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.

Hadals - The Dog

The experimental noise-mongers in Hadals have gone for something a little different on their latest offering. The Dog finds them dabbling in blistering hardcore, but without losing any of the adventurousness that's made their output essential.

Pro-dubbed tapes, limited to 50 copies. Preorders available now, with immediate digital download from Bandcamp. Tapes are expected to ship in mid-January.
