8HourAnimal, NYC's enigmatic purveyor of a certain brand of hard-to-pigeonhole psychedelic industrial noise, released his debut album ‘Pejorative’ as a cassette on Birth Control Productions in late 2019. Now our small guerrilla operation is proud to announce the release of the artist’s sophomore recording, ‘Armsanxhor’.
This 70-minute work consists of two long tracks recorded in early 2020. Less anguished and claustrophobic than ‘Pejorative’, but just as full of brown acid, these expansive sessions invite comparisons to the 1970s industrial midwifery of Throbbing Gristle or SPK. We also detect traces of the esoteric guitar-noise styles advanced by such “cult” projects as Uncommunity, Skullflower, Gog, Pacific 231 and Maeror Tri. Astute listeners may detect scrambled notes of krautrock and shoegaze in the sounds also.
Insistent machine rhythms, keening electric feedback, alienating synthesizer drones, and freakishly beautiful textural clashes dominate this layered and immersive excursion into sonic roughness. A mordant sense of compositional humour belies the intensity and knack that clearly went into the creation of this passionate industrial document, a release that stands proudly with one foot in the past of ‘noise’ and one in its future.
8HourAnimal’s ‘Armsanxhor’ is strictly limited to 50 copies on pro-duped black C90 tapes, with one track per side. Includes hand-numbered, pro-printed J cards.
Tapes are €5 or $6US each.
