(limited to 100) documents the first release on vinyl for Long Beach based KDM (Kevin McEleney) and Los Angeles/Long Beach based Nial Morgan. Both well known for their phenomenally original approaches to noise composition and live performance; this Oxen release of new tracks showcases the potent combination of symmetrical equanimity and malice on ‘Mutual Transgressions’ and ‘Solitary Source’.
Wrong Hole: Nial Morgan, slashing paths through forests of electro-tape destructive territory with sleep deprived swagger, his compositional prowess is on rare and inspiring form throughout Mutual Transgressions’ specifically obtuse personal narrative.
Constrain: Solitary Solace, exceeding the expectations of his always brilliant razor burst cut-up noise infamy, here he expertly delivers a punishing scything. The track deftly ladders to a crushing apex, explodes all the listener’s cognizance before submitting to KDM’s sonic design certainty and returns rattled consciousness ending 5 minutes and 21 seconds of sublime cacophony.
