CUTICLE – ‘MOTHER RHYTHM EARTH MEMORY’ LP
Brendan OKeefes cyber-electronics alias vaults up with a
stunning and stunningly strange collection of slippery circuitry
grooves and vocoder dub excursions that’s as enjoyable as it is
eminently unlike nearly any other record we’ve heard. This one came
out in Europe a week or so ago so we already are slightly low-ish on
stock, don’t wait. Also, he’ll be at SXSW this year for those of
you who care about such things.
CRUISE FAMILY – ‘WE’RE IN HEAVEN’ 12″
Vienna’s foremost rave abstractionist finally arrives on vinyl, and
it’s a fitting suite of tracks for such treatment. Three forays into
cosmic synth music as translated through the idiom of Eastern European
DIY warehouse acid trance. Fans of Stellar OM Source, Jonas Reinhardt,
100% SILK, and beyond will find much to revel in here.
