My noise/ambient/drone/spoken word group Clawing has an exclusive track on the Enough compilation released today by Trepanation Records. All proceeds from the compilation will be donated to Black Lives Matter.
Bandcamp today will be donating all revenue to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund as well, so it’s a great time to pick up many things, like the Clawing/Offerbeest split on Nailbat Tapes or the last Joyless Noise.
Out now courtesy of Trepanation Recordings. Cassettes are almost gone! Streaming and digital download for your displeasure are available. Drone, doom, gloom and more noise than you can shake a rotten stick at! Get it!
Preorders for Clawing’s Labour are now up at Grey Matter Productions.
Check out the new promo video for the upcoming Clawing album Labour from Gray Matter Productions. Out Oct. 31!

Two of the finest practitioners of unsettling and enveloping audioscapes team here for varied takes on drone, noise, and sonic wrangling.
Alabama’s Clawing is a collaboration between the prolific trio of Jeff McLeod (Gezoleen, Saragashum, Bert) Austin Gaines (Calques, Hadals, Japanese Women), and poet / spoken word artist Matt Finney (It Only Gets Worse). Their work here is an expansion on the ghostly world conjured on their masterful debut, Spectral Estate, with an unsettling aura that rests atop a current of anxiety and contemplation.
Offerbeest is one of the many guises for Dutch artist Maurice de Jong, perhaps best known for his work in the twisted black metal / experimental terror that is Gnaw Their Tongues. With Offerbeest, Maurice relies on analog synths to conjure bleak passages through demon haunts. High quality cassettes (edition of 100), digital downloads and streaming courtesy of Portland’s Nailbat Tapes.
