Artist: Anaphylaxis (@)
Title: Noise for Lovers
Format: CD
Label: Parasomnic (@)
Rated: *****
Anaphylaxis is the atmospheric noise/noisecore project of Jason Coffman (programming) and Teresa Santoski (vocals). Apparently this couple has had a slew of releases, though this is the first I’ve heard of them. I’ve got to say, though, they’ve definitely made an impression. From the moment this album started playing I loved it. Anaphylaxis' Noise for Lovers is exactly what it says it is... At least at first.

Distorted radio frequencies serve as the introduction to this gem of a release, contrasted by the nostalgic orchestration that perseveres for almost three minutes before being replaced by a seductively creepy, all-too short sample of a beautiful female voice. The entire album follows this suitor a suit like it. Nothing stays for long, the atmospheres, environments and beats flow in and out, corroding from one to another with ghostly voices and sounds manipulating and being equally manipulated. Everything about this release sounds like it is foreshadowing a terrible, ghastly event; beautiful in the most foreboding of ways.

I’m not sure what more I can say about AnaphylaxisNoise for Lovers. This release is absolutely worth the time, money, and effort of online purchasing. Noise for Lovers is beautiful, noisy, nostalgic, and altogether creepy. This album will not be easily forgotten.
