My Disco Vinyl, CD & tapes by My Disco at Norman Records
This is a quintessentially Downwards release: take original tracks from a tightly-austere post-punk group like My Disco and hand them over to tough industrial producer Regis on the one side and lord of ambient darkness Lustmord on the other. All that leaves very little room for light: perfect. Severe Remixes is pressed in an edition of 500 12”s.
Australian trio My Disco have taken minimal sound to the limit on their new album, Severe. It makes for uncomfortable listening at times with dark drones and silence juxtaposed with pounding, stabbing rhythms. The band worked with film composer Cornel Wilczek at the controls which allowed the band more freedom to experiment with studio sounds. Severe is the band’s best album yet.
