|million year spree lp (kye 14)|
million year spree is the first in an occasional series of shared lps where two like-minded souls meet under one umbrella. hamilton, ontario's fossils have long been the reigning kings of no-fi acoustic sewage, producing an endless stream of outstandingly dire handcut confusion. calfornia's darksmith came to public attention last year via their peerless total vacuum lp (hanson). wilting electronics, floppy turntableism and sun-baked cassette protocol are combined and destroyed in a claustrophobic void. with additional mixing by graham lambkin and mastering by jason lescalleet million year spree is the last word on being and nothingness.
hand-numbered edition of 400.
