SOLDIER'S DISEASE

OFF THE SIDE, INTO THE OTHERS (TRIBUTE FOR VOICE)

offtheside

My good friend Ryan Martin made this collage and this mix for Soldier’s Disease some time ago but I hadn’t posted it thanks to general inactivity, which should be remedied soon. It’s such a great mix that I had to get it into the world, so here ya go. You probably know Ryan from his solo work or in York Factory Complaint, On a Clear Day, Hanel Koeck. He is also one half of DAIS Records and runs his own cassette imprint Robert & Leopold. York Factory Complaint have a release coming out on Chondritic Sound soon. Below is what Ryan has to say about his mix:

“When I was putting together the tracks on this mix, I was gathering a collection of people or songs that I had an unusual, albeit interesting fascination with. Whether it was the people themselves or what they created, something compelling drew me to these tracks and how I understood them very well on their own. When I placed together these works, the invisible lines connected themselves in my mind and hopefully, with the help of technology, I was able to get these connections across to a yet to be determined audience.

Stated as a “tribute for voice” but it’s not the voice of any one person speaking or vocal accompaniment. It’s more in tribute to the voice this collection of people have found and when the pieces were put together, one voice was pushed along. This entire mix will make sense to someone, I hope it isn’t just me.”

SEWER TRANSMISSION

My friend Jonathan Canady made this great mix for the site. You may know him from his latest post-punk-meets-kraut project Diamond Cult, album covers he’s designed, and last but most certainly not least his own insane  maze of psychosexual paintings. Forthcoming is an hour-long synthesizer horror excursion titled “Am I Dreaming? Yellow” via cassette on Chondritic Sound.

STEAM UP

Good friend and amazing musician Damion Romero (known for his earth-moving heavy tonal work under his own name, and previously as Speculum Fight) offered up a recording of a radio show he’d done over 8 years ago playing exclusively Steam Engine records, something he has an impressive collection of. So that brings us here, where you can hear some of his favorite sounds from of these now extinct beasts.

THE GIFT OF SOUND AND VISION

I’ve been taking videos of live shows for a while now but haven’t found the right zone to post them. So here’s me saying “fuck it” and shoving a few of them at you in this post. Below are videos from Cold Cave, Prurient, Chelsea Wolfe and Cult of Youth, all filmed by me in Los Angeles over the past week.

Chelsea WolfeMoses – Live at the Echo in Los Angeles, July 23, 2011. From her amazing LP on Pendu SoundThe Grime and the Glow

Cult of YouthCold Black Earth & The Devil’s Coals – Live at the Echo in Los Angeles, July 24, 2011. Respectively from their DAIS LP “A Stick to Bind, a Seed to Grow” and their new 7″ on Blind Prophet Recordings “The Devil’s Coals“.

Prurient – Live at the Ukranian Cultural Center in Los Angeles, July 27, 2011. Songs are: A Meal Can Be Made, Watch Silently, Cocaine Death, There Are Still Secrets. Cocaine Death is from the CD/CS release of the same name, and everything else is from the new LP/CD/CS on Hydra Head.

STREETCLEANER

New mix by one of the deep crew, psycho KHR from Michigan. He runs the mighty fine Nurse Etiquette label and all of its subsidiaries (Annex Scum, Gifts of Vacant Mortuary, etc), which I hear will be morphing into Nostilevo. We operated dismal scrap metal sound together under the guise of Chainfight. Khris’ current incarnation is the intruiguingly named Scorpio & Glass, who has had a handful of releases on cassette, one of which was on previous mixtape contributor Ryan Martin’s Robert & Leopold label. Rumor has it that he’s working on a follow-up to this mix, so keep your ears peeled for that one.
