Dub Merzbow MP3

Another single from another album from Important Records in which the distinguishing characteristic is what the musician listened to prior to recording. Last time (Disquiet Downstream, March 10) it was Play by Larsen, a post-rock band who listened to eminent techno-glitch act Autechre nonstop prior to hitting the record button. Today it’s Merzbow, aka famed noise technician Masami Akita, whose Merzbuddha reportedly reflects a recent obsession with dub. Up at the Important site now, at importantrecords.com (check the “releases” page), are two minutes of industrial rollick, rumbling by on one busted axle.
