BÛCHER DOUBLE is a new French collective of total free-noise and experimental improv. The constituent line-up can be different from one release to another, as it is on this CDR from one track to another : some pieces are solo experiments, while the others present different combinations of several perpetrators, including members from bands like Valeskja Valcav, Prairie-Litière, YkG or Shinjuku Ni-Chome. The sonic array that is covered on "Veto" is quite large and varried, going from bizzarely beat-oriented industrial electronics to minimal noise eccentricities, through tape manipulations, some electric guitar ejections and placid drones, or even raw field recording (the last 16 minutes track of this release). Disc comes in a dvd case with pro-printed inlay and several graphic inserts.
cassette, limited to 50 copies Tracklisting : A. The Suffering Of Strangers [14:51] B. The Agony Of Friends [14:17]
Known as one of the masters of HNW, "Highway Of Tears" is a new release by the highly prolific alias of Serbian noise-maker Aleksandar Nenad. The sonic result is two slices of brutally thick and unforgiving static noise. DEAD BODY COLLECTION has experimented a lot with Noise Wall textures, and those two tracks here offer some smothering bass and noise strata of serious intensity.
Comes with j-card inlay and an insert, plus an extra cover picture of an eyes-crossed woman face, printed on tracing paper. There are five different versions of those tracing paper images, so 10 copies of each variation.

Tracklist : A. Rugged And Rough [22:53] B. Fast Paced Thrills [19:50]
Two highly-focused and well-crafted textures by the latest alias of Noise Wall activist Julien Skrobek. For the past few years, frenchman Skrobek has made himself some recognition in the static noise tumult with his numerous projects (GHOST, RUINE plus many others) and handful of labels, among which the now defunct Slow Death Records imprint. Material on this cassette here is based on "The Touch Of Her Flesh", a sexploitation movie from 1967. It was one of the first film to combine thrilling horror and graphic sex, and therefore in a way anticipated the Slasher genre. Each track opens with a sample from the film, before suddenly bursting to rough and sharp noise minimalism.
Black cassette, comes with pro-printed j-card and an extra one-fold insert.
cassette, limited to 50 copies Tracklist : A. RAVEN - Harshbringer [20:29] B. ASTRO - Kiyoshima Apartment [19:41]
RAVEN comes back to autistic campaign. This time, prolific Serbian noise-maker gets a split release with ASTRO, now a duet unit, originaly the project of japanoise veteran Hiroshi Hasegawa (former member of legendary act C.C.C.C.). Each project presents its own take on a jarring Harsh-Noise mix, head-on brutal static sound pollution for RAVEN, teeming with synth-like waves and noises in the case of ASTRO's track. Cassette comes with j-card inlay and three inserts, including two prints on tracing paper to be used as front cover, so you can just choose the one you like the most.
Here's a nice four-way split tape exploring a diverse range of Noise impulses. First artist is ANTISOCIAL BLOCK, aka from Marko Jovic, who is also known for his XTEMATIC experimental/industrial moniker (that also released an exclusive CDr earlier on Autistic Campaign). ANTISOCIAL BLOCK works with varied Noise-Wall material, slowly moving from very quiet dynamic to loud static noise slots. Next is S.B.R., from Bulgarian musician Nikolay Mitev, also founder of the underground label Abandonment, with a track between massive Harsh-Noise and full-on lo-fi HNW. Switching to side B, hostilities begin with FatOldFingers delivering some Power-Electronics made out of dirty bass frequencies and infested vocals in the distance, before H2óu̯ish1ék̂u̯ōs-kʷe takes over. H2óu̯ish1ék̂u̯ōs-kʷe is an unpronounceable title of productive musician Patrick Harsh from Detroit, US. Mostly known for founding RedSK, this rather new alias works with (in the noise-maker's own words) crazy cut-up of "glottalic noise/ejective harsh/shit collage/concrete punk" material. Be sure to check this intense noize-heads collection on tape.
Black cassette shell is spray-painted, and comes with a one-fold cover inlay of anice black&white collage artwork by S.B.R., plus a small j-card insert. Sound sample : Price (postpaid) : France : 5€ / Europe : 6€ / Anywhere else : 7€ Contact / Paypal : firstname.lastname@example.org
cassette, limited to 25 copies Tracklist : A. Sans [9:14] B. Ni [9:24]
Based in Rouen, France, TROU is the minimalistic noise project from the guy behing the Ciel Bleu Et Petits Oiseaux Records label. Through a collection of mostly self-released tapes, TROU has been delivering obsessive and absolute static buzzing drone works. The often unchanging and monolithic aspect of TROU's releases let one surmises that Harsh Noise Wall goes amongst the likes of the Frenchman, while the sonic material itself has more to do with monolithic synth waves. On this new tape here, TROU offers what can be considered as one track divided in two static sides, as the second track of the cassette, called "Ni", is a variated continuation of the first side and track "Sans".
Comes in black shell with colour j-card layout, and one insert. Cassette also has "Sans" and "Ni" hand carved on each corresponding side.
cassette, limited to 40 copies Tracklist : A1. LIGHT COLLAPSE - 1s0t3o0n8e5s6 [10:00] A2. LIGHT COLLAPSE - Movement Of The Higher Sphere [18:33] B. LOGICAL FIEND - The Unspeakable Lateness [29:39]
Russia/France split tape from two HNW projects. On side A, LIGHT COLLAPSE delivers two slices of dense and evocative static sound : one a thick entanglement of low-end noise layers ; the other a swarming and in a certain way watery piece that feels like capturing the sound of the bottom of a river, stones bumping into one another as a violent stream carries them (my own opinion of course, you tell me if you hear that too). LIGHT COLLAPSE is the main sound moniker of russian artist Vitaly Malkakov, who's also behind projects Obdozdur and Kromeshna, as well as great and fertile labels Torga Amun and Heart Shaped Box Prod. On side B, LOGICAL FIEND offers up an half-hour single track of slowly-changing Noise-Wall dynamics going from full-on harsh matter to more gritty and ambient textures.
Cassette comes in standard jewel case with one-fold full-colour sleeve art, plus an insert.

cassette, limited to 60 copies Tracklist : A. FT + TN [9:59] B. TN + FT [10:01]
Collaboration effort between Harsh Noise legend from Shangaï on one hand, and weird sound creature from the UK on the other one. Altogether, they deliver the 20 minutes uneven soundscape of an odd and banished radio stream, made of disturbed vocals and shit-fi noisy urges.
Comes with an oversized artwork folded to a j-card, while material is dubbed on chrome tape in nice-looking, translucid red cassette shells. Sound sample : Price (postpaid) : France : 4€ / Europe : 5€ / Anywhere else : 6€ Contact / Paypal : firstname.lastname@example.org
AC32_ THE SLEEPING QUARTER / CARRIE "Lana / You're All I Ever Wanted"
CDr, limited to 40 copies Tracklist : 1. THE SLEEPING QUARTER - Lana [31:22] 2. CARRIE - You're All I Ever Wanted [16:37] 3.CARRIE - I'm Tired Of Spending All My Time Alone [16:20] 4.CARRIE - You're All I Ever Wanted (Eternally Hollow Remix by Cory Strand) [12:05]
Two projects from the U.K., offering subtle, crackly & focused, female singer-themed noise-wall !
First, there's THE SLEEPING QUARTER returning to autistic campaign. For this split CDr, he created a piece dedicated to popular American singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey. The track begins, and you can hear the distant noisy ghost of a Del Rey's song turning at some point to a powerful yet sharp mass of sizzles and saturated hiss.
Then you have CARRIE, aka James Killick (LOVE KATY, SMALL HOURS, Vagary Recors). With this one moniker, Killick puts together nice HNW serenades for U.S. singer/actress miss Carrie Underwood,
The last track of this release is one of CARRIE's track remixed/reworked by Cory Strand, sonic artist from the U.S., who's also known as the currator of the great label Altar Of Waste.
CDr comes in a DVD case with full-colour artwork, plus an info insert on thick paper and two extra / over-xeroxed pics of Del Rey and Underwood included in a ziplock bag.
