UVB-76 and Stirrings Still to collaborate on split cassette

16996613_1637252082971301_197067496_nBritish noise combos UVB-76 and Stirrings Still are bound together en masse on a new split cassette tape, that will see the light of day via Smithsfoodgroup DIY on March 10th 2017. This release comes with a handmade magazine and is limited to 30 copies.

On UVB-76’s “the wetness of summer’s ghost. Spring’s black wings spread under a dying sun” Laurence Taylor has enlisted the assistance of friends to read aloud an original passage of prose, the multitude of voices illustrating that our suffering is not special, but that we are not alone. This is a long-form composition by UVB-76 which draws influence from all areas of contemporary noise and electronic music, from warm melancholic synth loops, through droning layers of static, to aggressive industrial.

On the flipside, “it will always follow me” is the first offering from Stirrings Still. A track for the thoughts that haunt, the ones that never leave before tearing you to shreds, a track for the disintegration and repetition it leaves in its wake; crippling and emetic. Working alongside Knifedoutexistence, the track is a composition of fragmentary thoughts accompanied by a wall of punishing noise that suppresses as much as it attacks.
