Quick note about the upcoming Record Store Day (4/21/12) – we’ll be opening early (at 9AM this year) and we’ll have the full list posted the day before (if I can possibly do it earlier I will, but things probably won’t show up until the last minute).  Some releases have already been delayed and a few have been cancelled – that information can be found on the Record Store Day website.

Carter Tutti Void Transverse CD/LP

(Mute)(Buy Online From RSR)
This is a live album without live album trappings (no crowd noise, etc. – taken straight from the sound mix essentially). It’s got the Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti pair (of Throbbing Gristle and their own dealings) and Nik Void (Factory Floor). I was not at the Short Circuit Festival where this was recorded, but I imagine it was even more hypnotic and mesmerizing there and I long to play this at very high volumes so I can try to mock that experience as best I can. The whole thing flows seemlessly and when it ends it feels abrupt (though it is not) to be pushed back into the waking world (or maybe just stare at the cover until you press play again).

Neptune msg rcvd CD/LP

(Northern Spy)(Buy Online From RSR)
It’s fascinating how musicians can exemplify their sound through the construction of their instruments: for example, classical performers lean toward exquisite designs. Boston’s Neptune represents noise rock’s jagged, rough elements excellently with instruments literally constructed from scrap metal (for example, not many music stores sell amplified gas cans or metal buckets.) The result is a very unconventional, dramatic vocal-laced sound right the beginning with the endlessly piercing build-up of “Luminous Skull.” It’s followed by the cold, nightmarish “Dark Report,” which is loaded with sharp guitars reminiscent of no wave and abrupt blasts of radio static. Another highlight is the eerily atmospheric “Negative Reversal,” complete with the same brand of bizarre poetry found in the earlier tracks (“let’s lift the curtain up / see how he operates / he’s made of medicine / an anesthetic.”) The most “accessible” track would be “Rpr,” with more traditional-sounding noise-rock patterns that wouldn’t sound out of place alongside acts like Sonic Youth and Boredoms. For the most part, though, it’s a very avant-garde journey for those who love challenging music.

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan YT//ST CD/LP

(Psychic Handshake)(Buy Online From RSR)
To put it in the most basic terms, this record comes from an experimental Montreal collective that includes members of Japanese-Scottish (Ruby Kato Attwood) and Chinese-Irish (Alaska B) descent. Their culture-mixing origins translate to their self-categorized “noh-wave” sound (that’s no typo – it refers to Japan’s Noh theater.) They manage to fuse elements from an impressive list of both Eastern and Western genres, including progressive rock, metal, psychedelia, noise, folk, opera and even pop. I was weary about seeing such a broad list, but I was very impressed with how they managed to pull it off in a truly one-of-a-kind rock opera.  I’d love to see the whole thing put to visuals, because it really does sound like an interesting epic. “Reverse Crystal // Murder of a Spider” is an easy choice of a favorite with its fuzzed-out guitar-fueled sound perfect for ascending a mountain. Another standout is “A Star Over Pureland,” which features red-hot Lightning Bolt-comparable shredding. It’s not all about heaviness, though: “Oak of Guernica” relies on gorgeous, mystical dream-pop ambience and “Hoshi Neko” utilizes passionate Japanese vocals, a driving beat and a hypnotic synth hook that all build to a shimmering climax before fading into a cloud of sound.
