DZ Tapes


Susurrus is a 31 minute piece in two parts, composed of feedback, ground-loops and other various unintended ephemera endemic to electronic instruments and the recording process. Taken singly these defects are purposefully avoided but when joined a remarkable synthesis can sometimes be observed. From an almost imperceptable beginning it rises in complexity until elecrical arcs are almost visible...

An astute observer will recognize within the first seconds of the crackling drums that open A Candle in the Crown of the Dawn that this record is supercharged, blown out and stripped down. With the intensity of Black Mountain soaring over a splashing, hypnotic rhythm section, EYES bypass to the center, to a place beyond knowledge, beyond rock, where human batteries are charged by a Dionysus crystal, where the shimmering organs read your mind, and the sun and shadow voices dwell.

Filled with rainy day lament, sputtering drones, funked-up basslines, luscious analog synths, and arrhythmic drums, ANCIENT HISTORY does not fall comfortably among the labels of 'ambient', 'IDM', or 'noise-prog'. Seemingly never slowing the car to turn, Ganjatronics make gestural shifts that range from new age synthscapes to piercing feedback and even occasional sing-song night club crooning. Also available as a limited edition CDR.

Daniel Bachman

New album from Daniel Bachman (previously known as Sacred Harp). Daniel often is hailed as the successor to the Jack Rose/John Fahey school of American guitar, but his new release falls outside of those simplified parameters. Improvised and recorded dirty into a boombox "Grey-Black-Green" has more to do with Loren Mazzacane Connors, Ben Chasny or even some of Bill Orcut's recent acoustic work. The titled is a reference to Robbie Basho's “Esoteric Doctrine Of Color & Mood” as Daniel puts it: "There’s a chart based on a circle of fifths where every key represents a color and a mood.  'Grey Black Green' is the most fucked up sounding one." Droning dark improvised American ragas by a very impressive young talent.

Crystal Hell Pool

Review from The Stranger :
What a metamorphosis Crystal Hell Pool's undergone with Domain. Previous releases like Incantation to Nothingness and Infinity Medicine offer minimal ambient music that plumbs both radiant heights and tenebrous depths. Reference points include Mick Harris's isolationist Lull project, Brian Eno's beautifully desolate On Land, and Eliane Radigue's ARP synthesizer "aum"s—sounds geared toward deepest introspection and meditation. In other words, the output of Crystal Hell Pool (Seattle musician Chris Majerus) is the polar opposite of party music. Domain won't get spun on C89.5 or anything, but compared to past releases, it seems positively ecstatic. The most obvious difference here is that the tracks pulsate and have actual beats—beats that humans may even want to dance to. In an oblique way, Domain is a disco record; in a more overt way, it's a horror-film soundtrack waiting for a perverse Italian director to create grotesque images for it. "Life in Silence" lurches like an ogre in lead boots while synths whorl disorientingly above the menacing rhythm. "Visionaire" shimmies into a foreboding 4/4 groove somewhere between Goblin and Giorgio Moroder, entering a condition that PiL coined on their 1979 single: "Death Disco." The steadfast beats of "Debris" sound like gunshots in the distance while CHP's synths arpeggiate and swell in post-midnight melodrama. "After Image" evokes a beautifully damned Chris & Cosey club anti-anthem. But tracks like "Radioactive Cop," "Disembodied Features," and "Melting Face, Melting Hands"—pitiless trawls down industrial music's darkest, loneliest alleyways—show that CHP still ain't ready to throw his arms in the air and wave 'em like he just don't care. Deep down, he's still harboring antisocial feelings—but, thankfully, they manifest themselves in chilling, gripping music.

Dead But Dreaming' is a dark ambient tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, a virtual soundtrack to the Cthulu Mythos. Creeping atmospheres inspired by the ancient nightmares portrayed in his fiction work.

Download Dead But Dreaming


They take the inspiration in occult melodies and maniacal post-punk, in pop-muic and religious literature; they dip swift pain-hymns into a viscid drone and prayers. Overdriven guitars and voice break hardly thru the beat or on the contrary take it up. Young The Stooges could have sounding like that if it happen for them to be in Russia these days. But just this music makes teenagers from eastern part of Europe shake their heads, fuck and write "suicide" on walls of school-loo. The story repeats itself but in another place. It's 1969 baby.

Our Ceasing Voice & Satory

Sebastian says :
Combining the thrilling intensity of Post-Rock/Ambient quartette Our Ceasing Voice and the raw power of Vienna's Post-Metal pioneers Satory, this split 7" marks a blood-tingling release that proves the Austrian bands' talents by opening the door to a world full of melancholy and despair.
For Darkness Fears The Light poses the deeply moving return of Our Ceasing Voice after the success of their debut album 'When the Headline Hit Home'. Striking vocals and powerful drumming enable the band to dare the leap and take their ambient based tunes a step further, while retaining the outfits's full melodramatic force.
Originated in a time of change, Satory's track, The Translator, defines an important turning point in the story of the beast that was introduced in their 2009 EP. Expressive heaviness and valleys of hope constitute their new sound, bringing the powerful machinery back to the post-metal front.

Maybe it's a bad idea to start a description of a piece of music by admitting you don't know how to describe it. But we'll be honest with you: this album synthesizes so much of our taste that it's like trying to describe the taste of water to a fish. Part crooning electro-pop, part drone, half found-sound and all original, "Towards Your Own Worlds" from this frequent Zach Hill collaborator is a remarkable achievement in the abstract and concrete.
Cassette with download is out November 1st.

A digital release of 7 shows performed by Pregnant Spore on this past January tour. The Detroit show was left out because it sucked (issues with the sound system and I... made for a weird night). Also, the Dayton show was cancelled. So what is left is 7 field recordings (decent quality for a little MP3 recorder). Most performances consisted of lyrics by the NJ band "Prawn" near the end of each set, and then for the Chicago show, you'll hear some Bjork lyrics.

I rarely contribute to or put out tapes this long. However, the approach I wanted to take toward this recording specifically called for length. This tape is centered around the painstakingly slow process of having no choice but to mentally let go of something held dear. One of the elements of healthily coping with loss is to accept what is not in one's power to change. To manifest this concept audibly, I decided to let the instruments play themselves while I stepped back and "accepted" what I was hearing. Before recording, I routed and tweaked electronics so that there would be constant, out-of-sync, mysterious, apparent audible movement when initiated; oscillation and waveforms soaring against and within each other at a sluggish rate. Although I feel that these recordings could have been better composed and more dynamic, I let things operate naturally in order stay true to the concept. What you will hear on this tape is a form of nature uniquely taking it's course.

Government Alpha

I spoke with Yasutoshi, the man behind Government Alpha, about the recent Earthquake in Japan. He described it as "a terrible shaking!" The same could be said to describe the material he submitted to Rainbow Bridge for this release. It is almost as if he manifested the recent Japanese natural disasters in noise-form months before they occurred. This tape is plagued with swirling, swarming, scathing, oscillating textures that do not follow most harsh noise trends. These sounds seem to hurl you into a spiral of head-melting chaos more so than they crush your skull. Side B is a live performance recorded in June of 2010 is even more dynamic and diverse, including some nutty screaming from Yasutoshi's own vocal chords. This material is strange, ruthless, and the more I listen to it, the more I love it. Japanoise at it's finest, ladies and dicks.

Dismantled and remixed recordings of instruments, traffic, extreme weather, animals, paper ripping, plastic crinkling, thumbtacks being dropped, voices, household appliances, speeches, performance art, various objects being rattled and scraped... static, buzz, beeps, cuts, punches, squeezes and squeals. Despite the project name, none of this was performed live. This is a compilation of pieces that took months to put together.

Gorgeous aural soundscapes using samples, guitar, synth and electronics. This tape will make you take flight and dream in blurry, vague visions until it's time to flip the tape. Tyler Brassard originally swept me off my feet after listening to his release on Mars Pyramid. After wiping the dew from my eyes and coming down off my cloud, I stalked this guy until I convinced him to record something for a Rainbow Bridge tape. What I got was something even more sensational than I thought possible. This audio seems to sparkle, pulsate, float and flow like a shining, calm rapid amidst the cosmos.

The third major Megabats release in as many years, Solaria finds our heroes mixing the heads down droney blissbeat of the previous release with some new tricks. “Solar Eulogy” and “Enchantment” zone out into oblivion, driving forward, looking skyward. “Virtual Reality Enthusiasts” mixes micro-loops with reverb to create something akin to a brain-dead/chiptune Steve Reich.  While “Bog Surfin’” rides a wave of filth through Technicolor dub. Solaria is a sun prayer from under the shade of an ice cream truck. Sticky hands on Gameboys. Deal with it.

Leaf Decay is series of songs written during the turbulent Spring / Summer of 2011. Recorded at home, most tracks started off as improvisations which were then edited and added to with extra vocalisations / instrumentation and locally sourced found sounds. Whilst not moving away from a sound we've developed over the last year and a half, these recordings have a darker note to them than anything previous.

Dementia And Hope Trails

A 2-part album of psychedelic ambience and deeply emotive soundscapes, all created with guitar and effects to the key of letting go, letting the universe work, falling in love, and paying attention to every piercing detail as one's internal chemistry collides with the cosmos. This album destroys Limerence, lights the way for genuine affection and illuminates it's depth. Reflective, meditative, reactionary, memorable, comfortable, cryptic. Not one key from a synthesizer has been struck. This is an abstract form of post-rock meets shoegaze guitar playing, rarely allowing the conventional sound of a guitar emerge. Slow, dense, shimmering drones and tastefully arpeggiated riffing that sparkles as well as haunts. Loosely improvised, extremely focused, always knowing where it's going, experiencing uncharted wonder along the way. For fans of Hammock, Stars Of The Lid, Appleseed Cast, This Will Destroy You, Sam Goldberg, Spermwhales, Quiet Light Water Gap...

After a string of releases and reissues on such labels as Digitalis, Aguirre, and Group Tightener, Matt Lawson brings us his brand new full length.  Confusion Control is full of surprises and small additions to the Secret Color sound.  More casio and piano than ever before.  Haunting 80’s post punk melodies bumping up against his beach haze guitar.  “Lime Green” brings us his catchiest melody yet, while the closer “Time Lapse Garden” is a meditative lullaby. A beautiful and mature work from one of Seattle’s rising forces.

SORRY is one David Bourgin.  SORRY is an attempt to create something that is unconsciously self-conscious, playfully serious, and unrepentantly apologetic; a celebration and resolution of false conflict.  SORRY creates something organic out of inorganic elements (alchemy) in the hopes of, during some fleeting moment (the decisive moment), capturing something that is greater than the sum of its parts. This is a burbling, buzzing, blissed (and blessed) out transcendental pop record in the same vein as work by pioneers EMERALDS, FORMA, KWJAZ, and LUCKY DRAGONS.
