The Grey Lynn Homeless Set
(Emerald Cocoon - EC006) 7-inch $8.00
New Zealand-born Tokyo-based physicist Mark Sadgrove uses site-specific recordings, lyrical domesticity, systematically illogical recording choices, completely brutalized fragments of bone-dry pointillist acoustic guitar strung only with low Es, invented instruments, real-time Linux C-sound programming, obsessively repeated lyrical fragments, an almost Buddhist sense of sound-as-object, and seemingly random electronic beats jumping across the stereo spectrum to deliver two sub-sub-sub lo-fi acoustic folk songs saturated in haze. Volume four in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.
