♫♪  Moth Cock / Jerry Paper / Andy Boay - “Gatorboi” / “Come Over” / “Bullwhip Striders/Roll On River”

Taking a page from the C Monster post-book, I’m duel posting these hawt new Hausu Mountain tapes, because:

a. It’s nice outside
b. I’m staring out the window at muh bike
c. I’m feeling lazy, so
d. I’m saving time by only having to link Hausu Mountain once for both releases

And really, not to go patting myself on the back or nothing, but I’m kind of scribbling all over that page ‘cuz this is like a triple post, what with one of the releases being a split and all. It actually took me a really long time to figure out how to even format the title of this post. Does it make sense? Here, I’ll break it down for you:

Hausu Mountain, co-run by our bro, MUKQS has been spitting out tapes like crazy lately. The newest batch, including a tape from Ohio’s Moth Cock, which blasts through two sides of Black Dice-esque fuck-pop electronic manipulation, bending even the analog instrumentation into such bizarre territory as to leave the results entirely new and nearly unrecognizable. Listen to an excerpt from the “Gatorboi” side below:

Brooklyn’s Jerry Paper has been sadding up the stranger sides of that unique Brooklyn-style pop for years now with long sold out releases on small labels across the United States. “Come Over” from this split with tonstartssbandht’s Andy Boay, finds a bit of light peaking in through cardboard and newspaper clippings covering the windows; the breakdowns and change-ups finding Mr. Paper at a musical complexity beyond the tendencies of synth-and-drum-machine artists crafting pop songs by their lonesome. Come over:

“Bullwhip Strides/Roll On River” hits immediately with that familiar mountain of blown-out vocal harmonies, native to so many of Boay’s releases. Yet, despite the familiarity, Andy Boay is consistently a hard dude to pin down musically. With nearly twenty releases between his solo efforts and brotherly collaborative efforts as tonstartssbandht, the style is constantly shifting between angelic waves of voice, psychedelic jams, and blown-out punk rock. Not to mention the brother’s devotion to nearly all parts of the Beach Boys discography. Regardless, the man never disappoints, and this Hausu Mountain of squealing voices is no exception:

Shiiit. This was a three tape batch? Whoops. Well I’m not going back to include the William Selman tape now. Besides, a quadruple post? That might just break the Chocolate Grinder. Check that one out over here.
