Review Reblog – Moor Mother x Mental Jewelry – Crime Waves (Don Giovanni)

Moor Mother – An artist in ascendance who is not afraid to tell it as it is.
” File with Clipping as fellow noise-rap geniuses; both making some of the most dense and exciting music currently being released.”

Ears For Eyes

a0013465926_10Moor Mother follows her amazing 2016 album, ‘Fetish Bones‘, a collection of home-recorded protest songs that are as fierce as they are strange, testaments to troubling time, with this, her second release on the Don Giovanni label. ‘Crime Waves‘ is a collaboration with producers Mental Jewelry. Continuing with the subject matter of ‘Fetish Bones’: racism and police violence, ‘Crime Waves’ packs an avalanche of sound and words into its shorter EP-length duration.

Coiling bass and echoing sonar-ping beats erupt from opening track, ‘Hardware’, Moor Mother repeating “is anybody out there?;” police brutality, blood and taser guns described with a pixelated noise-eroded voice. The vocal delivery is anguished and desperate: “how dare I exist?”; the music is an uneasy combination of sick-step rhythms, queasily pitching sound-levels and industro-scrape atmospherics bouncing off a brick-wall background. ‘Death Booming’ is a woozy low-key nightmare; low, slow and sparse; claustrophobic can-clack…

Review Reblog – Furchick – Postcards from the Antipodes

Finally, reblogging this review and ICYMI.
Wonderful sonic postcards that demonstrate “field recordings are worth the exploration as Furchick shows”

Yeah I Know It Sucks


Artist: Furchick
Title: Postcards from the Antipodes
Keywords: experimental furchick avant-garde field recordingsPerth
Label: Dog Park
Reviewer: Audio Hater

I remember once reading a negative review on a humble and honest blog named ‘yeah I know it sucks’ for a release done by a field recording artist who recorded all these city courtyards. It resulted in the artist writing a angry email why it was presumed boring, which of course nobody in our humble office had the will to reply; after all the audio on the album spoke for itself.

Courtyards in the city, some children playing, a bit of sunshine and all of the tracks could be only separated from the track title that corresponded to the place the track was recorded; these courtyards might have been beautiful in real life, a great walk for the recording artist himself but the actual audio recordings had been frankly boring and…

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Imagine a piano on the beach, being played by a person with the urge to sing a song that sounds a bit like ‘holy night, silent night’ in a way as if the voice was a humming violin.  It’s a tiny bit odd as you can imagine that the little waves of the sea are softly splashing against the piano and slip back against the toes of the musician that is responsible for it. Nonetheless this is a bit what the first track seems to sketch in the mind. The piano music is very nice and fits quite nicely with the little waves and the soft beach background sounds; as if it is complimenting the scenery with every note of the key.

Than the weather seems to change…

ICYMI Review – Luna Arakawa – Ocean of tears called sky

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Luna Arakawa

Ocean of tears called sky is an emotional melodic playful work that sounds light in sound, yet feels heavy in the heart. It’s perfect to hear when in the mood for a tear, or a couple of them. Listening in the darkness with a dim light without distraction and blur your mind out in this work of melody and experimentation.

It comes seemingly in little pretty chapters with strange squeaky sounds in the middle, lifting up the mood for it not to become too heavy to carry upon the listeners’ shoulders. But when the last chapter arrives, the music gets vibrant in flow and somehow it also touches me in a emotion that sets indeed a action…
