Includes a PDF file for EXPECT RESISTANCE, a field manual for a field on which all manuals are useless, a meditation on individual transformation and collective resistance in disastrous times, and a masterpiece that raises the bar for radical publishing.
Instead of celebrating corroded, neon-pastel magnetic-tape detritus for its own sake, the music on the Eternal Willow series leans closer to an appreciation of the actual rhythmic counterpoints, quirks, and resonant qualities of frequencies. Alongside the moments that seem to revel in the flutter and crackle of old equipment are stretches that draw similar vibes from the sound of water to field recordings not to mention the texture you can get from good old-fashioned feedback. Yet even the moments where some songs feel secondary to the other instrumentation have a pulse to them, run through floaty guitars or humming synthesizers that converse with the ambient hiss in compelling ways. Still, neither the melody nor the ambience overwhelms the other. It's easy to hear the silky, billowy tones through the dying-battery distortion, but hard to picture what they'd sound like without it. Unlikely sounds are reappropriated and noise are looped until they’re essentially another instrument.

Nine is the highest single-digit number in the decimal system. It is the second non-unitary square prime of the form and the first that is odd. All subsequent squares of this form are odd. It has a unique aliquot sum 4 which is itself a square prime. Nine is; and can be, the only square prime with an aliquot sum of the same form. The aliquot sequence of nine has 5 members (9,4,3,1,0) this number being the second composite member of the 3-aliquot tree. It is the aliquot sum of only one number the discrete semiprime 15.
