Tortured radio signals fed and feedback induced machinations spill outward in echoed static waves. A schematic representation of a face, as electrical current becomes self-aware and struggles to communicate the terror of existence. Rolling hills of fuzz, haunted house drones and clamber, radar bleeps across stretched voltage. Ghost voices summoned in arcane electricity and underwater piano toward dirt covered choral, the resonating frequency of abused radio. Dynamic noise that veers toward harshness and pulls back to ambient gloom, One Way Voice Link is a portrait painted in broken radio motion.

Regularly releasing albums as a member of STEVEN PORTER for various international record labels, Sludge-Tapes presents Ducerey Ada Nexino, a solo album from the founder of the recent upstart Kyoto-based, 10 Label. Starting out with unexpected heavy, distorted guitar, this release moves from arhythmic tracks, like buildings crumbling in slow motion, to abstract interpretations of obsolete industrial techno. Unlike anything heard on other labels, this is a presentation of heterochromatic black-stepping techno.
If you’ve ever had the chance to travel, you know that it changes your life. After a year on the road, from the jordanian dunes to the asphalt of Nashville, Julien Magot locked himself in his appartement to record ‘Fue’, the first album of his lonely adventure Appalache. If you’ve ever had the chance to travel for a long-time, you know how hard it is to fight against monotony of a daily life. This is maybe the start of this story, a way to escape from the outside world’s oppression, a dream about a dream inside a dream, where flashbacks can be possible futures. More than a story, ‘Fue’ can be the painting of a luxuriant desert under the moonlight, maybe like the one on the Barn Owl’s Lost In The Glare cover. 8 songs for 8 colors, leaded by an electric guitar and indians spirits, both hunting for serenity…
Anthropological audiophiles feared that all forms of smouldered geometric sound magic had died away when Europeans reached far in to the desert wilderness of western America. Although this sand based kahuna was never officially outlawed, the decline of native culture saw many forms of sonic sorcery die out as the acoustic conjurers were unable to pass on their wisdom to new aural apprentices.
Originally released individually, Bible & Henry’s Marker and Magnet are two complimentary volumes in a set that covers quite a bit of ground, and covers it quite masterfully. The duo’s work here is mostly in the area of electroacoustic improvisation and musique concrète. Jeremy and Jason manage to utilize the tiny musical space they’ve allotted themselves and stretch it out to a length of over two hours. Typically I’d say this is an accident waiting to happen, but these fellows have pulled it off with class to spare. Never does anything sound recycled or looped, never is there a moment where the music returns to a point. It is always winnowing, sifting, threshing through waves of electronic abstractions and obscured acousmatic sounds. The result is a confounding experience in which I find myself searching for some familiarity and finding little. There are moments of potential clarity, but those are seldom and surprising when they arrive. The rest of these compositions are steeped in mystery and endless engagement. This is not background music; please listen with care.
