Cruudeuces--Various Skin Figurines c30 (Skell 007)
Cruudeuces' Nathaniel Brennan is a conjurer; utilizing tapes, percussion, clarinet, and various bits of electromagnetic interference, he creates cleverly detailed and utterly bleak zones of sound. After a slew of releases on labels like Kimberly Dawn, Tape Drift, his own Ghetto Naturalist Series imprint, and Existential Cloth, Brennan has a large and impressive body of work. On Various Skin Figurines, he uses a subtle palette, with thick and crunchy low-end tones balanced by swirling clouds of tape noise and darkness--the results are astounding. So happy to put this one out!
Pro-dubbed, color covers, ready to disturb sleep cycles and create vague feelings of dread. Art manipulation by Julie Watts, edition of 50. $6. SOLD OUT.
