ALBUMS / EPs / ETC…

TREPANATION I is the first instalment in a series, a starting point. 

this album contains samples and interpolations from Pop Will Eat Itself, Dawn Of Midi, Gabriel Araújo, the Lost Highway (film), Heartbeat In The Brain (Film), and a child’s toy. DIGITAL ONLY FOR NOW.

written and produced and recorded in a month, then refined over a couple more. this album/mixtape/whatever has some of my most straightforward – and weird – stuff on it. bangers and mash. loosely, it’s an album about treading water, being adrift, and finding footing in ether. Edition of 30 photobooks with a digital download. SOLD OUT.

in 2017, i turned 36 years old, and to celebrate, i released the 7HR33 51X M1X74P3 in an extremely limited edition of physical copies. it’s an odd collection of tunes, pieced together as both a mind-dump and a thank you. it contains 6 new tracks, a long ambient track in 6 parts, and 6 remixes. get it? if you were lucky enough to get yr hands on a physical copy, you got the full version, and if you weren’t, there’s an abridged version available to stream on the various streaming services out there. Edition of 36 cassettes with a digital download. SOLD OUT.

APOSTASY is an album about the occult, personal magickal practice, Eastern European folklore, sexual liberation, rejection of christian morality, and… werewolves. produced by Yung Gutted, the album veers between hard slapping bangers and off-kilter atmospherics, with lyrics that dig deep into the garbage psyche to pull out important flashes of truth among intentional and unintentional misdirects. Edition of 166 vinyl LPs. First 66 copies with a special letterpress print by O Underworld! Press. Special Prints: SOLD OUT.  “Regular” Edition still available here.   

on NØ FUTUR(E), garbageface is looking back and ahead. it’s an album about the weight of the past, the fear of the future, and the freedom of the now. It’s also garbageface’s most collaborative album to date, with guest rhymes by guelph’s Noah23, toronto’s D-Sisive, hamilton’s Lee Reed and Mother Tareka (a.k.a. Flowtilla), and peterborough’s Frostbitten; and beats produced by Peterborough’s Matt.

NØ FUTUR(E) came out on 6/1/2016. the physical release is a four-track 7″ (featuring a 12×18″ poster with art, lyrics, and liner notes on one side, and a playable 3D ouija board on the other, drawn by THEE Robb Mirsky), with an extended 13-track digital mixtape. Edition of 300 vinyl EPs. 100 on clairvoyant clear, 200 bottomless pit black. Clear records are sold out, but black still available here.

OBDURACY is the first mixtape by garbageface, and represents their first foray into using samples of other people’s music, and was gestated and birthed from september 2013 to february 2014. 

featuring inspiration from magrudergrind, smashing pumpkins, nine inch nails, marc maron, why?, death grips, hall & oates, jay z, god lives underwater, werner herzog, alain goraguer, and alfred hitchcock. Edition of 100 casettes. SOLD OUT.
