Jurko Haltuu / Miljoner Döda – Split

Jurko miljoner

Wow, Funeral Fog has some great stuff in their line-up, ey. Anatomiteatern, Nils Dacke, Jurko Haltuu, Miljoner Döda. It’s really shaping up to be one of the richest veins in Swedish noise/experimental music! So, for the third time a release from Funeral Fog, this time a split between the operator of the label and a lot of dead people!

Vivenza – Réalités Servo Mécaniques


” This evolution of music is parallel to the multiplication of machines, which everywhere are collaborating with man. Not only amid the clamor of the metropolis, but also in the countryside, which until yesterday was normally silent, in our time the machine has created such a variety and such combinations of noises that pure sound, in its slightness and monotony, no longer arouses any feeling.”

– The Art of Noises, Luigi Russolo

Everyday Loneliness – An Error in Judgement

An Error in Judgement

You know what, to be a bit frank and perhaps a bit too personal with you, I’ve been in a pretty terrible mood this past week. Perhaps it was a smaller anxiety attack from the realization that I still don’t know where I’m going in life, and that I have a pretty big problem with dealing with stuff and getting shit done. And because of this, I end up alone in my small apartement, procrastinating everything to the last second and feeling like crap the whole time; just sitting and clicking from page to page on Reddit, and escaping my thoughts by leaving Spotify running endlessly. Maybe I have some real issues I need to deal with or maybe I’ve just been listening to too much introspective, downer, sad drones, like the latest cassette I’ve bought, Everyday Loneliness – An Error in Judgement

Skeldos – Ispaudai


Well, here’s something interesting, I got a submission from a relatively new Lithuanian project to spotlight their new release on the Lithuanian noise label Terror. I’ve been quite interested in that label for a while and been meaning to pick up some of their stock and zines. They have quite a large selection of various European noise-cassettes that seem interesting. One of their latest releases are from Skeldos, the aforementioned project.

JUTE GYTE/VENOWL – Split cassette


Alright, guess it is time to try and get a hold of the immensely weird, esoteric, avant-garde, mess that is Jute Gyte. Dissonant melodies, disharmonious rhythms and an overall discordant sound is probably the easiest and most straightforward way of trying to explain that which can not be described. Yet underneath all this hobbled mess of frequencies there is still a fun and playful sound that is truly unique for Jute Gyte. I have heard my fair share of various avant-garde, experimental, esoteric, and overall weird metal, but never have I come across something this dense and varied as the works of Jute Gyte; with a quite large and prolific discography that jumps from slow, discordant guitar lamentations, to weird experimental black metal, to just straight up harsh noise, you can never be sure what you’re going to get with him, except for something bizarre and unique.

S.F.A.A. – Selkirk Sessions (Extended Tape Mix)


Halloween Quest Records, that fine provider of fine DIY-grade, handcrafted cassettes with love. I’m beginning to like this label more and more. First Ak’chamel’s lovely weirdness, now S.F.A.A.’s dark and moody guitar drones! DIY is the new black, and slow, lumbering, dismal guitar drones is the new comfort food for dark nights.

VOMIR vinyl in the works on HQR, woot!!

He of No Name – I Collect You


All right! Time for a look at one of the more interesting labels to come out of Northern Idaho, Sol y Nieve! A label that I have mentioned before, with the release of Yellow Eyes’ first cassette and Monvment and Ten Thousand Miles of ArteriesSol y Nieve truly has some great releases under its belt, and it seems like there will be no stopping of great releases to come!

This week I’ll be taking a look at a small sample of the fine works available through Sol y Nieve and the latest cassettes, released on 1/27/14. And first of the bat is the very elusive and very aptly named He of No Name!
