V/A, “Psidronic Volume VI”
January 20, 2011 By Mike Wood This is chugging, wall-sound, Psych drone compilation by one Randy Carter from Iowa. His label features plenty of noise and head-twisting grooves; “Psidronic volume VI” is only the tip of the iceberg of what is available from the Dubuque Strange Music Society.
All five of the tracks on this short taster are well over twelve minutes, with the shimmering, minimal buzzsaw of Big Drum Sky Religion’s “Mahakaladelic” being probably the best. A close second would have to be the haunting “Long Distance Tranceporter” by Los Todos. Paregorik and Death Factory check in with some fairly obvious droning noise, but with some interesting bits. Scrap Matter kick a serious noise track full of surprising pulses and diversions (“nervermind it doesn’t matter”).
Dubuque Strange Music Society is a label, a community, a philosophy, all wrapped up and delivered by a man who loves just about any intelligent sound. “Psidronic volume VI” is abrasive and fun, menacing and yearning. And I think you ought to drop a few bucks Randy’s way to help keep the collective alive and bitching.
