What our staff has to say: “Been a number of Masonna vinyl reissues in the past few years via Urashima, which have been great, but nothing is more exciting than an LP reissue of Frequency L.S.D. Nothing beats Masonna in the midst of manic vocal loop madness!” – Jon
Originally released on CD in 1998, Frequency L.S.D. is now presented on vinyl for the first time. Features 14 ear-wrenching, extreme Japanese noise tracks from Maso Yamazaki (Controlled Death). “Frequency L.S.D. is the best Masonna CD ever, and one of the top five noise albums of all time” –Matt Kaufmann, Exile Osaka. “The cult icon of Japanoise once again makes another proverbial anti-statement with his uniquely harsh blend of screams, feedback, and constantly changing blasts, rumbles and blips of sonic destruction… The main attraction of this release to new and old fans alike is the use of ’60s psychedelia in the warped textures of sound laid out in each track. Instead of being treated to a barrage of uncontrolled, harsh, and maddening noise, we are treated to lengthy explorations into the joys of warped synthesizer repetition and digitally altered radio frequency loops… the best noise release put out by any artist and, after just one listen, it’s not hard to hear why” Chronicles Of Chaos. Personnel: Maso Yamazaki – voice, microphone, EXPJ Ringmodulater, Colorsound pedals, ’60s fuzz noise canister; Spectral Audio Analogsynth, Sherman Filterbank, delay. 180 gram vinyl; edition of 400.
