Let these into yer skull...



I’d like to introduce the Noisejihad net label.
(thanks to Rafael for bringing it to my attention)

Not the blistering assault on the senses you may at first think, as a lot of the free dwlds here are very drone based which makes a refreshing change from the expected extreme end of the noise scene. I can never get enough of both camps, but on a lovely sunny day like today where even the necessity of breathing is too much effort a slowly built structure that nibbles at your consciousness goes down perfectly through the headphones...



...and what better candidates than the below to fulfill the requirements

Danny Kreutzfeldt from Germany – throwing a cool shadow of menace in a slow motion freefall, glimmers of light in the high end distortion and twisted rip stream currents that agreeably fill your head.



The marvellously named Skull Defekts from Sweden (who incidentally have a fabulous split LP out with the ever wonderful Wolf Eyes that's well recommended) give some divinely distorted bass gtr, drum and vocal surprises amongst the regular electronic stew that would even bring a grin to Justin Broadrick’s face.



Kim Cascone from the US – all microtonal skips, clicks and industrial hum that serenely infest you with their scuttling...



Eye candy created using Dreamlines.
