    Portland, Oregon based Liz Harris might have achieved a significant fan base thanks to the whispering, near ambient vocal crusades of her debut album ‘Way Their Crept’ and its follow-up ‘Wide’, but those with a careful ear would have heard slightly more trapped beneath her fuzzy chain of effects. ‘Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill’ marks a departure of sorts for Liz which sees her turn down the fuzz-boxes which caged (and to some degree defined) her sound and allows her voice to ring out above everything else. It is an album steeped in the world of dream-pop, a genre pioneered by the likes of 4AD’s Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil, and far from shy away from the reference Liz has instead grabbed on with both hands, in the process creating an album’s worth of perfect, leftfield pop songs.

    WHIRLING HALL OF KNIVES

    Whirling Hall Of Knives is a collaboration between Magnetize and The Last Sound. Collectively they have amassed some decades of experience in creating diverse, mostly electronic music under many guises and bring little of this knowledge to the table of WHOK.

    WHOK originated from an invitation to do a one-off collaboration performance at the 2006 Dublin Electronic Arts Festival. This sparked further work on the sonic ideas generated and since then, data has been flung back and forth over a distance of 49km, with additional bytes gathered and manipulated at either end until, eventually, the digital dust settles.

    After contributing a remix last year to Ikeaboy's 'Fazzip' 12" on Ireland's premier techno label D1, their debut full-length release 'Electric Lava' is now available on Trensmat Records long player offshoot Nute. The opening track, '2-Bar Heater And Smoke', is featured on the most current Wire Tapper – a CD series given away occasionally with the infamous Wire magazine. This will be followed later in 2009 by a 7" on Trensmat.

    All but shunning rhythm, Electric Lava combines melted guitars, gurgling analogue synthesizers with shards of white noise, digital skree, sheets of feeding back effects processors, and a mighty wall of white hot static and crunchy digital throbs. In keeping with Nute's white label aesthetic the lp comes in a white hand stamped sleeve & cd.
