If you're familiar with the Hymen or Tympanik labels, it's possible that you've heard "All My Best Intentions" by Millipede, "Surge" by Aphorism, or the 2009 Hymen compilation Miwak 12. Miwak 12 featured "Concevoir (gaztheque remix)", a Millipede track re-envisioned by Aphorism. But this wasn't the first time the two Chicago-based artists worked together.

Scrap-grinder is a collaboration between the Chicago-based musicians Don Hill and Josh Pyle that emerged in 2005 after many years of friendship and talk of musical collaboration.

Bearing a distinct influence of Swedish noise legends like Sanctum and Mental Destruction, Scrap-grinder's first collaboration fused post industrial percussion with generative beats, glitches, and abrasive, moody technoid atmospheres.

Now, released in 2012 exclusively for CRL Studios, Scrap-grinder presents an EP titled "Granum" with three powerful tracks that push envelope of rhythmic electronic noise and leave the listener wanting for much more.

Those familiar with the artists may be able to pick up on the mixture of Aphorism's digital complexities with Millipede's deep percussive sensibilities, resulting in an aggressive burst of high-tech and low tech distorted rhythms, drones, and melodies. Scrap-grinder is truly a unique listening experience, not to be missed.
