The desolation that lies below the window is briefly overshadowed by the light that pours through from behind the curtains. Approximately 30 microchips lay scattered across the ground, chained together by endless heaps of cables and leads. The intense beams of light illuminate poorly soldered joints, abandoned from their steel cases ages before.
A beautifully hazy melody peers through a senescent tube. On the other side of the cables is Gerald McKay, songwriter of the band Rayning. Listen through history’s microchips as dream pop gloss pours out of tracks like “Blanket” and “Your Eyes”.

Crystalline digital ice glazes over the piles of rejected liquid crystal displays from the years when owning a physical television still seemed nostalgic. The slums of neo-Osaka are cold, minimal, and grey. Concrete is splayed over every inch of what used to be known as land. People pass by a figure playing a washed over guitar, a relic of years gone by. Those fortunate enough to have retina filters installed don’t even see this holographic figure, he is wiped away by the FCC’s brainwave protectors. Those who can see this figure are glorified by the soundtrack he plays to the TV static.
What can be heard from the shadows is Underwater Escape From The Black Hole‘s “Precognition”, published on cassette by Hacktivism Records on April 29th, 2016.
Pre-orders are now available, as well as streaming of the track “Altered Landscape”: https://hacktivismrecords.bandcamp.com/album/precognition-2

As you hack your way out of the unoccupied corridors of the world’s largest security super-building in Osaka, Japan, a beautiful AI voice lets you know know that you have 30 minutes to vacate before she blows up the cybernetic implants in your brain and destroys the human race. Luckily this AI has great taste and will allow the last 30 minutes of your high tech life to be consumed by the first side of The Night Wars “Cardiac Cats” released on cassette via Hacktivism Records 68 years prior on March 11th 2016.
Hear the tape 68 years before the disaster occurs! Pre-Orders will start next week and the tape will be available digitally and start shipping on March 11th.
