Artist: SECRET ABUSE
Title: Immeasurable Gift
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"⿿The Immeasurable Gift⿝ is a testament to cathartic possibilities and the role of creation/release as a means of understanding.  Recorded throughout the past three years in a variety of locations and personal moments; encapsulated by a common, unrelenting concern. Beautifully delicate, elegiac melodies concealed within curtains of dense electronic ambiance reveal themselves like the light at the end of the tunnel; a signifier of the temporary vessel form. Balancing recklessness with care and coming to terms with the inevitable; encountering the man on the shoulder, reminding us that we are all just weary travelers.  In an edition of 425 records in full color proprinted cardboard jackets with printed labels and an insert; all design by Jeff Witscher." -Arbor

Artist: SECRET ABUSE
Title: Violent Narcissus
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Secret Abuser Jeff Witscher is an enigma wrapped in a riddle rolled in cassette tape and plugged into a battered pair of towering PA speakers. Hes lived everywhere, met everyone, and inspired legions through his lifestyle, utopian fashions (refugee chic), and spellbindingly intense music. Up from Rainbow Blanket, through to Impregnable, and across the arid plains of Roman Torment and Deep Jew, Witschers maintained a singularity of vision and total commitment to execution that has wrecked us, personally, to the point of speechlessness at least a dozen times. But, despite his restlessly shapeshifting spirit, the past year plus has seen him settling slightly deeper into his Secret Abuse sinkhole style, and heres hoping he lingers a while longer, cause its a fucking winner. Brutal, pensive, blown-out tones crossfade into tortured minor key guitar laments before being slowly subsumed in a droning ocean of choked vocals and sulking, selfish electronics. Repressed, burning, and emotional like a young man pushing away everything, Violent Narcissus is as definitive a document as has thus far yet emerged from the SA canon (and lord knows theres been a grip of gems). Look long and hard; the mirror is a bitter mistress. Black LPs, mastered by Bill Hutson, housed in jackets designed by Witscher. Edition of 445." -Not Not Fun
