Altar Of Flies / Sewer Election
(Release The Bats - RTB31) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
Mean-spirited ugliness from a pair of fine Swedish bands. Sewer Election’s nasty “Rotten Corpse” is a crude and disgusting piece of monotonous, freezing coldness. Altar Of Flies buries claustrophobic lo-fi insanity dark within eerie forest rumblings. Straight from hell with heavy outbursts of feedback.
(Ideal - 104) LP $13.00 (Out-of-stock)
Two side-long pieces of static, beautiful, crude experimental electro-acoustic noise filled with amazing laidback anger and aggression. No hope, no love. Edition of 250.
(Release The Bats - RTB59) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)
Dan Johansson revisits the master tapes for this vinyl reissue of the cassette (Klorofyll Kassetter 2008), and extends the program to thirty-three minutes. Twisted decay and filth that replaces the harsh noise of early Sewer Election with more subtle and restrained soundscapes , without sacrificing the corrupting and creepy feeling of moral disease. Tape loops, metal junk, recorded using microphones and a tape deck to reduce the artifice and enhance the grit. Edition of 275. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST 0F 2010
(Järtecknet) LP $27.75 (Out-of-stock)
A delicate and puzzling experience, where chilling oscillating drones and field recordings intricately mix. Liner notes by Matthias Andersson. Edition of 350.
(Pan - PAN7) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)
Vidöppna Sår is the next step in the evolution in scum-brow field recordings and voice recorded to mono tape. Akin to OU revue recorded on a building site, this record documents Sewer Election's development, as witnessed from recent live performances, of aggressive blur build up and ominous restraint, tape speed replacing effect pedals, going beyond the mere "junk noise" description closer to the original idea of musique concrete, namely altering everyday sounds onto tape into a wholly other vocabulary that runs pure power and energy through subtle and restrained soundscapes of a world falling to pieces. Discomfort-and-filth aficionado Dan Johansson, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is most known for extreme and nasty noise on iDEAL, Troniks, Chondritic Sound, Release the Bats!, Freak Animal, Segerhuva, Gameboy and others. He is a member of Swedish collective Utmarken and lo-fi group Ättestupa. Edition of 330, 140g vinyl. Black-and-white jacket in a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs.
