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.”

You can download the mix HERE or click the play button to listen now.

THEY MADE ME THE KEEPER OF THE VINEYARDS

There’s a new Hive Mind cassette available, and it comes with a screenprinted 2×8″ patch with the “vines” logo on it. Labelled cassettes and blue-on-grey heavy linen stock art. In lieu of describing it, I’ve linked embedded the new Hive Mind BandCamp page for this release below. You can purchase digital or physical copies of the cassette. A lot of the older Hive Mind material is being added to the BandCamp at a “name your price” option for download, which means it’s free unless you want to donate. A Midwest/East coast tour is confirmed for the first half of May and I’ll be posting those dates here soon.

They Made Me The Keeper Of The Vineyards was inspired by loneliness, desolation, routine, Dellamorte Dellamore & Marco Corbelli’s Morder Machine. No drum machines were used on these recordings.

SEVEN HUNDRED INCHES

John Wiese currently has his first 100 7″ records on display at Family in Los Angeles. The first 99 7″s on the wall and his 100th, the single-locked-groove “Exhausted Spectral Incantation” placed on a turntable with headphones for listening. John also released a 150 page monograph documenting these 7″S and with essays by Sam McKinlay (The Rita) and Brian Roettinger. Here are a few photos taken at the opening:
