Bundle: Alan Courtis "Los Galpones" + David First "Solomonos for Analog Synthesizer"
Our latest releases in one package.
ALAN COURTIS Los Galpones LP:
Edition of 300 w/download code.
"Los Galpones (The Sheds) presents four sides of hermetic, claustrophobic tones coaxed from electric guitar, violin, springs and found objects. The results are glacial, deep, sonorous drones set against textures of scraped metal. “Aparcero” is a languid, patient piece that builds slowly, eventually overlaid with clipped, reversed sounds that feel like electric zippers. “Estiba” finds the rhythmic clang of deep gong-like tones emerging from a distance. Both sides frame a longer track against a piece about half the length of its predecessor, ensuring that the
formal and textural qualities are in concert." - The Wire
DAVID FIRST Same Animal Different Cages Vol.2: Solomonos for Analog Synthesizer LP:
Edition of 100 on transparent gold vinyl w/download code.
"Put simply, this is destructive synthesis on a grandiose scale; ever ground your teeth hard enough for your jaw to ache the next day? When this appeared I figured it would be an easier task to summarize what he’d done as synthesizers are more familiar instruments to me but I had no idea they could be made to do what he’s accomplished. "—Santa Sangre
