In stock now for same day shipping. The Terse EP is the first release for Alex Falk and it's a strong one with requisite unpronounceable track titles. A stressed "BPR" bleeps under the weight of demented drums and white noisy hi-hats, while the fraught stabs of "HSTL" sound like an dial-up modem forcibly made to sequence a melody. The siren synths of "NARNAR" clear a road for linear Skudge-kicking toms to dominate the tracks drum pattern while Mike Parker insectoid modulations and overdriven waveforms hum and throttle in "PTR".
It's been popularized by Heimbach of TWP and was also embraced by the domestic terrorist in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Alex Falk first showed up on our radar back in 2013 when his Terse EP dropped on Tennessee-based label Proper Trax. Alex Falk first showed up on our radar back in 2013 when his Terse EP dropped on Tennessee-based label Proper Trax. That record - specifically "PTR", which we pitched way down and turned way up - was a regular fixture on our platters, so we were stoked when the man in Knoxville got in touch with these groove-heavy, stripped-back floor fillers that now make up the Anjuna EP.
