Here we have a marriage of themes/ideas between two notable artists
in the HNW/Harsh Noise fields. CONDO HORRO is an HNW project centered
around economic collapse, Failure and corruption within that field.
The walls are thick as concrete and perfectly match the ominous,
Emotionless oppression of the buildings on many of the artists album 
covers. MASTURBATORY DYSFUNCTION is a one woman fuck machine that does
Harsh Noise and HNW with prominent sexual themes, Typically on the 
sleazier (Or sleaziest) end of the spectrum. On this release they
find common ground in the phallic symbolism often attributed to 
highly erected skyscrapers, Monuments, Etc. Thus we have the aptly
titled "Phallitecture." The tape is beautifully presented despite the
somewhat bizarre album art, Which blurs the lines between erotica and
fine art and features depictions of muscular men in the nude with famous 
buildings in place of genitals. Craft-fully and professionally done by the 
excellent Petite Soles label, Which is curated by Scott Kindberg of HNW
project SHE WALKS CROOKED and many other fine projects. Let's get to it.

SIDE A.) CONDO HORRO:

I.) THRUST INTO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD:
First off I'd just like to state that CONDO HORRO, AKA Peter Keller,
is by far one of the best artists to come out of the Harsh Noise Wall
movement in my opinion. His work is absolutely engulfing and I've found
myself becoming totally immersed in the sonic structures he creates for
extended periods quite often. His walls have heavy doses of a quality I
can only describe as "sonic weight." If you are new to the artist (Or
even new to HNW) This is a solid place to start. "Thrust Into Your
Neighborhood" sounds like just that. This shit rips, Rapes, Wrecks
and recycles. HEAVY distortion at high doses. I can't do the crushing
immensity of C.H.'s work justice with words alone. It's something that
you truly have to experience on your own. The A side is just one solid
industrial-grade slab of grinding texture and billowing force. It only
seems to get more intense as it persists. C.H. has earned my respect
through the quality of multiple releases, The commitment to obsession,
And having the balls to call out shit for what it really is. This is
what HNW is all about. As far as HNW goes, This track is a banger.
The rumbling of a mass rock-slide across the face of the earth. The
collapse of all the hollow bullshit around us. Some people just want
to watch the world burn. CONDO HORRO sounds like he's demolishing it. 

SIDE B.) MASTURBATORY DYSFUNCTION:

II.) GAGGIN & GAGGIN:
On the ass end we have MASTURBATORY DYSFUNCTION to shower us in her
own brand of aural filth. (Oral filth?) M.B. is a nice young lady by
the name of Felicia Gaggins who's perverse personality puts even some
of the most misogynist men to shame. And man, I gotta tell ya...She
really goes in raw with no lube and even less mercy most often...But
here Gaggins takes a different route. Low rivers of quaking audio rot
over a bed of even deeper sub-bass currents. Somewhere in-between Death
Industrial, Drone, And Ambient Noise Wall. She's found herself a cozy
little crevice to dwell in on this one and the result is mesmerizing.
Thrusting sub-bass rhythms rush in over and over again pushing us deeper
and deeper into soothing soundscapes that entrance and intoxicate. The 
ebb and lull of lust tugging at our minds everyday channeled into the 
form of a squirming, Writhing mass. Subtle shifts reveal new pleasures
as you are swallowed by throbbing waves in a slow seduction. Distant
textures and noises peak and hide in playful flirtation. Again we have
an artist with a dedication to fetish and converting it to sound. This
sounds like the thrashing of a thousand bodies fucking in the sulfurous
pits of the abyss. Passionate pulses come with heat of the moment movement.
Strip down and get in.
