Bruce Ditmas - Yellow (1977) (LP)

Bruce Ditmas
Yellow (LP) (1977, Wizard Records)

"Spaced out, psychotronic, computer-glitch, free jazz from the depths of the groovy Universe; wow what a mouth full of knuckles! Bruce Ditmas is an American jazz drummer who began experimenting w/ drum machines during solo performances in the 1970's. The results are wholly intoxicating so dig it sweet babes, by the gallon!" - DD

RE-POST: Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited (1989)

Simply Saucer
Cyborgs Revisited (1989, Fist Puppet)

"Simply put, this is fucking super rad! It's garage-rock-psychedelic-Floydian-Velvets with a twist of Modern Lovers. The song Bullet Proof Nothing will make you wish you were this fucking cool! Get it, love it, obsess over it. Probably one of the best Canadian bands ever, definitely one of the best Canadian albums!" - DD

RE-POST: Los Saicos - ¡Demolición! The Complete Recordings (2010) (6x 7")

Los Saicos
¡Demolición! The Complete Recordings (6x 7") (2010, Munster Records)

"Gravelly, raucous and super cool, this is garage surf at it's finest. Peruvian rockers who listened to British Invasion types, Los Saicos were apparently oblivious to the harsher garage rock and surf sounds of the mid 60's that they came to mirror. Some seriously grooved out tunes here, so dig in and chew it primitive folks!" - DD

CM von Hausswolff ‎– 800,000 Seconds In Harar (2011)
CM von Hausswolff
800,000 Seconds In Harar (2011, Touch)

"In this sprawling and precise piece sound artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff delivers a subtle yet monumental drone capable of stifling even the most eager unease, or perhaps fortifying it. For a closer look at the construction and concepts behind the album, which I think only add to it's enjoyment, I suggest looking at Touch's page for the release. It's chock full of reviews and information. No need to chew this one kiddies, simply swallow creamy smooth." - DD

The Trash Company - Earle Hotel Tapes 1979-1993 (2012) (LP)
The Trash Company
Earle Hotel Tapes 1979-1993 (LP) (2012, PPU / Steady Sounds)

"PPU have a tendency to kill it pretty frequently with their releases. Most of what I get into from them is stuff I've never heard of before, and I love it. TTC is no exception; this is some seriously grooved out, lo-fi-beef saucey, funkadelic, r&b-punk rockery so dig into it warm & fuzzy you silly ass beaches." - DD

Wold ‎– Freermasonry (2011)
Freermasonry (2011, Profound Lore Records)

"Bssshhhhhhhere is some more incredible and caustic fuzz courtesy of Canada's own, Wold. This is my favourite of theirs (though I haven't spent enough time absorbing their last album) and highly recommend it for anyone into noise, black metal, harsh sounds and discordant rhythms. Chew the gristle you fugly dugs!" - DD
