New 3"cdr - Slow Listener / 14,000,000,000,000

Slow Listener / 14,000,000,000,000
Split 3” Cdr
Edition of 60 copies

There’s been a deficit of Slow Listener releases as of late, so this 3” split on the Bells Hill imprint will be welcome news. Here, Brighton’s Robin Dickinson (he’s Slow Listener btw) steers his music into fifteen minutes of tailored synth abstraction. The edges of “If At First, Don't Succeed” gleam through the roughened tones, and packs much more of a human touch than much of the currently feted drone regurgitators of the magazine and mail-order land.

The other artist here is the currently anonymous 14,000,000,000,000 (that should be billion, unless I’ve fucked reading his/her/their emails and missed out some zeroes) who deal/s in a ragged sampleadelic sea journey through horns, chimes and octopi percussion. Nice title too, try “Fleet Of Burmese Freighters In Oceanic Death Crawl Towards Dragon Funeral” in your pipe.

Basillica 'The Correct Ritual' BH 015

New Bells Hill tape out now.

Basillica is the solo path of Mike Vest, perhaps currently better known as a founding member of both the doomer crew that is Bong* and the psychedelicist rock trio Lobster Priest**. “The Correct Ritual” is a somewhere-fidelity reality/unreality influenced soulmanifest collection that lightly references the tradition of Matthew Bower’s onemangoneheavenwards projects. This is no mere reiteration of other’s ideas though, Basillica decant a heavy aural imagery of Anatolia/Hindi temple guitar, tape fug and wah-wah.

In an edition of sixty c90 Purple tapes, thirty in ‘Betty Davis Style’ cover and thirty in ‘Go Bosch Style’ cover. Thujone not included.

*debut vinyl out now on Heidenwut Productions - you need it.

**4 CDR set out now on Fuckin’ Amateurs – you need that too.
