Dour - Corruption C30

Sam Dour sits among other Michigan coarse sound men like Draheim and Raven Strain in spirit, but on a generally noisier level. This tape has tangents to 90's Macronympha, only without pics of busted up female junk on the cover... Sam wields the heavy buzz axe on this one, melding deadpan rumbles with sharp waves of harsh and long passages of static hum pierced through with hidden feedbacked mixer tones, burrowing deep within your cortex, resembling the warble you get on the inside of your mind when stress rises into the red zone. Barely there machinery, corruptive destruction and contemplative hands-off.


Super Jam - Dex User CDr

Super Jam is an attempt to reflect the synthesizer music of Brad Fiedel, the essence of science fiction and yuppie rock through a mix of laser fields and euphoric erase in order to soundtrack mental projections of the meditative and interpreting fabric of saturated sound and meandering memories. Heavily enveloping, rythmic and melodic through techniques of confusion and mutation.


Insect of Business - Peavey Standard CDr

Through the help of the Upper Layer HQ I am proud to present a reissue of Insect of Business' 12" Peavey Standard on Pensacola's Malibu/Bust label. Originally released in 2009, this recording has two very differing sides, where the first side is a long collage of snippets of commercials sped up and slowed down, synthesizer gargle, riffs, cartoon stupidity and schizophrenic confusion. Like a computer virus hooked into your mainframe, distorting all senses. Second track is a way mellow space travel fantasy where the Nautilus slowly drifts through the cosmos, organic cybersights in vakuum - could almost be the hungover nightmares of Steve Roach.
