Sissy Spacek - Trash Staging LP

New Forces is proud to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Sissy Spacek with their latest LP, "Trash Staging." Sissy Spacek have been one of my favorite bands for a long time, with a genre-bending catalog that spans grind, noisecore, collage, tape music, free improvisation, and large ensembles. Throughout, they have injected a frantic intensity into their music that is as addictive as it is unrelenting. "Trash Staging" could not be more perfectly calibrated to what I love most about this band, here consisting of John Wiese and Charlie Mumma. The record takes the "grind" and the "noise" of this project and pushes both to the limit. The A-Side, which plays at 45rpm, unleashes a noisy grindcore assault, the drums blending with the electronics into a massive wall of sound. Feedback, blast beats, and screeching vocals pummel the listener for 5 perfect minutes. This is Sissy Spacek at their most extreme, sure to leave you out of breath. On the B-Side, which plays at 33rpm, the noisy tendencies of this project are taken to their logical conclusion, as they blast the listener with grappling electronics for nearly 20 minutes. Well-deserved comparisons to Pain Jerk and Incapacitants may give you an idea of the sort of noise perfection to be found here. Dynamic and free flowing, this is the sort of noise that can induce a trance-like state at high volumes. For those of you that always want your music louder, faster, and more intense, look no further. This will probably be as close as you're going to get. Your new favorite noise record, and your new favorite grind record, all in one convenient package.

Skin Graft - Cancerous 4-cassette Box

The little-heard masterpiece from Skin Graft, perhaps the definitive artist to emerge from the sludge of America's Midwest noise underbelly. Originally released in a limited edition by Pizza Night, New Forces is excited to make this box available once more. Over the course of 4 sixty-minute tapes "Cancerous" traverses a broader range of sonic territory than anywhere else in the Skin Graft discography, while still imbuing every second with the unique atmosphere that has often been imitated but never copied. Angry harsh noise, crackling ambiance, industrial clatter, and cold electronic decay are woven together into a bleak indictment of the post-industrial wastelands of middle America. Four hours isn't nearly enough to capture the simmering anger that is Skin Graft, but "Cancerous" is the closest we'll get.

Form Hunter - Form Hunter Cassette

The debut release from Form Hunter, a duo that comprises S. Aune (Breaking the Will, Kjostad) and W. Czerkies (Sunken Cheek, Goddaughter). Everything pushed defiantly into the red, pummeling scrap metal, mangled electronics, blasting tape hiss and shredded eardrums. Grinding you into the dirt, cutting to the bone with a rusty hacksaw, a reminder that noise feels best when it hurts. The first salvo, recorded at Noise Widow farms, for those forever chasing the euphoria only harsh noise can provide.

Wolf Creek - State Of Exception Cassette

The most exciting young noise duo in Japan, Wolf Creek manages to capture the unbridled intensity and fearlessness of the now-legendary groups that made Japanoise famous. Frantic electronics, screaming, harsh blasts of sound... this is a runaway train of noise that grabs you by the skull and pummels for more than twenty minutes. It is almost intimidating to hear an artist this young exercise complete control over some of the most extreme sounds you'll hear. This tape will remind you why you fell in love with noise in the first place. Audio nirvana, pure rock'n'roll.

Juhyo - Thought Reform Cassette

I saw Juhyo at one of the first live noise shows I ever attended. They set up two tables in a dark basement, overflowing with bizarre contraptions and seemingly home-built electronics, and proceeded to completely captivate me for nearly 30 minutes. I've been hooked ever since, and I'm happy to be releasing "Thought Reform," the latest in a catalog that prioritizes quality over quantity. Eluding easy genre categorization, Juhyo conjures dense clouds of noise, sometimes minimal, sometimes crushing. They are one of only a handful of artists that manage to combine the mechanical and the organic with such ease. The music, at different times, can evoke an abandoned factory or the top of a windswept mountain, mixing electronic pulses with washes of freezing noise. The final track might be the most anxiety-ridden piece of music I've heard all year, and is a perfect way to usher in the final months of 2018 as the weather starts to turn cold.

Only thing I remember is waking up with the worse headache I had ever had in my life. I had never taken medication and I hated swallowing pills but I had to start. I switched between all kinds of medication because I didn't take them like I was supposed to. One day I had just finished running errands and was at my sisters house when I fell to the floor again. I woke up with a bad headache and my 2 year old Niece leaning over my leg asking me if I was OK. By then I had just started college and was one the verge of losing my license. My school is an hour away from where I live so I really got set back because I wasn't allowed to drive until I got my seizures under control. I would love to know how others have handles their epilepsy!
