RED MASS & ALEXANDRA GUTNIK - Split Tape (2011)




Merging electronic treatments with live & sampled guitars, both acts create a weird capsule of eclectic confusion. RED MASS explore tape warped 60's psych rock, glitchy free jazz & heavy noise-punk in their short 20 minute side. ALEXANDRA GUTNIK uses old rock samples as a building ground for her electro-acoustic poems & sound collages. Great collab on this one...

JLK - Cold City Country (2010)




Jane L. Kasowicz takes you for a ride thru the long and lonesome road of her desert psyche. Using an old country music cassette as her backdrop, she lays down some distorted blues & rockabilly rhythms that bounce along her echoing vocals and coyote-like yelps. Noisier guitar works on the B) side flow with ease as the tempo reaches a faster pace, tapping into a psycho-active sound banquet...
A true experimental debut.

AUTISTIC ARGONAUTS - Magic Maggi Moments (2010)



Listening to Autistic Argonauts' music is like experiencing a brainwash experiment gone bad... Psychotic trauma sure to arise. Voices and sound effects moving from side to side, like an ocean of detuned electronics. Not mainly focusing on synths to build their sound, they dabble with abstract samples to create a bubbling intensity akin to Trisomie 21's weirdo freakouts. The second side of the tape focuses on subtler arrangements, sort of like a space-age fairy tale...

+++

Over the last couple of years this guy has been making a name for himself with a whole ton of releases in a relatively short period of time. Making CDr appearances on Blackest Rainbow, Striate Cortex, Reverb Worship, Frequent Sea, Moribund Tree etc. From the backwards synth machinations of opener 'Life Without' things head into the blissed out classic ambient mode of 'Dominion' onto the frantic muted hi-hats and mysterious soundscapes of 'On The Run'. By the time we reach the spooked futurisms of 'Prisoner Of Conscience' it's clear that this is a cerebral journey that wont let go. The title track's floating tones and drones give way to the ultra-stoned electro of 'Statelessness' before things get even more slow motion and drugged out on 'Stranded'. 'Under The Falling Stars' gets dark and cosmic with the synthetic sounds of amplified wind and cascading waves. Finally 'Drifting Dreamless' is magnificently vivid with lush kosmische style synthesizer orchestrations and Radiophonic bleeps and textures.
A ride well worth jumping on for sure.

PRADADA - Phantasy Visions (2009)






As the summer approaches, Pradada spikes the punch with his long awaited gothwave / psych surf album Phantasy Visions. These songs were recorded last summer, in the heat of beatbox driven garage rock and the flair and weirdness of drugged out synth spirals. This is the material that gave birth to the BEKO Digital Single and will be closely followed by an EP on cassette a little later this summer entitled Junk Ruby.

+++

Phantasy Visions commandeers the disturbed ritual-waves emanating from the depths of a cosmic jungle-vortex. Busted drums churn through a minor-key cult-fest that rivals The Pink Noise for its basement-macabre. PRADADA wins by reaching new levels of phantasmic antipathy within the layers of echo and destruction. A disturbing record not for the light of spirit and a certified contender for strangest album of the year. Forward all psychological damage claims to Hobo Cult mainstay Francesco de Gallo.

WONDER WHEEL - Natural Selection (2010)



Paul A. Rosales, Wonder Wheel's creative mastermind, gave me the keys to the mansion when he said I could do a compilation album of his material. His back catalog now includes 34 albums, all of which was recorded in only 6 years! After a couple days of intensive listening, I selected some of my favorites from 2006-2009, which include home-recording gurus R. Stevie Moore and Ines Navarro. Avid enthusiast of his unique take on outsider synth pop, I was thrilled to wander the echoing halls of his lo-fi pop gems, filled with flowing 80's AM radio melodies, bouncing delayed vocals, shoegazing guitar fuzz, minimal beatbox cacophony and arpeggiated randomness. When you start listening to the music, you are instantly pulled into a whirl pool of teenage desire, angst and ecstasy. This is some dreamy, yet propulsive music with a lot of heart. The songs read like an open diary with encrypted messages. You get a feeling of what it could mean, but in the end, you just want to listen to his music over and over to try and understand this puzzling haze. Addictive sounds for the masses, with a refreshingly new approach to catchy writing. Some songs barely hold together, sounds just bouncing off each other... but that's the beauty of it. The ramshackle structures that keep you asking for more. Although, in recent years, Paul has been pushing the enveloppe with a cleaner and more distinctive arpeggiated synth palette, widening his musical focus in the fields of sound art and electroacoustic experiments (download Untouchables). Also being released this summer, Wonder Wheel I, another compilation album which will be out on vinyl, cd and digital download from the fine folks at Care In The Community Recordings (UK). There will be collaborative songs with Pradada and Ines Navarro appearing on that album. Stay tuned for more information on Wonder Wheel by visiting these links:

McDeaf McDeath McDead - Religious Undertoad (2008)




McDDD drops some oldschool wisdom with these bible/acid soaked lyrics. His weird and freaky monotone flow is sometimes paired up with a high pitched version of itself... giving the sermon of God on 70s/80s style R&B joints with a certain NY hiphop flavor. Other tracks push the limits of horror film soundtracks with their outsider/paranoid tape slowdowns with warbles and crazy organ finger flip-outs. These religious highschool confessionals are definitely some of my favorite jams released by McDDD.

HOBO CUBES - Hypnotic Infinitum (2010) - Patente Records






PATENTE Records (from Quebec) was kind enough to release a limited edition Hobo Cubes cd, which was delivered in person saturday night at the HOBO CUBES + SUNDRIPS + BERNARDINO FEMMINIELLI show. As a first full length album, Hypnotic Infinitum combines ambient arpeggiated soundscapes with kosmische driven melodies from some distant hallucinated tropics. Heavenly atmospheres float above lost islands, while the natives play their flutes and chant wordless symphonies... this is definitely the best sounding album Hobo Cubes has concieved. Special collaboration with Bernardino Femminielli on track 4. Beautiful die-cut cover on olive colored art paper.

1) Crystalline Vibrations
2) Axxa
3) L'Ultimo Sole
4) Onde Astrali w/ Bernardino Femminielli
5) Paradiso Perso

40 copies
CDR - 41:30

----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------

Existing within the submerged foliage of a hyper dimensional psychedelic jungle, Hypnotic Infinitum captures the untamed reverberations emanating from the core of unknowable places. At their centre there exists a triforce; a triumvareate of underwater libraries, astral exotica, and the granular brilliance of experimentation, from which Hobo Cubes emerge as a new wave of brilliant fringe mascinations. Yet another side project of the highly imaginative Francesco de Gallo (with some help from Bernardino Femminielli). The album is packaged beautifully by the die-cut masters from Patente. Amazing.

+++

It's amazing how engaging the music of Montreal's Hobo Cubes can be with so few discernible hooks (I'm talking beats, melodies, harmonies—real traditional elements of musical substance), especially since it’s not totally ambient, and not really noise. But mastermind Francesco de Gallo reveals something uniquely musical here anyway, rooting his compositions in simple chromaticism and letting the pieces hover in palindromic stases for extended periods of time. The actual sounds on the disc are quite nice. Most synths have a self-contained buzz that radiate like layers of colorful TV static, squeezed and compressed into singular tones that are robust while also razor thin and pallid. Best of all, the music stacks these sounds across one another, from high pitches to deep swelling baritones that throb with irregular pulses while everything swirls in horizontal motion, making for a dizzyingly hypnotic state (jiving perfectly with this record's title).

"Hypnotic Infinitum" overall sounds like a gathering of ghosts—every sound produced might be one: a fluttering synth, a moaning swoop, a howling whoosh, or collaborator Bernardino Femminielli's distant vocals on "Onde Astrali." This record only invites the friendly ones, though. Otherworldly, grim and creepy? Absolutely, but also light and playful with whirligig effects and buoyant voices. See particularly "Axxa," which is the one song on the album with any kind of groove whatsoever, finding these digital ghouls at some sort of ball, dancing and twirling about the chandelier and old portraits. Suffice it to say, this is without a doubt one of the strangest releases I've heard all year, as alienating (and really, alien) as it is irresistible. 8/10

MAGIC BEACH & ASSS / Split C-30 (2010)





For their first release, Magic Beach (Hobo Cubes & Monkey King / GOA) embark on a drugged out hiking trip up a cosmic mountain... looking for the hidden truth at the Cloud Temple. Electronic waves merge with distorted guitar feedback and loop into an ever evolving haze of stoner dreams. Noisy vocal mantras and high god guitar shredding float above heavy tribal drums. A definite kraut burner!

ASSS (from Portland), move away from their drone inducing drumming to subtler electronic treatments that will fill your blood with a meditative liquid, slowly bubbling as different effects pop into the mix. Their weird vocals and heavy cello-drone will make you wanna spread a thick layer of hashish on your brain and smoke it. Go check them out on tour in March with Chrome Wings.

Hobo Cult has successfully melted my face with another uniquely packaged artifact from the bent minds of Velvet Chrome. Channeling the traces of a psych-dementia found in the bowels of abandoned structures and drenching it in the New Zealand acid of Wreck Small Speakers on Expensive Stereos, Velvet Chrome provides the only aural experience akin to a post-Warriors Coney Island vacation: desolation, litter, and decrepit rides breaking through the morning light; a psychedelic vision from oracles and witches brewed for your stereo. It’s bleak, beautiful, chaotic, desperate, intimate, and comes packaged in an unassuming, one-of-a-kind CDR limited to 30 copies. A singular sound that will surely resonate with anyone looking for reverberations on the fringes of musical genre. I can’t get enough, so I ask: WHAT MORE DO YOU FREAKS WANT?

this tape one gets truly lost in, from the way the tape is painted black so you dont know which side you're on, to the lack of any tracklisting... luckily i was able to figure it out. laser faces has fragmentary jamming to the fullest; beats against a nice signal esque sound at one point to dissonance next to rhythmaticness, it ends with this cheesy beat, it was great and... i was pretty confused at its intricacies. the velvet widow side is similar but darker and more drony; the tape has a certain quality to it, id call it dingy; its good for driving at night in the woods with autumn leaves and screetchy crackety pickup sticks on the road with the yelllow lines

WASTED WIDOW - LES DOUCHES ROMAINES (2009)

Rivaling Fixture Records as best-designed multi-format boutique label in Canada, Hobo Cult really delivered with a small package of incredibly wyld and strange music; Wasted Widow being the first of many reviews to come. Caught in the imaginative triangulation of punk, noise-psych, and experimentalism, Les Douches Romaines captures a unique moment in uncategorized music. No-gaze? Adjective-wave? Who cares? Classification will certainly fail when filing away Wasted Widow’s wailing distorted guitar, granular noise, vocals delayed beyond calculation, and incongruent notions of song structure. It’s droney and psychedelic and noisey and weird and awesome! I had to have a time-out in my apartment and re-calibrate my association with commonly held notions of “genre” and “taste.” Incredible (no hyperbole). And, yes, those drums are looped in Skyscrape My Shapes. Wasted, indeed!
