New Releases



AE61: THE RITA - Her Shell, The Chute CS
Edition of 100 pad-printed tapes packaged with oversized screenprinted covers and 7x7" glossy insert.

All sounds sourced from working a Lange XT 130 LV (flex index ‘very stiff’, low volume) ski boot.

Fitting the shell of a ski boot for a woman (note the female specifics, not unlike ballerina pointe shoe fitting):

“...every boot made for a woman adds padding around the ankle and Achilles area, an accommodation for the fact that the female foot is proportionately lower volume in this area...”
“In women’s iterations, the area over the first cuneiform bone is domed, forming a natural haven for this common protuberance in the female mid-foot. This isn’t such an easy area for a bootfitter to modify and as noted above, there’s only one lower shell made from scratch for a woman and this isn’t an area touched by its adaptation.”
“If the increase in heel height is effected inside the boot, it will have the multiple benefits of raising the calf slightly out of the boot, increasing leverage over the tongue and raising the ankle relative to the cuff pivot, all of which help the woman achieve a comfortable, balanced athletic position.”

Tragedy strikes when two women ski a Chute in Montana:

“Two women had hiked in from Fairy Lake to ski the Great One Couloir. The second skier ran into difficulty and fell during the run, resulting in traumatic injuries. The first woman called 911 and initiated CPR. Unfortunately, due to the severity of injuries, lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. Search and Rescue volunteers were able to reach the scene by helicopter and both women were transported to a nearby landing zone. The deceased woman has been identified as Caroline Lupori, a Bozeman resident originally from Colorado.”

A woman’s corpse, nights on the mountain:

“Mrufka Wolf had badly frostbitten fingers. Whether she made a mistake on the change-over on the fixed ropes and fell-off, or collapsed and died of exhaustion, or tried to descend without clipping the Sticht plate onto the ropes was a matter for futile conjecture. So Mrufka, after surviving the ordeal of Camp 4, became the fifth and last victim of the storm, and the thirteenth on K2 in a single summer.”
 


AE62: MOT & VIOLENT SHOGUN - Mangle CS

Edition of 100 tapes pro-dubbed in real time. Risographed covers and inserts housed in hard-plastic double-tape cases complete with anti-tapes dipped and/or brushed with gold paint.
 
Mot and Violent Shogun return to Absurd Exposition with more hissing dirges assembled from tape misuse, ruined loop manipulation and analog murk. Alongside their own tracks each artist "mangles" source material from the other in depressive, destructive fits.


AE67: MISERY ENGINE / ANDREW NOLAN CS
Edition of 60 tapes pro-dubbed in real time, housed in metallic tins complete with button set and insert.
Artwork by Jonathan Bergen.

"A perfect pairing of two of North America's kings of heavy electronics.

Misery Engine's side is an incredibly diverse showing of his brand of Power Electronics and Industrial. Beginning with what sounds like being left for dead in an industrial complex of sorts, ME takes you deeper and deeper into the depths of the experimental electronic world he's created. A sinister mixture of field recordings, synths, harsh noise, etc. all while perfectly avoiding all of the stereotypes we've come to expect from the genre.

Andrew Nolan's side explores a rugged hip hop/Scorn/heavy electronics approach that's utterly soaked in thick synth lines and distorted drum hits. Each track unique, powerful and perfectly assembled with the utmost attention to detail. A perfect mood to accompany you on a nice stroll through some rough places."

- Mackenzie Chami (God Is War, Terror Cell Unit, Koufar)
