LUCAS ABELA / NOEL MEEK

Benny Does Jets

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.369) CDR $8.00

A sound agitation hoedown between the Australian wonder scruff (all sweat, blood and beers performing on glass) and Zealand’s best-trimmed beard (four years running) on electronics and voice. Recorded live at the Tempe Jets rugby club at the edge of Sydney International Airport. Visceral electronic fart tones stomp a happy jig and attempt to crack that code you have floating in your skull. Numbered edition of 60

Living In The Time Of The Golden Circle

(End Of The Alphabet - EAR012) Cassette $6.00

Seemingly concocted by a mad scientist, Living In The Time Of The Golden Circle brews up chemical cocktails using loopers, fuzz pedals, small keyboards and assorted electronics. On “Spinning In Sand” a pair of fuzzed out Casio-harpsichord tracks duels over various glitchy noises and burning organ drones. On the nine-minute “Save Petrol, Burn Cars,” distant submerged bangings and luminescent keyboards fuzzily glide between a handful of notes. An inviting collection of mini noise ragas. C35

NOEL MEEK

Southern Bleach

(Was Ist Das - WAS33) Cassette $6.00

Blown-out sounds inspired by a long sunny afternoon talking mysticism and music with Cameron Stallones of Sun Araw in a beautiful Japanese garden in Los Angeles. C38

The Mysteries of Extremophilic Folk

(Knotwilg - KW01) LP (lathe cut) $25.00

“Grating electronics, analogue bloops, and a total resignation to the gods of entropy” is the ruling handed down by The Wire. “Meek guides his set-up into uniquely strange moments of delightful disorder. Submerged major key synth melodies play vital roles throughout, weaving … between small vacant spaces amid the mania.” Cover by Indonesian tripper Wedhar Riyadi.

We Contain Multitudes

(God In The Music - GITM002) LP (lathe cut) $25.00

Ecological ecstasy music for worms and stars by the high priest of his own soil-based religion. Meek’s sunny and sprawling palette recalls classic immersive electronic works by synthesizer legends Terry Riley and Suzanne Ciani.
