FFFreakout: Podcast #4

Infinite Body "Between You Can Crawl Like This is the End" Bored Fortress 7" Club (Not Not Fun)
High Wolf "Boneless" Bored Fortress 7" Club (Not Not Fun)
Rambutan "Ordinary Vertigo" Erasing the Past 7" (Tape Drift)

The Fuckin' Flyin' A-Heads "Swiss Cheese Back" Swiss Cheese Back 7" (De Stijl)
Skoal Kodiak "Cruel Tic" Cold As Fuck LP compilation (Insides Music)
Sunken "The Evidence" New Zealand Eels LP (Emerald Cocoon)
Locrian "Omega Vapors" Dissolvers split LP w/ Century Plants (Tape Drift)

Spun the first vinyl offerings from Eric Hardiman's consistently great Tape Drift label. The first was a limited 7" lathe from his own Rambutan project which Byron Coley recently covered in his "Size Matters" column in The Wire (#321) stating:

"Erasing the Past . . . mixes stillness and clatter in equal measures. On the A side, a small drone figure repeats while everything else crumbles slowly onto your shoulders, making an embarrassingly big pile of mock-dandruff. On the flip, Hardiman goes for a steampunk drone that really clanks the old iron, as they say."

The second is a split 12" with his duo Century Plants and the mighty Locrian from Chicago, who have been on an absolute tear this year. Check out the Small Doses website for more on their output and activity.

FFFreakout: Podcast #3

The Woolen Men "Boomerang" Sunday CS (Eggy)
Lee Noble "Terror High" Creeping Death Fever CD-R (La Station Radar)
Nite Jewel "The Kamera Song" You Colla The Colour of Mounds CS (Alberts Basement)
The Polyps "Twenty Colored Circle Pt. 1" Twenty Colored Circle CS (Eggy)
Wild Classical Music Ensemble "Dragon draak" Musik Oblik: Music in the Margins 2 CD (Sub Rosa)
Big Blood "Lay Your Head On the Rails (and Comeback)" 3"CD Peasant Magik boxset (Peasant Magik)
Natural Snow Buildings "Curse of the Devil" 3"CD Peasant Magik boxset (Peasant Magik)
Silver Bullets "Farlo Respirane, Cosi" Citta Invisibiii CS (Stunned)

Broke out some things from a new stash that arrived from the very fine Eggy Tapes and Mailorder out of Portland. The Woolen Men cassette contains some highly addictive scruffy pop gems and, while I've just about reached my threshold level for extended synth jammers, this Polyps tape offers a rather refreshing take on the whole synth/electronics bit. Also, dug into the excellent 3" CD box set that Peasant Magik released awhile back to mark their 100th release. Peasant Magik have a massive batch of new tapes ready for order, which you can sample some of the sounds over at their website.
