VARIANT: Vinyl LP
IN 2019 MVTANTS first two EPs, Gore and Mirroshade, were released by Austin Texas cassette tape label Somatic. MVTANT has now teamed up with Dream Recordings of San Diego California to reissue a remixed and remastered edition of Gore + Mirrorshade on vinyl. Listening to MVTANT, one imagines a heathen in some future dystopian back alley hunched over a half-broken machine, forcing tape filth industrial music out of it's circuits: motorik lines pulse out of analog synthesizers, dreamy primitive digital workstations wash over the top, vhs samples of chains and screams are evoked from 12-bit machines, and then captured to ree-to-reel and dumped to mono cassettes. In addition to classic post-punk, industrial and ebm artists, MVTANT is heavily influenced by horror and science fiction films, anime, literature, and graphic novels. The sound is both familiar and new, cacophonous and melodic, uncomfortable and pleasurable, like violent colors that a dirty vcr head spews in scanlines across a tube tv, painful to stare at, but astonishingly vivid and captivating.
