Pleasure Island - Patriot Games

Pleasure Island - Patriot Games

Tom Clancy influenced power electronics. This is different from the stuff I posted last year of Pleasure Island - this is a lot more PE influenced and reminds me of the LR and FFH records that came out last year. Every song teases and makes you wish this was a longer release (not a con). Very highly recommended, still available from the label.

Constrain - Default Trade

Constrain - Default Trade

Harsh cut up noise from a great newish label. At some points it is so cut up it sounds a little like breakcore, but this is still a very much so harsh noise release. This boxset sold out from the label fairly quickly so I'm not sure where you can get a copy. I strongly suggest checking out other titles from Compulsion Rites and Constrain if this is up your alley.

Marshstepper - Give Yourself To The Moon

Marshstepper - Give Yourself To The Moon

I was hoping to post a few of the tapes I got a few weeks ago from the January Program but I tried ripping one and got discouraged at how bad it was dubbed so I haven't really tried to listen to any since then. That and I've been out of the country and otherwise busy.

This is a great release and sounds great too (a handful of the tapes I got from these guys were dubbed incorrectly). For a band that has hyped live performances and only a few releases this release does them justice. It teeters on the edge of noise and industrial. One of my favorite tapes from the January Program, even though I got around 13 of them and only a few of them have rips floating around.
