So... I still subscribe to Fabric in London and they now send out vinyl once a quarter which is pretty cool.
This month (due to covid problems and the club being shut) they have partnered with their Houndstooth sister label and sent out the latest double vinyl various artists released on sexy yellow vinyl.
A great varied compilation of crazy bass and weird experimental sounds from a great cast of artists I don't really know about. You can stream a section of each track here to give you an idea:
33EMYBW – Medical Fodder Gooooose – We've All Been There LYZZA – Rifle Amazondotcom & Siete Catorce – Absent City AYA – DaRE u to sour lips with me Hyph11E – Owl Whispers E-Saggila – Shd Debit – Primal Use of Wind Core Self – Suspiria DRVGジラ – Funeral Flowers Osheyack – SAF E Deena Abdelwahed – Abbrejiyeytar Lila Tirando a Violeta & Lighght – Ritual For Rusting Metals Slikback – Shogai Odete – Epilogue For A Banshee Cry

A 25 track experimental album based around a T.S Elliot poem of the same name, released by Houndstooth, the record label affiliated with Fabric and run by Rob Booth of Electronic Explorations.
With tracks by Kangding Ray, Hodge, Pye Corner Audio, Batu, Roly Porter, Gazelle Twin and Lanark Artefax
23 tracks that meander between scuffed techno fodder, abstract jungle artillery, and behemoth ambient tones
First proper album-like release since Modern Warfare, but much more balanced. Some tracks are direct callbacks to that sound, like Sanctuary, Make It Real, and Brainstorm, but he gets a bit more experimental with Leviathan and Replicant. All flavors of techno here too, with the brooding Catacombs, the over-stimulated Curtain Twitcher, the naive Tiresias, and the aptly-named Scrambled in LS1. The part that personally surprised me was how actually good the ambient stuff is, right from the warm and triumphant opening Chrysalis (which i keep thinking sounds like a reprise of New Seeds) to the warning calls of Transmission. Reckoning sounds straight out of a contemporary action film. In Loving Memory ends the album on a surprisingly human note, despite the overall cold outer shell of the two-hour record
You could call the whole thing badly navigated and overly broad in its genres, but i think it's a really impressive piece from Paul Woolford, showcasing masterful ability even sometimes at the expense of coherence
Just released the first single from an upcoming EP
It's rather heavy and raucous, interested to know what ya'll think about it?
XLR8R were kind enough to premiere it as a free download:
