Grave Babies drummer Keith Whiteman and Kyle Hurt’s recording project, White Dread, has a new release for your scrutiny titled Music for History Part 1. Radio reports and political speeches from World War II (that momentous event that flickered in black and white on your teevee and spawned several excellent films and novels) importantly patter over ambient soundbeds that combine soothing tones, eerie atmospheres, and subtly deranged FX for a chilling learning experience. I wouldn't mind getting a vinyl version that excised all the historical chatter, but I'm selfish that way.
