….and we’re back. We take a slightly different approach this time around and review two records by the same artist, Machinefabriek. One we love, while the other causes a little bit debate. Lastly, we get a little bit bummed out about the new record from Mika Vainio’s Ø project.

It’s a mini episode! We wanted to continue our discussion about the experimental music scene in Australia, so in this special episode we’re digging back into Sabbatical Records‘ 2011 release “Knife Culture: Buried Melbourne.” This double CD compilation highlights some fine Australian noise. Take a listen to our thoughts on it, the go and buy it!

A combination of viruses and tropical holidays has kept us away from the mics, but we’re back! On episode 15 of The Antidote we bang on about the latest from Finnish electronic whiz Mika Vainio, some throwback hardcore UK trash rock in the shape of Dethscalator and a beyond the avant grade record from Korean cellist Okkyung Lee.

Sorry for the break in transmission peeps, but life gets in the way sometimes. This episode we talk about another Kevin Drumm reissue for 2013 called Purge which David says is his favourite wall-of-noise record of all time!! Plus, the not-so-new release from England’s the Hacker Farm which somehow leads us into reminiscing about the Smashing Pumpkins (!). We take listen to some local experimental music for the first time on The Antidote, shame on us, when we chat about the third volume in Iceage Productions’ The Shape of Noise compilation which features artists based in Melbourne, Australia.

It’s a mixed bag on this episode. The new one from Wolf Eyes, No Answer: Lower Floors leaves us wondering whether the collective are more interested in their solo projects at the moment, while Transparent Body’s drone release out on Textural Records also leaves us a little cold. But we save the best for last, and gush over Excavation, the frightening new record from The Haxan Cloak.

This time around Dave and Ingmar take a listen to the new Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement reissue called Black Magic Cannot Cross Water, the new ‘electronic behemoth’ from The Knife and also Cthulhu Detonator‘s Infernal Machines, a stunning release from the far reaches of Canada BC.
Holy sheet, it’s been six weeks since we put out an episode! Give us a break, we’re lazy Australians. This time around we take a look at the kick ass new record from Hey Colossus, out on Mie Music. Doomy, sludgey, psychedelic goodness! We also check out a re-release of Aaron Dilloway & Kevin Drumm’s monstrous 2002 collaboration I Drink your Skin. And we wrap it all up with Prurient’s latest sleazy technoid record, out on Blackest ever Black.
Not three, but four reviews this time around. OK, one of them happens to be a split record but as far as we’re concerned that means there’s a bonus review. We debate the new Dead C / Rangda split out on Bada Bing records and speculate about Kevin Drumm wanting to disturb people’s psyche on his mammoth, minimalist drone release Tannenbaum. And, we also talk about a mysterious release by The Glittering Hand.

Belated Happy New Year and all that crap. We’re back and getting noisy for 2013!
This time ’round we listen to and discuss the latest mind fuck from Hair Police; we parlay about the Pan label’s recent offering from Jar Moff and, last but not least we pontificate on a little record called Show ’em the Door by Joseph Hammer and Jason Crumer.
We’re kicking off 2013 with a mini episode aimed squarely at those folks new to the world of noise and experimental music, but sure to be enjoyed by aficionados as well. It’s the Antidote Podcast’s Beginner’s Guide to Merzbow!
Masami Akita’s Merzbow project has been going for more than thirty years and spans upwards of 500 releases. Considered by many as the ‘father’ (godfather?) of contemporary noise music, the Merzbow catalogue can be a tough thing to tackle. Wanna check out some Merzbow but don’t know where to start? In this 20 minute episode we discuss which Merzbow records are ideal for first time listeners, and also (attempt to) choose our favourite in his discography.
