It has been sitting in my "to listen" pile since... JUNE 2022... shit. I knew this was going to be a really good album, but no clue what the hell took me so long. Well worth the wait though. Next up on my neglected listening pile is the Worth Sacred Violence Noise CD.

Finally getting around to the Worth - Sacred Violence Noise reissue. Funny enough, I've already received and listened to Calypso and Hamper before throwing this on. Hamper is great and Calypso is very good but I need to spend more time with it, but today we are talking about Sacred Violence Noise. Sacred Violence Noise is much different than I expected. A very dynamic affair with volume fluctuations and swings from loud harsh blasting to low-volume field and source recordings. Production is raw and minimal. The release was recorded and produced from a trip to Thailand and is very much shaped by very specific circumstances of the local environment and experiences. Sound sources consist of excerpts from a live performance given at The Museum of Contemporary Arts, the town bells, a communal loudspeaker, and recordings of the town's roosters if I've understood correctly. Liner notes are extensive and contain details about the nature of the trip, philosophical and artistic concepts about communication, and violent grand gestures which result in generational global, political, and cultural shifts. A very complex release. I think part of my initial hesitation in checking this out earlier was a quick sampling through the material when I first received it and it being vastly different than what I expected coming off of Oculus, Gone Down, or Roosting. Now that I've spent some time sitting with it, digesting, and absorbing the liner notes, it feels like a very personal release. I think it's going to warrant many spins to fully grasp and engage with the album further. Usually, the releases that generate this level of curiosity, intrigue, and questions warrant more attention and develop into our favorites over time.

Quote from: Baglady on April 20, 2023, 12:09:30 AMARKHE - Taurokhton C40 (Narcolepsia, 2023)Funny how I have everything by Arkhe except my own split tape with the guy. Anyway... The first few releases from 2012 and onwards were quite allright, but with Downstream (2016) he took a turn in what has proved to be a direction full of strange surprises. More eccentric and more introvert at the same time, and with the course set for the outer rims of space, the themes and titles nodding towards mythology, sci-fi/fantasy novels and presumably things very personal. A wild mix draped in simple austere garment. Stripped down, with humming and idling synthezisers being the spine. Nothing strange about that, but it's the far reaching limbs here - dissonant choirs, drums, odd loops etc - which sets it apart. I struggle to come up with a description of what this industrial nugget sounds like. It is a logical extension of the great Deep In Sleep CD (2017), but goes off in many directions while somehow remains coherent. Things that come to mind: Stalker, Leichenlinie, Mnem, Klaus Schulze, Joseph Hammer - Roadless Travel, 2001: A Space Odyssey. What does one make of that? Brilliant one-of-a-kind industrial.
