Title: Testpressing #002
Format: 12"
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Demdike Stare presents #2 in their Testpressing series. "Grows Without Bound" is a noisy analog session resurrected from the burning embers of industrial and noise, harnessed into an unstable growl that makes room for a barely-there percussive stumble -- think somewhere between Vainio and Nate Young. "Primitive Equations" takes inspiration from the bare-boned, hyper-tense production of Photeks "Ni - Ten - Ichi - Ryu," slugging out feral, steely noise and ardcore torque forged by calloused hands and burning minds to cruel, propulsive effect." -Modern Love.

Title: Testpressing #004
Format: 12"
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Searing, tormented darkside f**kery from Miles Whittaker and Sean Cantys Demdike Stare on their rinse-and-run Testpressing series. A-side "Fail" is a slowly descending panic attack of pealing hi-end frequencies and impending bass doom reaching a pit of noisy no return. B-side "Null Results" breaks loose with a scything jungle attack; frantic 16th note hi-hats and cone-crumpling subs laced with a rudeboy mentasm to incite warehouse capoeira. Come test." - Modern Love.

Title: Testpressing #005
Format: 12"
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Demdike Stare return with the fifth installment in their ongoing research and development series -- a double-headed monster split between gnarly reductions on the A-side, and industrial-strength edits on the flip. "Procrastination" edges through grimey detritus and gunshot snares within a vast open space perfectly primed for that Demdike slow-build. "Past Majesty" offers up a feral take on some kind of cyber-industrial insanity, somewhere between Ministry and Powell -- with a denouement which should probably come with a public health warning attached to it. All were saying is -- watch yr eardrums." - Modern Love.

Title: Wonderland
Format: Double LP
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
Gatefold sleeve. "A project that came to life fueled by collectors obsession and a life-long willingness to dive head-first into unknown musical wormholes, Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty have never been defined by a singular musical trajectory. Their opening salvo of releases dabbled with the aesthetic of the occult and provided an alternate, parallax view of the Italian Library records with which they were both obsessed at the time, but as their long running mixtape series and brilliantly curated DDS label attest, their interests extend far outside the crevices of early electronic music and into dance music, dancehall, roots, jungle, techno, industrial, noise and beyond. While 2013s Testpressing series provided an outlet for mostly club-based productions shot from the hip, Wonderland, their first album since 2012s Elemental, has been constructed with a narrative in mind. From the clipped hard-style of the opening "Curzon", through the jaunty dancehall mutations of "Animal Style" and "FullEdge", exotica/house refractions on "Hardnoise", the frankly ridiculous, bass-bin destroying jungle ructions on "Sourcer", or the extended tease of "Overstaying", its probably the most enjoyable and loose-limbed hour of music in their catalog, or that youll likely hear in these weird, angst-ridden times. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton." - Modern Love.
