The recent release by Thirteen Hurts on NO PART OF IT was aired on the excellent and carefully curated WORDS ON SOUNDS podcast, alongside a diverse array of creative sounds by Paperbark, Sex Funeral, Arve Henriksen & Teun Verbrugen, and Hillboggle (Headboggle and his father!), among many others! Thanks Scott! A
A piece from the new BLOOD RHYTHMS release, Heuristics, was aired on Wm. Berger's My Castle of Quiet Radio Show (WFMU), it is the final track on the album, and it's an honor to have it finish out the show, as it is 20 minutes long or so. We think it's worth it. Wm. also played material by a frequent collaborator, Michael Krause (Death Factory), in his lesser known Morlokk project, as well as Guru Guru, Renegade Soundwave, the collaborative project of Marc Hurtado (Etant Donnes) with Alan Vega (Suicide), Butthole Surfers, and plenty of black metal and dark ambient vibes as usual. Thanks as always to Mr. Berger!
....there is certainly enough diversity of material to make the experience interesting. For the artist in process, this release is an excellent form of process documentation and audio experimentation. Releases like this one, while not always the most repeatable, are certainly some of the more interesting ones to discover. Any artist or band can make music you enjoy, but oftentimes the experience of going through the stages of development and experimentation can be much more rewarding. The time spent listening in is at least time well spent.
