Prurient - Bermuda Drain (Hydra Head)

Prurient - Bermuda Drain (Hydra Head) Comentários: This eagerly awaited new LP from Prurient begins with a blood-curdling scream - but thereafter all expectations are defied. If like us you've always been fascinated by the more reflective, electronic side of Dominick Fernow's catalogue - thus far restricted to the odd album track, his work with Cold Cave and a couple of choice side projects - then all your Christmases have come at once. Reportedly inspired by long drives around mainland Europe listening to minimal techno, Bermuda Drain pulsates with sequenced electronic menace from the off, and is the first Prurient record to pack bass heft to match his customary treble assault. While Fernow's vocals have always been central to the Prurient project, they're usually barely audible beneath the punishing swathes of feedback; here they come to the fore, sounding more vulnerable and more powerful than ever before, if occasionally a touch comical (for all the cathartic force of delivery, his lyric about wanting to "take a tree branch and ram it inside you" on 'Palm Tree Corpse' is liable to raise a smile). Sniggers aside, some of the best and most accessible music Fernow's ever recorded can be found on this album: the title track is a masterful bit of post-apocalytic ambient, reminding us of that Stars Explode split with Cold Cave, but less clogged, more vividly realised. Bold, original and astonishingly well-produced throughout, Bermuda Drain really is a new peak in Prurient's prolific career; noise fascists might turn their nose up at its synth-pop mannerisms, but for the rest of us it's a welcome twist in the tale. From the cinematic minimal wave of 'Many Jewel Surrounds The Crown', through the snotty electro thrash of 'A Meal Can Be Made' and the coruscating industrial noise of 'Watch Silently', this is an album that surprises and stimulates at every turn; hell, 'Let's Make A Slave' could almost - almost - be Detroit techno. in boomkat

La Vampires Goes Ital - Streetwise (NOT NOT FUN)

La Vampires Goes Ital - Streetwise (NOT NOT FUN) Comentários: *KILLER LP of slow motion fugged-up strut beats, tape loops, stray synthlines and waterstained vocals.* NNF's latest sees Los Angeles' most respected label mistress flick through her rolodex for a new hookup to cruise the strip with. This time it's Daniel Martin-McCormick aka Mi Ami aka Ital, aka one of our favourite producers in the world right now. 'LA Vampires Goes Ital' is a slow motion hi-five of fugged-up strut beats put together from mushed tape loops, stray synthlines and waterstained vocals fed through a matrix of 2nd hand effects. The results are primed for the most dazed days of summer, bobbing from the sun-melted drone pop of 'Streetwise', to the sounds of an inner city festival heard through low-lying smog from ten blocks away on 'Tons Of Love', hearing the baked Soul II Soul vibes of 'A Woman Is A Woman' booming from a nearby car, and checking the head-wreck of 'The Chic Shall Inherit The Earth'. Like they say, it's "...too gritty and blasted for dancing but too bangin' to sit still, this is a real mutant zone...". A must have for those heads who love noise in the middle of summer. in boomkat [Para Ouvir/Samples]

WITCH HOUSE - London's witch house coven

FRIDAY 15th July 2011 , Vogue Fabrics of Dalston. Adress: 66 Stoke Newington Road N16 7XB, London. ..."Witch House (sometimes referred to as drag) is a term used to describe a subgenre of industrial music, which features a prominent hip-hop influence, specifically the 1990s, Houston chopped and screwed sound pioneered by DJ Screw."
Witch House London (WHLND) presents a groundbreaking new idea in London clubbing - the UK's very first regular club night specialising in Witch House, Drone and Gravewave!!
Simply called ‘W', this club night will cater for those who are interested in the dark, ethereal, visual, chopped and screwed genre (known commonly as Witch House) and will feature Djs at the very forefront of this new and mysterious East London scene.
In fitting with the scene, the venue is small, dark and obscure - the sound system is excellent!
The brainchild of /\dam (Cold In Berlin) and ••∆•• (Shadowofseven), the new club night will also feature DJs Sebastian (Robot Elephant Records), and (...) Story Of Isaac on
the decks from 9pm until way past the Witching Hour.
There are plans to feature a 30 minute live set from various Witch House acts on each night - starting with London's newest Gravewave group ••∆•• Shadowofseven on the opening night.
The club rules are simple -
No Blogging, No Photography, No Identity!
Admission to this new and exciting cult event costs £4 before 11pm and £5 all night afterwards.

Nan Goldin's Fire Leap Exhibition at Sprovieri Gallery

Nan Goldin's Fire Leap Exhibition at Sprovieri Gallery, Jun 24 - Aug 6, 2011. "Nan Goldin found fame through taking photographs of friends and documenting her life in a process that started when she was a teenager and has continued throughout her life. These photographs of drag queens and club kids now hang on the walls of the world's art institutions, telling a tale of New York in the 80s; drugs, sexual experimentation and AIDS. Since that time Goldin has continued to take photographs and exhibit her work around the world.Last week an exhibition of her work opened at the Sprovieri Gallery in London, including two grids of photographs that the artist sees as a great change in her work and also a slide show, ‘Fire Leap’, which she describes as ‘The Ballad but children’, a multi faceted portrait of the children in her life." read more

Hype Williams - Kelly Price W8 Gain Vol.II EP

Hype Williams - Kelly Price W8 Gain Vol.II EP (Hyperdub)Comentários: If you'd told us back in 2009 that Hype Williams would one day be releasing an EP on Hyperdub, we'd have raised our eyebrows, but a year or so later it actually makes sense - Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland's predilection for sickly-psychedelic synths, rugged beats and a sense of occluded urban dread making them a simpatico if still bold addition to Kode9's stable. Have they altered their sound for the bass-heads? Nah, course not, and nor do they need to - for all its lo-fi patina, Hype's music has always been heavy-as-f*ck on the subs. That said, opener 'Rise Up' is a pretty mellow affair, as anyone who heard the version on that uber-limited white label issue earlier this year will already know; in a similar vein to their Sade rip 'The Throning', it's an almost Balearic haze of sighing strings, crisp claps, smacked-out boogie-funk-bass and Copeland's distant, pining vocals. 'Boss Man' is a cheerier but witchier number, synths strafing haughtily across unquantised drum hits; 'Farthing Wood Dub' is as cute and enchanting as its namesake, but still delightfully unstable, like John Barry's Midnight Cowboy soundtrack reimagined by a cracked-out Clams Casino. But it's the closing 'Badmind' that's the masterstoke - sampled American voices delivering stentorian lectures about death, auto-eroticism and, er, Ezra Pound against a shaky gamelan and sub-bass backdrop somewhere between Ryuichi Sakamoto and sino-grime; the lack of context for their ruminations, coupled with droop and sway of the synths, is quite overwhelming in its effect Yep, this EP is just mind-melting, low-end-savvy audio surrealism as only Hype Williams know how; a big, big 12".in boomkat
