about

Absurd Exposition is proud to present the debut LP from Vancouver's RUSALKA.

Kate Rissiek has been a mainstay of the west coast Canadian harsh noise scene for over a decade now and "Base Waters" comes nearly seven years after Rusalka's initial involvement with Absurd Exposition ("Blood Comes Anyway", 2013). Within those years a line can be traced that has continued to tighten around a formidable body of work - from solo releases on stalwart labels such as New Forces, to splits with the likes of MK9 and THE RITA on Neural Operations, and a compilation appearance on heavy electronics powerhouse Tesco Organization. "Base Waters" showcases an artist dedicated to their craft and at the top of their game. However, if anything is evident during Rusalka's past eleven years, it is that "peak performance" negates the fact that there are still more peaks to climb (and make no doubt - they will be climbed). This is a much-deserved LP from one of the most consistent and ever-improving noise acts of our time.

Using a theremin as a centerpiece, Rusalka leads us straight into a harsh noise odyssey of oceanic depths - but something is lurking beneath the waves. It's dark. Fog horns sound. A lighthouse is pulsating. Underwater evasion. Capitulation. Receding tides. No respite. These waters run thick.
