Innerspace Halflife – Astral Traveling LP [SYNAPSIS010]

The album Astral Traveling by Innerspace Halflife is among us with 9 tunes straight from the universal psyche, yet articulated with the tools of human perception through waveforms. Deeper and deeper the tunes take a listener on a journey of spacey pads, longing melodies, electronic bass notes, and jacking drum programming. In terms of human understanding, the universe is infinite which makes any scenario one can think of possible. With this in mind, Astral Traveling was composed and explores the deepness of creativity as Innerspace Halflife reaches down to pull out sounds using various techniques.

Elect Pt.1 – Bod-x [SIG.MMXIV.XI]

A relentless 12inch combining the teuton talents of Elect Pt.1 aka Andreas Gehm and Baden-Wurttemberg’s finest Mick Wills. No need for superlatives, three straight up acid tracks that hit you like a 200kph night drive up the Bundesautobahn – ohne Scheinwerfer.

Alex Israel – Moving To The Suburbs [STILOVE4MUSIC040]

Alex Israel is back this time with an EP for the Jerome Derradji’s worldwide infamous label Stillove4music. “Moving To The Suburbs” is an acid ode to the devastatingly uncreative normcore of American suburbia via the State of Michigan – where Alex Israel hails from. “Ocelot” goes straight back for your roots and ours:  In Acid we trust. “Wafer Thin Sparrow” is a stunning sci fi beatless instrumental geared towards your future space and time deviations.

D. Wilson & L. Carson – Tracks From Tapes [SS042]

Sound Signature completists will be rubbing their hands with a sense of relish at the label’s 42nd release as it sees more material drawn from the late 80s archives of Leron Carson. Back in 2001, Theo Parrish introduced Leron Carson’s work with “China Trax” which sounded like the uncovered cassette recordings of a deviant Robert Hood. Carson’s busted lo fi productions from the same era were later given a more extensive airing on the double plated Sound Signature issue Red Lightbulb Theory ’87-’88 and this third appearance on the label draws from some recordings made in collaboration with the unheralded D Wilson. All Sound Signature will offer by way of description is “This was Southside Chitown ’89. If you weren’t there you weren’t there…. lots of underground unreleased music circulated on the Southside on maxell and tonemaster tapes from Walgreens – 2 dollars for a pack of eight” For our money both “Siren” and “Other Science” can be compared to the twisted, grainy freeform acid Jamal Moss makes.
