KATUKTU COLLECTIVE Double Slaughter: New CAUDAL and AIDAN BAKER Tapes Now Available!

Katuktu Collective (formerly Land Animal Tapes) is a rad tape label from California bringing you sweet and elegant tapes by highly valuable underground artists. The whole package of physical format and music this label brings you is a real treat, something for the real nerds out there with an eye for looks, touch and feel, and today we want to show you two recent amazing additions to the band’s boutique catalog.

 

Caudal – Slope/Land cassette


Caudal are no news to this site. Their mind-bending fusion of punk and kraut has been discussed before on these pages, and Slope/Land is just another musical mind-voyage by this amazing instrumental improv/jam band (formed by Aidan Baker of Najda on guitar, Gareth Sweeney on bass, and Felipe Salazar on drums) that takes the listener to far away and ungraspable places, riding on the wings of an authentic trance-punk frenzy. Taking cues from psychedelic and math-y experimental bands like Zombi, Can, Ash Ra Temple, No Means No, Faust and Tangerine Dream, Caudal make your mind travel like none other and soak your synapses in pure psychedelic bliss. Heteroticisms Volume 3, 2, and 1 cassettes are also available, or you can buy the whole series as a bundle of tapes.

Aidan Baker X Lärmschutz  – Heteroticisms Volume 4 cassette

With this slab of abstract and levitating static ritualism Aidan Baker of Nadja (guitar, voice, drum machines) has teamed up with Lärmschutz AKA Thanos Fotiadis (drums, keys), and Rutger van Driel (trombone), to bring you on the most immaterial side of the experimental spectrum, through two massive movements of improv-based sonic sculpture within the realms of drone and free form. Both Spoor A and Spoor B seem to be played more by the pedals than by the instruments and you can almost imagine the band surrounded by a myriad of effects as through sapient knob abuse they slowly stretch and morph a single note or chord to its unthinkable limits, reaching the edge of the horizontal knowable, and then layer it moving upward toward vertical infinite. The result is a tri-dimentional hypercube of sound that envelops you and crushes your mind. Simply spectacular.
