... thanks for everyone's patience during the move !!! while it did take about a week longer than scheduled to get even the most basic elements of mms up & running again (i.e. records back on the shelves [in order !!!] ; packing & shipping bench upright & operational) we can safely say that things are finally getting back to normal around here ...

... we're just about caught up with invoicing & shipping orders placed during our closure & we've started opening up the dozens of boxes of new titles that arrived in our absence, updating the site here to show all of the new arrival & restock activities over the past few weeks (scanner & stereo are still boxed up, so full workups are still pending) ...

... as a token of appreciation to everyone that helped us out by placing a "closeout" order in the days leading up to the move (and due to a number of requests for more time to properly investigate / strategize a more thorough sweep of the dwindling list of titles on offer) i've extended the exhaustive "closeoupacolypse" one final time until the end of the spring ; this should afford everyone the proper resources to make their final selections ...

july 2013 release ; ... long-awaited follow-up to nate’s “stay asleep” lp for nna (2009) beginning a new trilogy of assimilated squawks and lumbering, rubato iterations of electronic dread ...

... the trilogy being some of my favorite electronic music of the last few years, this re-orchestrated approach to “liveelectronics is a major cause célebre, positing an even more fleshed-out and gorgeously arranged suite of music that’s ultimately miles away from the nearest easily-genre-ghetto-ized style, choosing to simply exist as it does ... highly recommended !!!

nna059: nate young-regression blinding confusion lp

over the past few years, iconic noise artist nate young has been carefully crafting his own signature solo sound, as evidenced through his progressive recordings and performances with american experimental music staples such as wolf eyes, stare case, demons, and moon pool & dead band.

after the completion of his recent regression trilogy (part one being the self-titled disc on ideal in 2009; 2011 s stay asleep lp on nna as part two; and part three other days on japanese label rockatansky in 2012), young begins a new chapter in his personal sound world, and it is perhaps his biggest leap forward musically thus far.

regression blinding confusion enters a new era, retaining the techniques and studies from his previous work and raising them to new levels. intense compositional building and structure seep through each track, traversing new ground melodically while still upholding nate’s patented over-bearing weight of dread and slow-burning darkness at all the right moments.

deep, percussive brutality and pulsing neurosis mesh with somber burial hymns, held together by young’s technical prowess and mastery of his chosen gear. each frequency is given it’s own unique role and characteristic voice, deeply chilled by the arid space of decay via tape manipulation / disintegration, howling its way through the grooves of the record like a cold wind of dead space that billows throughout, unrelenting.

atonal, morphing, and modulating bass lines pulse and plod their way through, like the unseen presence of the undead ascending a creaking stairway, leading upwards toward a nebulous void. this establishes a truly horrific atmosphere while honoring primitive technology, refined with a thick dose of originality.

self-recorded at burning log studios and m.u.g. in young’s native zone of detroit, michigan, combined with high definition mastering and cutting by lupo at calyx in berlin, germany, make blinding confusion the defining artifact by one of the united states’ most talented voices in noise and experimental music.

november 2011 release ; ... totally incredible set of subterranean electronic anti-gloss from wolf eyes / demonsnate young, perfectly inhabiting that exact alien landscape pictured on so many nik raicevic album covers while simultaneously keeping a foot in 80’s horror film sound-design (the first track alone ; the little scratchy noises the graemlins in phantasm make, the woozy synth squee from so many charles / richard band flicks, and of course the pitched-noise terminator wooble) ; all while not specifically referencing anything other than his own twisted vision ...

nna039: nate young "stay asleep: regression vol. 2" lp

it's an honor for us to present the latest solo recording from nate young, founding member of michigan noise legends wolf eyes. this record represents a new direction for young, as he deviates from trademark aggressive murk-and-misery sounds of his previous works, and instead opts for a queasy, subdued zombie lullaby consisting of bizarre rhythms, synthetic melodies, and almost gamelan-sounding ritual sleepwalking. featuring an epic closer with contributions from past & present wolf eyes members aaron dilloway and john olson. this is a record to sit and get absorbed in, a non-linear travel through a different place altogether.

mastered by lupo at dubplates & mastering in berlin.

fourteen tracks (the extras are just short silence-bumpers) for lathe cuts, tape loops, electronics, synthesizer”, “recorded december 2011 - january 2012 at burning log” ; a mix of short tape-munge studies & dissipated synth-scratchings (ala the highly touted “vol. 2”) this is the ultimate catch-all conclusion of nate’s recent wide-net approach to contemporary sound ...
no label press release...

the last volume in the regression from nate young. the sound all ascetic that brings high voltage tension behind full of dead asleep ambience. apocalyptic, hypnotic and also i can tell a zen buddism attitude. this is a slow heavy lethal injection from him.


avowed nate young fiends demdike stare have trapped the wolf eyes lynchpin's stunning third regression volume for a necessary vinyl edition on their eponymous label. other days represents young's most labyrinthine incursion into the nether zone between waking life and nightmarish, cryptographic noise. the recordings stem from an exhibition of lathe-cut etchings and paintings by young and his wife, alivia zivich, installed at tokyo's haus gallery. the process involved designing original images for 22 8" x 8" pieces of acrylic, which in turn inspired 22 audio compositions which were then lathe-cut into the acrylic. the process of lathe-cutting transformed the audio itself, and vice-versa with the original images, resulting in a constant mutation between sound and image with no end in sight. the process ended abruptly, with young and zivich surrendering to rest or sleep.

in key with the rest of the series, regression vol. 3 (other days) irreversibly ruptures or at least corrupts the liminal boundaries of its infected victims with lynch-ian aptitude. dragged down to young's beta pitch we become petrified, sleep-paralyzed witnesses to possessed hallucinations. his drums and tape-stretched drones land in time-dilating polymetric patterns, again uncannily recalling the timbre of vintage photek drums -- struck objects, metallic gongs and loose-skinned bass -- only strung-out like the sounds of morphine-dosed poltergeist and caterwauling harpies. we could say the secret lies in his sense of deferred anticipation, but then it wouldn't be a secret, yet there's something so ill and unquantifiable about his sense of timing that's just dangerously affective.
