HIVE MIND

Beneath Triangle And Crescent

(Chondritic Sound - CH-271) LP $15.00

Recorded under the crushing presence of opiates, Hive Mind’s earliest forays into both melody and industrial rhythmic elements drag, thud and shiver with a distinct energy inspired by 90s German and French heavy electronics like Dagda Mor, Inade, Derniere Volonte and Les Joyaux de la Princesse. Auto-melodic tones pair with crude, hand-hammered slews of notes while Greh Holger’s trademark synth-drone rumbles beneath like a kept beast. Each piece progresses to nastier and darker territory, erupting and collapsing at the end of the title track. Previously release by Fag Tapes in 2008. Edition of 400

CARLOS GIFFONI / HIVE MIND

Claustrophobic Wreck

(Ultra Eczema - UE75) LP $28.00 (Out-of-stock)

In a small wooden cabin between New York and Detroit, without food, the tap water nonpotable, the eating of one another's intestines the final enjoyable possibility -- these are the conditions surrounding the thick throbbing of two synthesizers bubbling up from hungry bowels, fighting their way to better times. Dark, gnarly and industrial, classic heavy synth waves, rhythmic madness and electronic sadness. Collage sleeve by Dennis Tyfus, 300 copies.
