dual - caste
Brand new, available on cd : comprised of 6 tracks over 48 minutes this is an accomplished release of pure unfettered energy bursting to the seams. Forever bringing the sounds clearer to the front and then demolishing into pure nothing. Crackling interference and bubbling rhythms compound from a foundation built of syncopated static and whispers leaving the spinning clicks and tones to gyre and tumble beneath.

dual - klanik / 4tH

Brand new and available now on Drone Records as part of their 7" subscription series of vinyl only releases. black vinyl, white printed inlays, handmade white covers by Dual.

The first track Klanik maintains the familiar cycling guitar flow and repetition as well as introducing real percussive guitars that play like 'drums' and bring another dimension to the already heavily treated sound. This moves around within a frame of still playing but also accompanying the machines with rigorous strength and depth that hints at more to come...4tH on the other hand takes a leaf from the old school of thought of throwing everything and the kitchen sink in, see what happens, then subtract and manipulate until left with enough to work on as a 'canvas' thats not quite blank, but yet usable as an official starting point. Careering strands of glassish shards taken out of the frame and into a network of missed backwards stutterring.
