Cold Cave at 285 Kent, 6/29/2013 (more by Lukas Hodge)
The ever-busy Wes Eisold released a new song under his Cold Cave moniker last week titled "Nausea, the Earth and Me." When that single came out, I wondered out loud if we could expect to see a physical release sometime soon -- Cold Cave have been on a run of seven inches lately -- but according to Eisold's personal publishing house/record imprint The Heartworm, there's no use holding your breath as there are currently no plans for a physical release. Last Friday (10/18), though, Cold Cave announced that "Nausea, the Earth and Me" is available to download as part of a three-track EP via iTunes.
In other Wes Eisold news, Cold Cave's Facebook page linked to a stream of Anti Aquarian's first and only EP, Chrome Jesus, today. It's an awesome 10-minute melange of noise, dance-y minimalist electronics and sound effects overlaid with field-recording style chatter that, at one point, develops into an impromptu snippet of Madonna's "Like a Prayer" sung by what sounds like a group of drunk girls. The EP was originally issued as a cassette limited to 200 copies on Dominick Fernow's Hospital Production and should be available on iTunes soon. Meanwhile listen to a stream of Chrome Jesus below.
Speaking of Dominick Fernow, he just released a new Vatican Shadow album titled Remember Your Black Day and will be playing a Halloween show at Output with Silent Servant.

Noise artist and sound astronaut Aaron Dilloway's been hyper prolific since leaving the also hyper prolific Detroit noise powerhouse Wolf Eyes. He's released dozens of cassettes, CDs and records over the last eight years, often on his own Hanson Records. One thing he hasn't done too much of? Perform live. Dilloway is headlining a just-announced show in NYC at Saint Vitus on October 1 with Richard Pinhas from the 70's French prog band Heldon (who has collaborated with Wolf Eyes). Support comes from Matthew Regula, John Mannion, and On a Clear Day. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
In other ex-Wolf Eyes news, Mike Connelly (Hair Police) and Tara Connelly (his wife, The Haunting) recently teamed up to form the post-industrial project Clay Rendering. Having released their powerful debut EP, Vengeance Candle, on Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions, they're taking their eerie, reverb drenched pop on the road. The tour hits NYC at Far Rockaway noise venue Red Light District on October 11. It's the venue's first show since Hurricane Sandy. All tour dates are listed, along with the tour flyer and the creepy video for "Nature's Confusion" from the EP, below.
Speaking of Hospital Productions, a new LP from Dominick Fernow's militant techno project Vatican Shadow titled Remember Your Black Day will be released on October 21 through Hospital.

JK Flesh/Prurient art
Between his remix contributions, work as Jesu and other psuedonyms, and overall pioneering work ethic, it seems somewhat appropriate (but sad) to watch the influential labelHydra Head Records sail off into the sunset with a final release from an artist of Justin Broadrick's influence.
But enough with the tears. The new split, titled Worship is the Cleansing of Imagination, features Broadrick as JK Flesh along with the great noise technician Prurient on the flip, each contributing three songs. (The artwork, with a lightswitch in the "off" position is also perhaps a nod to the label's final bow.) Prurient's noisy, instrumental contributions stray from his aggressive darkwave-y LP, Bermuda Drain, which hit the label last year; while JK Flesh's three tracks come off like a glitch-y cross between Godflesh, drum 'n' bass, John Carpenter soundtracks and some of El-P's noisier productions. Stream tracks from the split below including JK Flesh's "Fear of Fear" which makes its debut here. Preorder yours at Hydra Head before the 12/11/12 release. Long live Hydra Head.
In other Justin Broadrick news, Jesu recently dropped the vinyl version of the 2010 Christmas EP via Robotic Empire, as well as his now sold-out contribution to the Matador Singles Club, "Duchess" b/w "Veiled".
