Feeding Tube is chuffed to present the first vinyl offering from Moscow's berserk Asian Women On The Telephone. Formed as a duo in 2007, they have since expanded (in all directions) to assume sextet form, with stage names worthy of Smegma -- Oriental Yid (drums, guitar), Good Enough Freundin (guitar, vocal, drums), Brown Polizei (keyboards, voice, bass), Divine Gift (percussion, voice), Mutter Land (drums, percussion, bass), and Lewd Primat (bass, voice). Many of their insane, extremely theatrical performances are available for peeping on YouTube, and they have quite a bit of music available for download as well. But let's face it, records are the way to go. And Ivan is a doozy. The closest easy comparison to extant sounds would be to some of the weirder outfits of the Neue Deutsch Welle -- with hints of Malaria!, Abwarts, Die Tödliche Doris and various other Zick Zack, Monogam and Pure Freude label outfits. The music is alternately spacey and rhythmic with classic neo-industrial underpinnings, sputum-rich vocals and thick gobs of string and/or key noise. Of course, we can't understand a goddamn thing they're singing, but that does nothing to detract from the rich sonic palette they create. Squeaking like Kleenex one moment and throbbing like Mouth Crazy the next. Impenetrable song-titles, mysterious graphics, zero information... what more could any fan of mystery aktion ask for? Edition of 300 copies.
