Artist: RAINFOREST SPIRITUAL ENSLAVEMENT
Title: Water Rose Above the Head
Format: 12"
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement manifests on the Bed Of Nails compound with thrumming, sub-heavy techno and ambient incursions. "These Spirits Are Thought to Live Far Out at Sea and Are Usually Malevolent" clocks in at almost a quarter of an hour and is sunk deep with an aquatic 4/4 variant that recalls classic Chain Reaction: Porter Ricks, Vainqueur, Fluxion, albeit built within the framework of the Hospital/BoN aesthetic -- sporadic field recorded flourishes, found sounds and un-placeable percussion. "They Shoot Men with Flying Fish and Travel in Waterspouts or on Rainbows" offers a 10-minute set for the private afterhours; opening with an impossibly deep bass throb before dipping into a cornucopia of fake plastic ambience, a world where mechanical macaques and Chris Watsons weather recordings coalesce into a low-end mass thats somewhere between Kode9s Sine of the Dub and FSOLs Lifeforms -- an intriguing subversion of new age signifiers built to soundtrack a Ballard short set in a 2060 Berghain." -Bed of Nails.

Artist: RAINFOREST SPIRITUAL ENSLAVEMENT
Title: Folklore Venom
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Now available on vinyl for the first time, following on from an excellent LP for Blackest Ever Black and a 12" for Bed Of Nails. The project has become one of Dominick Fernows most intriguing, offering an artificial, unnerving take on both ambient and more propulsive electronic music, in turns reminding us of everything from Aphex Twins Selected Ambient Works Vol. II to John Carpenter, Vangelis Blade Runner soundtrack, Leyland Kirby, classic Chain Reaction, Demdike Stare and, of course, Fernows own myriad productions under various aliases (Prurient, Vatican Shadow, etc.). For the most part, the project has been an experiment in tonal dread and dankest atmospheres, but on Folklore Venom rhythms play a more prominent role, pacing anxiously below the dense murk of "Upside Down Left Eye," or as a stodgy techno bedrock to the inclement conditions of "The Spirit Wore the Shoes of the Boy," or a sputtering, diesel-powered chug to the noxious vibes of "Black Magic Originated in Nature." Factor the petrifying gloom of "Spirit Companion Sick-Bed" and the unheimlich, exotic sonic ciphers of "Malaysia Yellow Herbs," and you have one of the strongest releases on Hospital Productions yet." -Hospital.

Title: The Plant with Many Faces
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Now available on vinyl for the first time, following on from an excellent LP for Blackest Ever Black and a 12" for Bed of Nails.

Spread across 40 minutes, The Plant With Many Faces develops from Carpenter/Frizzi-esque bass arpeggios and abandoned cabin vibes on "Abaxial Masks...," to the petrifying Killer Bob themes in "Out of the Mess..." and the gloaming drones of "Complex Rituals...," finally brought to a close with the miasmatic clamminess of "Poisonous Spirit Species." -Hospital Productions.
