Adult cartoon network and occasional purveyors of excellent music Adult Swim have capped off 2016 by releasing a compilation album entitled Noise. The project was first announced last week along with the release of a new single from noise-hip-hop group clipping., and the full release is now available.
The compilation was arranged by Adult Swim writer Laura Sterritt, who envisioned a project where music from all genres would come together under the common umbrella of essentially being noisy as fuck. From experimental electronica like Arca to Japanese metal courtesy of Merzbow himself, the sonic diversity and feedback-induced heart attacks are pretty damn fantastic throughout.
