Nefarious Industries’ first release of 2020 will be delivered in the form of BRENNER & MOLENAAR’s Uninvited Savior, a massive droning collaboration between Christian Molenaar, the primary fulcrum of San Diego’s intense free-jazz/noise collective THOSE DARN GNOMES, and David Brenner, hostile alchemist of New York City-area harsh experiment GRIDFAILURE. On Uninvited Savior, these two experimentalists take a sidecar to their usual outlets to collaborate on a spacious vortex of imploding spiritual psychosis.
The medieval wheel of pestilence broken in three: the trigeminal pestis lemniscus, communicating pain, heat and feeling from the eyes, the face and the mucous membranes. Epithelial noise piled high atop a lamina propria of reappropriated cult noumena, riddled with the stabwounds of infinite lacerating rete pegs and micro-papal papillae. Encased in the acoustic gingiva of Gothic organum and perforated by spires of extra-liminal electroacoustics, a foundational layer of pious hierophants and haruspices scream down the moon.
Infusing vocals, electric/acoustic/bass/pedal steel guitars, keyboards, synthesizers, organs, xylophone, harmonica, 1970s cult field recordings, resynthesis, tape manipulation, contact mic and power electronics effects, and other instrumentation tactics embodied in a vaporous haze, the three lumbering movements range between twenty and thirty-five minutes in length. All said, Uninvited Savior suspends the listener within its abyssal vacuum for more than eighty-one minutes.
Recorded by David Brenner at The Compound in Valley Cottage, New York and Christian Molenaar at Apollo’s Crotch in San Diego, California, the final mix/master of Uninvited Savior was performed by Molenaar, and the cover art/layout handled by Brenner.
