Decaycast REVIEWS: Urdwyg The Goldrr – Psychic Volume 2 ” cassette (2013)

Urdwyg The Goldrr is a longstanding recording project based out of the UK. Pop this little dirty sucker in and instant audio assault begins to creep through the speakers. Urdwyg The Goldrr blends subtle feedback tomes , voice , the occasional blast of Harsh noise, screeching manic vocals, and big long wasps of screeching feedback. Low fi toilet scraping grumblings regurgitate belches of hot air noise squeezing through the cracks in the skin, kissing and slurping the microphone of the cassette recorder. The tape begins with a women’s voice; distant and distraught As this tape goes on, the oddness and fidelity degrades into a confusing start – stop pause button stream of consciousness composition. Voice melts to tape but the message is lost (or found in the muck. The tape recorder is emphasized through the pops, hisses, and analog artifacts as they build up into loops of scraping, beeping transmissions cast into the trash compactor. No fancy studio editing here, just primitive low fidelity, tape collage. Gurgling mouth sounds are a main sound source, however there’s a plethora of bottom of the steel barrel type “field recordings” cut in through manic pause button nervousness.

The chaos of Urdwyg The Goldrr on this release mirrors audio tape in record mode thrown in a subconscious blender of hissing and pissing, while the voice disappears and reappears through “signing” humming and sucking rhythmic amalgamations of the human voice .

The B side starts off with more direct, low do harsh noise of squeezing, squealing belts being stretched across the damaged audio tape hypothesis. Loops appear somewhat arbitrarily, repeat for a few bars and then are swallowed and subsequently vomited up through non sensual, non sensical surrealist style “voice” and dare I even say , “vocals”. The pitch speed maniac machine of FILTHY TURD’s operatic vomiting of springs in the throat dominates the b side as nervous chatterings of nonsense build a brick wall of confusion and disorientation. The overall lack of bass and low midrange present on this tape leads me to believe that it’s all recorded on a cassette or micro cassette player, and if it isn’t then I’d love to know the recording technique. Mouth meets blown out microphone over and over and over again- blending with the lowest fidelity scraping and breaking sounds to define the FILTHY TURD sound. The garbled voice that agitates constantly through this cassette is probally the strong point, and elevates this release to the status of “truly odd noise” what is the intent and why is the intention so hellishly weird?

PS. These  tapes are recorded as one-offs, all  with slightly different sounds,  so if  you’d like a copy contact FILTHY TURD at their bandcamp and they will give you instructions on how to obtain your very own!
