Well: Tape

This minimal-info tape from Portugal starts out with a 25-minute live seance for its first side. “Mass In C Minor For Diskette Box” sounds like it couldn’t have taken more than a few small machines to make, but the duo manage to conjure ghosts that the machines’ manufacturers certainly weren’t aware were inside of them. Starting with a prowling drone, a clicking beat gradually grows louder and more out of control. It eventually dies down, but then other noises begin to swarm like an ever-growing flock of mechanical robot birds. Once the terror becomes too much to bear, things start exploding and shooting off into space. The other side of the tape has several shorter pieces, allowing for more concentrated panic bursts (“Short-Circuit”) as well as the seep-into-your-consciousness drone “Bird Road”. Still available from Bandcamp.
