TWO NEW CASSETTES OUT NOW ON DEATHBOMB ARC!
FAIRHORNS ‘Satan Replicant’ cassettte
order here | listen here
Matt Loveridge is a secret weapon. Recruited by Geoff Barrow (Portishead) as a founding member of both Beak> and Anika’s original backing band, and most recently brought in as a 5th member of the drum corp, Foot Village. Matt’s completely uninhibited performance style, combined with his truly savant level musicianship, has brought huge waves of creative renewal to the work of others. He has that unnamable spark. So when Matt goes rogue as Fairhorns, it is, as they say, “On another level.”
With the latest Fairhorn album, ‘Satan Replicant’ (cassette on Deathbomb Arc this May), this is no exception. The follow-up to 2012’s ‘Doki Doki Run’ (on Invada), Matt dives in two directions at once. Deep, gritty, subterranean burners that also soar high above thanks to some truly (gasp) late 90s emo inspired vocal hooks. On “Nodens”, a staple of the Fairhorns live shows, a beautiful bit-crunched melody is given over to a sludge metal relentless repetition. While Matt’s work in Beak> shows its krautrock cards clearly, this sort of influence creates a more mysterious sound here. These are not genre exercises. This is Matt Loveridges unique statement to the world after many years of helping others with their own.
Fairhorns has performed at All Tomorrows Parties in London, Mo’Fo’ Fest in Paris, and toured much of the UK and Europe.
TURBINE ‘Lherbuchsuite’ cassette
order here | listen here
Last year, the 90s Bay Area experimental rock act, rRope, saw their entire discography reissued. An effort that took them from obscurity to praise in everywhere from Pitchfork to WIRE. That is the past though. For the last two decades, rRope’s lead guitarist, Scott Thiessen, and David Barrett of the band VNC, have been tending to a garden of electronics and noise guitar known as Turbine. Their debut 12”, ‘Thanks Karen’ was the first release on Deathbomb Arc back in 2000. Since then, Turbine has remained fairly private with their intimate, romantic sounds. This new cassette, recorded in the summer of 2012, is a rare chance to hear some of the incredibly beautiful sounds being created by Turbine at their Brick Factory studio. Featuring Brian Kinsman (Foot Village, True Neutral) and Ricky Wayne Garrett (Inferno of Joy) on dueling drums, these special tracks have been picked just for you.
Recorded by Scott Thiessen & David Barrett. Mastered by Weasel Walter.
Plus we have a special deal being offered. You can grab both of these cassettes, plus the Yola Fatoush and Alphabets cassettes we put out last year, for nearly a 50% discount.
