Stephen O’Malley-: strings, fx, amps

While most commonly known for his work as the guitarist for SunO))), O’Malley is an incredibly prolific artist with a wide variety of projects and collaborations with some of the leaders in the current avant/experimental community, especially those bent towards metal and doom influences. For space’s sake I will just link you to his wikipedia page for what I believe is a complete listing. Also check the label he helped start, Southern Lord, for groups in a similair vein

Peter Rehberg- oscs, apps, drives

Rehnberg works primarily under the Pica moniker but is also a frequent collaborator with electronic tinged artists pushing boundries likes Z’EV and Matmos and is a member of the electroacoustic improv group MIMEO. He also runs the label EditionsMego that will be putting out the next KTL album (IV)

rhr046: The Weakends LP  the weakends [myspace] are back with the follow-up to their debut 7”, and this time it’s with a long-player that finds its home a bit more on the blues-punk side of the no-fi french underground. they are banging away, singing through broken PA’s, sounding like a way cooler hot rod, 50’s, b-movie band then you ever remember, or they sound like what those bands should have sounded like, but they were too self aware or just never that good. [1000 pressed, 900 black vinyl, 100 white vinyl] track listing: long dead gone, devil by my side, arty party, heatwave, slow down & low, one pill to survive, desperate love blues, wild type, dawn of the dead, time is tight, back from the rave, wisdom teeth.

Harlem playing at a Birthday house party

Different title but I am pretty sure this is now known as ” Beautiful and Very Smart”. And yes the bass drum is that large

NP054 Knitted Abyss - Winter Barn C32
Knitted Abyss is Lucy Phelan (1/2 of Naked on the Vague) and Anna John two Sydney AU. Residents and staple down under weirdo makers. Winter Barn is like a dark reverberation of down tuned psychedelic guitar murmur and gothy drum machine rhythm, backed by ghostly vocals and doomy echoes. This is a real hazy, foggy, nocturnal set of sounds for a new mutant world. Art by SDreed.
