Boomkat Product Review:
Noisendo is a killer little label run out of Lisbon by Marcio, who’s perhaps best known for those striking, hand-painted Príncipe jackets housing 12”s by Nidia Minaj and DJ Marfox et al.
However, as you might be able to tell, Noisendo is another beast entirely, previously exploring the artist’s taste for bloodied and extreme sonics over a series of CDrs from Dave Phillips and Jim Haynes a.o, and now with its first cassette release, courtesy of Norwegian metal/psych/noise lord, Lasse Marhaug.
The A-side’s Future Architects Will Disembowel Us was first recorded in 2007, and here presented in a new, 2015 mix yielding 20 minutes of claw handed guitar riffage smothered in torrid, animalistic tape noise and acousmatic detritus. For a sturdy comparison, it sounds something like Stephen O’Malley recording during the era covered in When’s Black Death classic.
However, the other side’s Det Myke Landskapet was recorded new in 2015 and, if we’re not mistaken, makes use of a prepared piano (or some detuned metallic string instrument at least), Reinhold Friedl-style, to create a queasy AF vortex of resonant, chaotic string pitches against a wall of stony faced drone.
Proper, mashed potato head here. Tipped for the nasty pasties.
