cruel

Fresh off the release of their latest album Cruel The Present Moment contributes to the new edition of the WAVcast series with an eclectic post punk ebm industrial blend quenching our thirst for transgressive music… with a few synth classics mixed in for good measure.


Nowhere

Jason Snell aka bombardier is an electronic musician and multimedia artist with over 50 vinyl and CD releases since 1998. Discovered by Kid 606 in San Francisco, Snell’s first album was Violence, a full length mix CD of original material on Vinyl Communications, one of the most well respected hardcore labels in the world.

With the release of “Nowhere”, Bombardier demonstrates a calculated sound design which is incarnated from hardcore origins . Within the tracks “Hidden Razor”, “Unidentified”, and “VFM”,  each sound and dynamic are meticulously positioned to reach your senses in between every intervaled beat. Creative interpretations of these original compositions are provided by Blac Kolor, Mangadrive, and D/SIR and shape this diverse sampler.

Roger

Roger O’Donnell (The Cure/Solo) presents a mix of electronic music with soul in WAVcast 8.  These personal selections demonstrate lush ambient sounds and carefully constructed melodies which quite understandably underline Roger’s musical world.

future
Skeleton Hands offers up “I Was In The Future Yesterday” in our WAVcast section.”The title is an obvious reference to the song “time travel” by the band blouse. Here though it is taken out of context and used as a reference to the current state of the music industry. Everything has gone digital, whether an iTunes download or a stream from a cloud somewhere but people are missing what’s tangible. They miss liner notes, they miss artwork, they miss making mixes for their friends (whether on CD or cassette). Therefore people are gravitating more towards vinyl and even cassette. That being said, I wanted to merge the two worlds. I wanted to give the illusion of something tangible even though this will be heard on soundcloud or some form of digital music player. in the middle of the mix you can hear someone flipping the tape over. Even the first track has a warble to it as if it were recorded onto tape and then stored in a closet somewhere for decades. The opening track is from the 60’s even, thus solidifying that illusion and telling a story without explaining verbatim. by the second track the warble blends in with the clarity of digital. But the tape hiss can be heard throughout the entirety of the mix. Even though some of these tracks may be new to listeners, I wanted to give them a familiarity. And for posterity I should note that none of the music on the mix was ever actually recorded to tape. It is all fabricated. an experiment in juxtaposition.
enjoy.

CERVELLO ELETTRONICO’s new album “Anima Meccanica” will be released 21st October 2013 on HANDS.

CERVELLO ELETTRONICO, another well established act since 2001, joins HANDS and presents his own brand of industrial-tinged techno on the 13 tracks of “Anima Meccanica” – an idiosyncratic blend of atmospheric backdrops, occasional distortion, tempting beats and apt quotations from electronic music history. The album glistens with polished production value and will prove a gadget suited for all intents and purposes in an electronic household.

1. Last Words
2. Bad Ground
3. Vertebrae
4. Instant Trauma
5. Impact
6. She’s Got Damage
7. Down the Line
