The CD version of the House of Low Culture album "Poisoned Soil" album is now available for order via the Feral Pig and SIGE webstores. Visit here for further details. A big thanks to Sub Rosa for their support in putting out this record - you can visit their site for more info on the release here. They have some sound clips up, and there's another more extended clip in an older post below this one. Here and here are some recent reviews for the album as well. The 2xLP version on Taiga Records is still in the works with an expected release date of early January.

Thank you.

The collaboration with William Fowler Collins is now underway. Over a four day session in WA earlier this month, we worked on a number of foundational pieces with the intent of going back to these raw recordings later and building up finished tracks around them. I have no idea how long it will take us to finish an album from this point, but the initial results are promising and we're both feeling pretty excited and motivated by the results. In the meantime, I highly recommend checking out William's new album "The Resurrections Unseen".

Also: the Pyramids/Horseback album (for which I did some artwork and mixing), is coming out this Friday. Foxy Digitalis posted a nice review of the album here. Here is a recent interview I did with a Mexican website La Hoja de Arena - thanks to Alfredo Gallardo Avila for this one... They also did a full feature on a select group of Mexican bands which you can access here.

Rattling the leaves off the trees: Skepticism "Ethere", Pete Swanson "I Don't Rock at All", Vatican Shadow "Pakistan Military Academy", SQRM "Rodeo", Cindy Talk "Hold Everything Dear", Thou/Mohoram Atta - split, Hive Mind "Tunnel Birth", etc....

Here are some clips from the forthcoming albums by Jodis and House of Low Culture. The House of Low Culture album is delayed (again), but is coming out sometime before the end of the year (CD on Sub Rosa, 2xLP on Taiga). Jodis album will hopefully be out by early 2012. In the meantime, enjoy the music....

...I've been enjoying: Caspar Brötzmann Massaker "Koksofen", William Fowler Collins/Gog "Malpais", Fovea Hex "Here is Where We Used to Sing", Hooded Menace "Never Cross the Dead", Aluk Todolo "Ordre", Kreng "Grimoire", etc
