TORBA - untitled (3") - After a ton of splits with the likes of Vomir, Luca Sigurtà, Zebra Mu and other fine noisy acts, our Berlin-based friend Mauro Diciocia and his hyper-pitched "harshdrone" project Torba gives us a taste of his always-evolving genius...Last spring we also shared a couple of gigs together here in Italy, and was good to see him working hard behind his mixer. This baby consists of a deep declaration of love for VHS: we got two compositions, originating from Werner Herzog's and Carmelo Bene's VHS samples and loops, which seems to generate a never-explored colorless parallel dimension. Lo-fi rumbling utter emptyness.
25 copies . B/W cover , plastic case and black insert.
CALIGINE / GELBA - split (C50) : side A is a glorious collection of three guitar/vocals songs by Gabriele De Seta, aka Caligine, a good friend who lives in China , and runs the incredible label Monstresparexcess... these some tracks were recorded in 2012, his deep voice filling some structured harmonic guitar lines... gentle types are not for the let-it-go-go ones...
Other side is another two-tracks-obliteration party by yours truly Gelba: gentle pastoral landscapes being tortured and disfigured by hyper-slowly saturations, then you'll experience some nightmarish field recs degrading into a single Basinski-like final loop...Nihil obstat quominus imprimatur.
33 copies , blue tape into a carboard case + insert.
