MO*TE -Throw a Stone CD “Mo*Te propels forward in the year 2021 with another full-length offering of morphed noise psychedelics on “Throw A Stone”. Guided by the dosed mind of Fumiyuki Nagura starting in the mid-90’s, Mo*Te operated in tandem with many other Japanese noise acts such as Government Alpha, Monde Bruits, T.A.D.M., Cracksteel, Outermost, Robochanman, etc.; acts that served equally important roles in forming the wide-reaching web of Japanese noise music, despite often remaining in the shadow of gods like Merzbow, Incapacitants, Masonna, and Hijokaidan. Like many other scenes of noise scattered throughout the world for the last forty years, Japanese noise has a unique sound and feeling that is ultimately unlike any of its other regional peers, and unsurprisingly, Mo*Te is a project that can not be imitated by anyone else. Two words that come to mind when I think of Mo*Te are “JUNK” and “DRUGS”, perhaps because looking through release titles and track names from his catalog will show that Nagura certainly has a proclivity for themes of damage, refuse, and a consciousness under the influence of mind-altering substances. Weaving together acid-soaked noise electronics, junk metal, delirious vocals and what sounds like field recordings from a densely-populated industrial megacity not too far into the future, Mo*Te takes curious listeners on a trip through dark and caustic alleyways, opening various doors along the way to reveal bizarre scenes of the subconscious; places where thoughts and things tossed away previously come together to create something new, strange, and stimulating.”

JULIUS MENARD – Separation CS Artist’s concept: “The main topic of this release are rituals that symbolize the transition of an individual or a group from one status to another, whether on a personal or social level. The concept was developed by Arnold Van Gennep in ‘Les Rite De Passage’, in which he explored the nature of ceremonies that mark personal or collective changes of identity.
Van Gennep identified three phases in these rites. First, the separation: when the individual or the group is distanced from their former identities; followed by liminality: the phase in between two conditions (the one from which the individual/group departs and the one which they will enter); and last, reaggregation (or incorporation): the final stage in which the individual/group is readmitted to society as bearer of new status.
It has less to do with the act of a ritual in detail and more to do with the transformation of the individual(s). One can interpret this topic on spiritual, political or socio-emotional levels.
This is the first of three tapes concentrating on the section of separation to define the isolation of an individual from their former peer group.”

UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIAL CONDITION – Limited Target Set CS “UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIAL CONDITION LIMITED TARGET SET ABSURD EXPOSITION
It would be impossible to talk about Matt Purse’s UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIAL CONDITION project without addressing the sheer voracious nature of the sounds. Swirling and intricate, also dense and full – pierced, cascading walls that want only to create a path of ruination.
SIDE A of LIMITED TARGET SET is pure aggression. Pain and absolution only leading to more pain. Anarchy on the verge of control and collapse, masterfully. Feedback that feels like its gone too far, piercing too deeply and unrestrained. Staccato stabs, legato walls. Action, destruction, fear, intimidation. Falling through layers of controlled precision, like falling through a hole laced with sharpened blades, bleeding a bit more at each pass until the inevitable.
Martial. From controlled to controlling. Authoritative and also completely reckless. SIDE B starts with a bayonet pointed at you, telling you exactly How. It. Is. Going. To. Fucking. Be. The uncontrolled nature of the previous piece has been brought into line, lock step, and is now being used like an artillery battery barrage. You won’t last. No you fucking won’t. Your body armor will be pierced, and you now realize you’ve been the target all along.”
Edition of 52 pro-dubbed burgundy tapes with standard j-cards housed in burgundy norelco cases.
