[TFR366] Fuck Your Speakers Double Header Part II Disc 4
Confusing = Entertaining Part II
A review with the most different sequels i’ve ever written I
Fuck Your Speakers 2 – Disc 4 – Delicate Porcini-Flavoured goggles track-by-track first impressions (part 1?)The next part of Fuck your Speakers Double Header is sponsored by http://www.random.org, which im using to decide which disk i will review. First part can be found here. Inserting numbers between 1 and 6 (the number of discs on Fuck your speakers) and pressing “Generate”. “3, okay I reviewed that part already”. Pressing “generate” again. “3, meh, what are the odds to this?” “Generate” 4.
I actually had a quick glance of the opening track, Nathan Watson’s Auf Deutsch, already. A very quiet 12 minute dark ambient epic I couldn’t really listen last time as i was playing Nhl 2004. It officially got into my “Listen later with headphones” -list, along with Mutant Beatniks’ drift (from CD 3). And yes, this is some really minimalistic shit, with echoed german speech and other well, echoes, in the background. At about 7 minutes it starts to gain more of an edge and scary sounds, jumping from one place to another. After continuing scary boosts for a few minutes it fades back to similar flow than in the beginning with only vague speaking. Fit with a well adjusted last.fm pic (look a few inches to the left), bringing up, if possible nothing to relate to in regards of the track.
NB,PD! – Budapest In A Dyke’s Spike
Glitching, is that german again? Breakbeat. This is nearly the kind of stuff i was expecting of this release, but even this has a melodic stellar beat.
NB,PD! – Gentle Nibbling Of Goat Babies And The Jealous Ramming Of Goat Mothers
NB,PD! is quickly becoming the foremost contender of best track titles of the album, with indeed, Gentle Nibbling sounds. The track becomes something that I would expect to happen in a twisted upside down world of Jack Vance’s book, The Dying Earth. Adorable. Knowing that RedSK has multiple tracks in the end of the Disc 4, i am expecting him to take the challenge.
NB,PD! – Trying To Tie A Ligature Around One Testicle
Definition of Ligature:
- A cord, wire, or bandage used for tying or binding.
I imagine the first 1:20 are the actual process of tying a ligature in the testicle and after it we progress to the inner feelings of the other testicle, who seems to have quite a groove on. Horny, perhaps? The second part of the track is pure testicular love. Very different than the first half.
Omajinaakoos – Aegrus
Noise rock? Quite groovy beginning with a riff hinting you to hit the highway, and melodic leads, er, improvised? The sounds are good, musty, thick and dirty. The track seems to just skip from one part to another incoherently. At 2:26 we can hear a vague keyboard melody in the back, along with the oncoming boredom of the listener. 2:55 minute mark suddendly puts in a black metal melodic lead, with slow drumming. Honestly that part could be a good basis for a song, very potential. It ends to a lead which almost manages to be good but avoids it somehow. Then a basic riff offering nothing special. I love the band title i love the song title, i just wish the song had something more compact to offer.
Pheonix FM – Cougar Town
Pheonix is a common typo, i suppose the artist is really Phoenix FM. First sounding like cheap folk, but having an uplifting chorus with harmonica. One thing lacking, whiskey, son drink more whiskey and then try singing again. The harmonica is joyously providing steady melodies throughout the song.
Pigeon Cadaver – Just the ordinary Terror
Speedcore, with a melodic glitchbeat. Memorable! Now we are addressing the best track so far. Turning a beat into a melody works. What helps the case is the nice logo of the project. Unfortunately the beginning beat which was clearly the most memorable part of the track doesn’t repeat. It had a making of a fine chorus. Son, your track just needs a more coherent structure.
Pigeon Cadaver – Rhythmic Hetzjagd Action Terror
I have to admit the first love of Pigeon Cadaver wears off quite quickly…
But it comes back as quickly! Very African-spirited beat and a similar promising glitchy chorus at about 0:50 than in the first track. If we have some repetition this time, we are heading towards very memorable.
Pigeon Cadaver – Danphy Fanpy
I can imagine listening Pigeon Cadaver for an entire album. The atmosphere created by such beat oriented music is extraordinary when you are used to not having the beat as the main instrument.
Danphy consists of a hardhitting heavy metal-like beat with a small vague african voodoo vibe. Some doom interludes to launch a what? Galloping beat!? Again the great beats are a bit wasted of having no repetition of the most juicy parts, but another beat flowing after each other. Fluently, and definitely the track stays surprisingly interesting even without any melody.
Playing with nuns – Links to your parlante´s
Harsh Noise. A vision of an object trying to rise from liquid jelly: scratching on psychedelic colors the jelly reflecting glimmers. falls back inside the water, twists disproportionately to different directions. Ends midst of movement.
praytor – live your life
Ambient noise. Why not. Lots of intersting manouvers. Eclectic.
praytor – kogiga woodlands
For noise this is surprisingly calming. Fitting japanese samples and gentle white noise. Effortless.
praytor – melodii
Continues praytor’s ambient noise aspects, with a real start up melodii reminding of a really fucked up wind instrument. The calming ambient wears off at 1.15 with evil sounds. Entertaining.
praytor – a name in death
The gentle white noise seems to be an ongoing topic of praytor.
praytor – gypsy curse
Yes there is a gypsy reminding melody in the background. Praytor is pleasant background music noise. Hell in a perfect world in the elevators of any regular mall, you would listen Praytor.
Purulent Headache – Brutal EBM
Expecting something VERY brutal, but… Haha, brilliant laughs. Slow europop with cookie monster growling. Another thing i never imagined of existing. Reminds a lot of a band called Nightsatan and one of their main idologies: “Laser metal or horror pop”.
Purulent Headache – Clot of seminal fluid
Purulent Headache is a truly thrilling project! Oh my god, what a deep growl! Getting even lower than Demilich (oldschool death metal band from the 1990s). Another thing i did not know was possible. At least not naturally… I reckon this growl must be edited, Demilich got pretty far down, without any editing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxizB02d0gE) growling starting at 0.30.
Raiding The Crimson Tides – From A Grave (Feat Falcon Pawnch!!!)
Death metal and deathcore mixtured. The sounds are nice and muddy, except for the machinized drums. The deep growling is competent, the higher is clearly a notch down, though maybe it is just the deathcore aspect in that sound which brings it down for me. 1.27-2.00 offers an original breakdown with good guitar and synth melodies entwining. Unfortunately only for a short while as that was clearly the best moment of this track and showed that there is promise. The chorus and the synth melody are not very exceptional, however the synth manages successfully to avoid the worse casio sound.
A good break amidst all the completely electronic music. Will i listen this song another time? Probably once.
RedSK – Acoustics And LSD Part 2 (Feat. TJ Greggs & Lady Cumdumpster)
A guy playing off-tune guitar, laughing. The melody closes off being on tune but manages to avoid it. Idiotic. The 2:19 part is awesome. Clearly lots of fun (for about 5 seconds). I started laughing even before the music burst out of laughs. This is not ominous but Im sure this stuff would terrify any basic person on LSD. Im surprised if they weren’t terrified themselves.
RedSK – Live Segment Beat Up Tape 1
Rising soundwave sliding pitch shift featuring inhuman cookiemonster
RedSK – Pretty Asian Painted Toenail (RedSK Remix)
Wrap the ace toaa toaa wrap the ace tooaatoaaa. This IS ominous.
RedSK – I Wanna Fuck That One Chick That Screams In Iwrestledabearonce
THIS is the very essence of Redsk’s noise-sound. Raping loud soundwaves which are repeating in small sections inside each other. Volume changes are notable, this time the quiet section is in the very end.. Song ends soon enough for you to want a relisten.
