Ushi 008  The Rita - The Nylons of Laura Antonelli 4CD wooden Box 39 € 

'Here we have The Nylons of Laura Antonelli , a multi-item release by The Rita , Sam McKinlay . The version you have here is its third issue. This release is the sound of different models of nylon for legs used according to Sam's own purposes. 
If filled with a spirit of non-literalism, what is "Laura Antonelli" ? Forward movement-wise I think of it as a series of inhibitors of varying volume. You can conceive of silence being the underlying reality on this release, and it allows you to feel each cell of the nylon fabric for what it is, which is basically a player in an offensive line guarding the object, the leg. Each sound could be received as a tiny scrum with the mic or the hand and the nylon.
The dimension (paradoxically) is added by the flatness of the nylon. What in forward movement is received as a struggle along tiny cells is properly interpreted when considering both forward movement and thickness of contact as a rappel against the flatness of the nylon. It's each of these things at once continually for the length of the release. 
It's perfect. The sound and duration are perfect. It's impossible to stop thinking about the paradox I described. Everything I said in the last two paragraphs is everything I feel about The Nylons of Laura Antonelli , excepting the content of this paragraph. When something is perfect and there is a finite amount to say, that's what you say, and this paragraph, where I describe the recordings as being perfect, is also necessary, and terminal. Sound work is unique and necessary and it provides a result that is affectively different from everything else.''
Gabrielle Losoncy , 2019
Ten years after its first release in an eight-cassette box, The Rita 's masterpiece The Nylon of Laura Antonelli is reissued in a black wooden box with laser engraving that includes 4 CD wallet with full color artwork, original 2009 insert, a foldable color poster and a certificate numbered in 300 copies.

Ushi 009  Vomir - 6CD wooden BOX 48 €

Vomir announces the cover box, with laser engraving on  black wooden, who is  the best HNW artist around. HNW stands Harsh Noise Wall , better known as Wall of Noise, and Vomir is Romain Perrot , who's best known for his habit of wearing a black bag over his head when playing live. Six solid CD that comes with a wooden box, resolutely occupy a narrow and strictly defined dynamic band, with shifting textures of distortion and heavy low end. In retrospect it's surprising it's taken Noise artists this long to notice the appeal of stasis its ear-fooling potential amplifies minor structural changes and renders small sound events disproportionately large, as well as allowing them to generate a genre variant which is both intensively aggressive and strangely calming. Nothing is progress. Everything repeats itself endlessly and nothing stands out as important. Nothing more should be undertaken. We will never arrive at the final destination. The truth is over , comes the loneliness. These are definitive new CDs of total static harsh noise, crusting, crushing, crackling of 75 minutes each by the master of the HNW Romain Perrot .
No ideas, no changes, no development, no entertainment, and no remorse.
Urashima continue the tribute of the genre with more than seven  hours of monolithic HNW on six CD with an astonishing black  wooden box. Each single CD comes in black wallet with no graphics plus individually numbered certificate in 200 copies and foldable color poster with picture and text in French and English.
