Orca, Attack! also put together a guest for I Heart Noise in honor of the release. The mix includes a smorgasbord of spoken word, synthesized voices, music made for commercial purposes, music made for educational/instructional purposes, videogame music, and some other stuff that we just thought was cool, with artists ranging from Frank Ocean to Gwendolyn Brooks to Stone Temple Pilots to Throbbing Gristle to Susan Stone…Check it out in Mixcloud and see the full tracklist over on the I Heart Noise website.
Thank you to Pete Murphy for including “Harm” and “Baleen Executioner” off Farewell, Doomed Planet! on I Heart Noise’s latest mixtape. It’s in fantastic company alongside tracks from Xqui, modus pony, Netta Goldhirsch, boycalledcrow, Equinox, qualchan, and more. See the full tracklist on the website and listen on Mixcloud or below.
Thanks also to Toxic Chicken and Tak Tent Radio for including “Waking Up With a Cat On My Face” from the Front & Follow ISOLATION AND REJECTION VOL 1 compilation on the latest episode of Culture as a Dare. It’s part of a great mix including underground icons St James Infirmary, vylter, Maryanne Amacher, Petridisch, and Holly Herndon. Tracklist on the Tak Tent site and audio on Mixcloud/below!
The compilation opens wistfully with “The Heart Sounds Like Heavy Artillery” by the New Orleans based electronic composer Elizabeth Joan Kelly. A suitably gentle opening track built around an ambient soundscape with an almost industrial sounding rhythm.
Strange Selectors is available for pre-order now as a digital download and/or (gorgeous) CD, and releases on September 28. Proceeds go to Médecins Sans Frontières. Still need convincing? Read the rest of David’s review over on the I Heart Noise blog.

“…an ethereal collection of songs framed around a familiar compositional ethos, but this time around, with an additional no holds barred urgency regarding the environmental state of our planet. And while most releases centered around dystopian futures usually only prophesize about possible catastrophic possibilities, Kelly’s music and imagery on ‘Farewell, Doom Planet!’ stand out because it places the listener directly in an environmentally tortured future that’s already here.”

“Always impressive wherever the work of this artist pops up, Voyeur doesn’t go under the reader unnoticed as well. A full on deranged feeling of music that is dense and all over the colorful audio spectrum. Beautifully designed, moving, innovating and scarily surreal like a short story of uncomfortable creepiness in which Elizabeth goes into the mind of a voyeur and channels the findings through excellent music.”
