HIVE MIND record release party
& free in-store performance
Black Friday, November 25th, 2011 @ 8pm

"It’s dense stuff; breathtakingly thick, enveloping sound. It’s hard to make the case for an album of what is essentially variations on roaring, growling noise to those who aren’t already sold by that description alone – but this really is gripping. No “wall noise” or one dimensional static blast here; there is a huge amount going on, each small part making up the whole. This truly immersive, expansive record is without a doubt one of the best noise albums of the year, and is a must for anyone of a curious, abstract inclination." -- FACT Magazine

"By far the most opaque Spectrum Spools release to date, Elemental Disgrace will pull listeners from the relative safety of modern electronica’s escapist climate and immerse them into a disorienting, nerve-ticking murk. This aptly titled long-player consists of two side-long pieces. Its earthen drones -- slowly shifting, stratified and charged with post-industrial electronics -- draws riveting parallels to man’s continued assault and pillaging of the natural world. Focused and brutal, Elemental Disgrace nevertheless maintains a unique sort of beauty—a celebration of decay as natural force, perhaps— and represents a dark respite from the zoned-out banalities of so much current experimental electronic music." -- East Village Radio
