If the nomadic war-machine operates through creativity and unboundedness, the state-form works through parasitism and binding. The purpose of the state-form is to bind all nomadism to certain structures, to make sure that its creativity does not overflow certain boundaries or certain identificatory categories.Todd May, The Political Philosophy of Poststructuralist Anarchism p. 105 (via post-makhno)

Our third tape this month comes from Austin based Macho Blush, a self taught multi-instrumentalist raised around music and inculcated with the natural sense of experimentation that comes from such elaborate solo-orchestration… as well as the peculiar influence of emergent no-wave sensibilities in psychedelia. Across a growing discography, self-released and occasionally in association with Austin noise outlets, she fuses diverse elements into rugged timbres… sometimes through strident passages but more often in an evolving, fitful hypnagogia, reflected in the shifting attitude and orientation of vocals and instrumentation alike. Despite the distinctive clangtint of her music, the ‘noise’ is incidental to exploring the dense creative space between wakened awareness and the symbolism of dreams, transmitted by oblique lyrics and miscellaneous thematic markers across both audio and text… though Macho Blush can resemble the acousmatic thanks to an impressionistic approach to sound production, these songs are nonetheless expressive, and particularly of their origins in the primordial act of creation.
Though copies of Unsick are available to purchase via our Bandcamp now, they won’t be shipping until next week due to a minor production delay.

In desiring-machines, everything functions at the same time, but amid hiatuses and ruptures, breakdowns and failures, stalling and short circuits, distances and fragmentations, within a sum that never succeeds in bringing its various parts together so as to form a whole. That is because the breaks in the process are productive, and are reassemblies in and of themselves. Disjunctions, by the very fact that they are disjunctions, are inclusive. Even consumptions are transitions, processes of becoming, and returns. […] It is only the category of multiplicity, used as a substantive and going beyond both the One and the many […] that can account for desiring-production: desiring-production is pure multiplicity, that is to say, an affirmation that is irreducible to any sort of unity.Deleuze and Guattari, Anti-Oedipus, “1. The Desiring-Machines”, 42 (via feelingpolitical)
