LCNL 074: R_Puke’s Carboniferou [mix]

    Belgium-based noisemaker Raoul Puke (Be the Hammer) presents Carboniferou, a taut and moody mix that weaves together diverse styles into an immersive hour-long exploration.  I’m going to try to squeeze in quite a few of these mixes before

Watch Repair ~ The Polarities

The duo’s name says it all ~ Watch Repair sounds like loose copper wheels, backward-ticking hands and an old repairman tinkering in the gears.  The timely art (John Coulthart) returns The Polarities to the visual theme of debut Stopped Clock Chimes and its follow-up, Watch Repair, beginning

Deison ~ Any Time Now

October must be near, because our submissions are getting scarier.  Case in point: Any Time Now, a foreboding set whose dark drones are shadowed by sullen electronics, crime scene samples and rattling chains.  Even the most cheerful track title (“Blissfull Moments”)

Midori Hirano ~ Minor Planet

We’ve always had a weakness for Sonic Pieces’ hand-stitched covers, shown below in an image borrowed from Sounds of a Tired City.  Minor Planet contains an circle on the cloth cover to represent its title, but we’re simply going to call

NYOS ~ Nature

When I was a child, playing with a friend, my mother once exclaimed, “how can two people make so much noise?”  I had forgotten this question until I heard Finnish duo NYOS, the post-rock duo that sounds a quartet (although guitarist Tom
