Reviewed 2014-01-30 
Really interesting collection of avant/experimental/noisy tracks from French/Swiss/American label. Diverse collection, with a lot of selections for lovers of things one step up from transmitter failure. There are beats and vocals in here too; don't let the noise label scare you off. A familiar name or two here, and a lot to discover- essential late night stuff.

RIYL: Day of Noise, District of Noise

*1 (5:01) Clicking strummed guitar over layers of spacy, droning synths
2 (3:28) Spoken/rapped poetry over rhythmic drumbeat, noisy synth/horn
3 (6:38) Weird, dark vocal samples over noise, deconstructed techno beat
4 (2:39) Thick wobbling electro beat, synth noises, industrial feeling/voc samples
**5 (5:12) Haunted electronics, deconstructed drumbeat, with great fem vox that wouldn't be too out of place in a weird alt-country song before spazzing out, improvising
6 (6:56) Focus often on one or two rhythmic instruments (bass, drums, flute) with noise and vocal samples. Nice beat
7 (2:05) Noisy horn, plucked guitar, whirring screeching synths
8 (6:32) Sax squeals over dentist drills, mic clicking, sparse percussion/guitar squeals
9 (5:04) Eerie film soundtrack feel; woodwinds, piano, synths, horns
10 (6:24) Water flowing, deep bowed strings, crackling static, deep drones, scattered percussion
*11 (4:57) Electronic swooshing, light synths, noisy percussive touches, warbled disturbing vocal samples that warp into screamed variations of oh/yeah
12 (3:09) Loud, jarring industrial guitars, lots of high pitched squeaking
*13 (6:38) Foreboding, sparse guitar and bass over dark, ambient synths. Post-apocalyptic
**14 (5:06) Grooving psychedelic noise, heavy pounding drums and choral vox (possibly synths?). Nice guitar lines too, lots going on
*15 (5:10) Dark guitar morphs in and out of almost dancy electronic drum beat
16 (4:16) Blaring layered guitar/feedback experimentation
