    Necro Deathmort
    EP3

    DIST32 - 12" / digital download

    Necro Deathmort live up to their really clever moniker, laying down 6 tracks of trademark seismic DOOMSTEP and utterly bleak NOISEDRONEMETAL with EP3 - a regression to their earliest days when reputable style pundits Vice Magazine wrote: "one minute it's Squarepusher, the next it's Sunn O)))".  This is some dark occult shit, a fact reflected in the artwork which shows an almost naked girl holding a goat's skull, her face dripping with blood.   There may be runes behind her; we can't quite make them out, what with all the darkness.

    The record opens with 'Sedan', a face-melting mixture of a-Ha intensity and ferocious Kraftwerk-esque vocals.  How can a robot sound so pissed off and utterly misanthropic?  Only NDM know how.

    'Holy Prism' follows and we're treated to the blackest ever blackness, like a pair of skinny black jeans falling through a black hole and into the tip of a gigantic black Sharpie marker.  It's just that black.  This is like the soundtrack to some sci-fi horror shit, with Scarlett Johansen in knickers being chased through a spaceship by some kind of pig-demon with razor sharp teeth and a Southern Lord t-shirt on.  I'm scared just thinking about it.

    Then 'Quandary' kicks in and we're left fighting for our breath as the pummelling beats offer no respite and punch you repeatedly in the face with their tiny drumfists.  'The Regency' does little to soothe our shattered nerves, sounding like a bulldozer pushing a planet into the biggest 3-bar electric fire you've ever seen.  'Sparks' follows and pushes the darkness to '11', sounding like 'Rockit' by Herbie Hancock played by a church mouse in a Cylon helmet.  The album concludes with 'Tundra': without hyperbole, the most bleak and harrowing music ever put on vinyl by any human.  

    Some people may say the band has run out of ideas, which is utterly preposterous: to make this record they used totally different keyboard presets and used extensive Lovecraft references, something never done before by a band anywhere, ever.  Some may also say that the band have tired of writing press releases for their music, which is equally preposterous, as there is literally nothing more exciting than trying to describe your work to jaded music journalists.  Nothing at all.

    To reflect the utter darkness of this release, we've decided to forgo the usual 2-colour splatter vinyl and have them specially pressed on BLACK vinyl - these are going to be serious collectors’ items, so if you've been collecting vinyl since April, then one of these bad boys will really stand out in your collection.

    333 copies, 83 of which had fucked sleeves due to a devastating combination of a lack of quality control at the pressing plant and cack-handed courier people.  Artwork by Thomas Neulinger.

    For fans of:  cool electronic shit, random occult imagery, tight jeans, trends, fashion.

  • Field Music & Warm Digits
    BBC Radio 3 Late Junction Session

    DIST26 - 10" vinyl (1000 only) / digital download

    "It's exciting and quite scary to try and do something where you don't know what you're going to play before, there's no repetition, you try and base everything you play on either responding to what other people have played or trying to lead everybody else.  It's quite difficult, it's completely out of our comfort zone, but it's a good experience to try it." David Brewis

    When Warm Digits released their Keep Warm. . . with the Warm Digits album, it tickled BBC Radio 3 Late Junction's interest enough for them to invite them for a session.  Their sessions are unique, one-off collaborations between musicians and bands who haven't worked together before.  So in early December, they spent a day at BBC Maida Vale Studios with multi-instrumentalists Field Music.  Armed with an array of guitars, two drumkits and keyboards that were freshly plundered from the Maida Vale cupboards, they composed and recorded four completely new pieces of music together on the day, and these formed their session for Late Junction, originally broadcasted on 26th January 2012.

    You will, surely, all know Field Music: Sunderland's David and Peter Brewis from, who've released a chain of glorious, uniquely coiled and beguiling melodic pop albums over the last seven years with their latest, Plumb, being their best yet.  Marc Riley says they're currently the best band in the country, and that sounds about right to us.  Warm Digits are "krauttronic blizzardwave" duo Steve Jefferis and Andrew Hodson, who have had rave reviews from the likes of Andrew Weatherall for their astounding multi-sensory live performances, debut album, and remixes for UNKLEMaximo Park and Yeti Lane.

    The first track, Elements of the Sun, is based around how their debut album was made.  Built around an arpeggiated Moog bassline, the four jam over the top, "discovering" the song as it plays; it's reminiscent of Cluster remixing Fleetwood Mac.  Travelodge Blues is based around Igor Stravinsky's octotonic scale; a brooding melody is constantly retained throughout a metronomic structure, slowly becoming more manic, urgent and discordant, before drenching itself in intricate fuzz.  Snow Watch is the foursome's effort at creating a drumless track, keeping it as minimalistic as possible, but still retaining a harmonic hook, and leaving plenty of room for chance, as well as staying melodic throughout.  Higgs - untitled at the time of the session - is the most groove-based of the four tracks on offer.  Again, it originates from a synthesized bass loop, with an added dash of improvised melody and a double-drumkit rhythm section, rounding off a fantastic and varied session on this limited release.
