Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Such Awe-filled Symmetry

Hototogisu is the Japanese for cuckoo, a bird which apparently in Japanese culture is a symbol of the netherworld - an infernal bird, a spook with wings.

Hototogisu masterfully create a dense sediment of tectonic drone with the thickest layers of guitar, vocals, & electronics. Elaborately arranged, Hototogisu features the obviously seasoned sonic travelers Matthew Bower (Skullflower, Pure, Sunroof!) & Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards). There are points here that the cacophony is so insanely oversaturated that the noise starts to sound as if it's spontaneously giving birth to language: you start audio-hallucinating words & sentences.

Hototogisu – Awful Symmetry, Heavy Blossom HB-03, 2005.
