DSC#080 - Regosphere - "Good Friday" - 3" Mini CD-R and Sticker - cover

Recorded in late 2015, this 20 minute E.P. includes a live-in-studio rehearsal recording of two tracks that Regosphere was playing out in the Summer/Fall of that year. Too short for a cassette, but two long for a split or to be included on a full-length, we are glad to offer these tracks finally. Crushing analog synths, carefully crafted sound design, grinding junk metal and pissed off vocals create Regosphere's signature Anxiety-Electronics for claustrophobic minds.

3" mini-CD-R in a vinyl sleeve, with laser printed card stock insert including lyrics and a 1"x3.5" die-cut vinyl sticker. Limited to 50 hand-numbered copies.

DSC#119 - The Vomit Arsonist - "You Will Never Get What You Deserve" - C-20 Cassette - cover

We're very pleased to announce a brand new EP by The Vomit Arsonist here on Dumpsterscore, returning to the label after his split 7" with Regosphere that came out back in late 2013. After his fucking excellent album "Only Red" that came out on Malignant last year, Andrew has recorded a new tape for us that gives studio treatments to some of his live material from 2015. "The Great Disadvantage Of Consciousness" gives us his trademark churning death-industrial, with pulsing bass, rhythmic feedback, crashing metal and up front vocals. While "Accidents Happen" brings the metal percussion to the forefront in quick painful jabs to lay the way for more punishment, but ultimately leads the way into a melancholy, even melodic passage, that sees a man looking back in pain. A highly recommended way to start the year off right!

DSC#108 - SHIFT - "Ruminations" - C-20 Cassette - cover

Hailing from the U.K. by way of Sweden, Shift is back for a brand new E.P. to follow up his “Altamont Rising” full-length put out by Cold Spring this past summer. Starting in the mid-90’s, Shift’s sound has evolved from the extremely heavy instrumental works of earlier years, to the more vocal centered Power Electronics and concrete industrial sound found on his newer albums. He’s also been running the Unrest Productions label since 2006 and its sublabel Unsound Recordings since 2011.

With two side-long tacks, Shift’s contribution to the C20 series crushes all in its path. Dealing with being subjected to others mental illness and the long shadow it casts; this is a dark look at the effects of unchecked interactions. Side A builds layers and layers of carefully constructed analog synths and obscured vocal samples to lay the foundation for highly effected vocal attacks. The pulsing electronics intensify steadily and forcefully until you feel your speakers are ready to blow. This track is very disorienting at high volumes! Side B takes a more plodding approach, with disjointed rhythms interlocking with the nauseous rise and fall of carefully crafted synth work and cleaner more aggressive vocals. Slower and meaner, like a caged animal, for the falling!

DSC#107 - Josh Lay - "Scar To Scar" - C-20 Cassette - cover

Making his black metal project Glass Coffin the center of his attention over the past few years, along with the duo Swamp Horse and the long running Husk Records, Josh is back with his first solo noise release in quite a while. Hailing from Kentucky, Josh Lay has been known for unique take on death-industrial and harsh noise viewed through the lens of black metal for many years now. In that way, he could be seen as one of the originators of "black noise" to many. It may surprise some then, that with this new release, he moves away from the heavy sounds of past releases into a more lo-fi experimental take on things. Maybe recording on one of Aaron Dilloway's old four-tracks had some effect? Using ultra primitive synth sequencing, effected guitar and kalimba, tape loops/manipulations and harsh grinding noise that creeps out of during the second half of the tape, this E.P. moves his work firmly into new territory. The synths and loops create a lo-fi psychedelic trance, sounding like the childhood record of a black gloved killer in some giallo, being driven to kill. Slowly a thick wall of harsh static builds and builds until you forgot where you were a few minutes ago and everyone else in the room is dead...

DSC#099 - Spark Applied To Powder - "Abandoned World" - Pro-CD-R - cover

Spark Applied To Powder is the ongoing project of Eugene Oregon's Kevin Spahn who has been active over the past decade producing his own form of dense, highly textured drones and shadowy ambient atmospheres. Nearly two years in the making, "Abandoned World" is a near hour long piece that evolves from total silence, slowly and skillfully, into thick flowing waves of metallic drones, rich bass fluctuations and atmospheric singing bowl harmonics. Using a Sidrassi Organ as the main source, fed through a complex network of rack mount reverb and delay, the singing bowls give the perfect accent to the cascading harmonics culled from the deceptively simple set-up. With a background in architecture, the use of many fine details being carefully arranged to form a massive and cohesive whole with a focus on minimalist beauty seems like a natural progression in the recordings he creates. Fans of fully submersing drone should not miss this album, as it's one of the best in the genre in years, if we do say so ourselves.

Pro-duplicated high quality CD-R with full color artwork and disc in a shrink wrapped jewel case. Limited to 100 copies.

DSC#100 - Regosphere / The Vomit Arsonist - Split 7" Vinyl - cover

We are extremely excited to announce not only the first vinyl release for DS, but also our 100th release as well! November will mark 10 years since we started this humble label using dumpster dived tapes and we couldn't think of a better possible way to celebrate it than with this release, coming full-circle a decade later!

Newly relocated back in Oregon, Regosphere brings a heavy dose of his Anxiety-Electronics in a lurching, claustrophobic track that delves further into the off kilter rhythms, oozing synths, bowed metal screech and punishing vocals that have been surfacing on the past few split tapes and recent live shows. Putting aside some of the more psychedelic elements of past works and focusing more on the feeling of pure dread this track is one of his heaviest and most focused to date. Cancer is the new grim reaper...

Hailing from Rhode Island and coming hot off the heels of his new full-length on Malignant, The Vomit Arsonist lays down one of the bleakest death-industrial tracks ever committed to vinyl for this split. Andy is well known for his solo work as TVA as well as being a member of the long running power electronics outfit Bereft and running the Danvers State tape label since 2008. Slow burn bass throbs lay the foundation for somber scorching synths, junk metal abuse and absolutely crushing vocals. Pain is the way...

Black vinyl, mastered and plated at Aardvark, pressed at United. Pro-printed glossy b/w covers with black and silver labels. Limited to 300 copies. Co-released with Phage Tapes and Obfuscated Records.

DSC#093 - T.O.M.B. - "Nameles Spells and Incantations" - Pro-CD-R - cover

We are very excited to announce T.O.M.B. making their first appearance on DS with the release of "Nameless Spells and Incantations"! Coming off of their recent full-length releases on Crucial Blast, Fall Of Nature, and a one sided LP on Prison Tatt, here the group brings us their most devastating and raw release to date (and that's saying a lot!). Based around the demented visions of the core member No One, and often employing various members of the East Coast black metal and harsh noise underground for live shows and recording duties, this album can be seen as representation of the bands live sound. Live in studio sessions recorded in preparation for the bands gigs with Sun O))), Vomir, Sewer Goddess, Funerary Call and others are mixed with the bands trade mark field recordings made at cemeteries, crematories, abandoned hospitals and with human and animal bones. Obsidian black drones and vocal chants lay the foundation for thick crushing walls of unrelenting harsh noise, primitive steel gate pounding and quite literal tombstone grinding. Listening to these recordings you get the feeling of being alone late at night, hooded figures loom in the shadows of a reverb drenched corridor. Distant pounding and indistinguishable voices draw closer and closer until a blinding surge of electricity fills the room and your bones are ground to dust.

DSC#097 - Alan Courtis and Cyrus Pireh - "URITORCO" - Collaboration C-32 Cassette - cover

One hot day at a small studio in Argentina two long-time experimental musicians got together and laid down a thick session of heavy psychedelic atmospheres bordering on the fringes of psychedelic music and harsh noise. The recordings paint the picture clearly, tapestries on the walls, dirt weed and nag champa looming heavy in the air, warm beer near an open window with a box fan doing it's best to push the heat off the smoldering amps within. This is true modern psychedelia without any hints of nostalgia or irony, just thick waves fuzzed out toba violin coming from Courtis colliding with the fast sporadic guitar playing of Pireh. Everything is processed through gnarled electronics, covered in a thick layer of grime and static with the occasional metal sounds coming in and a nice clean room recording that lets you hear every last detail.

Courtis is of course well know for being a member of the highly prolific and influential Reynols, as well as his many solo and collaboration recordings. A true legend in South American experimental music. Pireh is a long time improv guitarist starting out in IL and becoming a mainstay in Minneapolis over the past decade where he's done an insane amount of solo records, worked with Cock ESP and has an upcoming LP in collaboration with the band Honduras. Being a long time fan of Courtis and a long time personal friend of Pireh we are very excited to put this amazing tape out. Play Loud!
