Herukrat recently released “Anna Karina”, self-described as “ an exploration of an archetype of womanhood, themed around Anna Karina’s roles in Godard’s films from ‘60 - '67." I’m not sure how many womanly archetypes show through the music, but the noise is brutal, consisting of an immense, unrelenting wall, pierced only by vicious stabs of screaming feedback. It’s a bold statement, and an absorbing, cathartic listen. The piece consists of two sides, Side A (above) and Side B, both of which form a cohesive, brain-scraping whole. 

"Anna Karina” is available on cassette via underground label SVN OKKLT, or as a free download from Herukrat’s bandcamp page.


Herukrat - Zikr of As-Salaam


After 6 or so months I think I put the finishing touches on the next Herukrat full-length album tonight.  This is about 10x work I’ve put into any previous releases and I’m really excited about it.  It’s a pretty big departure from anything else I’ve done under this project and it is definitely more sophisticated and thought-out than any of the previous tapes.  Total Black is going to be releasing it for me, and insha'Allah it’ll be out by the end of the year.
