[mt118cs] Nick Klein – ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ C30
Recorded partially while in transit during his European tour earlier this year, and following a string of firmly techno-rooted EP’s for techno-rooted labels, this is a first in that it highlights and links — seamlessly — the many versatilities of this New York by way of Florida producer; from miminal and cyclical modular tracks to experiments with software processing and acoustic guitar, while also retaining his specific hybrid of industrial and lurid, aphotic club music language. 100 copies.
[mt119cs] Tinnitustimulus – ‘Punct/Contrapunct’ C20
Four punctual tracks of frenetic, yet assured energy highly informed by mid-2000’s Southern California moves — from jarring and massed stereo profusion to moments of shrill, anxious feedback stasis, not a moment is wasted in these twenty minutes. As a well-established live force, if you’ve attended any noise fest on the East Coast within the past few years, chances are Tomas Bennett’s set arrived at the peak of the night and threw the show into overdrive, rendering all that came after obsolete. It’s time for his recorded work to do the same. 100 copies.
