UTR 008: Yporhtnasim - Psalms of Self Mutilation c20

New release from Delaware, Ohio's Yporhtnasim titled Psalms of Self Mutilation. 

Artist's Description:  This project was created to make the most uncomforting sounds as possible. Listeners should have a feeling of sickness, emotion, pain, and hatred as a result. I use samples during the noise to add to this feeling and to get my message across. I don't like people, I hate mankind, I hate society.

Blackened dark ambient/harsh noise.  Edition of 22 dubbed onto type 1 master cassettes, splatter-painted with cadmium red acrylic paint.  Some tapes bloodier than others.  $5ppd for US, $5+$5 shipping for Canada, $5+$10 shipping for international.  Send orders to mbdcontact160@gmail.com

UTR 006: Disleksick/Sorcerer Torturer Split c10

The newest Urgent Telepathy release is the most intense one yet!  A split between London, Ontario's noise punk legends Disleksick and Dayton, Ohio's master of gory. brutal noisecore, Sorcerer Torturer.  Disleksick kicks things off on side vomit(A), with their trademark assault of screams, feedback, and blastbeats.  There are even a few slow parts, a rarity for this notorious group.  After six years of activity, this is their 131st release, hopefully with more to come.  Side Piss(B) is Sorcerer Torturer performing his combination of goregrind and noisecore at it's finest.  Blast beats, harsh noise terrorism and vocals delivered straight from the toilet close off this c10.  The founder of Toilet Experience Records has never sounded nastier.  Below is a sample of this disgusting release.

https://soundcloud.com/urgenttelepathyrecordings/disleksick-sor-tor-sample

Edition of 100 recorded onto white type 1 master cassettes.  Proceeds from this release are currently going towards the restoration of Papa Chinn's Chili Emporium, which was vandalized during Michigan Grindfest III.  $5 ppd for US, $5+$10 international.  Send paypal orders or general questions to mbdcontact160@gmail.com.

UTR 005: Crowhurst Nothingness c60

Urgent Telepathy Recordings is proud to announce it's newest release from Crowhurst! 

Crowhurst is the sound art project of Jay Gambit. Based in Los Angeles by way of Philadelphia. Since the inception of the group, the recorded output has totaled over 35 albums of original material. Labels throughout the USA, UK, Spain, Japan and elsewhere have released these works alongside artists like Merzbow, Prurient, John Wiese, Kevin Drumm, Acid Mothers Temple, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Cock ESP, Brutal Truth, Wolf Eyes and Aaron Dilloway.

The group's innovative recording style of re-assembling and collaging tracks from artists around the world, as well as their explosive blend of performance and multimedia art during their live performances have garnered attention from publications such as Tiny Mix Tapes, Nylon Magazine, Heathen Harvest and CVLT Nation as well as a number of other national and international publications. 



This album is a very unique take on the Dark Ambient genre.  Starting off with ethereal sounds that lock you into a trance that soon crescendo into an all out harsh noise assault.  The b side starts off with a live recording, to give you a glimpse of the Crowhurst live experience that is not to be missed.  All tapes are $5 ppd for US, $5+$10 for international.  You can check out the album here on bandcamp.  http://crowhurst.bandcamp.com/album/nothingness  If you decide that you just want to download the album, please consider throwing a couple bucks Jay's way.  He will be touring the east coast all throughout April and any little bit of money will go a long way for him.  Tour dates are listed below.

UTR 002: Luthor the Geek c40

The newest release from Urgent Telepathy Recordings has just arrived!  Luthor the Geek's I Like Girls Who Have Been Raped More Than Girls Who Have Not Been Raped is an interesting and sometimes disturbing listen as the title suggests.  Luthor the Geek (or sometimes known as Daddy Luthor) has been a staple of the experimental music scene for many years, having worked with the likes of Iovae and C. Spencer Yeh of Burning Star Core.  On this cassette, Luthor sings tales of heartache, drug use, and riding around country roads listening to Metallica.  Stylistically a very lo-fi album with odd sounding guitars and percussion instruments and a healthy dose of oscillators and feedback.  You can listen to a sample here https://soundcloud.com/urgenttelepathyrecordings/song-of-death Released in edition of 22 c40s.  $4 ppd for US orders, $4+$10 for shipping international orders.  Send orders to mbdcontact160@gmail.com
