shim’s secret stash: kreng, elegi and svarte greiner

first up we’ve got kreng‘s l’autopsie phénoménale de dieu. brought to you by way of the fantabulous norwegian imprint miasmah.

sounds like what you might hear if you were having surgery in an underground cave when the anesthetic is kicking in…

truly a pleasantly disquieting little ditty, this is a masterwork in a genre of half-steppers; it’s the kinda thing i would imagine morticia and gomez throwing on when they do it.

here we have kreng, or mr. pepijn caudron, doing what belgians do best: craft exquisite detail.  it’s not like this dude is just throwing together sounds from some sample cd; he’s seeking out moments to capture, emphasize and contort into strange new sonic frontiers. apparently, many fine theatre productions have also commandeered his skills, notably the xxx-tra freaky surrealist troupe abbatoir fermé. minds were blown, friends.

this is elegi‘s (norway’s tommy jansen) 2rd release: sistereis and it is large. allegedly, jansen spends a fair chunk of time wreck-diving, and it shows here, but i think it has more of an embalmer’s care of the dearly departed. and goddamit, there’s cellos.


lastly, but not leastly, i submit to you: miasmah’s svarte greiner! whooo, yeah!!! norway in da ha-ooooooose!!!

i love this guy. he’s got a stratocaster and some fx and a mic and he spins netherwordly-noir yarns of gold. DIY!!! this image is the cover to a night without harm which is a kinda footnote to the stellar man bird dress.

be sure to look for the new album coming soon!
