We’re excited to released an album by The Doll. The Doll has been making no-fi sounds since 2004. She likes to augment her vocals with contact mics, balloons, magnetic tape, percussion junk, garbage from the side of the road, horns, household appliances, a T-Pain mic, & field recordings. She enjoys Cool Edit Pro on an XP craptop.
The Doll spent a year exploring the inner noiselife of the hand dryers and air blades that dwell in castles, cathedrals, pubs, venues, museums etc. Hand Dryer Solos is made from a selection of live recordings performed in public bathrooms for unsuspecting members of the No Audience Overground.
Recorded on a phone in the toilets of Wales and England, with a splash of Spain, Portugal & Romania for good measure.
Release of "World's Worst Bootlegs 2011-2017" by Tangent
A new age monster is born in a playground. Before the children and before the weather an assemblage was recorded. Two brothers had a dialog that sounded like a monologue. Nobody knows what happened to the number six. One xylophone and three metal flowers, occasionally three analog tone generators we found in the street. One brother calls another. Van, garage, and hotel room studios. Press rewind.
A little different to their previous albums with us, but still with their distinctive aesthetic.
Unknown Rockstar hooks up with the drone-like warmth of the precious two works, surprisingly hooking onto it so well that it feels as if these artists connected somehow, as if they are relatives, family or perhaps music making aliens that have come from a similar root. The work here ‘temporary accommodation’ is severely warm and beautiful, a place that might be temporarily but feels as if we could hang in there forever.
