With Throats As Fine As Needles

New duo comprised of Celebrate Psi Phenomenon / Birchville Cat Motel‘s Campbell Kneale and Pseudoarcana / A.M.‘s Antony Milton.

Extended fluttering organ drones, shifting like sonic sand dunes, elemental forces dragging melodies and chords out over thousands of years, the glacial flow of sound, warm and dreamy, recorded live in old bunkers and tunnels, these two tracks of primieval ur-drone, reverberate and shimmer, like clouds of crystal shimmer, meditative and tranquil, a gorgeous almost static haze! some more perfectly pristine drone music from these two masters!

Wormwood

Over the years, Mikel Goodwin’s wormwood solo project has shown him to be one of KRKRKRK’s most versatile and ingenious recording artists. Mikel’s enviable talent with soldering irons and screwdrivers – and his technical flair for the construction of diabolical, electro-mechanical devices has only enhanced the label’s reputation for loud and reckless experimentation.

Taking cues from the 1980’s industrial/ambient and goth-rock movements, there is noise and darkness in Mikel’s music – but these elements have always been complemented by a twisted pop sensibility and an attitude of playful malevolence.
