COLD COMFORT – ‘All Power No Sour/Selected Works’
Cold Comfort is Ben Forrester, a musician who since 2021 has been blending punk, electro, drone, metal, hardcore and slacker rock into one humungous sonic melting pot. This 20-track cassette compilation features the debut album “All Power No Sour” and selected works from 2022. Lyrically drawing from mental health episodes, political frustrations and paranormal experiences, this is a collection of revelations that is equal parts cathartic, raging and euphoric.
PLAGUE ARISH & PARADOX ENCOUNTER GROUP – ‘Tarred & Feathered’
A collaborative work of experimental sound art that melds modular synths with noise, dark ambient and industrial atmospherics into unsettling, thought-provoking soundscapes.
TIBSHELF – ‘Understander’
If you’ve ever wondered what a track that samples Albert Ayler, Jimi Hendrix, Terry Riley, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and ‘Withnail & I’ might sound like? Then this album has it. The second album of sampledelic plunderphonics cut n splice from Lee Etherington (founder of TUSK Festival/ former member of tape manglers Posset), twisting and screwing funk hip-hop techno, film dialogue, noise rock and a smorgasbord of every sound from under the sun into a fresh sonic glory like you’ve never imagined.
SHAN – ‘Knotweed’
Debut outing from the Tyneside noise rock/sludge duo, who channel their frustrations with employment, self and prescribed medication, and the current state of the UK through raw, stripped back, unadulterated punk rages. FFO: Unsane, The Melvins, Eyehategod
