[mt128cs] Nystrand / Klein Bayou Stickee c-22
Dual hellfire studio collaboration recorded in Sweden from Nystrand (VMS Elit, Quack Quack, Heinz Hopf) and Klein (techno outlaw, here in psychedelic synth mode). Sharpened oscillators navigate the undercurrent of distortion and crumble. Sticky and chunky, like aural peanut brittle.

[mt127cs] Sunk Cost Altitude Sickness c-40
Sunk Cost is Johnathan Cash, a young man based in Denver, Colorado who knows his noise composition. Altitude Sickness is fourty non-stop minutes of intense stereo-panning, hyper-active jump cuts and perfectly-timed breakdowns, in the tradition of the Japanese and American post-treaty leaders, with nary a moment wasted. Features guest electronics from Richard Ramirez on one track.

[mt126cs] Ligature 245 Days in Hell c-20
NYC's Chris Hansell -- armed with the tools of AM radio, tape loops, field recordings, contact mic and synth -- presents twenty minutes of harrowing audio drama and collage wrought from a period of deep personal turmoil. Isolated, repurposed audio materials form a subtle melodic backdrop with layers of organic and complimentary electro-acoustics uncoiling into focused outbursts of overloaded, poised harsh sculpture before descending into concrete ruminations. No help in sight.

[mt125cs] Scant Estrangement c-24
Second tape for East Coast linchpin M. Boettke after 2015's 'Wake of Dissolution.' Two untitled tracks of smoldering and combustible iron roar; the A-side being an impeccable decoding of the center of an incinerator rising to full steam, while Side B proceeds into the crackling of heat embers burning out, eventually giving way to an undercurrent pulse of sub bass oscillation. Mastered by John Pyle.

[mt124cs] Fleeting Breath Unfiction c-20
A return to MT for Dillon Tulk, formerly known as Ferveur Noire. Concrete assemblages of modular and taped sources crafted over a four year period; varying from urgent and frenetic to calm, still and anxious, yet never desperate or cluttered. A fine work of controlled sound composition.

[mt122cd] Pedestrian Deposit Dyers' Hands CD
The ninth PD full-length album. In a reversal of tradition, the material was initially developed over the course of several live performances throughout Europe and the U.S. before entering the studio. Composed specifically for the CD format and recorded in stunning clarity, the result is a thrilling and dynamic listen; not only encompassing several genres of experimental music across five tracks, but also every phase of the group's history -- from active cut-up noise, to elements of neo-classical minimalism, to dark ambient soundscapes and everything in between, avoiding the sometimes temporary nature of such an approach.

[mt121cs] Vasculae New Orthodoxy c-34
The first completed material in over a year following a long battle with various creative blocks introduces a dark ambient element to the ongoing focus of placing harsh noise in different contextual environments. Voice recordings are filtered beyond recognition in the hope that their original intent transfers to the listener, while the overall compositional approach harkens back to the early years of PD's extreme dynamic contrast.

[mt120cs] Jackson-Pratt Semi-Good lookin' c-30
A potent blast of saturation and crunch, the second tape from this NYC-based project wastes no time in establishing itself -- hard panned stereo layers of junk metal intersect with consistently engaging, full spectrum textures from start to finish; clear as crystal, never thin or muddy. Paired with an equally engaging live performance, Jackson-Pratt is at the forefront of contemporary American Harsh Noise, and deserves your immediate attention.

[mt109cs] False Moniker In Parenthesis c-30
Known for his visual work, his label Audio. Visuals. Atmosphere., as well as his many collaborations with Cremation Lily, False Moniker is the project of Belgian artist Niels Geybels, who also works as Sequences. This is considered by the artist to be the debut full length release of FM. Six tracks of minimal and narrative industrial bedroom melodicism, intimately documented on 4-track cassette.

[mt100lp/cs] Pedestrian Deposit The Architector LP / c-40
The culmination of five years of obsessive work — fits and starts of ongoing perfectionism that spawned two solo projects and two additional records. Beginning with crude and unfamiliar source materials, each sound is examined from every possible angle, then taken apart and reconstructed along with the compositional process. From 2010 forward, each phase is represented; the past three U.S. tours have given clues, and these recordings offer more of the puzzle, but you will never get everything at once. To be experienced as foreground with no distractions.

[mt96cs] Vat A Pile Over There / Spoiled Milk Panties c-30
Previous Vat efforts have focused on the classic 'americanoise' approach of scrap metal through distortion overload. 'A Pile …' sees Chris Conroy merging elements of that aesthetic with ideas normally reserved for his other project, Lungwash. Layers of metal abuse and feedback are processed through gritty fuzz and hiss signals, gaining intensity throughout the duration of each side.

[mt93cs] Nephila Subcutaneous Memory c-20
Long awaited debut solo recordings from Shannon A. Kennedy (Pedestrian Deposit). Narrative compositions for zither, homemade string instruments and other surprises that evoke the spirits of surrealism, dark experimental music, and traditional asian instruments. Two pieces from 2009 and 2012; recommended listening under low light, a full moon, or in the woods. Special art edition forthcoming from Shannon directly.

[mt92cd] Rale I Sit By The Window And Watch Walls And Ceiling CD
Perhaps William Hutson's best achievement yet, an impeccable follow up to his excellent 'Some Kissed Charms …' LP for the Isounderscore label last year. Long form, expert-level sound collage, composed with the format in mind from improvisations recorded between 2007 - 2011 as a continuous piece in seven parts. Weaving together the aesthetics of minimalism, academia, and subterranean noise study with electro-acoustics and elements of dark soundtrack style synth work, the end result is rich and modern musique concrete with a heavy literary influence overhead. Essential.

[mt91cd] Vasculae Cultural Primitivism CD
Full circle. A new project from Jonathan Borges (Pedestrian Deposit, Everyday Loneliness, Emaciator, etc). After several years of operating in more subtle areas of experimental music, Vasculae is a return to form; sharp noise composition with emphasis on layering, texture, purity, and 'natural dynamics,' as opposed to the rapid-fire cut-ups of the past. Elements of wall noise, crackle, and 90's style raw blast are fused in these three tracks pulled from two years of intermittent 5-7 hour recording sessions. No melodic ambient interludes, no tape loops, no instruments -- only the sources of pure noise textures.

[mt78cd] Pedestrian Deposit East Fork / North Fork CD
Deluxe instant reissue of the much-too-limited edition Housecraft tape, including two new and previously unreleased tracks; 32 minutes of new music. Reflective of our live sets of the past year and a half. Residing in the netherworld between various genres, as usual.

[mt68cd] Pedestrian Deposit Austere CD
Five years in the making, and the first duo recordings -- a very, very calculated and controlled effort. Moving past the harsh noise cutups but not eschewing them entirely; rather, moving forward to areas of sound collage, music-concrete, field recording and electroacoustic. To be heard as one long piece. The progression continues.
