Featured Guest

Stepping into the session this week US based label Orb Tapes.

Orb release a wide range of experimental and extreme music and, as such, are not limited to any single genre or style, an ethos much like our own at Mantis Radio and Darkfloor. From ambient to harsh noise, free jazz to grindcore, drone to plunderphonics, and everything in between, Orb Tapes’ focus on a blend of experimentation and extremity. I’ve been following their output for a few years after coming across the excellent punk channelling hardcore band BRICKS who put out their self titled debut in early 2017.

Label head James (Teuthis Galore, and one half Moth Bucket) has put together a mix of current and forthcoming material. A selection that is adventurous, heavily abrasive, noisy, and most very captivating.

For show number 291 we welcome Orb Tapes.
