I’m a tad bit late about getting the word out about this, so my apologies. Trensmat Records seems to go back and forth on pressing methods – either they declare a finite number from the get-go or they press however many are pre-ordered. In the case of Stefan Jaworzyn’s Principles of Inertia, it seems like the label is going to be pressing however many are pre-ordered or they’re just saying you can pre-order now so you can have it shipped in April – it’s probably the latter but the wording is a hint unclear.

I’ve written about Trensmat releases on here a fair few times in the past and if you listened to any of those (Gnod, Stave, Whirling Hall of Knives, Astral Social Club, Love Cult Take Druss, A.M.), you already know that the label pushes the envelope to the extreme and with Principles of Inertia, it’s no different. Jaworzyn’s relentless wall of electronic cacophony will remind you why Trensmat is a force to be reckoned with. The pre-orders will be closing soon so if you want a copy, get to it. Check out the Principles of Inertia below via the YouTube stream to see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details



Having last been spotted in the mid 90s (post-Whitehouse/Skullflower/Ascension) Stefan Jaworzyn's musical output resurfaced in 2013 with two amazing EPs on his legendary Shock label. This LP continues to define his new mission of exploring the results of taking away an aging lunatic's guitars and locking him in a room full of electronic equipment.

Over forty minutes and four tracks 'Principles of Inertia' delivers an analog assault for the weirdest dancefloors. Kicking off with 'Biorigged', driven by a rugged breakbeat through bracing, atonal maelstrom of sheer, screeching, crisply contoured chirpin mind-bending tweaks. 'Festival Of Lies' delivers a swarm of blood curdling electronics underpinned by a squashed and distressed tract of wobbly bass and surging squall. Flip for the driving blistering juggernaut that is 'Gland Collector', a delirious proper napalmed ear-flosser. The LP closes with 'Apocalypse' which adds layers of bleeping LFO nastiness to relentlessly shuddering rhythms & blistering but lush harmonic noise. A dose of sonic bath salts straight to the ear.

Buyers also get additional extras for immediate download - digital copies of each track featured on the vinyl plus an additional digital only track ('Dawn of a New Ice Age'). Pre-orders will be immediately sent a link to this download package in WAV & MP3 format.
