After years in the making, I am really pleased to announce the release of Masturbatory Dysfunction's double disc "Clueless Crush: A Collection of Love Songs to Make Out To" on Altar of Waste Records.
Taken directly from the label:
"AOW debut from the PNW's Masturbatory Dysfunction, the latest in a run of absolutely untouchable HNW and HN releases from gutter synth destructionist Felicia Gaggins. Since 2009 she's been producing some of the most sonically and aesthetically severe and utterly assaulting noise releases to grace the underground, creating a body of work unparalleled in its intensity and totally focused in its vision.
Masturbatory Dysfunction's latest album, the double CD "Clueless Crush: A Collection Of Love Songs To Make Out To," offers up an expansive suite of hyper-dense, crushingly bass-heavy, and masterfully composed HNW pieces alongside excursions into more shifting and caustic HN textures and tonalities, a total and exhaustive wipeout of synthesizer meltdown and pedal horror. The sense of tension haunting this record is extreme, the sense of obsession and fixation shot through every piece. An enormous amount of thought, vision, and work has gone into this album and the result is simply one of the best, most focused noise recordings you're going to hear this year. This record will consume you, numb you with its intensity, and utterly destroy you with its severity. Felicia is one of the unsung masters of HNW, and I am beyond psyched to be releasing this record through Altar Of Waste! Certain to be in top 10 noise releases for 2016. Not to be missed!
Packaged in a DVD case with glorious, insanely colorful artwork. This is a ridiculously lovely AOW release. Released in a limited edition of 50 hand-numbered copies. $12 ppd. in the United States, $28 rest of world."
From the label:
"SPECIAL EDITION: a very limited run of 5 copies of this edition was produced. ONE copy is available through Altar Of Waste. This is the ONLY publicly available copy of this version. It has a completely different layout than the standard edition and comes with some very personal items from Felicia Gaggins, adding an additional dimension of hyper-focused intensity to the record.
This special edition of "'Clueless Crush" is packaged in a DVD case and released in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $25 ppd. in the United States, $41 rest of world."
Pent Up Release will have copies up on the storefront soon.
