Lighten Up Sounds

Cruelty s/t c36
cruel“Cruelty, very far from being a vice, is the first sentiment Nature injects in us all.” – Marquis De Sade. New full length Horror-lounge electro transmission from Minneapolis trio of Naomi Joy (Mother of Fire, Reno), Markus Lunkenheimer (Skoal Kodiak, Mar Habrine) & Andy Neubauer (Impractical Cockpit, Twin Whips). Gurgling beauty, not without groove yet retaining a foreboding bummer approach. Spidery knife edge guitar solos and abrasive reptile-hiss wave upon rhythmic lurch. Organ crank, steady thud and bass plod, sealed with poisonous vocal kiss. Vague in regards to classifiable genre form, Cruelty melts various respective elements to form both noxious ointment and healing salve. A collection of tracks recorded in private locations around the city of Minneapolis, compiled over the years 2014-2015. Professionally duplicated to high-bias Cobalt tape, metallic gold shell cassette with white imprint comes packaged with full color two panel double sided J-card in white and clear Norelco case. Limited edition of 100.

Clear Fluids – ‘Sicariidae’ C20
clearClear Fluids returns to the imprint presenting a strong new EP of synthesized spider sound, straddling the line between epic adventure and active ambient themes. Five tracks focused on the instinct, behavior and classification of Arachnae, with sound influences ranging from classic horror score minimalism to contemporary dungeon synth grandeur. Clear shell cassette with olive green labels comes packaged with full color card stock j-card featuring original photography of an eight legged neighbor, includes vellum insert. Hand numbered edition of 25. “The spider’s touch, how exquisitely fine! Feels at each thread and lives along the line.” – Alexander Pope
