Ori Ofir, aka Lower Tar, makes a return to his own Night Gaunt Recordings with the label's first vinyl release. The Los Angeles native is coming off of his s/t cassette release on Ascetic House as well as an LP for his other project Sterile Hand, a collaboration with Silent Servant, that both came out in 2018. Stung is a presentation of 5 hard hitting EBM-infused techno tracks that are constantly churning and refuse to sit still. Exploring the function of time in relation to trauma, these recordings take from Lower Tar's own experience of near death bodily trauma and translates it into dance music. From the catharsis of being able to witness a sunrise in the electro-tinged title track "Stung", to the urgency for movement in "Prime Dislocation", Stung finds Ofir embracing his victory over the nothingness.
