The brilliant Demdike Stare, the occult project of Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty whose collaborations tick all the industrial, experimental, dark, ambient drone boxes (with a Lancastrian twist) are back with the sixth installment of their ongoing Testpressing series. They’ve also just put both sides out on YouTube, the A side, 40 Years Under The Cosh and the B side, Frontin’. Check both out below.
But be warned, it’s heavy stuff, esp the B side which has literally blown our minds with it’s oh so heavy, dirty, pulverising techno beats. Listen to it played at max volume with all the lights turned out and the chances of your not ending up seriously disorientated and running for the nearest comfort blanket are slim.
The A side came out a few weeks via Fact who described it as “…a slack-jawed dancefloor weapon, with choppy rhythms and razor-sharp synths primed sloppy post-1am moments.”
The release is a limited edition pressing including insert with artwork by Alex Solman and hand-stamped sleeves with initial copies on Transparent Aquatic vinyl. You can grab a copy from Boomkat.
