UNEARTHED from the Placenta Recordings archives: Dental Work - Feline AIDS Epidemic (Placenta Recordings #032 - 2008)!!! Official 2016 Re-Issue!

Dental Work - Feline AIDS Epidemic (Placenta Recordings #032 - 2008)

Reflections Of Evil is playing in the background, so it's kinda hard to write this description, but: 

This album was originally released as a mini 3" homemade CD-R with DIY printed/cut covers featuring crayon art by Sylvia S. in a hand numbered limited edition of 10 copies on Placenta Recordings. Recently uncovered from the Dental Work archives, it is a must that it made it to digital form. We even added in a few "bonus pics". Enjoy those. 

The music was performed, recorded, edited, composed, and written by Jay Watson in 2008 while living in a friend's basement right behind the local hospital in Frankfort, Michigan, and finished at the infamous "Birth Canal" studio between Elberta and Arcadia, Michigan The sound is an odd mutation of lo-fi live instrumentation, LSD and Speed influenced Breakcore/Ghettotech, Harsh Noise, and glitchy sample obsessed Sound Collage on this particular album themed towards cats. This was right before going on probation. Listening to mostly Grind and 90's Gangsta Rap, smoking a ton of weed and experimenting with sounds that no one was touching in the small "pinky" of Michigan.

Instrumentation: Yamaha Portasound Keyboard, Peavy 4-String Bass, Boss DD-3 Delay, Boss Metal-Zone Distortion, Glass Pipes, Marijuana, iOn Turntable, Harmonicas, Magix 8 

Guests who also performed on this release: Morgan Feger, 8-Bit Jellyfish, and Olivia S. 

This album is dedicated to: Rostov, Melvin, Weenis, GG, Chub, The Boys, Malcolm, Eddy, Felix, Onyx, and Minny.

Big Michigan Noise Compilation (Placenta Recordings #360 - 2016) out now!!!

Big Michigan Noise Compilation (Placenta Recordings #360 - 2016)

"Having grown up and lived in various cities and towns in the state of Michigan, I can honestly say it is one of the most fucked up states in the country...facing every issue imaginable, it reflects in the Noise music that comes from deep down in the pit of the souls of Michigan residents. This compilation shows appreciation for all of the oddball musicians and artists in Michigan who will never be booked back to the local watering hole ever again...This is for the outsiders who will never have their album available at FYE, and would never want it to be. This is for the girls/guys still running DIY spaces for us to play at, for the cats pressing 250 copies on vinyl for the sole fact they believe in the music, for the dudes dubbing tapes for the cassette label, the people cutting up tiny pieces of text and art making fliers and album covers...the people who make Noise possible in Michigan, defying odds and saying FUCK YOU to top 40 bullshit music and corporate influence on how you should live life...This music is not pretty, it's not for the faint of heart, and it's probably not for YOU." - Jay Watson (Placenta Recordings/Dental Work) 

Organized by Jay Watson and Sean Barry 2015-2016. Released by Placenta Recordings 2016. Special thanks to Lob (Thee Instagon Foundation) who asked PR to handle the Michigan chapter of this series inspired by Hal McGee's "Big Florida Noise Compilation".

This compilation was inspired by the BIG FLORIDA NOISE COMPILATION that was organized by Hal McGee. 
..this inspired an even larger undertaking.. to attempt to generate noise compilations from EVERY state.. and the ONE NATION UNDER NOISE project was born ( - Also check out Big California Noise Compilation: 

"Noise music is a type of music that employs noise as a musical resource. It is generally created with nontraditional musical instruments such as static, feedback, electronics, circuit bent instruments, or any other noise source." - Google 

"Noise music is a category of music that is characterized by the expressive use of noise within a musical context. This type of music tends to challenge the distinction that is made in conventional musical practices between musical and non-musical sound.[1] Noise music includes a wide range of musical styles and sound-based creative practices that feature noise as a primary aspect. It can feature acoustically or electronically generated noise, and both traditional and unconventional musical instruments. It may incorporate live machine sounds, non-musical vocal techniques, physically manipulated audio media, processed sound recordings, field recording, computer-generated noise, stochastic process, and other randomly produced electronic signals such as distortion, feedback, static, hiss and hum. There may also be emphasis on high volume levels and lengthy, continuous pieces." - Wikipedia 

"Luigi Russolo, a Futurist artist of the very early 20th century, was perhaps the first noise artist." - The Art Of Noises

Dental Work - Massive OVERDOSE - Newsletter - FALL 2015///


Dental Work - Massive OVERDOSE - Newsletter - FALL 2015///

"Dental Work is an avant-garde sound & performance art manipulation project based out of Traverse City, MI with roots in Detroit, Chicago,and Oakland, CA. The music is a rare blend of musique concrete, extreme psychedelia, experimental, harsh noise, tape manipulations, breakcore, found sounds, and outsider trash art. Dental Work can be described as a sado-masochistic delivery of maximum discomfort and anxiety, intertwined with spiritual de-pantsing, rigorous mental questioning, authentic Mexican restaurant addictions, duct tape & broken VHS mutilation, frantic blow-up doll destruction, unnecessary panic, heart attack speed turntable thrust, rusty knife wielding eccentric masturbation, LSD laced childhood flashbacks, supernatural OUIJA freak-outs, shamanistic Ketamine blackouts, NYC pizza rehabilitation, ritualistic bukkake ceremonies, OG owl shift hustling, and of course, each member has a majorly unhealthy obsession with Japan. The current line-up consists of Jay Watson, Sean Barry, and Justin Lee Smith."
