Dispatches from the Underground // September 8, 2022

New Music

VA – Sea Creatures Stared at Us and We Stared Back at Them (Wilbur & Moore Records) (h/t Totally Real! Records)

Deathprod – Sow Your Gold In The White Foliated Earth (Smalltown Supersound) / immense new album from Deathprod, playing Harry Partch’s rare metal & glass instruments on a ritualistic set of queered recordings that sound unlike anything you’ll have heard before. Fearless, brilliantly original x deviant madness on the AOTY top tierBoomkat (h/t NZVZN)

Time Rival – Mimos (Triplicate Records)

CC Sorensen – Phantom Rooms (mappa) / A house is something that is so deeply temporary, yet it can hold so much energy. How do we carry or leave behind those energies while transitioning into new spaces? How does each space we occupy for some time shape us and how do we tear ourselves away from it and its influence once it’s time to go? These are some of the core questions behind CC Sorensen’s new album for mappa, ‘Phantom Rooms’ – it’s a record about movement, change, transformation, family, juxtapositions… but most of all, home.

Sculpture – Malculus / Photo Synth / Sculpture retrieve a new visionsonic visitation from the monochrome zone. Acid noise on a baroque kosmiche pavilion, with unstable data blat of wires, worm(hole)s, science, bullshit and ritual. The Malculus broadcasts a message that we are attempting to translate. Safety seals are holding for now.

Peaking Colors – Interdimensionalized / aka Jeff Bartell
