early risers

a whimsical trip through wondrous natural environs. breathtaking scenery accompanies firefly campfire ritual incantations as crickets chirp and hazy licks drift in and out of focus. lost radio transmissions play gossamer waltzes. when we fell asleep with the television on, years passed us and even the canyons eroded into nothing.

von himmel
rock n roll animal/traum esel

descending hieroglyphics implicated by percussion fluctuations and multiphonic undergrowths of upended guitar hero sound diagrams in a prism of vacuous moon secretions; horizons unfold with tingling sparkles on a phosphorescent mossy riverbed in unseen hinterland tombs as our bodies melt with coursing streaks of sublimity in finite journeys vis-a-vis primordial birthdeath interplay. drawings by bart de paepe of sloow tapes.

moon timbres encompassing ancient marrow knowledge and ritual awakenings give way to bongo fury freak-outs and stately sequencer appendages subsumed by organ/guitar effluvium approaching escape velocity.

birds you once knew
synth miniatures

tape hiss braindance tribute to roland and sequential circuits gear nostalgia. bedroom actualization of interlocking transistor rhythms, stabbing basslines and floating mod wheel warble.

esther chlorine

a. world of prophecy - satanism, ritual sacrifices of the n.w.o.
b. mold breath

entropic post-coital papacy ritual, dank pond moss reflections and shrunken head chatter tenderly eviscerate a hallowed ground of cracked earthen thrones. inner miasma of dung beetle lifecycles and botched paganism filtered through a crumbling lattice of luminescent foliage

muntjac + furly crow

a smeargulated collection acoustic improvs, coast to coast woodland diddling, field recordings, and minimalist experimentation. vibes go from mellow porch jams, to nocturnal and creepy, to just plain weird. birds are burbling, banjos are bonging, beasts are bumbling breathily.

birds you once knew

bizarre tape collage compost dump. mason jar lids are popping in the dream tunnel. warm goo penetrates the twilight. suddenly pebbles house bean in your moat for a long time. the bubble machine dissassociates in a vacuum. a golem belches. a lazy torrent of trance inducing abstraction.
