Disorienting, discomforting and just, well, really far outside of what you’re used to. The Wear Black EP is a nightmarish trip, with kicks compressed and distorted almost beyond recognition, slowly evolving into something you can almost understand. Next time you go to a satanic rave, feel free to bring one of Mourn’s 250 tapes.

6/10 Tom Customer review, 8th June 2018
Not to be confused with the Catalonian band Mourn who are making a name for themselves being PJ Harvey impersonators, this is Mourn (Toby Ridler & Vickie McDonald) whose tape Wear Black was released on German tape label ZONE Collective. About as far-removed from the angsty grunge of their Catalonian name-sakes, this Mourn what to fuck with your ears as much as possible so the Wear Black EP features 2 lo-fi tracks (presumably recorded on cassette by cassette for cassette) of four-to-the-floor beats, with sonic booms, scratching tapes loops ('Under the Earth' and 'Perish With the Dogs of Reason') and 2 tracks of more impressionistic noise book-ending the tape. It's all thoroughly unpleasant which depending on your disposition makes it either a must-by or an avoid-at-all-costs kind of release.
