TEETH COLLECTION "Sloth Movement" (Peasant Magik)

Teeth Collection is the alias of one Matthew Reis who also runs a label from Dayton, OH called Epicene. "Sloth Movement" offers a slew of obscure and dark electronics, low end crunch and assorted synthesizer material. A foreboding, claustrophobic touch seeps through everything. The first listen seemed drawn out, but on repeated plays the variety grows on you. The heavily atmospheric starter on side A is a favorite, featuring eerie and somber drones that unexpectedly jump to higher frequencies only to crash immediately back into the muck. On the flip, loud metallic scrapes (prepared guitar?) make way for an echo heavy oscillation jam and a harsh, psychedelic conclusion. The clouded industrial landscape on the cover sums it up pretty well. Edition of 50.
