Seht

Stephen Clover – who also released lathe cut albums under the names Logstore and the Longshoremen.

Yet another of the post H-Corp NZ bands that have risen in the aftermath of the mid-90’s free noise frenzy. Seht is much more about minimalism, field recordings, and still, beautiful moments. Some tracks here (like ‘Canned Laughter’) are outright disturbing and quite experimental while others focus only on solo acoustic guitar. Like Antony Milton, Seht demonstrates an all-too-genius use of field recordings, the pinnacle of which being the 10 minute ‘St. Valentine’s Day’ track that escalates a found recording of a Salvation Army Band to near cosmic proportions!

The Stumps

The Stumps are the New Zealand superspawn of Antony Milton (Pseudoarcana, The Nether Dawn, Etc), Stephen Clover (Seht), and James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians, Gate etc). With a laundry list of individual accomplishments preceding them, “Lost Weekends” brings high expectations. Compared to such seminal acts as Acid Mothers Temple and Fushitusha, these kiwis have their own twist in their psychedelic cosmic explorations. They are robust and powerful; an exciting and often overwhelming listening experience. It’ll burn out your eardrums and douse the flames in hot wax. But fear not, within these methodic blasts are moments of icy calm. Underneath all this chaos is a relaxed thread, keeping some semblance of order intact.
