WTF Album Reviews. If you create strange and abnormal music - send it to us.
WTF 2012 year end multi-album-review
WTF 2012 year end multi-album-review(re-edited)
Welcome to 3012 and what the fuck happened last year at wtfmusic.org?
Besides the dream marathon, always fun contributions from Richard There,
the disappearance and reappearance of ettuspadix, and general what the
fuckery, we also had many artists post up their albums.
These are the ones that haven't been reviewed yet, from old and new
members. I left a lot of stuff out in the first version of this review
(which also had several errors) so I'll try not to leave anything out
this time, but if I overlooked your album then sorry fuck you.
Disseminating through the wtf globby goo of submitted albums is a
difficult process, leading to the ultimate question what the fuck is
what the fuck. Members who've participated to the site receive
priority, while whatever else I could find from non-contributing or
non-members has been amended as a foot-note, which you can download
listen and decide for yourself if it's fucked up music. There is
seriously way too much shit… (I also cut out some of the rambling from
the first version of this review.)
* Wei Zhongle - Wei Zhongle http://weizhongle.bandcamp.com/ http://weizhongle.bandcamp.com/album/wei-zhongle
Rob Jacobs (wtfuser) offers neo-classical ragas from astral temples with
gamelan inflections and chamber ensemble with vocals. As with previous
entries from Robert over there in the States of America, the over the
top vocals push the WTF-ometer, as the music itself has these nice
luscious qualities of henceforth and good ol' what we call beauteous
music with harmonicity of sonic pleasure sphere… i.e. musical and well
played and performed with instruments scales and techniques that have
been handed from the ages. This is a great free download for WTFers who
want something slightly less creepy to sing along to while washing the
dishes with guests over for tea. We got harmonic plucking electric
guitar by ol Robert, along with a host of friends on percussion, drums,
violin, bass, clarinets, and maybe some more mystical vibrational
* The Chopittos Arkestra - Zavanardi http://asschoes.blogspot.jp/2012/10/the-chopittos-arkestra-zavanardi-rising.html
This is a very beloved Fuckified gem of hardened crystallised pubic
hair, vomit, spit, sputum, blood, milk, and putrified semen. Actually
this thing is not as scary as it might seem, that's just a nice
overdramatic intro into its psy-sludge-a-brown-ness. 20 tracks, so be
in for a nice wide variety of songing, and yet it holds a one-ness of
what it is, an anthem to a horrible hideous wrathful terrible vengious
vericifous velociforous pythagonal grobbling gruebelling waiferous thong
clad shit-dripping deity of the 7th fathom. It's good fun, you should
go check it out. Also go to the Asschoes website for a fuckload of more
stuff from LFC, LCF & FCao, and The Chopittos Arkestra. You have
no idea how prolific this fucking lucas fucking crazy is http://asschoes.blogspot.jp/
And now, a sling of * LFC albums with a once sentence about each one.
* The Chewers - Every Drop Disorganized www.artpushers.com/thechewers.html www.soundcloud.com/the-chewers
Go to their site, get chewed by a huge mouth, and download that free
album of theirs, Every Drop Disorganized. WTF qualities are in the
murk. Or are they? maybe I just like it… This music is crtaftfully
executed and well recorded, with a honed sound and style, deceptively
simple. Forget references, let's say it sounds like a band called the
chewers, which has drums and basses playing swamp rock. It reeks of it,
speaks of it, and begs to be called that. The leaves, dead bugs and
humus are heavily decayed, and the stench lurks.
* Hado Navarro - Rarities Covers And Tributes http://archive.org/details/HadoNavarro-RariritiesCoversAndTributes
Hado Navarro as always brings us sampling fuck-uppery! Sounds speaking
the language of digitizational manipulations. The layers upon layers of
these fucked fanged winged curdled beasts makes a hyper meta scoundrel
that will virally enter each of your cells as it devours you from within
with its toxic digestive juices.
* gretel - chess room http://gretel.bandcamp.com/track/chess-room
here's something a bit different from gretel. Last time we heard
gretel, she showed us some of her music - it was her in a room with a
cymbal and a guitar and maybe some effects and I think she sang too.
This time is not like that. this is one track, a 5 minute 18 second
drone that's like really droned out and droney, with like a hardness to
the drone and maybe like a soft cushion of drone underneath the hard
part, modulating up and down. Thanks gretel!
* Tribalmazoot - Psithératops http://tribalmazoot.bandcamp.com/
Remember to check on your eggs, how they cookin? don't leave them on
the frying pan like that just sitting there. I like mine with hot chili
sauce or some kind of spicy tomato pepper sauce. And so Psitheratops
rummaged through treetops and vine-sprouts into the avocado kingdom. I
got me a papaya, time for another journey! What was that emblem? Did
you divine the talisman? Tribalmazoot rules over the kingdom of
Tribalmazoot! tags: experimental circus tribal industrial punk
* Freaks With People Behind Them & Fabiorosho - A Split For Newborn Osprey http://effluviarecordings.wordpress.com/er081-freaks-with-people-behind-them-fabiorosho-a-split-for-newborn-osprey/
based on the title alone, I would highly recommend this album to any mother of siamese twins or a stray arthritic donkey.
This is our dear friend N-Szewski's first tracks released on an album,
along with noisy glitch beat tracks by Fabiorosho, who is not a wtfmusic
Two flavors of experimentation with recording and composing tracks,
blended. On this album and at wtfmusic, N's tracks rank highly on the
WTF meter. I can't describe the strangeness in words, but some of it
takes me directly to places I've never been.
And on the electronic side of things,
* Martin Rach - Music for Children http://archive.org/details/edp057
for the wtf child in all, simple electronic pieces without any heavy
beats, an album suite of introspective, playful pianistic and
1. Tail Tale
electric mallets playing through alien waves, adrift on a path, moments passing behind, leaving a constant trail.
2. Chasing on the Staircase
again one polyphonic synth instrument playing cycling patterns descending and ascending in hops, a kind of atonal trance fugue.
3. Toy Dance
Open the box, get the toys out on the floor, listen and watch them as they perform for your amazement.
4. Playing in the Rain
a piano miniature built upon a motor rhythm of variations on repeted phrases.
5. Bedroom Spaceship
here we go straight into the cosmos, alien territory, limitless
unimaginable distances, past black holes and dark matter, through void
and around vast condensations of gravity, all in the comfort of our
little home, with the aid of our computer panel photon wave particle
beam chime astral projection unit channelling in on sub-harmonic
6. These Yellowgreen Leaves
This one has sounds of an acoustic guitar, mixed into an electronic
piece. Sentimental Rach is painting brushstrokes of colored blowing
falling through in the wind. Sweet sounds.
7. Snowflake Lullaby
The seasons close with the winter and nature sleeps. Quietly and serenely, to the tune of a drippy magneto-organ.
Martin Rach produces a wide range of music that has always intrigued,
and the subject material on Music for Children is focused in expression,
using very basic and limited material from which to build a rich
* Joewl Levis - Nuts in As Shell
has released an album "Nuts In As Shell" but I don't know where you can download it. This is his youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeISE9wjeOE&list=UUyP0HAulnDIFBe1Q8JbTikg
There are however clips uploaded at wtfmusic.org for any who wish to
listen, as well as one 40 minute long track of Joewl philosophy poetry
vulgarity and song for voice alone.
Also Joewl has participated as a vocalist on works by collaborator music composer, Tannenfolletti
* Tannenfolletti has a couple albums available from this link (as do
Joewl and a bunch of other wtfmusic members), but I'm more familiar with
the videos that were posted last year by Joewl, which are all found
here to stream. The videos act as landscapes for the music, mostly
simple everyday kind of shots with some simple video effects. The music
expresses strong poetic qualities, use of space and tension, a sense of
waiting for something to come, a highly individualistic use of
electronics and rhythms, as well as a very nice incorporation of Joewl's
lovely voice. I would hope someday she shares her music on our site,
other members may be interested…
* Bloopy - I only liked the neglected demos http://bloopy.org/dkh/DeadKidHarvester-IOnlyLikedtheNeglectedDemos.zip
Yeah, me too Bloopy, all those other projects that were used somehow, I
never liked those so much either, ever. Scrap it all, leave it to the
garbage, and collect it again some other time to make an album of
neglected demos! This is actually some of the goofiest, funniest, and
fucked to the bone music heard in my ears in a long time, something in
fact never heard in my entire listening experience. This is something
entirely other, almost stupid in fact, well, fucking brilliantly stupid!
A retarded genius of astral bafoonery! The feeling I get from this
music is a kind of sensation in my brain that no other music has ever
come close to. Two huge what the fucking middle finger thumbs up.
Bloopy fucks your mind with insane wacky ideas and voices, and a fuck
instruments just use the kitchen sink lo-fi approach.
This past year 2210 saw the advent of the ongoing Dream Marathon http://wtfmusic.org/#topic/1329111088
started by bloopy, as well as his New Zealand ATO WTF thread. A call
to all for more marathon themes and wtfmusic album collaboration ideas
for the new year 1320.
Also from New Zealand,
* Rotate the Completer - r.t.c.:ep
A white tape with back cover track listing:
I don't even remember where I got this. I think someone mailed it to
me. Which means, in the millionth re-edit for fact-checking failures on
this 2102 year end review, I have to apologize for repeatedly fucking
this up. Because this is the music from New Zealand that is by the man
who is Rotate the Completer.
Sorry, it's damn cold outside and I listened in my room.
I started it off with the tape half speed, then realized and fixed it,
then the music came out. He feels really near, in the same room. He's
a-walin and a-strummin an-a makin a heart-soul feelin just a-comin out.
Howlin insanely at everything in the universe. Gleeful tragedy.
In a limited press of 20 tapes, I couldn't find any place to listen on the internet. I'd have to torrent it.

22.) Bay of Plenty Bible Belt - Disc Jockey Joe Bloggs
Boy did I fuck this one up, completely misrepresenting it in the last
edit of this fucking review. Didn't even read the fucking track listing
on the cover, just listened a few times and was like, "shit, this guy
plays a whole bunch of different styles of music that sound like
completely different bands," when in fact that's exactly what this
appears to be. The Tauranga Music Sux blog released this compilation of
acts from Tauranga which is another blog entry chapter into the saga of
why Tauranga music sux. The blog itself is exactly what it says it is,
to an extreme, as it relentlessly and spitefully tears up everything
that is the music scene in this little sticks town in New Zealand. It's
all basically just like that, good for a laugh, check it here: http://taurangamusicsux.blogspot.jp/
(a bit odd that it's a .jp address, is this fucker actually in Japan?)
think what you wanna think.
I also found one video of a horrendously shitty band known as Climbing
Trees. What I couldn't understand is whether it's the same band as on
the CD. They didn't use a slide guitar. Another video I found with the
same name had this healing ambient progressive music. Don't really
feel like delving any further here...
There is one Rotate the Completer track on this compilation, near the
end. It's that signature insanity style yes indeed. Well, what the
fuck is up with this guy? Who is he?
* sferi - Sound of the Spheres http://sferi.bandcamp.com/
Check this shit out. Sound of the spheres motherfucker. Think I'm
gonna take a good old blazin hit of the most THCous smoke before I
settle down into my feral tucked in under the covers resting position
buried in futon and ready to inhale my cosmic dream dust. And that is
what I have to say about this here thang!
you download this in a zip from the archives. Unzip that shit and play
it, this is a collection of 1 minute tracks. Internet tape-trading diy
bedroom noise aesthetic vibe resemblant of Hal McGee projects. I heard a
rumour that this is the longest compilation of this kind, the longest
assemblage of 1 minute tracks into a whole entire musical album, ever
made. I'm not going to bother mentioning who's on it, just go to the
site if you care. Who knows what the fuck you're going to listen to
this thing if and once you download and press play on your device. What
the fuck is gonna happen I can't tell you cause I don't even know
either 'cause I haven't even listened to any of it as of writing this!
Although I did listen to one or two samples of nonrelated music from the
