About two weeks ago, Paula Temple shared a song from her forthcoming EP Deathvox, and now she’s sharing another track, the second of three songs to be released. This one is the title track, and it jumps right in your face from the moment you press play. Deathvox will be released through R&S Records on October 28th.
Exactly a month ago I posted news about an EP by Paula Temple, but at the time I could only reveal the basic facts, no audio. With the release of Deathvox (R&S) on its way on October 28th, she and the label are sharing one of the three songs on it. This one is called “Ful”, which fills up Side 2. The press release calls it “a half-speed techno industrial explosion“. Does it make that impression on you? If so, you’ll have to wait to hear the other two songs. You can pre-order it by heading to R&S Records.
That’s it, that’s all I have. I’m sure R&S will have some audio for it very soon, and I’ll post it then but until that then comes around, head to her
Ryan George and Sara Taylor are the code you may need for their music duo, Youth Code, and you don’t have to wait for a delay of any sort. The group will be releasing an EP next month called A Place To Stand on the 23rd of next month through Dias Records, and they want to share what they’re offering, a mere hint of their goodness. It’s called “Consuming Guilt”, and they’re hoping the guilt you may consume from their sounds will be enough for you to retain you as a believer.
The vinyl pressing of A Place To Stand will be done in three different color variations, and can be pre-ordered right now by going here.
MC Throat could be one man, could be one band, could be an organization from somewhere in Wisconsin. It could be hip-hop, it could be distorted hip-hop, it could be chaotic, or we really don’t know what this could, could have, or couldn’t be. One thing I’ll tell you: this is one of the more adventurous EP’s I’ve heard recently, and that says something. It’s as trippy as it could be, should be and is, and everywhere it doesn’t go, it keeps on going. The release is called Blank Check’d and if you’re open minded to something minimal and extreme, get this. The cost for this is $666, but listening is free. Or feel free to buy it for $666, not sure what kind of prizes you’ll get for it but hey, you can at least say you got yourself a chance to hear and buy MC Throat.
Puce Mary is someone who doesn’t care about genre clarification. She may be considered one style or the other but she will go out of her way to create something else. Or not care about what anyone says. Her work may be industrial, experimental, avant-garde, or something else someone is ready to tag her with, but it’s very much out and in there at the same time. Her new album is called Persona (Posh Isolation), which you could say very much represents not only her as a person, but her music being a persona in and of itself. “Courses” could be something you’d hear in a museum or exhibit or the final piece you might not want to hear before you die, but that’s the beauty in work like this. Puce Mary may not be for everyone, but she isn’t looking specifically for everyone to begin with. The vinyl-only album can be ordered directly from PoshIsolation.net.
If the phrase “minimal industrial/wave” is opening up your eyes, ears, and pores, prepare yourself for Pure Ground. They are a Los Angeles duo who started two years ago, they’ve released two cassette EP’s, both of which have been remastered and will be collectively found on the album The Daylight & Protection. You can stream it in full below via Bandcamp. Not only do they support audio cassettes, but they release VHS tapes as well. An excerpt from it can be watched below as well.
They’ll be in Europe next month for a tour, they’d love for you to see and hear them, and say hello.

If your tastes in music is more on the extreme side of things, you’ll want to check out Regno by Krueleco, described as “30 minutes of black harsh noise”. As you’ll hear by the 3.25 minute excerpt above, things go back and forth from utter chaos to insane noise, industrial death to indescribable lunacy, and it’s hard to tell where one pieces ends and another begins. Then again, these are just excerpts.
If you are interested in picking this up, it’s only available on cassette. Information can be had by e-mailing krueleco [at] mail [dot] com. You may listen to the first track on the tape in full, simple titled “Regno I”.
The artist simply goes by the name of RAWbug and for his new release he describes it as him using “non-sound files into Audacity as raw data files, then either keeping them or altering them in some fashion.” It sounds insane, and it is. The end result is 16 tracks of stuff that may be difficult to listen to, and yet there may be a dance track found within. Within the noise? Apparently yes. While available for free via Archive.org, he has pressed up 20 copies, each one burned onto a CD3 and packaged in a DVD case. Plain and easy, unlike the sounds found within. To take a listen, click the player below. CD’s will be $5ppd within the U.S., international postage rates will differ depending on country.

Drekka may have been a part of your musical consciousness since 1996, but now a new album will be released on February 25th, their first in nine years. Bloomington, Indiana’s maniac has Dais Records to thank for this release, and the vinyl pressing is now available for pre-order, directly from the label. Only 300 copies have been pressed, each one done with a silver-treated pantone jacket.
