about

Lighten Up Sounds is proud to present this soggy new selection of abstract transmissions from the main Murk-Man himself. Mole Hole is the solo bummer-electronics project of Matthew Himes, reclusive small-town misanthrope, and chief proprietor of the Lighten Up Sounds imprint. What we present here is a long time coming anthology of six new ten minute tracks, each thematically sequenced for their respective sides. These are sprawling and depressive works focused upon the psychological effects of physical isolation and severe emotional deprivation. Makes for a full hour of deep mud-pit spelunking. This lovely box-set presents a gurgling expanse of “warts-and-all” extreme-sound coping mechanisms, ranging broadly from minimal deep-fuzz delusion to bizarre aggressive assault mode. Tape machines, amplified file cabinets, Wavetek signal generator, Korg Monotron, rusty sheet steel, creaking springs, xerox machines, violin scratch, obscure field recordings, mysterious found sound and even glimpses of seething vocal rage floating up through the fog. Includes an exclusive creeper-zone track composed in honor of the legendary cult-classic horror film ”Re-Animator”. Matching set of three transparent blue shell cassettes with black and white “F. T. W.“ labels comes packaged in a heavy 5"x 9" audio-book album featuring stark black and white “Blindfold Lesson” artwork with hand-numbered Seclusion text pasted inside. Nobody cares, get used to it.
