(Intransitive - INT036) Used CD $6.00

Mike Connelly (Wolf Eyes, Hair Police) evokes bleak electronic atmospheres, suffocating dread, and sinewy horror with a fine-tuned beauty embedded in its darkness. Connelly’s self-released cassettes and CDRs of rough drones, detuned improvised grit, blown-out burl, and unstable acoustics tend to vanish quickly; Intransitive’s CD, the first one widely available, is sure to become a defining statement. The single piece -- in five sections -- begins with disquieting, barren negative space, creeps forward, steadily dispenses sheets of diffuse throat-scratch and skittering strings, and culminates in a blast of molten organ.

True Form

(BloodLust! - B!094) 7-inch $8.25 (Out-of-stock)

The dark, distorted, droned-out organ playing of Mike Connely (Wolf Eyes, Hair Police) illustrates the collision between the contrasting styles of sound generated by the Lexington, Kentucky, and Detroit-area scenes. Somber and unsettling. Edition of 300 copies. White vinyl, unmarked white sleeves, black and white insert.
