about

choc.474 Coughing Constance presents a companion release to choc.470. Recorded inside Wino Lodge during March 2020 using the same set up as used by Nyoukis. Further dollops of loop damage which aim to disorientate and frazzle in the nicest possible way. Give thanks to the tapes!

"Constance has deft fingers, putting her sounds together with a maestros touch, altering the pace and density so that one minute you’re being subdued by a Victorian opera singer coming though a scratchy cylinder, slightly sped up and destroyed and the next the clip-clop of horses hooves before this all melts into a gloopy swamp of mushy-ness where you feel like your falling through a glycerine filled, glass walled, twenty ton holding tank. I suspect cassette tape and loop machines, the rubbing of strings and things I don’t understand. I also suspect I may have heard one of the best releases to pass through these hands this year." - Idwal Fisher

originally released as a CDr in an edition of 50 in April 2020
