Fresh Stream



“All Is Wrong” is Sete Star Sept’s 17-minute noisecore magnum opus. The track, originally released in 2012 as a miniCDr and subsequently issued as a cassette in various countries, finds a new home as a 12” single on SPHC – released for their 2014 US tour. Here we find the noisegrind of Gero Me taken to a more noisecore extreme, streaming together those 1-3 second bursts of grind with piercing feedback in between into one single track. This format creates a stop/start noisecore that borders on harsh noise in its abstraction, with the bass feedback often taking sensory control. If grindcore/noisegrind is more your thing, then fear not, Sete Star Sept have countless other releases out this year. So the question is why by another copy of All Is Wrong? Because of the b-side. Flip over the record and you’ll find “All Is Wrong” accompanied by an acoustic version, changing up the duo’s drum-bass format with acoustic guitar and drums. In this new set-up, the guitar bursts and free-form drumming create something approaching free jazz, similar to “Destination of Sorrow” of Visceral Tavern. A not to be missed release from one of the hardest working bands on the planet.
