REVIEW: Golgotha Communications Limited - Gatha Yasna

A review in which I dissed the band for spelling their own name wrong on the front cover of the record.  

 ...but all copies on the internets seem to have fixed that mistake, so when I rant and rave about it in the review, and then all the pictures accompanying the review are spelled correctly, I do look like a complete cockwomble.  But look at that picture - proof!
Review written for Heathen Harvest, editorial kindnesses by Sage Weatherford.

"There are a bunch of tracks here that the album would definitely be better without, or with a tighter edit, or with another layer.  There’s amazing stuff here; Gatha Yasna is really quite great in a whole lot of ways, but it’s kind of let down by the amount of unmoving and/or unfinished material sharing space with it on the album.  And the stuff that is really great more often than not just sort of drifts away without going anywhere, or is way, way too short."

INTERVIEW: Wok and I interviewed about Bruce by 2SER

Six minutes or so of Wok and I blabbing about Bruce on the 2SER breakfast show.  Slightly entertaining, relatively interesting, mildly informative, and a bit embarrasing (I kept talking over Wok, dammit - but, in my defense, I was several hundred kilometres away at the time).

REVIEW: Daniele Brusaschetto - Rapida E Indolore

Crunchy glitch drums meet existential Italian.   Review written for Heathen Harvest, editorial assistance by Sage Weatherford.

"The album has a simple and unified palette: hideously distorted drum machine/programming, simple but evocative string sounds (real or synthesised), and very human-sounding vocals, sung-spoken in a kind of non-musical-but-a-teensy-bit-musical-actually way amongst the noise and battery.  In my estimation, there’s really few things finer than a brutally distorted drum machine, and this album boasts one of the filthiest drum machines I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard a lot of filthy drum machines in my time)."
