K.K. Rampage / Metalux
(Rampage) split LP $16.00
Metalux continues their refinement of creepily serene noise arrangements and free-floating modern psychedelia. Voices are treated as another instrument in an amorphous wash of sound among atmospheric keys and harsh electronics. K.K. Rampage -- Chicago's confrontational, rabble-rousing, NO(w) wave misfits -- replace their piercingly, de-tuned Arab-on-Rabar-esque guitars and “pop” beats with sinister, mechanical chaos and throbbing spastic drumming. A truly fascinating album that improves with repeated listening. Limited to 400 copies.
(Rococo - RCC014) LP $13.50 (Out-of-stock)
After taking the noise rock world by storm with Sides E and F, KK Rampage are back with the sharper pop sensibilities of this one-sided twelve inch which balances relentless experimentation and polished pop imperfection. Fearless, imperceptible, switching gears between heaven and hell on the highway of death, this pop-damaged noise record is limited to 150 copies with full-color paste-on sleeves.
