    Jansky Noise & Speedranch - Mi^grate

    Adorned with drawings of malevolent cartoon monsters and a shot of some toothless geezer sucking on a forty ounce (of Crazy Horse, no less), Speedranch and Jansky Noise’s Migrate record looks to have all the trappings of a wicked metal showdown (with the clever song titles to boot). But these two traffic strictly in the noise aesthetic; metal sonics that sound as if conjured from spinning Sabbath records backwards in the hope of finding messages from the Dark Lord.

    <b> µ-Ziq </b> - Bilious Paths

    Like broken glass on the sidewalk debris and clutter also dominate the music of µ-zig. After some years without a proper release under this moniker Mike Paradinas returns with a heavy and diverse album of electronic tracks that feature it all: harsh gabber, techno, even a little 2-step and drum’n’bass – all of it in true µ-zig style which means all mixed into one. This one is not for the faint-hearted nor for the party-people. Yet the album is dedicated to
