Lens Records is a Chicago based record label created to help support and distribute the works of artists who prefer to work with a smaller, artist driven label. The label has released a variety of work in different genres including ambient, experimental, dark ambient, electronic, rock, modern classical, electroacoustic and field recordings...
The Sounds of Megaphone Unlimited is actually a compilation of Jason Willet’s output over the last ten years from Megaphone Records, his label – which as being released on another label may have you yet again scratching your heads. Most of the tracks are avant-punk no-named (or simply named for their content) songs from the mid-nineties with a few smatterings of post-millennial noise-spasmodic dirges from eccentric Baltimore musicians.
Willett emerges shadow-marionette, twitching limbs of angular strings clashing to pummelled percussion, filtered behind a mottled screen of punk-splashed colours in the first track, a carnival of squelching distorted punk and casio tone that few bands retain in the new millennium. From there other grotesque appendants are mashed one after the other: flailing contretemps of musical formulae, experimental punk wailing against syncopated clusters of noise.
Song form is as loose as each track name and while the compilation offers a variety of bands Willett has participated in there is a cohesiveness of disintegrating song form of the type that bands like Aids Wolf, We Are Wolves, The Weegs, et al still formulate in new ways today, with typical guitar, bass, drums and the atypical bass and electronics. Parodies of punk that splutter and cavort, scream and awkwardly lurch, rugose and decayed. Noise punk that few may appreciate, the unconventional definitely will send the emo/scremo/lamo crew ducking for cover in their Malls.
