Whitewater Orgasm - A Sad Way To Swallow (2010) [320]

Here I am, promoting another great album by my good friend. Some of you might've checked out his previous alum "Lust Year" which I posted earlier this year, depending on whether you liked that or were horribly disgusted (perhaps both) you might want to give this a try.

Whitewater Orgasm once again surprises us with some of the most offensive and extreme soundscapes of harsh noise. Albeit familiar to the previous album "Lust Year", "A Sad Way To Swallow" refuses to sink into the exact same formula, of just noise walls + feedback + mind-blowingly harsh vocals, instead this time features further experimentation into the realms of soundscapes and eerie sound manipulation.

1. Nothing Good Will Ever Happen Again (3:05)
2. Imaginary Hospital (3:00)
3. Not Much Left From What There Never Was (2:58)
4. Endjoy (2:08)
5. Layers of Supressed Dreams (5:14)
6. You Will Drown In White Water (3:06)
7. Drenched in the Substance of Pleasure (7:13)
8. Wet Glass Orgasm (2:41)
9. Among The Sick (5:18)
10. Sexual Frustration and Suicide (7:38)
11. White Beach And The Intentional Freezing To Death (6:59)

Dead Links & Mediafire

Mediafire has banned the account that hosted 90% of the mediafire links on this blog and taken down the files on that account. There is just no way I can realistically be arsed to upload all of those albums again and sort them into the right posts etc. So what I'm going to do I'm gonna try re.upload every album that was requested so far which is about 15-20 albums and then put them in this post. So if you requested an album to be reuploaded, just bookmark this post and I'll get it up here in time.

God - Possession

Erik Satie - 3 Gymnopédies and Other Works

Boredoms - Super Roots 10

Whitewater Orgasm - Lust Year

Family Underground - Future Bread

DNA - A Taste of DNA

Blurt - Bullets for You

Cluster - II

Boris - Smile Live

Giuseppe Ielasi - Aix

Chu Ishikawa - Tetsuo I-II OST (1998) [FLAC/V0]

While I at first listen was hoping for more than just a couple of tracks from the first movie. I remember the OST in the first movie being very memorable and somehow some years later I stumbled upon this and just had to check it out. I was slightly disappointed upon listening, most of the tracks are from the second movie, which is unfortunately not nearly as enchanting .

Tetsuo I is a great movie I'll recommend to anyone with an interest in awesome old school effects in a cyberpunkish aesthetic. If you haven't seen it already of course. Check out the awesome trailer on youtube.

Tetsuo I-II OST is still fairly decent if you can live with how cheesy it is at times. It's built around various percussion including metal percussion complemented with synths.




I plan on refreshing most dead links on the site within a short future. I've begun with refreshing the links for DNA on DNA / A Taste of DNA and When I Was Young. So far I've wrote down the following to be refreshed.

God - Possesion
Khanate - Clean hands go foul
Boredoms - Super roots 10
Giuseppe Ielasi - Aix
Kilimanjaro Darkjazz[...] - Mutations ep
Boris - Feedbacker
Nels Cline - Coward
Mars - The Complete Studio Recordings

If you know any other dead links on the blog, let me know either here in the comments or in the comments of the certain post. Thanks.

Astrid Monroe & Genesis P-Orridge - When I Was Young (2004) [V0]

Subtle, somewhat minimal trip-hop creates a stripped down atmosphere through repetitive drums, melodies and basslines. With Genesis' manipulated words echoing throughout the pieces. Although seemingly unspectacular, I quite fancy the eeriness that is prevalent throughout the record. I can't seem to help cycling back to this. I don't know how much creative input Genesis had in this but it seems to me to mostly be Astrid Monroe.

Boris - Smile Live At Wolf Creek (2008) [V2]

Status report: This place isn't dead just yet. I've been occupied with work. I was without a computer a while etc. A lot of different reasons contributed really. I haven't had as much time on my hands to find music, much less make posts about it here.

Since Pink and onward we've been tought to be skeptical of new Boris releases. As this came out after Smile (which wasn't bad, but not that great either) my hopes weren't too high. Listening to CD1 it's pretty much what I'd expect from such pink-ish tracks, it sounded similar to what I heard when I saw them live during the Smile tour, some nice high-pace moments but often annoying with Atsuo's outbursts of "wooh"s and "yeah"s.

The last 50 minutes of CD2 however (beginning with No Ones Grieve), was something completely different, it blew me away, I haven't heard such fabulous droning and noising from Boris in years. Sure, it should've been expected seeing as the last 3 tracks are the ones that make the studio version worthwhile as well. With this I think the Smile Live album actually outdoes both the Southern Lord studio and the Diwphalanx studio Smile, yet it's still remarkably unappreciated in comparison, which is why I wanted to post it here. Worth getting for CD2.

Whitewater Orgasm - Lust Year (2010) [320]

Lust Year is the most recent solo release by Santeri who runs Instrument Normal with me. In this album he delves into the abyss of harsh noise, ranging from wallnoise to ear piercing isolated feedback to delicious angsty screams. But it also delves into some ambient, sometimes buried under the noise, sometimes entirely by itself. This really is one of the most harsh creations I've ever heard and I'd recommend it to anyone who'd like such a thing.

Instrument Normal - Concerning The Nature Of The Universe (2009) [FLAC/320/V0/V2]

Hey. Some of you might already be familiar with this project, it's a project I run together with a Finnish friend of mine where we delve into the universe of noise, dark ambient and other forms of fucked up soundscapes and sonic experimentations. This was officially released last year somewhere in September, thought I'd eventually post it here as well.

I don't feel like talking too much about it since I feel as if I have to "whore myself out" in order to instill interest, but nonetheless.

Being completely instrumental it is a album that holds different meaning to both me and Santeri, I believe it could hold a meaning to you as well, therefore I don't want to spoil your own process of discovering this audial experience. However if you're interested, some of our thoughts concerning the piece are included in a .txt file.
