"Ciphers + Axioms"

pre-order now




ANATOMY OF HABIT’S Relapse debut ‘Ciphers + Axioms’ is an intensely terrifying tranced-out post-metal noise-rock masterpiece. Fronted by noise icon Mark Solotoroff (Bloodyminded) ANATOMY OF HABIT is rounded out by an all-star big band featuring legendary drummer John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea and Cake, Gastr Del Sol, etc), Will Lindsay (Indian, Wolves In The Throne Room, etc) on guitar, Theo Katsaounis (Joan Of Arc) on percussion and Kenny Rasmussen (ex-Radar Eyes) on bass more. Solotoroff leads the band through 2 twenty+ minute epic songs of tensely monolithic walls of guitar and percussion with his baritone vocal poetics. With ‘Ciphers + Axioms’ ANATOMY OF HABIT take their place amongst Swans and Neurosis as being one of the most unique and truly gifted post-metal heavy music bands of all time.

The Quash Wagon Reclusion
"Deconstructive Rock"
(released in May 2014)

This is an awesome example of
rallizes-denuded-death-drive-sharpened-robotics with injected mild auto-destructive loops and skullfloweredly-re-chorded sunroofs backgrounded by xenakis' dead-end glissandi and unheard of instrumental dia-logics and shadows ! 

Highly recommended !



Debut Full-Length From The Quash Wagon Reclusion; A Three-Song Manifesto Of The Band's Method Of The Same Name. All Music Improvised In Real Time, Recorded In ‎February/March 2014. Produced, Mixed, And Mastered In March 2014.

The Quash Wagon Reclusion is a virtual place; a machinery of null, a static of compulsive motion, a fragmented reflection's libido, a wholeness' death drive, a man defined by the sonic, a man caught in the sonic, a Buddhist transfigured by Kerouac, and a Buddhist annihilated by Žižek. Initially a semi thought experiment, we became interested in the practicality of the idea and the existential aspects of it, finding ourselves in the studio improvising, recording, recording, and improvising. The result was an EP entitled "Blatancy", which we released for free through Bandcamp in late 2013. Quite well received by the Obelisk radio who picked it up and included in their set, the Doom Lord who featured it on their YouTube channel, as well as a number of the musicians we adore, including James Plotkin, Eugene Robinson, Mario Lalli, and Dave Terry, we entered studio the following month, recording our debut LP "Deconstructive Rock".

Accrual - Cheophiori
on tape out on Moving furniture (8/2014)



Accrual is the duo of Ruaridh Law (TVO) on electronics and Alasdair Satchel on guitar. Their music is not easy to describe, but finds its way somewhere between drone and processed sounds. It has a natural vibe while at the same time being abstract.

The debut album by Accrual "Cheophiori" was first released as CD-R on French label Diesel Combustible. It was so difficult to get the CD-R and the artwork was full with mistakes that this really needed an update. Now in the remastered version with a bonus remix by Orphax it is finally available again. Now on Ruaridh Law's preferred format the cassette tape.

In Ruaridh Law his words:

Back in 2005 I lived in a tiny flat with my new wife and cat and my lovely cousin Alasdair Satchel was around from time to time. His first visit, he brought his guitar and I booted up my beloved AudioMulch. Late into the night we recorded an album of beautiful guitar drone and noisey ambience which to this day I'm not sure how exactly how we managed. After a nice lathe cut 7" on Geoffrey Dolman's excellent Static Caravan the whole thing was released on a french label, in an edition so insanely limited that even people mailing the label begging to get it were ignored. 9 years later, and after at least 3 years mulling the idea over, the lovely Moving Furniture Records is re-releasing it today on cassette and digital for the first time, lovingly remastered by myself last month. This is genuinely one of the favourite releases I've ever been involved in and it's different from anything since. Much love to Sietse van Erve for tolerating my errrr difficulties and having the vision and patience to put it out at last.

Merzbow
Live in Lille 2014


Plus a re-issue
of the very limited and important
A Handful of Dust -
"Topology of a Phantom City"(1997)
on tape (300 ex.)


Topology of a Phantom City was a cassette originally released in 1996 on Bruce Russell’s glorious Corpus Hermeticum label and this reissue captures the spirit of the original version by…well…by also being on cassette.

For these recordings, the core members of AHOD, guitarist Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and violinist Alastair Galbraith are joined by Peter Stapleton (Terminals, Pin Group, Scorched Earth Policy) on percussion and synthesizers. Both sides are sprawling paean’s to the glories of improvised invention, going through waves of menacing intensity and freeform scrawl.

Includes unlimited streaming of A Handful of Dust - Topology of a Phantom City via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Dès lors, que ce soit à propos de communication indicative ou d'expression, il n' y a aucun critère sûr pour distinguer entre un langage extérieur et un langage intérieur, ni dans l'hypothèse concédé d'un langage intérieur, entre un langage effectif et un langage fictif.

Thoughts of the Day #50/2014: Jacques Derrida / Patrick Emm / Claire Colebrook (4)



"C'est donc le rapport à ma mort (à ma disparition en général) qui se cache dans cette détermination de l'être comme présence, idéalité, possibilité absolue de répétition. La possibilité du signe est ce rapport à la mort. La détermination et l'effacement du signe dans la métaphysique est la dissimulation de ce rapport à la mort qui produisait pourtant la signification."
