Muennich "rugged" cs
So often when young noise acts start out their first few endeavors show a lack of restraint. They have amassed their pedals and synths and have decided to just do everything all the time. Probably because it's fun but it is not really fun to listen to. Meunnich is all about restraint. Each track on this cassette ends in a furious cacophony but they each start with the slightest sound. A buzzing or maybe a quiet drone then another slight sound lays on top of that and lingers long enough for you to hear them work together. Then another layer and another layer until it builds into a controlled but immense mountain of chaos. It's pretty impressive work from this German artist. Simple black and white packaging with a piece of actual granite inside. LImited to 57 copies.
