The Rita Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Rita at Norman Records
The Rita has always been festishistic, obsessive, harsh and monumental, but I’m not sure we’ve seen such extreme explorations of these themes from the project before. Toe Cleavage (now there’s a direct title for you) is a seven-cassette set of endlessly howling harsh noise wall, packaged in a wooden box with a book, a poster, and some inserts. Don't wait around, only 99 copies!
The Rita is a project truly committed to harsh noise, often tending towards harsh noise walls. As with most Rita albums, The Lilac Fairy has an intense and festishistic focus on the female form (here the tutu), though it’s worth noting that The Rita is now a two-piece, featuring an actual woman! Two LPs-worth of fierce howling crackle, released in an edition of 199 on Urashima with lots of inserts.
Harsh fucking Noise from The Rita, in a set of works created in response to the sculptural art of Megan Miller. Queen Sheets is thematically inspired by nylon, and the original sound sources beneath the dense walls of noise are of nylon rubbing against brick in Miller’s piece. 199 copies of fancily packaged vinyl.
