downright blown away by this one ladies and gentlemen- the perfect workout in sonic composition and experiment- clocking in at an hour, we get to experience jon's incredible ability to be all over the free map- you want scouring in-your-face sax (as jon often delivers in the well respected wasteland jazz unit)? you got it. you want amazing texture through restraint? you got it. you want mesmerizingly focused percussion patterns (how does he do this?)? you got it. totally psyched to release this monster-
when i got the masters for this tape it immediately became the late night summer night sound trk here- matt and hillary (also runners of the amazing existential cloth label) dial in here with 3 mind melting pieces that are the perfect medicine for an introspective experience as well as trascending, spiritual, meditative, and beautifully dark in parts- i dare you to put this in your walkman and take a midnight walk in the woods, or the desert, or anywhere for that matter- truly psyched to release this- highly addictive
What a treat to say the least! So honored to release this amazing collection of sounds from ray hare, 1/2 of century plants, player in the amazing psych unit burnt hills, among several other projects, ffrthesun is ray's personal vehicle of exploration-his history in sound goes way back and this tape is a dynamic representation of ray's ability to exercise his talents- whether it be his guitar work, amazing electronics, vocals, etc., it's all on display here- 9trks over 62 min- this is a must have!
oh yeah baby! what do you get if dude is sitting around spinning bowie records and decides to hit the basement? well if your brandon greter, you end up with some whacked out weird as shit material for GNS tape- mastermind behind the dream root label and productive as hell, he brings us 6 trks over a 30 min. journey- a narrative that will never get old- super diverse- and solid as a rock- don't sleep on this one-
the sounds and textures that come through on this tape are almost beyond identifiable- i'll leave that to whoever dares- mike barrett the magician behind the belltone curtain offers up 2 incredibly strong sides- mike is well known for his massive ability to construct sound through whatever secret weapon gadgets he's concocted and holy shit is it mind blowing- it's like "how the fuck is he doing this" and then "who cares, play it again." pure magic-- summer burn one will hit the deck all year round
new sounds from port d'or honcho and the kingpin of killer label idiot underground, dylan hay lays down two side long tracks- if you've seen him play live then you already have an idea of thick frequencies moving through the man himself with both free spirit and concentration- from low end grit to airborne oscillations, this tape contains what i feel some of his best work yet-super good! keep an eye out for isa christ/cruudeuces split 7" mid to late august-
