Skin Trade Recordings is proud to announce two new releases for 2017. Both of these releases are available here.
Blankets-The Wound Of The Parent Is The Trauma Of The Child CS
Edition of 50
We at Skin Trade are beyond excited to present the poignant and arresting new audio work from Sasha Ford's project Blankets. Listed below is a brief description from the artist of both her process and intent involving the recent recordings.
"Where does memory sit when it exceeds what the body is capable of retaining? That which remains unresolved will persist, cast onto others without being given proper history. Yet persistence does not mean fixity--looseness and renewal are always there, swelling slowly. The Wound of the Parent Is the Trauma of the Child by Blankets conducts its work in industrial ambiance and inadvertent collage, combining minimalist monophonic synthesis, found samples, and manipulated vocalizations to produce an abrasive and ephemeral meditation on memory, melancholia, and healing."
Blankets is about to embark on a few week tour of New Zealand promoting the release.
MARCH 3 = AUCKLAND = AUDIO FOUNDATION MARCH 4 = HAMILTON = FUTURE CITY FESTIVAL MARCH 8 = WELLINGTON = THE PYRAMID CLUB MARCH 10 = CHRISTCHURCH = LOG RECORDING MARCH 11 = PORT CHALMERS = LINES OF FLIGHT FESTIVAL MARCH 12 = DUNEDIN = NONE GALLERY MARCH 17 = AUCKLAND = WINE CELLAR
Witches of Malibu-New Sounds In Afro-Industrial Music Vol. 1 Skott Rusch's long standing solo outlet delivers five tracks of amorphous synth ritual. A uniquely non-temporal aesthetic favoring a crude and unorthodox dance. Pro dubbed slate colored tape with vellum insert.
ST 007Actuary/Seamstress Split CS Aural abuse from two of Los Angeles' finest. Actuary lay waste to side A with two tracks of blackened power electronics while Seamstress corrode side B with one sprawling suite of bleak sound collage and tape manipulation.
Releases lined up for later in the year from Blankets, Conscious Summary, Onset, and Erratix. More news to come. Still Available: Seamstress-Concentric Memoir CS Seamstress-Nothing Is Sacred CS (very few copies left) Last-Appropriate Modes & Zones CS Purchase here.
