This is the fourth overall album by Man & Hammer that I have heard – but I am not sure how many total there are. Man & Hammer is the one man project of David Joo (who also went by Squid). This tape continues in the same vein of noise/industrial music. As you can tell by the cover, there is a bit more of a hip-hop sound here – some of the noise is scratching and other hip-hop related found noises. There seems to be a bit more of an electronica beat here and there as well. And, of course, a lot of samples and “found noises” as I call them (recordings of every day sounds and noises). Mis-spellings in the song titles above represent what is printed on the cover.
