#050 A SNAKE IN THE GARDEN – ‘THE SHEPHERDS ARE LOST, THE SHEEP ARE SCATTERED’ C23
The pounding of metal opens this release, tension and scrape build to a mass of affected scrap. The focus on one aspect of “Noise” is mastered expertly in an exercise of initial restraint giving way to ferocious onslaught. Perfect.
#051 KEVIN GREENSPON – ‘PUSH YOU AWAY FOREVER’ C26
Originally a private release “Push You Away Forever” collects the original tracks recorded live on KXLU with a studio recording of “Barring Will”. Kevin Greenspon has perfected the craft of floating picked guitar lines over otherworldly static and drone allowing each piece to build to impressive climax then soothes to start all over again. This release opens a window on a prolific artist, close your eyes and look inside.
#052 THE DAVID RUSSELL SNAKE – ‘MIRROR MIRROR’ C20
Rhythmic and dynamic loops from David Russell (Polar Envy, Relentless Corpse, Collapsed Arc). “Mirror Mirror” is the second release from this project based on precise loops spliced together with great attention to detail. Percussion, voice, horns, feedback and ??? used to create sharp changes which build to peaks of aural confusion.
