AntiHamlet/Szdanik Tuuutiitak: split tape

Yet another absurdly limited tape from Psy-Fiction Recordings’ Alexey Nakhodkin, the first side is taken up by AntiHamlet’s “Electric Throne”, a vibrating buzz-drone which gradually gets sharper and noisier until it gains a sort of reverberating attack. Some interruptions trip it up a bit, but then it gets right back into its dirty fluctuations, while seeming basically lodged in place. It’s very monotonous and doesn’t go anywhere but I love it. Later on it seems to catch an electrical fire yet somehow resists getting totally singed and keeps fluttering, thrashing, and crackling. After a while, though, all that’s left is an intensely hissing signal that just can’t quite get extinguished, until it finally bips out at the end. On the other side, Szdanik Tuuutiitak’s “Transparent Alphabet” is a more lonesome organ drone that wavers in the moonlight and trudges in distortion, then gradually disassociates and becomes a ghost. After nearly disappearing, it switches to a more haunted drone, one that sounds more like captured souls.
