Hastings of Malawi release their third LP. In this bleak vinyl mid-winter, the sleigh bells have been replaced with twelve handsaws, two motors and a dustbin, a duet between a walrus and an autistic child on an airplane, a chorus of pigs and Tasmanian devils, sounds from Japan, China, Africa, Italy, India, and Hawaii, digital voice synthesis, sound sculptures, randomly generated music, Geiger counters, free improvisation, and a rocket engine. As with their first two albums this record continues to explore themes of communication and communication breakdown. Is communication possible? What is the message? What is sound? What is on the surface of a record? What is beneath the surface of a record? Hastings of Malawi provide the answer to these questions in the form of a 38-minute poem called Axial Incidents. Marbled purple vinyl.
