Philadelphia’s Lance Simmons, previously of the Dick Neff
and Mirror Men projects, brings us his newest solo endeavor,
Unguent. “Dust Desk” is a long confounding journey through
a parched audio desert ripe with mental illness. Queasy squiggling
synth lines float in front of a mirage of mellow and soothing
loops, briefly suggesting melodies before collapsing back into
a pool of demented buffoonery. Hand silkscreened covers and pro
Two generally confounding tracks of jittery, lurching, and unpredictable instrumentation.
Effected voices, dense buzzing electronics, screeching violin, budget drum machines, and
likely a slew of other unidentifiable culpritsare blended into a warped idea of composition
by the heavily damaged Chicago duo CRIMINALS.
This is a full length 14 track album from Ryan Martin’s Secret Boyfriend project. The tracks
are widely diverse in sound, ranging from mellow acoustic plucking, layered keyboard
experimentation, lo-fi noise tinged pop songs, to full on harsh static blasts, yet they manage
to maintain a firm cohesion and represent themselves as a realized whole. Recommended
for fans of Luxurious Bags, Lazy Magnet, and Haves&Thirds.
First release from this new Philadelphia two piece. Detective
jazz and spoken word meet power electronics and junk noise for 7 head
scratching compositions.College pays off this time. White silkscreen
on off white paper w/insert.
“Mule on Tape” is a soundtrack
composed by Rick Weaver to accompany
his movie of the same name. I haven’t
seen the film, but judging by the
music, it’s clearly a savage bareback
ride through an inner psyche sculpted
by isolation, decorated in a faux
‘wild west’ motif. Popping and woozy
percussion tracks, skillful organ
work, and altogether just plain
strange sounds and vocals are paired
side by side to create what comes
off sounding like a pre-synthesizer
sci-fi horror western, somehow still
from modern times.
