dinasty at ghost town

"this 11 artist tape batch has more than one red thread running through it ~ the magnificent art by Simon Fowler (who crafted the cover Sanguine Futures by High aura’d, among many others) is echoed by the sense of awakening and mantra throughout the varied styles of the works. all tapes are pro-dubbed on Type II Chrome tape, imprinted on both sides, and inserted with high quality 4-panel J-Cards." bathetic records

panabrite ~ tracer ep (bathetic, 2014)

"kinetic modular pop"  

"Tracer EP pulls together brief exercises in percussive modular synthesizer experiments and minimal keyboard workouts, a sort of hazy approximation of discarded documentary score and blown-out basement synth framed in a peculiar narrative sensibility."

listen ~ buy 

“electroacoustic, liberated from expected choice, emboldened by whim-salmgundi

 “preordained ruination, doldrums amplified & improvised, hung with care”

“sun tea, bleached Hired Hand, windup music box”

John Muir presents blackened ambient

m geddes gengras ~ 8.2.13 (bathetic, 2014)

 “convergent tectonics, building toward volcanic winter”

listen ~ buy 

lee noble ~ forming (bathetic, 2014)

“a yearning, plead with an earnest seduction” 

“an ascendance to true contemplation, the porch parishioners”

“will o’ the wisp, barreleye gazing upward toward the sea surface”

zac nelson ~ vulgar divination (bathetic, 2014)

 “a secular invocation, a reflected invitation to delight”

 listen ~ buy 

“a lonely collage meat for late night crawling. lauding darkness, but hopeful for brighter days.”

la máxima alegría sería tener todas estas cintas juntas, de golpe, colocadas pegaditas en la estantería. sólo he podido escuchar entera la de Panabrite ('pop modular cinético' tocado sobre collages sonoros saltarines, efervescentes, movedizos, library, la más querida y la que me hace especial ilusión) pero los samples de High Aura'd, Padang Food Tigers, Scott Tuma y Aquarelle son una preciosidad. aunque todos lo son, de la pe a la pa, sin excepción, porque el espíritu de Bruce Langhorne revolotea sobre casi todos ellos. coherencia, belleza, buen gusto... y Scott Tuma, que por mucho que lo recomiende nunca sería suficiente. de cuando las portadas, todas ilustradas por Simon Fowler, acompañan a la música.
