Video Premiere: Headboggle – “IDM PROMO”

October 4, 2016

Video Premiere: Headboggle – “IDM PROMO” Headboggle and Malocculsion are two of the Bay Area’s most prolific artists. Mr. ‘Boggle (Derek Gedalecia) has a staggering discography that, as far as I can tell, is unblemished by mediocrity. Malocculsion’s label Ratskin Records is a central institution to Oakland’s noise scene. Of course... 

Side-by-Side: Hausu Mountain’s Narf Guzz Batch

January 29, 2016

Side-by-Side: Hausu Mountain’s Narf Guzz Batch Tapes! My inner Donald Trump would say that like every movement grounded in democracy, there comes a time when maybe too many people have a voice; there are too many artists,  there are too many bands, with too few ideas, united under too similar of an ideology: find object with strings, strum, make... 

I Still Have No Idea What to Put Here: Dwight’s 2015

January 8, 2016

I Still Have No Idea What to Put Here: Dwight’s 2015 In a year filled with over-hyped rhetoric, it feels a little surreal to try and parcel up my take on the experience. Honestly though, I may have felt similarly last year, if the title of my year end posts signals anything. America’s long-winded election is in full-swing… a year+ long leer... 

Week in Review #86

September 19, 2015

Week in Review #86 “Since the last podcast, things have changed over dramatically from Summer to Autumn here in Minnesota with some refreshingly cool and absolutely beautiful days of late. It’s my favorite time of year, so I welcome the change. It has also been refreshing spending the last couple of weeks assembling... 

Mukqs – ‘Xa食pi人ri鬼pë’

August 17, 2015

Mukqs – ‘Xa食pi人ri鬼pë’ I’ve been in a Hausu head-space since this summer’s Voice of the Valley, where a slew of related projects appeared throughout the fest, so I’m psyched to share the latest from Maxwell Allison’s solo Mukqs project — which follow distantly on a 2013 debut alongside Hausu... 

Video Premiere: Piper Spray – “Goodbye, Rabbits”

August 12, 2015

Video Premiere: Piper Spray – “Goodbye, Rabbits” Astute readers will remember the relatively recent blog post that graced this site regarding the befuddling and lovely Krolorog cassette, courtesy of Russian mastermind Piper Spray. The classy gents over at Hausu Mountain just shared a three-dimensional CGI interpretation of track thirteen, “Goodbye,... 

Week in Review #76

July 11, 2015

Week in Review #76 #1 – 7.4.2015 – I have to start this week’s review with a slightly out of date but still critical news bit, namely, that the rap/hip-hop focused Strictly Cassette blog has a new release out from Brooklyn producer Jazzsoon, titled Taxi — a concept album made with samples from,... 

Piper Spray – ‘Krolorog’

June 12, 2015

Piper Spray – ‘Krolorog’ Like an LSD-inspired version of Rasputin, the Russian sorcerer known as Piper Spray emits jets of sonic wisdom all over the place. These sounds are just waiting to land inside the world’s ear holes, raining down on us humans like malformed Tetris pieces. It sounds crazy, but it’s pretty... 

TALsounds, ‘All The Way’

May 26, 2015

TALsounds, ‘All The Way’ Hausu Mountain, 5.26.2015 All The Way, the new album from Goodwill Smith member TALsounds (aka Natalie Chami) is by turns hypnotic and gripping, with swaths of gorgeous texture that metamorphose into songs and back again before your ears. Listening to the album is kind of like taking a late-night walk... 

Potions – ‘Light and Dark’

May 4, 2015

Potions – ‘Light and Dark’ Light and Dark, the new one by Chicago synthesist Potions, pops out on Hausu Mountain this week, and has pushed into and beyond my night time work vibes and into my daughter’s automobilian sleep sessions. Of the three tapes in the batch, Potions’ album sits firmly between the ambient improvisations... 

Dwight’s 2014: Last Year, What Year? Just Say Hello

January 30, 2015

Dwight’s 2014: Last Year, What Year? Just Say Hello As I wrote in the introduction to yesterday’s label feature, 2014 looked like a good year for labels — we admittedly see and try to treat with a large number, but isn’t that any aspiring capitalist’s ideal vision of shopping? A world of choice, with access to varied experiences.... 

Grasshopper, ‘Dark Sabbath: Symbols of Evil’

January 6, 2015

Grasshopper, ‘Dark Sabbath: Symbols of Evil’ Hausu Mountain, 11/14/14 The third vinyl outing from Brooklyn’s Grasshopper finds Jesse DeRosa and Josh Milrod in exceptional form. From the very first moments, we are met with a supremely confident and building blast of deeply pulsing, darkly droning energy. Hausu Mountain has packaged the proceedings... 

Something Mystical Going On: An Interview with Headboggle

August 6, 2014

Something Mystical Going On: An Interview with Headboggle My previous effort to get into the head of Derek “Headboggle” Gedalecia gave me a close look at the turbulent politics of the San Francisco Bay Area noise scene. After Derek had to cancel our meeting at the last minute, a resulting lengthy interview with Greg Garbage netted facetious death... 

Week in Review #28

July 19, 2014

Week in Review #28 Just before this week began, it turns out the gang at Hausu Mountain announced a tour — Goodwill Smith and Sugarm will be cavorting in a compressed squiggle from Ohio through the northeast, then south for a moment, and back north to terminate at the Voice of the Valley Noise Rally less than an hour... 

Side-by-Side: Hausu Mountain’s Mugen Series, Vol. 5-8

May 22, 2014

Side-by-Side: Hausu Mountain’s Mugen Series, Vol. 5-8 Chicago oddity outhouse Hausu Mountain has had a hell of a year, highlighted/underlined/bolded by a string of the label’s strongest outings yet, with entries from Black Hat, Lockbox, Sugarm, William Selman, Moth Cock, and a Jerry Paper/Andy Boay split. HausMo now returns rather swiftly with another... 

William Selman – Equatorial Night

April 18, 2014

William Selman – Equatorial Night Among the latest from Hausu Mountain, William Selman’s Equatorial Night eschews easy categorization. Composed solely on a modular synth with both analog and digital processing, this tune brings in dub-infused bass, chunky percussive stabs, and background ambient synth waves that ebb and flow.... 

Khaki Blazer – Groundscore

April 10, 2014

Khaki Blazer – Groundscore For anyone that knows Kent, OH wacko improv unit Moth Cock and has since heard Khaki Blazer’s free albums, that the jacketed revolutionary responsible is none other than Patrick Modugno, one half of the aforementioned duo, may be less than surprising. Groundscore appears alongside a second album, Club... 

Week in Review #12

March 29, 2014

Week in Review #12 Our twelfth installment of the Week in Review, the closest thing I’ve ever had to a regular journal… I still incline toward beginning with things we missed from the prior week; though we don’t want anyone to think our eyes aren’t on the real prize, yessir, next week, nothing... 

Video Premiere: Black Hat – “Imaginary Friends”

March 4, 2014

Video Premiere: Black Hat – “Imaginary Friends” Hausu Mountain (who have been completely unstoppable as of late) are gearing up to release the full-length LP Thought Of Two by Black Hat, who has previously released a CD-R on Debacle Records and a tape on Field Hymns. LA-based video artist Zara Ruckus has created a video clip for an edited version... 

Lockbox – Prince Soul Grenade

February 4, 2014

Lockbox – Prince Soul Grenade If all you thought Hausu Mountain had going for it was a logo based on the packaging for Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 bizarro Criterion-classic House, your surprise probably already drew you in for further research, as I did on seeing the smiling caricature. Their latest release is the newest offering...
