We here at Melters are beyond excited to bring to your attention VIOLENT CHANGE’s amazing new long-player, A Celebration of Taste. On this record, GLADYS BLEYLE and fellow noise maker/kindred spirit STERLING MACKINNON have crafted a seriously weird, strangely beautiful sound. In Celebration, they still observe the rites of their devout GBV worship, while bringing in experimental, abstract= sounds à la Flying Saucer Attack or the Dead C. Though there are certainly fantastic standalone tracks, this is a record that is meant to be digested as a whole, and was thoughtfully sequenced with this in mind. The record washes over you with an eerily effective combination of true pop song craft and studied excursions into otherworldly noise. When it all comes to a close after a brief twenty-two minutes, you will have awoken from a baffling dream. Moments of beauty and sincerity float alongside harsh noise and submerged words—it’s up to you what to make of it. Bleyle and Mackinnon have crafted a rare thing: a record of unpretentious, unfussy significance, and we couldn’t be prouder to present it. Edition of 500 copies.
