Episode 23: Machinefabriek x 2 and Ø (Mika Vainio)

….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.

Episode 10 – Wolf Eyes, Transparent Body and The Haxan Cloak

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.

Get episode 10 over at iTunes, or listen right here.

Episode 7 – Kevin Drumm, The Dead C, Rangda and The Glittering Hand

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.

Episode 5 – The Beginner’s Guide to Merzbow

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. Head over to iTunes and subscribe to The Antidote or listen to episode 5 now

Our picks for the best Merzbow records for beginners include Merzbear, Merzbeat, Merzzow and Yoshinotsune.

Check out more of David’s thoughts on Merzbow at Ducks Battle Satan
