Astral Social Club / Glockenspiel
(Krayon Recordings - KR014) split 7-inch $8.25
Machines groan and distant melodies ascend on the face-chewer by Neil Campbell on one side, while Glockenspiel’s vinyl debut on the flip weaves wooly tones with the harmonics of rubbed toms and bowed metal. A snow-blind haze of feedback, amplified string scrape and analogue electronics.
(Krayon Recordings - KR004) CD $7.50
Using tapes, electronics and guitars through chains of effects, Adrian Dollemore's fundamentally Earth-ground chords and astrally-projective processing paint a rural tonality with a bristling white afterglow. Glistening arpeggios rise and fall against gurgling analogue electronics, washes of processed cymbal and ethereal drone filigree.
