Isolated-I'm closer to Canada than to you(fm25)

Fluxus MT presents Isolated, Thompson Falls, MT's own noise artist's first physical release. In continuing from where his digital release, The Path Less Traveled, left off, Isolated creates cold, minimal almost to the point of HNW compositions. Dark, dense, bleak and alone feeling, this 22 minute track captures a focused approach to isolation in a rural area where one might not fit in completely. If silence is deafening then this is Isolated's way of dealing with it. At this point Isolated doesn't want to have a name nor an image outside of what Fluxus MT creates for him for his releases. Leave the identity to the sounds. Maybe in the future we will know more but for now its all about the sounds. This is an edition of 20 cdrs. each sleeve is handmade with a unique image on the cover and a quote from Rudyard, Kipling. Also check out his release The Path Less Traveled on Fluxus MT's bandcamp page. $5ppd in the states $7 international paypal to mattaggart@yahoo.com Thanks and Enjoy!

Contact Low / PCRV split(fm24)

Fluxus MT presents two Montana-based sound artists in one great 30 minute split. Contact Low is Kenneth Oblivion's Doom Electronics project. Contact Low has been an active presence in Montana's small but interesting noise scene for many years. First starting out in more of the noise realm and over the recent years has formed and refined into a beautifully executed post-industrial sound project. Slow heavy synth tones, heavy reverb and beautiful musical interludes all make up a larger darker picture. An extremely well executed and mature piece by one of the most talented artists I know. Definitely excited to see where Contact Low takes his sound and us with it. PCRV has been a staple for many years, 15 to be exact, in the noise scene and in Montana. His sound is always based in improvisation and heavy electronics. Within the last few years, PCRV's sound has explored such noise areas as pedal noise, synth drones, tape loops and junk metal noise and always keeping that signature sound. This release sees PCRV expanding the ideas that he played with on tour with Crank Sturgeon in the fall of 2015. A simple set utilizing a feedback loop as a low end base and two Trogotronic minisynths as sparring partners, hard panned right and left. These three tones create a huge wall of unnerving tones and chords, filling your head and ears with no room for thought. Its been a long time coming for these two artists to share a release with each and both are very excited its happening now. Edition of 50. artwork by Matt Taggart. $5ppd/$7international paypal to mattaggart@yahoo.com

Jason Soliday/Peter J Woods-Another Five Obstructions (fm20)

Fluxus MT proudly announces the release of this amazing split cassette between Jason Soliday and Peter J Woods. Two artists who are both unique in their approach to sound art and noise music. When I started this label I wanted to do a split between these guys. I have loved both artists works and consider both good friends. I also felt they would compliment each other very well as a split. I talking to each of them we all three decided it would cool to do a split where each of them created a set of rules for them to follow. guidelines and stipulations. Jason and Peter each created 5 rules for each to follow and this is the end result of them. This release shows every aspect of their sound and approach. It also has a sense of humor and playfulness to their sound. For people who love and follow each of their respective output this is a must have. A strong release for both artists. artwork is by Matt Taggart. edition of 50. $5 ppd to mattaggart@yahoo.com please include address.
