When I started doing the label this was what I always intended it to be: releasing great music by people from around here who need to be heard! Well, here ya go!
This CD combines two of Glasgow's best experimental bands, neither of which really seem to get the credit or attention they deserve. John Comar AKA Noma has been wowing audiences for a few years now with his constantly changing live sets, a slew of CDr releases on various labels, and as an auxilliary member of metal powerhouse Black Sun, but this is his first "proper" CD release. He takes on two tracks here, the first is a slowly-building tone-fest. Very ambient, and hauntingly beautiful...bascially what Noma does best. Next track "Amusia" is a little atypical of what most people will expect. Imposing thuds are interjected by what sounds like some form of screeching metallic machine being thrown down some stairs, electronic blasts. Surreal, bizarre, unpredictable....very Noma.
This is only the second ever release by Adam Cresser's Rejectamenta, and his one track here, "SSilence" is a follow-up to his CDr on At War from a couple of years ago entitles SServant. This couldn't be any further away from silence, total overload of a billion circuit-bent instruments all melded together into one
massive orchestral binary cacophany. Lovely hooks come here and there, the whole thing takes a few listens just to figure out what the hell is going on, great stuff.
