrack to a late-night teenage creep cult pep rally; his most plugged in and power chorded ripper yet. It's the perfect progression from his "Community Death Tube" LP (Night People) and split 12" with Blue Shift (Rare Youth). Kind of reminds me of early Chrome without the tacky electronics.
Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn is the ongoing project of What's YR Damage?'s Nelson Hallonquist. His side slows things down, way down, with a warped out analog burner. Thick synths, oscillations, finger piano, and the contents of a warbled tape found in a public garbage are utilized, in which two men contemplate a body transcending experience via the metaphysics of sports. Weird shit.

Also available is a new Lesson Lesson Lessen Relearn CD-r. Dense, blown-out electronics with few melodies. It can be downloaded below, or purchased (full color packaging, uncompressed music). All three LLLR cd-r's (Potentials, The Smiling at Technology EP and Things Have Never Been Better) are available for $5 ppd or $8 ppd with the RT split 7"
