*Sigh…* You know, sometimes writing for Tiny Mix Tapes is hard. It more or less requires that you try and pin some tacky tags like “post-internet” or “nonbinary breakbeat hypo-information vaporcore” to music that is just downright impossible to define. Yeah, yeah I’m whining… But how would you describe the music of Chicago’s resident transcendent transfemme Angel Marcloid? Huh? If it’s so easy, why don’t you do it!?

That’s what I thought, wise guy person. Lucky for you, you don’t have to take my word for it. Hausu Mountain will be releasing a new full-length record from Marcloid’s Fire-Toolz project on August 24. It’s called Skinless X-1 and is sure to blast your skin clean off. Happy now? And since you just can’t wait to hear for yourself the indescribable sonics of this record, you can stream a gorgeous CGI video for “Ἠλύσιον πεδίον 「Elysian Fields」” below, animated by Dane Patterson and edited by Marcloid herself.

I don’t need to tell you what Hausu Mountain is (you’re reading Tiny Mix Tapes for chrissakes!) As for Marcloid, if you’re unfamiliar with her lineage of solo projects, pen names, and collaborations; or are ignorant of last year’s absolutely wicked Interbeing EP, well then that’s just too bad! Man, you really want me to describe this music huh? Well the press release claims her music is sculpted from signifiers of “genres including jazz fusion, electro-industrial, new age, black metal, vaporwave, and noise improv.” Satisfied????

Ughh, I need to go take a walk. Leave me alone, will you? Just run along and pre-order Skinless X-1 on LP, CD, digital, and t-shirt formats. Oh, sorry, wait, my editor says I still haven’t hit my damn word-count quota for this article: internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet.
