Desiccant “Silica Gel demo”
Desiccant is a newly formed duo featuring Andy Borsz of Slasher Risk & Mat Rademan aka Newton. You know them both. On their own they each have found a unique place in the North American Underground Experimental/Freak/Noise/Weirdo scene since the late 1990s/early 2000s. Now they join forces as Desiccant, creating the sort of grimy output only possible from decades of dropping earplugs in beer and sweat-soaked basements. Weaving a bleak tapestry with samplers, tape loops, synthesizes, and rubbish, Desiccant aims to guide listeners through a wasteland of music concrete and harsh noise into a dramatic and engulfing New American drone. It’s the deliberate and aged sound of failed relationships, putting the family pet to sleep, and holding the hand of a sick loved one. This is your soundtrack for dying in a desert and not caring.
60 minute sound collage created by Newton (Mat Rademan of Breathmint). Not known for performing longer than fifteen minutes at a time. Newton demonstrates a solid long form technique blending field recordings into harsh cut up textures throughout the two thirty minute sides. – Jeff Hartford (Noise Nomads, Bonescraper Recordings)
