Cremation Lily - Fluids Of October

Cremation Lily - Fluids Of October

I can't believe this is the first time I have posted about Cremation Lily. I have bought almost everything he has released up until recently, and Fires Frame The Silhouette is one of my favorite albums to come out this year (even though it isn't entirely new stuff). But anyways, this is very different from the usual material you've heard from Cremation Lily. This is actually the whole synth pop, ambient, "bubblegum industrial" thing Croatian Amor has going, which I really like. There are basically 2 melodies on this tape and some sound collage and noise work, essentially VERY similar to Croatian Amor. I keep saying Croatian Amor. Pick this up if you like Croatian Amor.

Dry Insides - Crawl Back

Dry Insides - Crawl Back

One man black metal band by means of Cali. Reuben Sawyer does a lot of design work for Acsetic House and is affiliated with Window, Florida Man, and Hallow Sunshine, etc. He's also really good at making emblems, fun fact. Anyways, this has the almost blackened punk Bone Awl sound but not quite. Fallow Field would do you no wrong, neither would I. Very promising, hopefully we hear some more new material shortly.

Already Dead - Self Decay

Already Dead - Self Decay
self released

The 3rd installment of the Youth Attack distributed extremely raw release from this mysterious band. This one is an intro, an original song, and a cover. The progress is nice but I can't help but feel this is more garage rock than the other releases. Not that I didn't hear it before or that that's a bad thing, but this is a further step in that direction. As usual great artwork on this, I wish these guys would release more than 8 minutes of music at a time though (this one doesn't break the 6 minute mark).

Ride At Dawn - No Road Home

Ride At Dawn - No Road Home

Fuck yes, new Ride At Dawn. Raw mid tempo black metal/hardcore by means of Toronto. Apparently this is their final release, RIP. Probably my favorite tape from the Fallow Field batch.

Window - Salvation

Window - Salvation

Very intense industrial power electronics release on the mighty Fallow Field. I don't know a lot about this but it's loosely affiliated with the Ascetic House crew. This is right up my alley though, I really like the whole industrial synth sound and this nails it. It's packaged in one of those single hollow cases that a bunch of Satan's Din stuff was in so you can enjoy collapsing the case at some point. I picked this up from Youth Attack but it'll be available to purchase soon from Fallow Field

V. Sinclair - Memoirs Of A Twin

V. Sinclair - Memoirs Of A Twin

Unseen Force has been a fairly active label for over a year now and I have a handful of their stuff but somehow never got around to posting it. I felt this was important enough to post though - a 2xCS release from V. Sinclair who has done stuff on Prime Ruin and Strange Rules. There are a couple of harsh points to this release but it also has a lot of dark ambient and "synth" type aspects to the tracks (I don't know what you'd call it, I can't think of the word at the moment but it isn't synthpop). Unseen Force runs a pretty deep distro so be sure to pick up some stuff, I actually just ordered some stuff today!
