Sprawling harsh /ambient weirdo-electronics from the collaborative duo of Victor Estrada (Little Red Houses) and Justin Marc Lloyd (Pregnant Spore). This new work "Condemned Household Placenta" consists of two massive twenty minute tracks focused on the theme of common household bacteria and fungus. Melodic organ phrases are buried beneath wailing feedback loops and circuit bent skree, all heavily mixed with bizarre snips of classical music and flailing static frequencies. Proof positive that "noise" can in fact convey real emotion and feeling. Lighten Up Sounds has subjected this excellent new work to our heavy-handed pure analog approach, and we are proud to offer this new full length album as an extremely limited edition 8-track cartridge. These have been real time duplicated to meticulously selected recycled 8-track tapes. Each cartridge has been painstakingly quality tested, bulk erased and real time duplicated using a high end recorder, resulting in these beautiful all analog contemporary noise artifacts. First three cartridges are Pink, Blue, and White, remaining ten cartridges are Black. All orders come with a free digital download code for all you non-luddites. Features original beautiful / repulsive full color collage artwork by M.H. made entirely from close up photographs of moldy yogurt, bananas and rotten meat. Spectral germ-sounds projected from the inner mind cloud.
