Record Store Day is swiftly approaching us, and one of the more interesting releases on the docket is a collaborative album from Japanese noise artist Merzbow and LA's experimental Xiu Xiu. Fittingly enough, the record is called "Merzxiu," and it's two sprawling, epic tracks of noise, dissonance, drone, and more noise. This is what the world ends to. Listen to "Merzxiu B" below. The record will be out on Record Store Day, though Kingfisher Bluez has a limited number of copies available for pre-order for those with no record stores in their area.
