‘Dead September’ is the third LP on Rural Isolation Project by Austin noise-punks Quttinirpaaq. Like a record you might write it a particularly tense and sweaty dream, this is unapologetically painful, industrial, heavy rock noise with unrecognisably distorted vocals and punishing guitar sounds over distant, angry electronic beats.
Limited white vinyl LP on Rural Isolation Project. Edition of 300 copies.

Here’s a heart-warming record of psychedelic industrial weirdo punk noise from Texas. It pretty much starts with the intensity dial whacked to the max and just builds from there. Opener ‘Bleed Out’ is a hard-arsed driving rock beat with layers of trebly guitar feedback and undecipherable vocals getting warped by delay into chipmunks on speed/ eeyore on mogadon levels of strangeness, Gibby Haynes style. The whole track does that for four minutes before cutting brutally into ‘White Witch’, which has more wah-cocked-to-the-max guitar squall and vocal dementia, this time messing up a distorted electro bass line. And the tracks just pour out like this with very little dynamic variation; just dumb beats covered in squally noise and trippy effects. The effect though is strangely hypnotic.
Even though it sounds like it might be a one-man job, the album reminds me not only of fellow Texans the Butthole Surfers, but also has something of the sci-fi sleaze of Chrome and the debauched repetition of Ministry– at times even making all of these aforementioned bands sound like pillars of reasonableness and restraint. So there you have it, weird and nasty fun for everyone.
