Burial Practices

Burial Practices is the first release from Bootlicker.

30 minutes of buzzing, droning oscillators; choking; bass pressure; juddering feedback; metal percussion; unidentified mechanical static; Hamburgerisms; digital ebb and flow.

We’re all trapped in the abyss - capitalism has made the world an ossuary. The landscape is haunted by ancestral modes of living that have lost meaning in the post-penicillin world.

Bootlicker is George Rayner-Law (AKA Schwerpunkt) & Dominic O'Donoghue. Both were members of Elk Blood and occasionally play together as part of Werk.

Recorded and assembled SE15/NW10/SE1, Jan-2017 — Jul-2018.

From our digital distributor:

"Unfortunately, the audio quality for this release is not to a high enough standard. This is due to the various moments of clipping and distortion throughout your release Audio recordings must be mixed, mastered and recorded to a professional level."

Also from our digital distributor:

"I apologise that this release was initially disapproved, your release is fine as it is intentional noise music."
