Speak Onion teams up with redHat for THIRD RAIL / TERRITORIAL DISPUTE!

22 10 2014

redHat and Speak Onion are two of the U.S. east coast’s pillars of hard electronic music, and they’ve teamed up here to create two pieces of breakcore-based industrial mania. “Third Rail” contains trace elements of both redHat and Speak Onion’s respective styles, but finds a previously uncharted place where mutated bass is the basis of all existence and breakbeats are unmercifully chopped, crushed, and reconstituted. With “Territorial Dispute” the pair push further out into dark space, grappling with divergent anomalies until a polystylistic embryo splits and spatters its juice over the void.

Xrin Arms / Mercy Choir split “NEW ANIMAL” out now!

17 10 2013

We’ve captured two Immigrant Breast Nest veterans at the top of their game on “New Animal.” Masters of mutant songcraft, Mercy Choir and Xrin Arms showcase their talents on this split E.P. Neither collaboration nor experimental fusion, “New Animal” is an all out sound-clash; the listener wins.

“HWY” by Xrin Arms, a new beat collection for road hypnosis

18 12 2012



Immigrant Breast Nest is proud to release the latest beat collection from Xrin Arms. The aptly titled “HWY” evokes a hip-hop inflected road trip through the American Southwest, a Spaghetti Western where the spaghetti has been laced with cough syrup. This is music that puts you in a trance and wakes you up in a different time zone; another successful fusion from Xrin Arms, a true master of left field sonics.

Thermometerometer returns! “Traumameter” available for download now!

25 09 2012

Thermometerometer - Traumameter

Thermometerometer – Traumameter

Thermometerometer returns with “Traumameter,” a thorough exploration of the borderland between electronic wreckage and bass.  The duo of David B. Applegate and Speak Onion’s Dan Abatemarco started Thermometerometer to measure the measurers and succeeded in obliterating all yard-sticks.  Now, they’re left with no other option but to measure the damage.  These tracks are guaranteed to blow up your cabbage and cut your meat into ribbons.  We’ll send an ambulance.


David B. Applegate enters the B’ak’tun fray with August’s track

21 08 2012

Hot on the heels of his June release A bit obliterated comes this new banger from David B. Applegate. Thirst for annihilation weds an insistent beat to an army of disembodied sounds bent on ushering in the end times. If you even try to sleep on this, it’ll start in again with the voices and keep you up all night, get it!
