Wetware Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Norman website visitor, meet Automatic Drawing. It’s the debut LP by Wetware (Roxy Farman & Matthew Morandi). The pair first appeared on the New York industrial scene in 2015, hamming it up with intense and provocative live shows. Distilling such live energy to record can’t be easy, but they’ve nailed the production of these compelling, clattering rhythms and discomforting vocals. There’s even a whiff of vintage industrial pastiche.
Noise. Energy. Techno. All these descriptors belong to Roxy Farman and Matthew Morandi, especially when they get together to make music as Wetware. Roxy does the shrieking and writhing and Morandi conjures up sounds akin to gamelan from his modular synthesizer. Their Salpinx record is an authentic representation of their grindingly raucous live sound. Time to get energised. On BANK records.
