Fecal Vomit - Rectal Invaders

Chaotic, off-kilter, unpredictable -- this is everything you'd expect from a project called Fecal Vomit.

Based out of Serbia, Fecal Vomit offers up a harsh noise in constant motion, with disorienting hard-panning and distressed tones that burrow, squirm, and completely discard the idea of equilibrium.



Tape available now for pre-order. Ships around July 30. Hand numbered and home made, comes with digital download. Limited to 25 copies, 20 in translucent green cases, and 5 in red-backed Norelco boxes.

Clawing / Offerbeest - Split

Two of the finest practitioners of unsettling and enveloping audioscapes team here for varied takes on drone, noise, and sonic wrangling. Alabama's Clawing is a collaboration between the prolific trio of Jeff McLeod (Gezoleen, Saragashum, Bert) Austin Gaines (Calques, Hadals, Japanese Women), and poet / spoken word artist Matt Finney (It Only Gets Worse). Their work here is an expansion on the ghostly world conjured on their masterful debut, "Spectral Estate," with an unsettling aura that rests atop a current of anxiety and contemplation.

Offerbeest is one of the many guises for Dutch artist Maurice de Jong, perhaps best known for his work in the twisted black metal / experimental terror that is Gnaw Their Tongues. With Offerbeest, Maurice relies on analog synths to conjure bleak passages through demon haunts.


Limited to 100 copies, pro-dubbed with digital download included.

Preorder here. Ships around June 1.

Red Boiling Springs - Paternal


Red Boiling Springs is my personal project, and Paternal is a document meant to retrace the events of the night my daughter was born. A medical emergency during labor put her life at risk, so these sounds are an attempt to cycle through the anticipation, anxiety, panic, and relief of that night. Aside from some vocals at the end, all of the sounds manipulated on this tape are of my daughter in womb, captured using a fetal doppler monitor.



Limited to 25 copies. Comes with digital download.
