Constrain and Wrong Hole– split 7”
Constrain and Wrong Hole– split 7” (limited to 100) documents the first release on vinyl for Long Beach based KDM (Kevin McEleney) and Los Angeles/Long Beach based Nial Morgan. Both well known for their phenomenally original approaches to noise composition and live performance; this Oxen release of new tracks showcases the potent combination of symmetrical equanimity and malice on ‘Mutual Transgressions’ and ‘Solitary Source’.
Wrong Hole: Nial Morgan, slashing paths through forests of electro-tape destructive territory with sleep deprived swagger, his compositional prowess is on rare and inspiring form throughout Mutual Transgressions’ specifically obtuse personal narrative.
Constrain: Solitary Solace, exceeding the expectations of his always brilliant razor burst cut-up noise infamy, here he expertly delivers a punishing scything. The track deftly ladders to a crushing apex, explodes all the listener’s cognizance before submitting to KDM’s sonic design certainty and returns rattled consciousness ending 5 minutes and 21 seconds of sublime cacophony.
