DECAYCAST Reviews: SEA MOSS “BREAD BORED” CS/Digital (Crash Symbols, 2017)

a0364792524_10SEA MOSS is a perfect example of  why duos are sometimes the most engaging for heavy and experimental music. SEA MOSS, splice all of the specific aspects that make duo’s so special; tension, dynamics, a call and response/push pull type of  dynamic, (that often gets lost or muddled once a third or forth voice is added),  into a fever  dream ritual of distorted noise rock, and rhythmic, percussion heavy noise. When contrasting  voices push and pull, interesting and chaotic things can happen, and that’s exactly what this Seattle duo does, on their freshman album “Bread Bored”. For one, the sound is a perfect blend of Noa Ver  homemade, noisy, chaotic, dynamic home-brewed synthesizers, which she popularized in her solo project Mulva Myasis  and Zach D’Agostino percussion and live sequencing which meld together perfectly to create a raw, cacophonous blend of abstracted, cut up, angular noise / rock. Noa Ver create walls of glitched-out, sputtering, chirping, regurgitating bent and mangled waveforms blending together to create rhythmic walls of unique, raw synthesized noise over D’Agostino, who belts forth a seemingly endless array of broken rhythms, fusing both analog and digital sources to create a chaotic, chopped up, backbone of heavy, flipped out perscussion. Also we  couldn’t really talk about this release  without mentioning the intricate, dense, psychedelic collaged cover art/Layout done by Liz Pavlovic, offering the perfect visual counterpart to the dense, tripped out, broken sounds of SEA MOSS.

Having seen SEA MOSS live in 2017 (and BTW this project is barely a year old, and has already toured, released this album on CRASH SYMBOLS and self-released several live recordings) I had a rough idea of what to expect from this tape, and it really represents their live sound well. The aptly titled “Bread Bored” oscillates between more noise, even free jazz styled works, using more  chopped, off timed rhythm tracks, and the  synths are  sputtering more like a trumped or saxophone than a synthesizer,  such on the  second track “Infernal Stutter”, whereas the very next song, “Wanna See A Trick?”, perhaps my personal favorite on the album falls much more into an early Load Records style of noise rock where the synths and walls of noise act as a heavy low end for the pummeling 4/4 breakdowns which dominate the song, or  similarly styled and  varied is the finale “Sea Sickness”, which blends thudding  drums, more  buzzing, screaming oscillators and time/tempo changes that will leave your  head  spinning,  There’s also a whole lot varied vocal styles which range from long swelled, yelling to short, antagonistic bursts of  sound, yelling, fighting , screaming, screaming, threatening, impactful, and sharp in unique ways even though the lyrics are  rather indistinguishable from each other. Despite this, the vocals provide an additional layer of tension and chaos, especially when complimenting the heavy, smashed out percussion riffs in a sort of call in response type of way. At times, it’s as if all the instruments are being played as their opposites; or something they’re totally unreleased to; synths are played as horns, drums are played as basses, vocals are an additional layer of percussion, but also so much more.

SEA MOSS stands above and beyond a lot of other offerings in noise rock camp so far for 2017 that have pummeled my ears. SEA MOSS has a seemingly uncanny ability to pack three or four different styles and feelings, even within a single track (and mind you most of the tracks are under four minutes, some even in the one to two-minute range). This music could be from 1999 or it could be from 2199, we haven’t totally figured that out yet, and that’s part of why it’s intriguing. The cassette is sold out; however, you can grip the digital album for five dollars from the Crash Symbols  band camp page. Be sure to check out a myriad of other releases from the West Virginia based imprint, while you’re on the band camp and make sure to follow SEA MOSS here!

On The Origin Of Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse: About two weeks to the day before Ghostship, we returned home after days of protests; as always feeling defeated, BEING defeated another day of violence enacted upon the communities’ consciousness; Witnessing the beautiful families of oakland wading through never ending rivers of trauma enacted on all marginalized communities through state sanctioned violence and racism in Oakland, and the Bay Area at large. A compilation will not solve this, a thousand compilations will not solve this, but we have done nothing to combat this and we have to start somewhere. ROGUE PULSE / GRAVITY COLLAPSE is an uncertain yet thorough attempt to demonstrate to propose a restructuring of how artists, labels, promoters, venues and other “institutions” and INSTITUTIONS use their privilege, time, talents, and resources. But before we could do that, and begin to unpack the complexities around all of these issues, in one single night, the community lost thirty six souls, including founding members of our collective, artists on our label, family members, and so much more in Ghostship and then months after RP/GC was released, almost a dozen more in the San Pablo Fire months later which displaced hundreds of longstanding Black members of the community, and lastly the North Bay fires. There is only so many ways to process or not process this stuff, but we came up with a compilation. We weren’t sure how long it would be, who would be included, how we would present it to the public without exacerbating the commodification of grief, and without taking visibility away from traumas enacted against the Oakland community at large, outside of the “artistic” community. We weren’t really at all sure how we would divide up the money, how we would promote it, but sometimes you don’t have any other fucking choice, even if it raised $100 you never know how far that could go.. Ghostship was, and still is a horrendous blow to our local creative community, many of whom had already been resisting against the structural wrath and chaos of a white supremacist, sexist, capitalist culture, and therefore already just struggling to create and survive, day by day hour by hour minute by minute. In short, many communities were fragmented and tormented long before Ghostship, and Ghostship, for many of us, brought a blade of mass trauma slicing through reality, grief, chaos, distrust and confusion that uprooted the community in so many different ways. The Immediate Fire relief fund literally saved people’s lives by the way and all the love should be given to them and those working on the periphery as well.

What was crucial for us was linking in those deeply affected and lost in Ghostship fire while also keeping the financial and conceptual focus on the organizations we chose to support before the fire, Black Lives Matter and St James Infirmary in San Francisco. Before we knew it, it was out. It was like the best and worst possible distraction, and in MANY ways, postponed a lot of the mental and physical healing that members of the collective needed to do for ourselves but at the same time it was, and still very much is an entry point for beginning the process. For me personally, this has easily been the single most important release I have ever been a part of for numerous reasons, but the single biggest reason is because it saved my life, literally, so many times I cannot even count and it did that by showing me the undeniable ferociousness of our community. Every track on ROGUE PULSE / GRAVITY COLLAPSE, came as a blessing, a hug, a shoulder to cry on, but also they came as weapons, one hundred and eighty seven weapons, and we couldn’t be happier with the finished offering, as it strives to demonstrate the unrelenting power through all of the trauma and grief that our community and the people of Oakland, through various intersections possess and present with every moment that they exist. Nihar’s essential, heartfelt, and nearly perfect distillation of the thirteen hours of Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse, carefully and masterfully sharpens heavy stones of grief into razor blades of warmth, love, creativity, and determination of our community like daggers to the throat of a broken, corrupt system. Every tear shed will eventually freeze to form an icicle to thrust into the socket of a system which has cast away so many amazing, beautiful, creative, people.

This mix is one for everyone who has lost a loved one at the hands of systemic violence. Your tears will not go unnoticed, and this is just the beginning.

CBN – “BE THERE WHEN I DIE, ALL I WANT IS UR SADNESS” (MOONWORSHIPPER RECORDS, 2017)

REVIEW BY Rob Buttrum (FILTH, OUT OF BODY RECORDS)

CBN IS THE MASTER OF OPPRESSIVE AS FUCK, DARK, BROODING AND DANK POWER
ELECTRONICS. MENACING DRONES & UNCOMFORTABLY BURIED VOCALS INTO NASTY SYNTH PROGRESSIONS. A MASTER OF BUILDING A
HEAVY EMOTIONAL SETTING. CBN CONTINUES THIS TREND BUT WITH MUCH MORE DYNAMICS AND A SLIGHTLY MORE INDUSTRIAL
SOUNDS THAN BEFORE. IF POSSIBLE ITS EVEN HEAVIER AND MORE FOREBODING THAN EVER. TWO LONG TRACKS MAKE UP THIS TWISTED AND CRUSHING RECORD.

TRACK 1.
I JUST WANNA WATCH PIGS DROWN – PURE HATE AND DISGUST FOR THE SCUM OF THE EARTH WE CALL PIGS. TREATED CB RADIO COLLAGE FADES INTO A RHYTHMIC METALLIC POUNDING.A TRANCE INDUCING DIRGE THAT GROWS WITH EACH MINUTE. BRUTAL AND HARSH AS HELL YET HYPNOTIC. BEAUTIFUL, DISGUSTING AND UNRELENTING ARE WAVES OF NOXIOUS SYNTH
PROGRESSIONS AND THUNDEROUS PULSES WITH MASSIVE, OOZING BASS TONES THAT HIT YOU OVER AND OVER. NO REMORSE, CRUSHING. AGONIZING & RAW BELTS OF VOCALS OVERLAY
THIS THICK AND MELTING SLAB OF SOUND. HUGE AND THICK AS IT CRUMBLES, SHARP AND PIERCING AS IT MELTS INTO A POOL OF SHIMMERING SLIME. ONLY SMOKE AND REVENGE
REMAIN IN THE AIR AS ALL ELSE DISSIPATES.

TRACK 2
PERISH AWAY – NAUSEATING SYNTH LEADS CUT DEEP AS YOUR SIMULTANEOUSLY CRUSHED EVER SO SLOWLY BY WAVES OF PUTRID BASS AND UNCOMFORTABLE SQUEALS & SCREAMS.
A NIGHTMARISH HELL IS CONJURED. EERIE FREQUENCIES SLOWLY GRINDING ON YOUR BONES TILL THEY TURN TO DUST. A MASSIVE PRESENCE WITHERING YOU AWAY TO NOTHING.
SLOWLY GATHERING UP A RHYTHM FOR YOU TO GRASP. MIGHT BE THE ONLY THING LEFT TO HANG ON TO BEFORE YOU PERISH.”

VOLTAGE DROP Party Pays Tribute to Damaged Beats and the Esoteric Side of Electronic Music with KID606 & RUSSELL E.L. BUTLER – This Friday in Oakland!

 

13041174_263517540651765_8293500735442281960_o

VOLTAGE DROP is a new  collective of  Oakland  based  artists, DJ’s, musicians, promoters, and music  collectors with a deep seated interest in preserving the  rich legacy of experimental, beat oriented electronics and industrial music in the  Bay Area and  beyond. Voltage Drop specifically focuses on  the crossroads  between early hip hop/electro/beat driven electronics, and industrial/body music. VD  boasts influences as  vast as Throbbing  Gristle / Industrial Records, Cybotron/Juan Atkins, SPK, J Dilla, Coil, Tesco UK,  Pierre Henry, DJ Rashad, and a myraid of local and international  contemporary, yet  esoteric artists, labels, and parties,  in which the bay area has  such a rich history in. Voltage Drop aims to throw events  merging  local and international performers, artists, DJs, and  VJ’s , and  also has a vested interest  in attempting to synthesize  often fragmented sub scene clicks within the oh so  spoiled bay area. The bay area has  a rich, bright, and  complicated tradition of  experimental electronics and  industrial music,  Voltage  Drop is here to cast their  own unique  archival lens on the  history, present, and  future of the arc of influence and collective consciousness of  sound.

One part of that  history is  KID606 and  Tigerbeat6 Records, run by Miguel Del Pedro of Perpetual Dawn LA, a monthly  Berlin inspired, rave/nightclub.kid606_030315

 

KID606 has  been hosting, booking, performing , and  archiving and releasing  his damaged and unique styles of  techno, body music, ambient, remixes,  breakbeat and just about  every other style of beat driven electronics  all throughout the world over the  last two decades and Voltage Drop is  some proof that there’s still room in the bay to present this  always captivating  and  engaging artist in a somewhat  fresh platform! Voltage Drop brings KID606  and  their complex, classy,    eclectic   electronic stylings to the  fourth installment of Voltage  Drop tomorrow in Oakland with an exclusive live set,  at the  Legionnaire  Saloon, the new monthly home of the  Voltage Drop party. The  nights opener, Russell E.L. Butler (formerly of Black jeans) , who is no newbie in the scene either opens the  gig with a live hardware set, boasting  a new cassette release on SF/Berlin based, Jacktone Records.  You can stream Russell’s new  tape, titled “Visions of The  Future”  here 

a0362639995_16

 

The space in between will be filled by Voltage Drop Resident DJ‘s, KOZI, BONUS BEAST, MALOCCULSION, AND FUNKY V and FLOWER PATTERN on the visuals as always. Come out, it’s not to be missed! Vital info for the party below!  SF Weekly seems  to  think you  should too, as they  just named  VOLTAGE  DROP in the  Top % Parties To Goto This  Weekend! 

“KID606 (Tigerbeat6 / Perpetual Dawn / L.A.) A native of Venezuela, the Kid (aka Miguel Trost De Pedro) moved to San Diego early in life. After becoming interested in samplers, he began recording and released some material with Spacewurm, Ariel, and Disc (a collaboration with Lesser and Matmos), three acts associated with the Southern California label Vinyl Communications. Kid606 debuted on his own with a full-length for VC, 1998’s Don’t Sweat the Technics. A split CD with Lesser gained release later that year, as well as the VC EPs Unamerican Activity and Dubplatestyle. De Pedro kicked off his Tigerbeat6 label in 2000 with the release of Kid606 and Friends, Vol. 1, an album of remixes and collaborations.”

“RUSSELL E.L. BUTLER (Opal Tapes / Jacktone Records / Oakland) Russell has been making waves in the Bay Area music scene for years. His project Black Jeans evoked the emotional and physical qualities of minimal synth and electronic body music to transport listeners to hidden and forgotten sonic landscapes. For the past few years he has been making a brand of stripped down machine techno that has evolved rapidly with each successive release. It is fitting that transplantation and adoption are themes in Russell’s music, as he based his 2015 album, “God is Change” on Octavia Butler’s Parable series of novels, in which these are central tenets of the philosophy that the books explore. Since its release “God is Change” has received major acclaim, with NPR naming it one of their top 10 favorite electronic albums of 2015.”

Decaycast Reviews : DIAGRAM :A “Confusion Rituals” Cassette (Fluxus Montana, 2015)

Decaycast Reviews : DIAGRAM A “Confusion Rituals” Cassette (Fluxus Montana, 2015)
Another stellar release from the blossoming Montana noise/experimental label , FLUXUS MONTANA. This one from the elusive Diagram A project, consisting of . Dan Greenwood and Alicia Renadette of. Holyoke, MA. Greenwood has been concocting home brewed instruments and oscillators out of their reclusive studios for years and here’s a sold document of some of these explorations, “Confusion Rituals”  opens up with some raw, humming oscillator tones  reminiscent of Nick Collins homemade oscillator instruments but quickly builds up in amplitude, intensity and chaotic ness. What started as some single oscillator drones working in harmony quickly escalates into an all out tone war zone, with twisting, binding, cutting sonic warfare against the listener. Waveforms cut, bite, gnaw, curve around and manipulate  each other  in and out  of the aural mix and before long we have lost our orientation and are thrown into an oscillator free fall of Sign waves, square waves, white noise and about  everything else in between.

All of the sounds are compressed into a super thick, sludgy wall of sharp tones, raking against the ear and eyeball, vibrating the teeth slowly but steadily out of the listeners skull piece.  There’s a lot of folks making similarly styled noise music, especially with the recent rise in the popularity of the endless explorative array  that is modular synthesis , but Diagram A seems to get a certain organic sound to the machines they are using, there could easily be field recordings buried deep in the mix, or there could very easily not be but we would never know. This cassette is a tone poem to the maximum! Many of the tones grow their own sound branches, extend, crack and fall to the ground, and give nutrition to a new aspect of the composition.  Diagram : A is simultaneously all over the place and compositionally sound and consice at the same time, with the artist always paying a close ear to the mix, and layering of what could easily build up into a monotonous, unrelenting wall of uninteresting noise, but this never happens as the players are LISTENING and we can hear this in the final product.

Keep an ear to the ground, or through the ground rather for Diagram A, as we will be. Definitely some of the more interesting homegrown noise we’ve heard India minute.

“STYROFOAM SANCHEZ is a post industrial sound and sculptural installation personifying the trash island in the pacific gyre. Spawning from a hybrid of human DNA and trash, Sanchez is a dystopian amalgamated magnification of failed civilizations, spliced rogue technologies gone awry spawning dark pulses of technological neurosis and inner psychosis . When fish put fin to sand then you’ll understand, fish can carry guns. Styrofoam Sanchez represents the last molecule before total conversion of humans into futuristic trash receptacles. Human, your skull will be in a museum. The post apocolyptic outfit presents a high intensity, often interactive onslaught of sonic and visual mayhem, utilizing rogue-manufactured styrofoam instruments , voice, synthesizers, custom microphones, as well as live projections and customized light sources ”
