Sale!  


Although Primitive Masonry is only Michael J. O’Neal’s second proper release, following the exquisite and haunting XLVIII cassette on Phinery in 2013, the six pieces contained within suggest decades of refined tinkering and honed subtlety. “Hushmoney” opens the set with a hollowed-out dirge littered with sonic static and heaving atmospherics, highlighting the heightened sense of sonic diversity ahead. Pummeling low-ends and paced, scattershot rhythms perpetuate the dimmed scene with true malevolence and spidery presence. It’s a transcendent experience that grey-scale powerhouses like Modern Love strive to achieve. The title track continues the alluringly dreadful narrative with distant and disfigured runs of tribalistic, post-industrial flair. Elsewhere, “Men of the Collapse,” “Red Curling Mist” and “Dominator” throb their misanthropic meanderings with callous seduction and crippling atmospheres, permeating a hopeful ambivalence in otherwise abhorrent aural atrocities. It’s an uplifting rouse after the fall.

Limited edition of 100 copies. Comes with free download code.
