What? Dig the unprovoked hostility.

I'm just letting people know about a record I had pressed and is now for sale. A couple new tracks by one of the most influential noise artists of the 21st century. That ain't hype, champ. That's a fact.

I really like the crunchy sharpness these tracks have. Yeah, a bit more fi than older The Rita material

There is a certain tangent some recent wall recordings have followed towards that sterile and clean sound. This is one example of that. Ryan Bloomer's track on the recent Small Doses boxset is similarly cutting. It's a welcome sound to me.
Yeah, I sensed that "trend" as well... I think Vomir was the first "cleaner" sounding HNW artist...

I really like the clearer sound, as you can "catch" more of the different textures...
Check out The Rita - Anna Christie 3" (2005 Pitchphase) and the Haemorrhaging Fetus digital releases. I don't think vinyl and tape capture what HF does as well. If you're a noise vinyl person, you would definitely not be disappointed in his LP on SNSE. It's just that his 3"CDs realize a more full potential.

I'm a hi-fi junkie. I can certainly appreciate the different feel that mud and lo-fi create, but when skilled artists toy with details, like what can be more often found in crisp recordings, I really go for that direction. Sickness is another one. He, at times, sounds like he's surgically amputating the peaks of his distortion wavs, creating two pops where there was only one before. The audio illusions such detail can manifest is extraordinary. The minutia is much more affective to my ears. The fine particles are a barrage of burying pinpoint attacks rather than something more akin to a compression wav and thuddy.

Fix'derd...

Not that I am bashing it, just trying to make what I feel is a pretty important distinction...

I admit, I am not into HWN, and I don't really relate to the aesthetics described to me by most folks at all, but I don't want you to take that as an attack or sarcasm on my part...

I just don't think it's fair to assume everyone who likes Noise must love TR, you know? (I don't)

So this was a joke then? Ouch.

For my own curiosity, I'm honestly trying to gauge whether you two cannot actually hear a difference between those two tracks or not?
wallnuts are a joke yes.

Hype shit up I dont care.
the apex of douchebaggery is quickly being approached!

edit: the discussions here are so fucking provocative. good job!

These two sides present a concise and brutal attack by the master, as if the short format pushed him to pack each track with all the highlight elements typically spread out over longer form The Rita recordings. Hits hard, hits fast.

SNSE is proud to present this large-hole 7" wrapped in a twelve page booklet adorned with not-nice artwork culled from McKinlay's massive personal collection as well as drawings inked by the man himself.
see, i think the problem here is that the above description is probably the best part of the whole experience of the project, the next best part being the booklet which is "not-nice artwork"(available everywhere, and better, i guarantee), and then the owning of a limited release piece of vinyl...

some people might consider that akin to a 'pet rock', the value is in the status that the buyer believes they are buying by owning the product...

if this was the first time anyone had heard HWN, then it might be considered a landmark release, but its not, so it seems kind of tired...

of course, there are new kids stumbling onto 'the scene' everyday that never got a chance to have a record such as this, and maybe their friends will be aghast at the horrible sound it makes, and that will engourge their ego a little...

still, more appropriate ad copy for this kind of product might read:

to engage in provocative discussion about wall noise seems akin to masturbating without finishing, whats the point?, what do you expect to glean from such musings?, maybe you should join a book club for that...

the statement simply reeks of $10 ho-baggery...

noise genres are just stupid clubs that you have to limit your creativity to be a part of.

wanna make harsh walls? better be recording onto a clipped out tape deck!

You'd imagine that noise, which is pretty much an anything-goes thing, wouldn't have styles or genres. For me, it kind of defeats the purpose as I see it.

People on the noise boards sure do get upset when someone has the audacity to release a noise record.

That's because there's no need to release anymore noise and ask people to pay real money for it. I could give away the socks i don't wear anymore for this noise, not the money i need to pay the internet and bash those who ask people to pay real money for HARSH WALL NOISE.
