Dead White
Holy Deprivation

Arbor 09


Great new set of savage guitar blunder from this floating Skaters associate, Andy Brack aka San Diego's Dead White. Primitively executed lead guitar damage that blasts through a mire of tectonic analog judder with a wall of amps style that is somewhere between The Dead C and Fushitsusha if they hadda cut a live to walkman tape for Xpressway back in the day before descending to some medieval dungeon lurk with occasional lone shots of phased electricity, Industrial bulldozing and macabre vocal injections ala Ferraro/Clark. Comes in a six colour fold-out poster sleeve silkscreened by Jelle Crama in an edition of 130 copies.

James Ferraro
On Air

Underwater Peoples Records No Cat


Deluxe vinyl edition of what was originally a self-released CD-R from James Ferraro complete with reworked and re-recorded material and specially commissioned airbrush artwork. On Air feels like a luminous update of Ferraro’s early Lamborghini Crystal sides, with the atmosphere of a shortwave broadcast from a parallel universe where arpeggiated synths function as transports to a future that feels like a lonely technicolour version of the past. Deep space morse code patterns orbit bursts of triumphal garage band guitar, simple euphoric melodies that feel like the soundtrack to your adolescence are re-imagined as a series of psychedelic instants, smears of DJ voiceovers are beamed straight from Venus... On Air is the perfect trip into Ferraro’s Multitopia. Also features an insane cover version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” which sits nicely alongside Mama Baer and Kommissar Hjuler’s version.  Titles include ‘Pleiadian Channel Surfer #1’, ‘Remote Control Under The Couch’ and ‘Heaven’s Bathroom’. Recommended.
