about

Worshipping at the temple of Kazumoto Endo, T.E.F. Skin Crime and Romance. Lacrima is a new project from Opal bossman Stephen Bishop wherein he returns to his formative roots within noise music.

Produced using tabletop electronics, field recordings and a LOT of shortwave radio recordings. 'Candy' is the second offering from Lacrima following 2019's 'Romance' (soon to be reissued on Opal). This time collage like cut-up noise and destructivist recordings form the basis of an excoriating listen. Opener 'Stomach Division' pummels from the opening gate, super speed cut up harsh noise ricocheting through digital delay mirror mazes. 'Excavant' is metal sheet industrialism reaching a horrifying crescendo of body-melting density and gibbering shortwave insanity. 'Dripping' watches a building demolish itself forever and over, simultaneously rebuilding sheet after sheet in acid burned bone smashes.

A motif of abdominal body horror perpetuates the release, with the physical frame being digested and effluxed, shaken apart by actual movement and chemical loosening. 'Eat At Joe's' pays homage to a certain someone without whom nothing would really be happening. Mid-fi clattering electro-acoustics bombard shoulder to shoulder with piezo-crackle and hum. 'Welcome Home Candy' concludes with a cyclical loop to the beginning. Viscious cut ups assail and escort your madness forth.

Whilst harsh indeed this is sculptural noise music designed and recorded for full effect on the gut and it's precious flora.
