HoneyCult review by Zzaj

"Kuwahara - HONEYCULT: Some splendid indie music in from one of the "founders" of the home-taping underground, Mike Honeycutt. If you've never heard bees swarming, you may not relate well to this sonic assault... with headphones on, you'll believe you've been caught on the inside of the hive, & that you'll never be able to get back to "normal" (whatever that is, heh! heh!). This is synth-driven, and it's one of the most excellent excursions I've been on lately - while there are a few invasive moments, this is unusually harmonic and totally perceptive of what will drive you up the proverbial wall, but let you down gently enough to escape without commitment to the "D" ward. There wasn't a lot of information available on the web, though you can find the tracklist here... Mike is joined by M. Peck, and they've created a wealth of sonic adventures that any active listener will find irresistible... some of this stuff takes you right out to the very EDGE of the universe, and doesn't necessarily bring you back (or at least not in one piece). One of the most intriguing compositions was "Whose Children Are We?", with blunt-trauma sonic hammers ready to blow you ALL THE WAY AWAY... the other piece I just loved (my favorite track, without doubt) was the swirling opener, "A Basket For Elliot"... just beautiful! I'm impressed, and you will be, too... I give this aural adventure a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.98."

Video Afterthought

How To Wake A Sleeping Shaman

Sleeping Shaman webzine recently gave HoneyCult a fabulous review:
"The sound-world of Kuwahara, a duo consisting of M.Peck and Mike Honeycutt, is one of grainy kaleidoscopic twilight murk shot through with fractured transmissions from some alien transmitter device. Dull bathyscaphic pulses shudder across arcing, shimmering feedback that subsides into eerie field recordings from some location that may or may not exist. Kuwahara have soundtracked the fall down the rabbit-hole, and it is terrifying."

Cultivation Series Vol. 1

We are currently underway working towards the release of the first installment of the Cultivation Series. Featured contributors are Steve Brand, Andrew Lagowski, WILT (James Keeler) and Mannequin Hollowcaust. This release will also feature one or two previously unreleased tracks from Kuwahara.
We've decided to scrap the 3" format as it may not be suitable for all machines and limited packaging options. We are still looking towards mid to late July for this release. More to come. In the meantime please join the mailing list for further announcements. Thanks.
