Uninvited Records puts out some fantastic releases (and I'm not just saying that because Joe did a reissue of the first Bloated Subhumans tape), and this tape by Swedish noisecore project, Erectile Dysfunction Unit, is no exception. Clocking in a little under 9 minutes, this 68 track glimpse into sexual dysfunction straight from hell kicked my ass, and it'll kick yours too.

When I saw this release on Uninvited's bandcamp page, my first thought was "With a name that good, they better not fuck it up," and fortunately they did not. Like most good noisecore, the material on this release feels like one long track, with each part continuing where the last left off in an abrupt and abrasive pattern of sloppy stop/starts, feedback, drum stick counting, flurries blasts beats, and indecipherable riffs in a seemingly endless progression until it all falls apart and the tape is over. So, obviously, it's a winner.

This is one of my favorite things I've heard this year so far. I got a copy in a trade (for some things from my label Estranged Communications), and I highly recommend grabbing a copy quickly since it's a run of 50.
