12/14/20: International Postage Rate Increase

Unfortunately international postage rates are increasing next week and it is not a small jump. These changes affect all customers except those located in Canada and the USA, which have no changes at this time.

The new rates are still competitive overall (especially when compared to USPS) and most packages can have tracking included at little to no extra cost.

Below is the breakdown with the cheapest options going forward.

Thanks for your understanding, the ultra-cheap rates were fun while they lasted. Please note that if you wish to take advantage of the discontinued rates while you still can you must have your order placed by 11:59PM on Thursday, December 17th.

12/6/20: Final AE releases of 2020 + New Arrivals from Arkeen, BISAD, Dead Gods, Helen Scarsdale, No Rent, Phage, Public Bath, Throne Heap, Torn Light


AXIOM CS
The debut tape from AXIOM – a new Montreal duo taking sound and compositional cues from early 1980s noise (when it was still more broadly classified under the “industrial” banner). The release is structured as one side-long composition that gives itself room enough only to explore the dungeon it occupies. Swirling electronics begin to appear as the tape progresses, but there is never a hint of anything psychedelic. The sounds of samples and other components weave in and out as if coming and going with the tide. Vocals are used as another sound source, rather than for delivery of any sort of lyric, and there is a haunting presence lurking throughout that is reminiscent of Prurient (or perhaps the ’80s progenitors that lent their influence). It’s dark in this dungeon. Take as needed.

Edition of 50 pro-dubbed black tapes with one-sided paper labels. The same program repeats on both sides. AE49.


PHOCOMELUS – No Humans Involved CS
A harsh noise construct of piercing form from PHOCOMELUS – the harshest moniker of Patrick O’Neil (Skin Crime, Self Abuse Records).

This is no-frills punishment. A complete lack of basic human decency or civility.

Edition of 104 pro-dubbed burgundy tapes with pad-printed labels. The first 100 copies include download code. AE50.

Digital versions available at absurdexposition.bandcamp.com

Mail seems to be bogging down as the holiday rush begins, not much showed up this week. Anticipating several packages to arrive next week, however.

11/15/20: A FAIL ASSOCIATION “East. V” CS out now + New Arrivals from Foul Prey, Gilgongo, Hanson, Helicopter, Makade Star, Modern Decadence, New Forces, Tordon Ljud

AE51: A FAIL ASSOCIATION – East V. CS

Engines sputter and spit, hot electric wires are dragged across oil-soaked asphalt, the five-band radio emits blistering pulses of static and the road home is the same as it’s always been. Unsolicited photos unlocking clandestine meetings in the dark hours – one more notch in the belt of the day to day.

“East V.” is a spastic C10 of pure American cut-up harsh noise from the mind behind the formidable Dada Drumming label imprint.

Recorded, mixed & mastered August 2020 @ Unpleasant Audio

Edition of 102 housed in plastic bags with 4×6″ double-sided insert. Includes download code.

Digital version at absurdexposition.bandcamp.com

Note: AXIOM and PHOCOMELUS tapes are just around the corner if you’d rather wait to combine shipping on all 3 new AE titles.
