Zeta Sect – Portals [PHXS19]

‘Portals’ coming by Brooklyn based Zeta Sect (AKA Heidi Sabertooth & R Gamble) which features 70 minutes of blistering vintage drum machines contrasted against a haze of synthesis. Zeta Sect invites the listener to experience a fresh perspective with the insurgency of beautifully composed synth-wave and synth pop treads into new and unique territory for your body and soul. The deadpan delivery of spoken word passages in conjunction with the intricate use of delay blends the world of synth inspired genres with a distinct tinge of 1980’s industrial flavour. Recorded 2018-2021 in Sag Harbor, Black River, & Brooklyn, NY.

VA – Archives Du Coeur Humain [PSR005]

The latest in the synth-heavy sludgedown from Public System Recordings, invites a new cast of characters into the dungeon dance. The common theme throughout this sampler of titans of industrial the world over, seems to be wide, slowed down melancholy. Some tracks take a floor-friendly jump, while others demand the attentive consumption of a more serene setting. These two discs are packed with dynamic, chugging, and forward thinking jams that make you mesh all things PSR is passionate for.
