TL 1005 | Karl Mohr Audio-Yo | Galaxy Overmind

Available for purchase at Bandcamp.

A major milestone release for Karl Mohr Audio-Yo, the fifth album Galaxy Overmind (1993-1995) sets an extraterrestrial techno-industrial world alight with grinding songs of dystopian iconoclasm and anguished precognitive future shock. Featuring the Canadian campus hits “Highway” and “Famously Famished”, this sequencer-directed energy blast – newly-remastered – will appeal to fans of Alien Sex Fiend, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Billy Idol, Nitzer Ebb, Ministry and Nine Inch Nails.

TL 1002 | Karl Mohr Audio-Yo | Psychocinematic

Available for purchase at Bandcamp.

Bristling with industrial dance vitriol, paired with estranged romantic introversion, the second collection of Karl Mohr Audio-Yo, Psychocinematic, focuses on an edgy period (1990-1992) rich in dire poetry and heavy-handed drum programming. A well-balanced presentation of Mohr’s varying musical spaces, this short and jagged album will appeal to fans of electro-industrial, new wave, gothic, minimal synth and dark ambient.
