People Like Us / Porest
New from avant garde imprint Discrepant comes an LP in the 'two artists, a track each per side' split format, both exploring found sound collage like nobody else. Both pieces focus on the medium of radio as a means to source and disseminate sound, exposing its unpredictable and strangely dislocating nature.
Porest is the audio-scramble project of Mark Gergis, who works for international reissue-lords Sublime Frequencies. Through this work, Gergis spent a lot of time in Syria, where parts of Modern Journal Of Popular Savagery was recorded. This album, the first Porest record in a decade, is a wild and darkly funny collage of samples, odd-pop and robot-voice drama. Out on Nashazphone.
