DISTRO: Rick Weaver, Human Host, and the Sonic Youth Boys

Rick Weaver - 'Black Medicine' OST c44 (MORE Records)
"If there ever was a vaudeville of noise, Weaver is it. Through a variety of guises and collaborative projects (see Form a Log, Dinner Music, the Ruined Frame, or New Flesh for starters), Rick Weaver has been at the epicenter of some of the most eccentric and oddball sounds in the experimental scene. From lo-fi junkyard symphonies and free jazz-leaning psychoses to freewheeling acoustic balladry, Weaver has more than dabbled in a number of disconnected and disjointed sounds. Now returning under his own name and on seminal left-field electronic label More Records, Weaver has created an original soundtrack entitled Black Medicine to accompany his own film of the same name (due out in 2014). Sections... evoke stream of consciousness ramblings, acid-induced segues of rambling tribalism, Casio cold wave, and haunted free noise." -Bobby Power
