✩BEST REASON TO WRITE A FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEW TODAY✩ 7/22/14:
the DEAD SPACE Faker cd/lp (12XU - 2014)
Wunderkind Quin Galavis foregrounds his low end and locks talons into Jenny Arthur’s muscle – she often plays open on the cymbals, which we love – and together they sculpt a low end crucible of shadow for Garrett Hadden’s gilded burns. Like just about everything else on 12xurecs, the ten songs on Faker stand apart from much of the sub underground pack via well honed idiosyncratic kapow. Sick. DO NOT MISS.
But don’t take our word for it. Click through the vid below of the DEAD SPACE performing ”You’re Fake” from February 2014 (courtesy Ángel Delgado-Reyes)
Letha: "When I lived in Chinatown on Canal Street in New York, I loved to lay in bed and listen to the vendors shouting, blending with the heavy traffic and tiny wind chimes; I would pretend I was someplace else, somewhere I didn’t know. I love that feeling. I became interested in field recording after hearing Salmon Run by Graham Lambkin, and had found a website called The Quiet American. I began piecing my tracks together under the name Tretetam, and was influenced by Lambkin, Marcel Türkowsky, Emiliano Maggi, Moondog, Maya Deren’s films and more recently Aaron Dilloway’s Modern Jester and Ryan Martin’s York Factory Complaint / DeTrop. I also must say my husband Dan Melchior has been my musical hero since I met him in 1999.”
Auckland trio of “2 guys and a girl” who apparently enjoy posing in front of beer trucks, but nevertheless churn out a dark clanging mono flow of transgressive depth. Warm as an oven though and very worthy of investigation.

Here’s the inside scoop: While we almost clinched an exclusive distro deal with Whole Foods LLC, their attorneys balked at the word Fuckin’and suggested - insisted - we change the name to Funny Record Reviews. We gave it some thought, but in the end could not countenance such an incursion into the spirit of our venture.
That doesn’t mean we aren’t interested in selling out, so to speak. Of course we’d sell out! It just has to be the right fit, y’know? Plus our company car lease is up in August, so if any automobile manufacturers out there want an image boost, we’re open to collaboration.
As it stands, we’re aiming for FunnyFuckin’ Record Reviews #1: The Print Edition to be available from all the respectable distros and stores who would carry sucha thing. You know who they are, and when we make those arrangements we’ll let you know what you already know. A direct Paypal account will also be set up. Stay tuned.
