Ben Webster's guide to Insect Records' upcoming releases
Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins, 'Mama's Place' b/w 'A Friend' 7-inch
"These two are making transformational music for our lives, positive with the FONK. I'm very blessed to be able to work with two of my favorite artists and to be able to help get their music out there as well. She makes all of the beats – goes straight to your soul. 45rpm single art by Aaron Guadamuz."
Total Sound Group Direct Action Committee, LP
"I think this group is somewhere in-between Albert Ayler's living room and MC5's backyard. Earth-shattering. Featuring members of other bands that play instruments."
Aadm Our Hatley, LP
"This is an entire record made by Adam Hatley (Those Peabodys) playing drums of all kinds and various things with the only rule being he could not plug anything in, except the recording machine. Beats for days, and surprising song collages."
Reaganometry, 12-inch EP
"Reagan Van Matre, a founding member of Attack Formation, with a sound around Amon Tobin, Squarepusher, and Jaga Jazzist. It's simply breathtaking to hear the soundscapes from one of the decidedly different voices from the AF camp."
Attack Formation, 'Every Thing We Put Down Has It's Ups' LP/DVD
"After 12 years, the story of the band told through live performances and interviews on one DVD. With this being the final full-length, AF authors all of the songs from its 15-piece family internally, while all of the vocals are supplied from folks outside of the band."
