Greymouth – ‘Giant Squid’ cs

Various brickbats of garage desertion, precipitous duende and blasted naiveté from the midnight zone by New Zealand-expatriate, Tokyo rockers, Mark Sadgrove and Mark Anderson. Piccolo-like guitar intrusion and truant buzz cross sent Sprechstimme snarl and post-punk deliverance through electro-acoustic afterburn. Dungeon Taxis 24. $5USD


Preggy Peggy and the Lazy Babymakers – ‘A Short Visit To The
City That Bleeds’ cs

Twisted, post-studio diary entry ‘recorded in and around a rental car parked on leafy 34th street in Baltimore, MD, autumn 2012’ by Cambridge, MA Weirdo, Angela Sawyer. ‘A Short Visit’ interfaces tranquil vérité and candor with preternatural serenade, a procession of vocalized impressions captured in unsettling, inert soliloquy. Dungeon Taxis 26. $5USD

Joseph Hammer – ‘Albany/Philadelphia’ cs

LAFMS doyen, Joseph Hammer’s document of two East Coast performances from 2012 exhibits his incisive glomming of the prospected archival materials at his gloved hands. Developing a cyclical palimpsest of gnarled and reassembled pop-historical sonics fed live on reel tape, Hammer’s magnetic alchemy slips through fizzy orbits of accelerated rap, severed axe licks, disembodied horn refrains, drum shreds and ventriloquized croons, lighting up the plastic materiality and equivocally vaporous nature of the volatile, musical sources. Dungeon Taxis 28. $5USD


Weirding Module – ‘The Voyage In’ cs

Michael Troutman’s eponymous trip traverses fugal passages of sparkling, arpeggi undulation and tranquil wind ornament, rolling with an LFO hull squelch across a billowed percussive vista of immersive, allegorical splendor. Dungeon Taxis 29. $5USD

John Pilcher & Martin McKelvey - 'A Bun Dance' CD

The Eagle Has Strayed in this 48-minute opus of lunar musique concrete right out of the late 60s in Hastings, NZ. These squiggly prescient jams emerge on the very 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's inaugural moonlanding, having originally sampled and plunged that stuttering, televized transmission into another sea of tranquility and magnificent desolation right out here in an even more remote solar system. But that reference ends there. Stellar tapezones joyously light years ahead of time. Mastered by Surface of the Earth's Paul Toohey. Dungeon Taxis 5. $14USD
