Been using my ears cognitively since 1983. Went through the 1990's taste-mangler and came out the other side of that with a 2 record-per-artist rule. With the myopia of complete-ism behind me, by 1997 my ears were fully re-aligned to the tonotopic map. Fortunately, I was alive and hearing during the technological shift that was occurring through the early 80's, 90's and just past 2005 when it was time for many sound organizing activists to review the past again.

A software developer by choice, a former artist and a dabbling producer: I enjoy Techno*, authentic Industrial**, non-digital Noise and slouchy stoner Rock to name but a few territories of our ontological strata. * I consider 'Techno' to be a broad term relating to all sound organizing that is achieved by use of electronic arrangement and sound generation to the end of exploring rhythm and its most distant inclines. **I consider 'Industrial' to be a matter of constructing "music" by process. I am not a "music-lover".

The digital release is the best here. The tracks 'January' and 'Drone Towel' are some highlights but the whole listen is good. New material by Defce is also interesting and has depth, good use of light and timbre. I think Ohm Resistance press release for ... See full review

This record is an excellent piece of work. An odd form of aggressive and reflective gloomy ambient with glints of light. The fragmentary thud of the driest, short decay bass and washes of deep base don't feel like ad-hoc technoid kit dabbling - they feel ... See full review

Actually, I was pleased with my copy. There was only a single plate where the warping reall showed but it did not sound. Some of these tracks sound bloody fantastic on vinyl. Great purchase.

I think this record belongs on Nathan Barley or in the mind of a Feminist. The first track is interesting but side 2 deep dives into some metro-sexual tripe that only diversity obsessed hipsters can imagine worth hearing.

I cant wait to get this one out ... See full review
