Even though Ben Lukas Boysen's participation to the opening sequence to 2014's OFFF Mexico edition might not surprise us anymore, it is still a splendid score that this musician created this year. You can watch (and listen to) the resulting thing over there and below. Make sure to turn the volume up.
There are many good things to like about fans of industrial music, one of them being their dedication. We recently wrote about somebody who videotaped a full concert by Monolog at this year's Schlagstrom festival, which is already quite a feat (as we would personally rather dance and enjoy the show than stay behind a camera). This "Oppatria" Youtube user seems to be on a roll, as he comes today with a full-duration recording of the show that Mobthrow played two days ago at a Bassbeben event in Bielefeld.
Detritus's fifth and most recent album, "The Very Idea" (adn177) is still very fresh, having been released only a few months ago. And yet David Dando-Moore (pictured above playing in Rotterdam late last year) is already back behind his machines.
Below (and here) is a rough, first draft of a new Detritus track, so far called "Approach". Not only does it provide us a glimpse at where Detritus might go in the future, but also enables to get an idea of how his material evolves such a draft to a finalized album such as "The Very Idea".
Friday Freebie / Ad Noiseam Podcast: we keep on with our series of free podcasts which started early this year with 2methyl, followed in the Spring by Detritus, with a new, hour-long mix by Tapage. The third episode of Ad Noiseam's new podcast series celebrates his latest album, "Eight" (adn180, released on Ad Noiseam in June 2014). As usual with this series, Tapage goes beyond his own tracks in this mix and pays homage to other musicians who have had an influence on his art.
Though we have always tried to make every Ad Noiseam releases as easily available as possible, embracing many formats, re-pressing albums and distributing music all over the world, some (a major part, actually) of the music we have released is not available anymore, or at least not on all formats. Not being able (financially and logistically) to constantly re-press every album and have it on stock, we find ourselves forced to disappoint some of you who ask for the availability of some of our oldest or most successful releases.
Today brings good news to a happy few, then. We've been returned unsold stock from one of our distributors, and have a handful of copies of some till-now out of print releases available again in the online store. Quantities are very limited (ranging from one till five copies), we stronglly recommend that you act fast to secure your copies of these CD. No re-press is planned of any of these items, and we have no idea whether we will be returned any copies again. What we got today is:
Friday Freebie: Ad Noiseam's Monolog took part in Berlin's yearly industrial Schlagstrom fest last week, keeping on with a festival tour which has lead him to play on such prestigious stages as Maschinenfest's and Fusion's. The room might have been heavily filled with smoke, as pictured above, but the sound was clear and powerful for this first gig by Monolog since he put the finishing touches to his next album, "Merge" (adn178), which will be released soon on Ad Noiseam (more about this in the coming days).
