Voltigeurs / Dark Bargain
(Turgid Animal) split 7-inch $8.75
The alter ego of Skullflower (Matthew Bower and Samantha Davies) rips dark psychedelic noise. On the flip, Newcastle-based trio (Jamie Stewart of Wrest, Lucy Johnson of Rife and Smut, and Mike Simpson of Xazazz) offer seven minutes of thunderous rhythms and harsh, distortion-laden and feedback-drenched noise rock. Edition of 300.
