Commercial Mouth is the debut LP from Jar Moff, an Athens-based artist working in collage forms. Following on from his previous remix on the Harald Grosskopf Synthesist/Re-Synthesist LP on RVNG, and a digital release for Leaving Records, this is his first full-length album. Both his visual and aural oeuvre take the form of cut-up and reformations in the manner of previous PAN stablemates like Joseph Hammer and Ghedalia Tazartes, remodeling the past in order to create something new out of the modern detritus, and nestles in nicely alongside the recent Diversions release from Lee Gamble. The result is a baffling-yet-functioning head-on collision between early plunderphonics and an abstracted futuristic hip-hop aesthetic. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas.
