Prolaps - Pure Mud Volume 7 - New Cassette 2020 Hausu Mountain USA Red Tape - Experimental Electronic
Prolaps is the Brooklyn-based duo of Bordella Biledriver and Metatron Starsore. The first thing they want you to know is that they are NOT a cult. They are sound therapists. Maybe their therapeutic methods fall well outside of convention, but they want to bring you peace of mind. They also want to make it clear that while their bodies might appear similar to those of Kill Alters vocalist / producer Bonnie Baxter and Machine Girl mastermind Matt Stephenson, it definitely isn’t them. The duo’s debut album Pure Mud Volume 7 screeches out of the Hausu Mountain volcano as an unholy hybrid of vocal meltdowns and chopped-and-stitched bursts of noise texture, all planted over bonkers beats that twist their way through untold permutations of electronic dancefloor production. Their music feels like an overstuffed collage of extreme gestures and fragmentary ideas frankensteined together from the worlds of nü metal, jock jams, jungle, acid house, rock rap, and harsh noise. Lead vocal lines in the form of screams, singsong taunts, and martial proclamations clash with the cyborg hooks of finely diced voice fragments. The unrelenting pace makes distinctions between each “song” less important than the pure confusion conveyed by the constant juxtaposition of far-flung genres and queasy moods that manifest with the fierce brevity of grindcore and the scrolling eclecticism of a mixtape recording.
