Aprotag- PracticesDeep, Ambient/Drone musings by Athens, GA's Jj Posway. Subtle, yet provocative, these tunes explore the terrain of the psychological landscapes that arise from isolation and intense, immediate focus. Side A incorporates aspects of harsh noise with underlying beds of ambient melodies. On Side B the ambience takes the reigns but other, more abrasive sounds weave their way through the bliss and allow for each song to maintain some feelings of tension.
Haunting and creaky, these two pieces of music created by Asheville's Josh Clark and Devin LeCroy conjure up images of abandoned tumble-down shacks decaying on the side of old rural highways and the heightened perception and insecurity one experiences when exploring one of these buildings at night. This music expresses the harsh reality of these forgotten structures while creating fleeting moments of wonder at what caused its existence in the first place.
DJ Mickey- Spaghetti House
First physical release from the musical enigma that brought you the digital only release entitled "...For the Children" last year. This new release takes the spontaneity and focus on odd sounds found on the first DJ Mickey transmission and somehow refines the sound. The recording is also better quality. After attempting to get a sample from DJ Mickey for some time I came home with a CD-r that simply said "For All Mankind" which contained this Dub Mix of material from the tape on my doorstep.
A.X.- Desolation (Inner Space)
One of two upcoming releases from A.X., the moniker for the experimental music and art of Ben Asbury, the man behind Axxa/Abraxas. This release explores the theme of the isolation of Space juxtaposed with the technology of the Spacecraft. Composed primarily on a Sequential Circuits Six Trak and recorded to tape between April 2012 and March 2013. A second A.X. tape entitled Night/Day is also in the works and should be out soon via Cds tapes?
All four of these tapes will be out and available for purchase on (or before) April 30th Keep yr eyes Peeled Friends!
