'After sharing countless stages and touring together over the last two years, like minded noisemakers Housewives and Massicot put together two brand new songs for this limited edition split 7”.
Housewives track ‘Exc. 281016’ perfectly captures the mechanical repetition of their live sound with austere precision and jarring No Wave stutters; their regimented chaos is punctuated with throat shredding manipulated vocals bringing to mind James Chance or the harsh repetition of Swans. Massicots’ ‘Kokteilis’ shows off their ease at genre hopping between their recognisable Tropical No Wave and uncharacteristic hip hop beats whilst showcasing their perfect marriage of pop and noise. Monotone vocals merge with saccharine chants whilst sharp riffs mesh with oscillating percussion to create a perfect bewildering dance track.
This release has gained the support of five labels as a collaboration between Blank Editions / Hands In The Dark / Red Wig / Et Mon Cul C’est Du Tofu? And Harbinger Sound.
