New House Of Tapes: Nu Tears

Nagoya’s House Of Tapes releases music at a fast clip, but credit to him for also keeping listeners on their toes. His latest album, Nu Tears, moves away from his recent return to crushing noise to embrace something that, while still cacophonous, hides something more dynamic within. Nu Tears mixes more earnest, soft moments with the fuzz, highlighted by the twinkling echoes and fidgety electronics of “Cure” or the squiggly whiplash of “Need Sucide,” a song running through at least three distinct sections. Of course, noise appears plenty too. “Hopefully Piece” smashes from the beginning, while even the semi-spacious “New Dawn” pulverizes. Get it here, or listen below.
