"Noise Action: Earmeal" C53
(Dog Bless You Records)

Hluk Zivot = Noise Life

Not for the faint of heart, this is a collection of four harsh noise pieces recorded live at Noise Action’s Los Angeles Festival in 2015. Fairly academic, there’s scant if any harmonious tones found throughout the entire hour, but plenty of heavily processed static and pulses to go around. The zine it comes with is pretty rad, waxing philosophical about noise and its relation to politics:

“Noise itself constantly dissipates, as what is judged noise at one point is music or meaning to another. As well as this disruptive element, noise must also be thought of as constantly failing – failing to stay noise, as it becomes familiar, or acceptable practice.”
-Paul Hegarty
