Compound Eye

(Spring Press - SP16) 10-inch (lathe cut) $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two extended tracks where drifting pulses of modular synth, echoes of home-made electronics, and a ukelin played with the utmost restraint summon the ever-elusive energy of ’60s downtown experimentalism. “The first side,” says Volcanic Tongue, feels like “an occult working, with ectoplasmic forms channelled via acoustic and electronic receivers, jump-cutting between realities with soft synthesized thuds. The flip … is just as spectral, with deep Morse Code melodies bisected by butterflies of bright white light.” Edition of 70


Origin Of Silence

(Spring Press - SP12) LP $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

This long-standing collaboration between Drew McDowall (ex-Coil and Psychic TV) and Tres Warren (Psychic Ills and Messages) employs automatic composition, drone and concrète music in the creation of subterranean explorations on the nature of signals and time.

The duo’s “exacting minimalist logic … locate[s] distant Morse Code tones and blurry EVP sightings on the very fringes of liminality,” observe our comrades at Volcanic Tongue. “[V]ague, nagging melodies … come out of the Goblin / Suspiria song book alongside long passages of single tone narcosis.” Clear vinyl, printed polyvinyl bag. Edition of 200.
