They Sent Me Into Space Today b/w Cicadas Birds + Gtr

(Greatdividing - DD011) split 7-inch $10.00

Arob and Soottyb’s collaboration “They Sent Me Into Space Today” mixes and dweedles electronics “until they slip over your head like a soft mosquito blanket,” according to Byron Coley, who also pegs the instrumentation (drums and “flapper”) as the tools for accessing a “wormhole into some strange rock universe.” Arob’s “Cicadas Birds + Gtr,” as the title suggests, combines field recordings from the countryside with a home recording made in a bedroom in the city. Plays well on either 45 or 33 rpm, which is rarely a bad sign.
