AK020 – HOUSE WIND – Locusts Make Honey: Melodies for Prepared Guitar
A 16-track suite of altered, prepared, and shifted guitar tones evoking ‘familiar strangeness’, magic, and the ungovernable. Mirroring the aleatory spectrum of sounds heard in nature, these melodies also affect a temporal and cultural shift, suggesting kinship with older music traditions, particularly non-Western ones, like Gamelan and Japanese shamisen and koto. Locusts Make Honey pulses, buzzes, and enlightens.
Limited cassette run of 70 out June 1st. Come catch a live performance and pick up a copy at the Toast Collective Sat June 1st.
Kamikaze Nurse’s 10-song debut, Bucky Fleur, is an epic win from start to finish. Swirling, sparkling, and swerving guitars, a virtuosic rhythm section, and poetically sensorial vocals all add up to a whole that can only be described as indescribable. Just when you’ve tamed the vibe, it shifts into a brand new way. With reference points of My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, and the Pixies, they aim high, and have created a rock masterpiece.
A limited cassette run of 50 will be available Sunday June 9th, at Music Waste, and here~!
