"Daniel Voigt is well known in the underground as the man behind the wonderful Sicsic Tapes label. His Hering und seine sieben Sachen tape on Cae-sur-a from 2011 was one of my favorite releases by that fine label, and he has subsequently released material on Cosmic Winnetou and Sicsic. Voigt's side of this split tape (entitled "Desiring Machines" utilizes four walkman cassette recorders as the primary sound sources, augmented by pedals and mixer treatments, and it's a zoned-out beauty of a piece. Drones, voices, and odd sonic interjections all flow together into a ceaselessly interesting, rapidly-shifting river of sound. "

"Hering und seine sieben Sachen/Parashi: split (Skell)
Killer split c40 from Germany’s Hering und seine sieben Sachen (Daniel Voigt/SicSic Tapes) and New York’s Parashi (Mike Griffin) comes to us via Griffin's own label, Skell LLC. Hering’s side consists of dark and hazy tape loops performed with 4 Walkmen, and I really hope that when he performed it he was standing up with all four clipped to his belt. Intense and seamless soundtrack for your fever-dream hallucinations. Start it right when the lion roars for the third time. Griffin keeps the dark and gritty vibes going on the flip but stretches out a bit more with some wall-to-wall cascading drones, mechanical whirring loops, and what sounds like guitar string scrapes and digital processing. Griffin keeps a heavy focus and a solid vibe going throughout. All killer, no filler."
