Sonic Protest 2006 [coll] – [Sonic Protest]

Flip this this over and take a look at the list of artists on this compilation. Face-melting. Sonic Protest is a yearly music festival which has been taking place in France since 2003. The festival features all sorts of weird music. Our favorite. The list of artists who have played this festival over the last ten years is mind numbingly awesome. And so is this collection. The variance here is massive..where do I start? expect a little bit of noise(1,15), all sorts of loops and layers (2,7), a touch of spazz(3), skronk+organ grooves (17), kooky lo-fi(4) and math too! (9)..ambiance ranging from the dissonant and tense (5,11,14) to the mesmerizing and lovely (8,13). Weirdo glitched out noise beats on 10. Dig the electro-schitzoid circus sounds on 12.. hardcore punk from out of nowhere on 16.. and a catchy song about Hitlers and Churchills on 18 (littered with FCCs.. which is awesome and too bad at the same time). I plan on putting this collection on continuos play and calling it my show. So. Good. Its absurd. -Surfer Rosa
