|Sujo - Kahane |
FCR1210 The sounds of iron forged by lacerated hands for use on sacred altars, long buried in the rich organic rubble of human hopes.
Sujo's first vinyl release, pressed on 'tarnished gold' vinyl and lovingly packaged in hand-stamped jackets.
"...insanely lush, sweet melodies eclipsed by crushing chaos, grim static capable of summoning the darkest demons, pink drones blissing out in the clouds, crumbling walls of destructive industrial noise..." -- anti-gravity bunny
Full length LP $18 ppd (US)
|Hogra - Cannibal Oven/Poisoned Baptism |
FCR703 While there are often associations between heavy, noisy music and decay, it usually applies to collapsing social structures, or apocalyptic blight, or post-modern chaos. What about the much tinier examples of natural destruction which occur much more frequently in the world? Erosion, bio-degradation... rust.
"Hogra’s 7-inch slab of death is so pig-fucked it’s absurd, a moveable noise feast of burbling underbelly, buzzing insects, whirling tornadoes, shamanic-trance voices, and sheets of static blown by a vicious wave of hell-wind."-- Cerberus
Multi-colored 45rpm 7" $8 ppd (US)
|Plante - Harvest |
FCR1209 The smooth, deep groans of lunar gravity. Salt-soaked ropes swing against hollow masts. An orange helium balloon floats above the city's amber glow. Patrick is only mildy drunk, and enjoying a cigarette when she walks past. He stops her to share his joy that this purring orb is actually the harvest moon.
Kansas City's Andrew Plante presents four tracks of focused guitar work on this 45rpm, 12" vinyl release.
"This is a beautiful, haunting release that you are obligated not to miss." --KZSU
Glass colored vinyl $16 ppd (US)
|Rat Catching |
FCR1208 Debut recording from Jennifer Melinn's solo synth project which turns against the trend of spacey-retro-Schulze-Italo/Kraut soundtrack music. 10 tracks pressed into lilac, purple vinyl. Available in a limited run of 100 copies with hand stamped jackets.
"It's got a nasty edge that snags your ear like a rusty nail and scrambles your brain like the resulting rabies-style infection, swirling its elements around and around until the listener is Ralphing all over the place and coughing up a terrible combination of bile and melted cinnamon Jolly Ranchers." -- Tiny Mix Tapes
Purple vinyl $18 ppd (US)
|Comoros - White Flower |
FCR1207 Comoros' second LP on Fedora Corpse, "White Flower" features two side-long, delay chain improvisations for guitar and synthesizer. Sometimes it's ping-ponging arpeggios and other times it whips up cumulous clouds of confusion. Think thick layers of analog synth drone over distant riffs and endlessly decaying echoes. Limited to 100 copies in hand-painted jackets
"Both members focus their pursuits on drama over drift, accents over ambiance and the tidal over the time-consuming." -- Gumshoe Grove
White vinyl $18 ppd (US)
|Honest To Goodness |
FCR1205 Slowly expanding background textures boil over their scientist's aural beakers and spill electricity all over the gallery walls. Recorded live by Chad Stocker (The High Strung) as he played this solo guitar piece through an ouroboros of patches, cables and the world's greatest amplifier.
"...he has conjured such a strong swath of ambient music (both meditative and spooky, and even, above all provocative) that it has allowed me, or inspired me, to reflect so heavily upon the effect music can have on the brain." -- Deep Cutz
Blue/Orange squish vinyl $15 ppd (US)
|Evenings - Growing Isolation |
FCR1204 Miles Haney of Tapeworm tapes has an extensive discography of wonderful, limited releases for his creepy project, Evenings. This full length LP offers more deeply polished walls of heavy, gory drone.
"... there are soul sucking spirits lurking just below that misleadingly lovely top layer, a glimmering glistening crust over a constantly roiling cauldron of bottomless blackness..." -- Aquarius Records
Maroon vinyl $15 ppd (US)
FCR1202 After releasing many tapes and cdrs, Philadelphia’s Göte finally found its way onto the turntable. On this self-titled LP, the Melinns combine blind improvisation with death metal timbres in an attempt to develop the new genre of ‘Free-Metal’.
"...way beyond their previous outputs of free-metal zone-mulch with a red vinyl vision-dump of brain-gnarl heaviness...Very fucking great." -- Arthur Magazine
Red vinyl $15 ppd (US)
FCR1201This self-titled release from Comoros uncovers a new way to remove ego and showmanship from music. By running every instrument through a (ridiculous) delay chain, every individual note and riff evaporates into a unique musical fog.
"...smeared and blurred to the point of abstract beauty without the usual instrumental signifiers. When identifiable voices do emerge, they simply provide landmarks to help us catch our breath before sliding back into the beautiful murk." --foxy digitalis
Blue vinyl $15 ppd (US)
