Lingua Ignota | The Rita – Commissioned LP

Lingua Ignota \ The Rita - Commissioned

This is The Rita’s 3rd LP for Total Black. ‘Commissioned‘ is a split LP with the A-side belonging to Lingua Ignota.

Stripped down piano and vocals renditions of Scott Walker‘s “Girls From The Streets” and Dolly Parton‘s “Jolene” mark a departure from her previous works.

On the opposite side The Rita deconstructs works by Igor Stravinsky played by Mallory Linehan, continuing down the path of ballet obsession explored in recent years.

Limited edition of 300 copies in pro-printed sleeves.

“Ongoing collaborations with The Rita explore notions of embodiment and disembodiment, obsession and worship, creation and obliteration.

Commissioned is what we asked of each other, as the work is no longer just about the sonic realm — it has become about us, he and I, and our awareness, embedded within almost two years of constant communication, back and forth, exchanging ideas, exchanging heartache, one following the mind of the other.

That our work is so different yet rooted in restlessness, an inability to sit still, loneliness, and follows angles, lines. The line of a voice vs. the line of a wall. Commissioned is an understanding, a pact.”

Linekraft – Death of The Slave  7″

linekraft - death of the slave

Death of The Slave is the debut 7″ EP from new Japanese heavyweight Linekraft.

The ideas presented on the recent “Engineering Analysis Of Inner Death” LP on Hospital Productions, and cassettes on Zaetraom & Old Europa Cafe are condensed into a veritable 1-2 punch industrial single.

Human screaming, distorted vocals, crashing junk and oil drum abuse layered on top of analog synth lines go to further the existing evidence that Linekraft is at the top of the game in contemporary industrial music.

Mastered by Grant Richardson AKA Gnawed. Edition of 249 copies in pro-printed covers with spined sleeves.
