Artist: THOUGHT BROADCAST
Title: Emergency Stairway
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"Emergency Stairway could have been Thought Broadcasts debut vinyl full-length. In fact, when commissioned in early 2012, only one 7" and two super-limited tapes were in existence, until some other label snapped to the finish with an even older commission. So, lets say an "almost-debut." Confused? Well, yes, thats probably the point. Ravi Binnings Thought Broadcast project oozes out a dank and confused audio experience isolated way beyond the city limits. A glance at the titles suggests a routing in the primeval real industrial mind-set, hooked up to classic dub sensibility. Listening to these fascinating recordings, one gets the impression something happened in the room that you are probably not supposed to know about, hinting at a twisted form of Aktionism. Beyond the analog grime (these tracks were delivered to label as cassettes, then carefully transferred and mastered at Dubplates and Mastering in Berlin) lays some real treats with "Orgone Theater" and "Portrait Heads" fitting neatly beside V.O.A.-era Cabs in your local disco. Simply put, a beautiful record." -Editions Mego.

Title: Votive Zero
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"Formed in opposition to the media identity schizophrenia of the present,Thought Broadcast thrive upon the post-punk tactics of forgery and radical anonymity. Votive Zero is the second release on Editions Mego from this mysteriously coded American outfit. Emerging from the U.S. noise/punk background, Thought Broadcast further trace a unique path with nine carefully-considered obfuscations of rhythm and blurred takes on expressionism. Utilizing minimalist spaces, rhythmic repetition and material textures, Votive Zero navigates psycho-geometries while bathing in a lost, dubplate-style fidelity. Within this construction, past and present are unified as a hazily paranoid exploration of electronic musics nebulous grey zone. From the damaged mystery of "07/13/2013" to the smeared beats of "Carving a Vow" and Morse code mantra of "Runaway Signal," this ambiguous release treads a subtle and suspicious path where secrets once hidden are revealed on further, deeper listens. Votive Zero is a sustained journey through raw, hand-rendered minimal electronics which advance the cause and effect of Thought Broadcasts strategic occurrences. Mastered and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, March 2014. Artwork by Ravi Binning." - Editions Mego.

"The debut release of Thought Broadcast, Ravi Binnings minimal monosynth punk band. Four songs--this is the band in its most raw and nascent state--freshly generating within the strictures of neurotic action both human and inhuman. A simple strategy for moving among living holograms." - Gel.

Title: Voided
Format: Cass
Label: Hierodule
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Newest material since Social Acid (Personnel Records 2015) and Votive Zero (Editions Mego 2014). Voided offers five counts of deformed concrète, post-industrial rhythms, strident minimalism, and heatwarped electronics, all rendered in signature Thought Broadcast oblique and dubwise production. Among the most exacting entries in the catalog; one that again furthers Thought Broadcasts vision of noise as furtive spatial trace." - Hierodule.

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"You can not stop thinking. About 18, I finally calmed down, I thought I could stop thinking completely.  I become a zombie for four years. Then, in a broken heart, I started again. I came out of the "grip" that held me tight. I started hearing voices. I also tried to kill time. First, you must confess that its people like you and I believe that is broadcasting the idea. It is terrible. When I look around, I am someone who is the same idea with me. My idea is to broadcast. You can read our thoughts. The first is that we can consider a bad idea (like gender or a persons weaknesses). Second, we believe that we have the power to make people read our thoughts, even if it is bad. Because it has the broadcasting of this thought, please consider why it is a lot of people. To hear any ideas you and I are thinking of and I thought of you. Some people think that for all this world, and you can hear what you think they are. The reason for this is that you can read the mind of everyone of us. There have been times when I have an idea that I will consider evil. I do not believe them, but I know they are in my own voice in my head. Then, I would think that they have been implanted by external forces trying to influence my behavior. I just do not want it to develop into something like I do not believe, my inner voice is your own or something like that." - OESB. "Debut vinyl full-length by Daly City, California based isolationist Thought Broadcast. The follow up T.B. album will be released this fall on Editions Mego. Limited edition of 400 copies - 12" black vinyl - heavy duty covers silkscreened by Monoroid." - OESB.

Artist: THOUGHT BROADCAST
Title: Social Acid
Format: Cass
Label: Personnel
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
“Shuffling, hidden and subterranean electronics.
On “Social Acid” the musical element of TB is stripped away further and the underlying machinery shows through even more. This recording continues the dark hallucinations of classic noise and industrial to unparalleled heights of depersonalization.
The most remarkable thing about TB, and what comprises such a huge part of his sound, is the perfectly distorted and tape coated production. This is music that exists at the forefront of an underground lineage but still bears the fidelity of some of the earliest 80s tape experiments in the genre--wherein the difference between matter and sound became obscured.
The attitude expressed here could be considered post-punk in the sense of this being the inevitable end of where punk music would have lead in a perpetual urban dystopia. Once the final transformation takes place you can barely distinguish the dissonant echoes of guitar, vocals and everyday rhythms of rock n roll music.
It is a rare occasion that TB steps from the shadows, but when he does its always the work that does the speaking. "Social Acid" raises the standard even higher. In an edition of 100 copies on labelled, high-grade cobalt cassettes.” - Personnel.

Title: Up-Maker
Format: 7"
Label: Phaserprone
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Four song 7" by Thought Broadcast. A schizo blend of atonal post-punk primitivism and partially submerged rhythm-box dub. A perfect mainline through TBs singular vein of primitive calculation. This 7" being the first vinyl release in the already rarefied TB discography. Letterpressed and die-cut sleeve with insert." - Phaserprone. This is some serious cryptic-style Vanity worship - could easily be lined up along side Pessimist, Unable Mirror, Kiiro Radical, Daily Expression, Plasma Music, Nose, Arbeit, etc.. on the V/A "Music" box set, which is definitely a good thing. Edition of 150 copies. LP on Olde English Spelling Bee soon.
