The Algonquin Round Table Of Noise: Volume I tape

The Algonquin Round Table Of Noise: Volume I tape

This was a free tape given away at some noise show at Far House, I can’t even remember who played the show. I don’t think any of the artists on this tape were playing, so I’m not sure how the tape got there. It took me a while to get around to listening, but it’s pretty decent. It’s somewhere between a collaboration and a compilation, side A is titled “Icarus” and side B is “Daedalus”, and each section is created by different artists. There’s some pauses in between sections, but it mostly flows pretty smoothly, so it feels like a complete work. There’s a lot of range here, a lot of it certainly fits under the category of “noise” but there’s some more suspenseful melodic droning along with the harsh noise wall, with plenty of frayed static, and some moments where vocals or instruments seem to bleed through. I can’t really decide which side I like better. Not familiar with any of the artists, but their names include Fault Worship, Absolute Hell, and Tu|pa. Available at Bandcamp.
