Members Of Mutwawa Form Solo Projects, Get Weird And Harsh On Split Tape - RVA MAG

Don't panic, experimental music lovers--Mutwawa are still a going concern. However, the super-busy duo of Jason Hodges and Gary Stevens are never going to be satisfied with only one (or two, or three) musical projects happening at a time. Therefore, they both have solo projects as well, and those solo projects released a split cassette earlier this month. The names of these projects both register somewhere on the grossness spectrum--Gary's is called Rotted Ear, and Jason's is called Brown Piss. I'll leave it up to you which of those images seems more repugnant, but the appropriately-chosen title of their split, Rotted Piss, might be the gnarliest of all.

A word of warning--if you dig Mutwawa mainly because of their ability to create bizarre interplanetary dance beats, you won't find too much to enjoy here. Rotted Ear and Brown Piss are both full-on harsh noise--each project contributes one eight-minute blast of sonic anarchy to this cassette. Rotted Ear starts out by lulling you into complacency with several minutes of quiet ambient hums, before suddenly cranking the volume with some serious construction-noise damage--so don't be tricked into turning your car's tape deck all the way up when you're playing this one.



Brown Piss, on the other hand, doesn't engage in any deception, starting things off with some oscillating feedback that eventually evolves into static, distorted vocal sounds, and even what sounds like a very overdriven drum-machine beat that starts around the five-minute mark. Yes, even on this 16-minute noisefuck explosion of an EP, there's a little bit of dancing going on--if you can make it that far.

Stream the entire EP below, if you dare--and if you're into it, you can pick it up as a name-your-price download from Bandcamp. Then again, we all know real OGs rock tapes, so if that's you, you can order a copy of the Rotted Piss cassette from CNP Records for $6 by clicking HERE.

Record Review: Mutwawa - Subterrestrial Creeps - RVA MAG

Local electro-noise duo Mutwawa has released a new 3 track EP and it replicates a sound we’re all too fond of and familiar with.



With a heavy stress on the electro, the first track “Earth is Fucked” opens with synth drums and distorted bleeps and bloops. A vocal track comes in and out, I’m not sure if it’s something you could sing along to, but it’s catchy enough to have been stuck in my head over the weekend. Or maybe I just keep chanting “earth is Fucckkkkked.” Either way, I’m sold.

The second track, “Erosion,” follows the near-marching beat and delayed synth-horn style which first attracted me to Mutwawa. For those who have caught them live, the know the key to Mutwawa is their live show and I have a feeling this track would get the crowd swaying something fierce.
Typically dissonant, I look forward to being sweaty and confused at the next Mutwawa show when this track comes on. Clocking in at just over 5 minutes, the track ends with a great build-up which provides for some solid ear-drum splitting feedback.

“Caleuche” closes the short record, but is a great finale. Another great build up stretches across this 7+ min track. The pounding drum beat keeps a head nodding and the drones and feed-back bleeps are sure to warm the soul of any noise fan.

Mutwawa has done a lot with the broad genre of “noise” music. It’s their beats and live show which keeps fans like myself coming back for more. Even if you’re not a fan of raucous feed back jams, consider checking out Mutwawa whenever possible - they are a shining jewel in RVA’s scene.
Check them out when they open for Acid Mothers Temple at Strange Matter Apr 25
