mt028 and mt029 header

Hello everyone! Here’s a doozy of an update for you.  TWO new releases as well as “this machine…” shirts reprinted and in more sizes (XS and XL)!

mt028- RIEN “the grey tape” c40
the sound of implosion, of sound eating itself. we hear what is left behind.
stellar static noise (and sub sonic) minimalism from this prolific swedish provocateur.

mt029- VERHALTEN “corrupted structures v.2” c60
Second in a continuing series of releases for Verhalten. Distorted rhythms are woven with crackling walls of noise and syncopated sine waves pushing the further reaches of the audio spectrum. An exercise in tonality, texture and repetition. A minimalist exploration of the structures humanity creates to its own detriment.

Cassettes, downloads and shirts are all available now from Modern Tapes.

artist copies are enroute and will be available at live performances and online from them soonly.

 

VOLHNN “artefact” and UNSER VERHÄNGNES “Peace Is A Lasting Legacy When The Earth Is A Silent Grave” available now.

After much waiting and a couple delays the new Volhnn and Unser Verhängnis tapes are available.

mt023 Volhnn “artefact” c60 limited edition of 15
cold and bleak ambient noise wall project of this French provocateur, otherwise known by his Chier alias.

mt024 Unser Verhängnis “Peace Is A Lasting Legacy When The Earth Is A Silent Grave” 2xc60 limited edition of 15
Grim, ambient noise walls for the contemplation of our undoing. double cassette from this project of the ever prolific Peter Keller aka Condo Horro.

packaged in aluminum boxes with photocopied artwork and insert along with a download code and “this machine kills fascists” sticker.

more in the pipeline for 2018

THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS

Hey good people of the internet, i made some shirts and stickers for us electronic music/modular nrrrds out there. they express a sentiment i adapted from Woody Guthrie’s guitar back in 1941 when he was singing protest songs against wealthy and racist americans not seeming to have any problem with what was happening in Germany/Europe at the time. Feel free to draw parallels without hyperbole, please.

The money made from selling said shirts and stickers are going to Life After Hate, an organization that provides an exit strategy for people who are involved in many of the white supremacist subcultures in the US, they are the only non-profit i could find who does this. good for them.

Life After Hate

 

Verhalten- west coast us tour, new video and 12″ vinyl release of “Forgiveness”

On March 31 Verhalten returns with “Forgiveness” a collection of noise laced industrial tracks based around rhythm and slow melody. Well, underneath the membrane of static and feedback that is.  This is the 12″ vinyl edition of the cassette ep released in early 2017 that is already out of print.

The release is accompanied by a short tour of the west coast from March 31-April 09 and the release of a video for the track “Pictures Drawn In Water”.  A minimalist short film of natural white noise photographed while on tour in the Czech Republic, Germany and Iceland in February of 2017.

Tour dates below the video.
