905.150: OPHIBRE "PSYLLIUM HUSKS" C38
boston-based ophibre digs deep into the grime pockets for psyllium husk, three tracks lurching through a 38 minute cassette. the a side, a live track from dec 2010, marries windblown oscillations with rack & pinion synth. it has it's gnarled moments, but is mostly collected and hypnotic. the two jams on side b are along the same lines, maybe a bit more minimal and clangy. sounds like contact mics make it into the mix. all around another stellar benefaction from rossignol.

905.149: WINTER RITUAL "BETWEEN LIGHT" C30
four pulsing, warped cuts from max gambill. dude dropped a 25 minute jammer last year on 905 under the name cave. he has since ditched that handle and has been recording obtuse brain dwellers as winter ritual, bellowing that bleak muddiness by way of guitar and synth.

905.148: SHINGLES "WHITE OUT" C30
why jesse derosa (the dude in grasshopper with the glasses, not the hats and shoes) has waited so long to drop material from his solo effort shingles makes no fucking sense to me. these four tracks, recorded in 2010 using only an evi and loopstation, are next-level impressive. derosa creates and manipulates multiple pastel layers, delicately maneuvering through ripples and waves of sound with hannibal lecter-esque focus. this is fine-grained fantasy music. to get similar results, pop a dark crystal vhs into your vcr, but switch the audio and video cables so you can listen to the sound that the images create. bam. white out.

905.145: DEREK ROGERS "FROM THE WORLD WE HID" C30
nobody with a freshly packed brain in their skull is gonna argue with new derek rogers material floating out into the universe, and here we have six new jams to latch onto. from the world we hid is a neurological collection of condensed noise/static crunch that dances with it's optic synth partner. rogers brings a sonic splattering that is both calm and corroding. a perfect numbness with and ardent odor.

905.144: MEANING "THE BEGINNING IS THE END OF THE BEGINNING OF THE END" C62
the dayton trio of matt ries (teeth collection), josh fink (plamsmic formations), and eli caudill (original tongue) strut out the bat shit free-imrpov sessions. imagine your upstairs neighbors are pumping a pink floyd vhs bootleg while your downstairs neighbors (who, for whatever reason, are crazy-nervous about earth quakes) are doing another one of their mid-night drills. and while the weirdo dad in 2f is throwing pots and pans at his kids, and sage keeps telling trey to "whoa! whoa! rewind that part one more time!" up in 4f, you're eating cold pizza and smoking resin off of a clothes hanger in 3f. what's it all f'n mean? f'n meaning.

905.143: SPECTRUM TICKETS "LAMB PATTERNS" C35
spectrum tickets, named after a neon sign in the window of ticket town down on 9th street in wilmington, is a solo synth project i've been jamming on for a bit, but never released anything until now. five tracks of arpeggio escalation, cool pulses, and gleaming swells. definitely the most "musical" haley project to date. pro dubbed on chrome tapes.

905.142: AIEYIYIYI "MANNERS" C24
half of pine smoke lodge belts out some ludicrously melancholy dream sequences. soft strings, chimes, and chants ripple on by. seriously, when you listen to this, all you're gonna be able to envision is a panning shot of a dust busted, wasted earth and some bummed out loner saying "there used to be life here. there used to be something." or some shit. it's like these sounds make nature so woebegone that it doesn't even feel like supporting itself anymore. or maybe the material is just so uplifting that brains get baffled by the beauty. who knows? either way, we'll all come out okay as long as we have manners.

905.139: 70's ERA PINK FLOYD "'MECHANICAL CANNIBALS" C30
dan smith (red electric rainbow / neon blossom records) keeps the compass needle spinning with the three offerings on mechanical cannibals. motorized snaps and cracks interweave with serpentine clusters of synth produced loops and waves, keeping the eggheads and zoner boners alike on the nonstop guess-whats-next tip. sampled dialogue creeps in on the b-side, rounding out another amazing cassette release from this windy city savage.

905.137: DEVELOPER "905.137" C41
alright, so here's the basic run down. matt reis used to fry circuits under the moniker teeth collection. somewhere along the line the dude decided to just rub his finger pads up pine cones and banjos and shit. maybe he lived somewhere without electric or y2k finally went down, but only in dayton. in any event, he obviously got the bug back up his ass to lay electronics to waste once again. hence the birth of developer. and that is exactly what he is doing with this project. in a major way. here is a 41 minute distortion butcherment. butcherment? fuck yea!

905.135: JOSH LAY + WYATT HOWLAND SPLIT C50
i figured one night "you know, josh lay and wyatt howland both come across as pretty scummy dudes." like voted "most likely to pass out in a leather jacket" in high school kind of dudes. but they don't go to high school. they are some kind of dropped out five years ago but still hang there to sell weed kind of dudes. and i mean that in the best possible way. i've never even met lay before. only hung with wyatt once or twice. the first thing he ever said to me was something about getting "tour pussy". plus they both jam some fairly gross tunes to match. covered in all kinds of muck. why don't they have a split? doesn't make sense. so here we are. pro-duplicated on chrome tapes.

905.134: BLACK ONYX "SEXT” C30
stupid fresh unit out of michigan here. coltrane (the coldest turkey), michelle birawer (the strangest brew), sean hooker (the tariest pit), thom elliot (the most pleasurable dome), and sam wagner (he makes 5 in all). top notch recording, but still basement-style. heavy reverb, metallic scrapes and shit. but also gnarl static and thumps and solar plunges. seriously crucial stuff going on here.

905.133: AJILVSGA "BLACK SKY MONSTER" C28

905.131: JOE BREITENBACH + SKY LIMOUSINE + PLASMIC FORMATIONS + XIPHIIDAE "INFINITE SPECIES" 4-WAY 2XC30
about a year ago i was working at this real shit job. the actual work wasn't all that bad, but the second shift hours, crappy drives, and cesspool of nincompoops really took a toll on my laid back lifestyle. on the a.m. rides home i'd jam some tapes that would put my brain in a sweet spot before getting home and completely zoning out to alf dvds. the four artist represented here got constant rotation/made for makeshift medication. i quit that job, and asked these dudes to pump a four way of calm storm vibes. i guess things work out in the end. packaged in double tall norelco cases courtesy of the rev-man.

905.130: HUNTED CREATURES + BLOWN DOORS SPLIT C62
pittsburgh's hunted creatures appear here as a four member unit, dangling luminous strands of acoustic/electronic stunners from the clouds. confused cosmic vapors, tip toe violin fragments, and haunted percussion rhythms cruise the endless slip and slide. the blown doors duo of haley & connolly got together for some home made chili and planetary vibes one evening, and this is the result. it was the first bd session in a bit and felt pretty good. subtle and gnarly simultaneously through tampered vocals and heavy, stretched out bass throbs.

905.129: BATTLESHIP "NEON RANCH" C20
chicago duo battleship harness smooth satellite signals here on "neon ranch". layers of mist-like drone and scattered buzz shots go back and forth on the neon side. ranch, though pretty much a continuation of the jam, gets a bit more flustered as the steady winds turn into typhoons.

905.128: BEN BILLINGTON "BRAVE GRAVE #3: DRUMS" C92
another endurance run in the brave grave series. ben billington (tiger hatchery/quicksails/et al) hits the ground running behind the drum kit with this 92 minute, no-effects/no-nap time/no prisoners percussion suicide trip. described by billington as "sorta masturbatory", which is probably the best way to put it. falls somewhere between buddy rich and animal with a plush room-echo chill to it. i get tired just listening to it, so i have no clue how this dude actually accomplished the jam. kudos.

905.127: GARRINCHA & THE STOLEN ELK "BLACK SAMBO/WHITE MAMBA" C21
garrincha & the stolen elk is the sacramento pairing of matt kretzmann and davy bui (proprietor of the weird forest label). together, the these two left-coasters soak gnarly electronic debauchery with ghetto jazz and some bruised beats/vocal workouts. moments of musicality of the more "barely traditional" variety, by way of guitar/horn/percussion, come and go, but more or less give way to monolithic blowouts. four cuts of dance music from space is what it is, man.

905.126: DOG LADY "WERE WE WEAKENED BY THE RISING BEATING AGAINST THE SEAWALL" C30
neither one of these five tracks nail down the back-and-forth sound of "were we weakened..." by michigan's mike collino, aka the dog lady. the first of the group takes up the a-side. a 12 minute macabre offensive of shivering violin scratches and reverberated throbs. the four remaining tunes on side b start off with scalding electronics, more violin denseness, and vocal recordings ever so processed, but give way to patience and music-box composure by the end of things, making pit stops along the sampled voice highway for beers, chips and a foundations 45. the dog lady lays down intense weirdness for intense weird ears. the covers are printed on transparencies with an unrecognizable image. to quote the dog lady "the recordings are a mess, my life is a mess, etc., so the cover won't lie." nutshelled.

uber-rich vibes from staplerfaher, the solo project of steffan de turck (a vibrant struggle), made for his upcoming winter rendezvous through the states. side a boasts three numbers. dustup brawls through the am dial and frostbitten pulverizers is the general theme, with a far more slime-slug crawl on the flip.

905.124: PINE SMOKE LODGE "THE FINAL CLEAR WATER NIGHTSKY" C47
recorded at the same time as the duo's (currently forthcoming) lp, pine smoke lodge deliver two ambient/ambien goose eggs of atmospheric and foggy drone-beauty. a blend of distant chants, soft bells, and vaporous tremors of sound transport your being straight into a thick mist. seriously, it's like field recordings from the amazon.

905.123: COLLAPSED ARC "IN CONFIDENCE" C20
david russell goes off the deep end with his newest moniker, collapsed arc. with collapsed, russell dredges way down into the core of freak-out loops, brewing a batch of short (some as short as 20 some seconds, none actually reaching the three minute mark) weirdo repeater sessions. it's kind of like what mumbles from dick tracy would sound like if he got a delay pedal and a shoe box of lsd.

905.121: WETHER "UNNATURALS" C47
three new wether tunes, not for sale, but more of a 9.05 day gift. this c47 goes out with all orders until the well runs dry. these dudes were recorded over the past couple of months and consist mainly of scrappy, ear-biting harsh/weird/raspy bursts. lots of contact mic scrapes, fried-electronics, and oozing feedback. minimal amounts of synth smooth outs caked on as well.

905.120: VALES + MINUTIAE SPLIT C35
vales has a gig picking up people who poop themselves from seedy motels and driving them around. makes for good stories in the middle of the day, but he tends to fry up my text usage and send my bill overboard. one time he got in touch with a story about a lady who's kid (or maybe grandkid, or maybe both??) suffered from a condition she called "the rammies". it was a good story, and he named the track on this split after it. solid choice. total ether-fragment vibes going down here. tones that s-board on the rings of saturn. minutiae is a superstar three-piece, kind of like that cartoon called pro-stars where michael jordan, wayne gretzky, and bo jackson fought crime. jeff astin (xiphiidae/housecraft) dunks it from the foul line, william giacchi (magic lantern/super minerals) boosts the stanley cup over his head, and phil french(super minerals/stunned records) knows best. bed time stories on cough syrup.

a paralyzing cosmos ride from opposite coasters roped off and picasso trigger. roped off is the duo of mike haley (wether) and dave doyen (vales), delaware natives that, when added up, make the average height of two normal humans. picasso trigger is the latest from california's kevin mceleney, no stranger to the 905 roster (droughter, endless time, bruant des marais). both drip the icebox synth/electronic ooze, slowest motion style.

the second of the brave grave series finds mick barr (crom-tech, octis, quix*o*tic, ...), known for one step past insane shredding, going irrational on guitar (sans any effects) for an hour and a half. sometimes it comes across as an absurd spinal tap solo that wont end, then turns into barr's patented (patent pending) frenzied, blurred-finger freak outs. it's brilliant, but at the same time the audio version of water boarding.

"please play inside me! my natural reverb will make your heart feel like jello!" which is what we did, and you know what, that talking building was fucking right, man. matt knows the deal, and shows it on these five tracks. honing in on mainly acoustic elements like bells, metal on metal clatter, creepazoid scratching, and the like resulting in some next level teeth collection spookings. fun fact: teeth collection has appeared on three 905 tapes, but this is his solo debut. took long enough.
