Today I got a package in from Raw Dog Sreaming Press. Inside was a book (which I’ll be reading and doing a review on when I’m done) as well as a CD of Audiovile by Michael A. Arnzen.
In regards to Audiovile…
What can I say? Holy effeing hell this is some brilliant shit!
It reminds of the band 2NU from the early 1990’s, a surreal spoken-word narrative group.
But Audiovile has BITE. It sounds like something you would hear late at night in a darkened coffee shop, with wisps of old coffee wafting to your nose.
That is.. if the coffee shop was in the middle of the ZombieMall!
It has a very unique style, something from a David Lynch film.
It’s deep, grabs you by the ears and refuses to let go.
It’s obviously a niche item, but there are so many of us that dwell in that darkened niche that oh holy cow I can see this selling like… like… Zombies crave flesh right? This CD is the flesh to a zombie.
Stabbing for Dummies is easily one of the best tracks on the CD (I’d imagine of all the tracks I’ve heard thus far, this one will have parents and church goers going up in arms probably because they fail to see the artistic vision behind it).
The Cow Cafe’ is totally insane! I had to listen to this one 3 times and I’m still not tired of it!
