Amduscias

Being from Southern California, Amduscias is a compilation that hits close to home. Until hearing this release, I thought my collection included some of the most diverse unknown and underground electronic artists. I was wrong. Amduscias wins that bragging right by a landslide. Of the twenty-one artists present the most interesting is San Diego's cooly named Mike Czech, whose other works I've found in MP3s from The Roundtable MCs on the net. Third rail steppers are another excellent group and the other 16 or so artists are sure to pleasure.

These artists cross all boundaries, with a primary focus on the eclectic, strange and downright bizarre. White noise, percussion, ethnic instrumentation, drum machines, cellos, reel to reel tapes, sampled voice, and guitar all play some roll in the construction of music on this compilation. Mere words cannot adequately describe the vibrant differences between tracks.

The only way to properly experience this experimental masterpiece is to own a copy yourself and admire the fidelity on a pair of expensive headphones. But as we're still in the EastBlok, you'll have to do it through the post, as it's the only way to get this rne album. To do that, contact: Zenflesh Records, P.O. Box 252065, Los Angeles, CA 90025 or email them: E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
