A pair of new 7″ releases from Astral Social Club & Evan Caminiti are available for preorder now from Trensmat Records.
ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB – SNAEFELL (TR021) Its been three years since Astral Social Club’s last release for Trensmat but on this 7″ Neil Campbell continues onwards and upwards from the vapour trail of Skelp/Ginnel.
‘Snaefell’ on the A is a flurry of swirls and glitches, swoops and shimmers, locked into a relentless electro psych drone loop. Its a fractured alien techno which gradually gets clouded in a dense, divine and otherworldy drift. Flip over for ‘Mocne’ – more alien dancefloor beatmaking where the groove gallops through a glimmering field of chopped synth stutter, warped electronic glitchery and sparkling streaks of stuccatoed shimmer.
Buyers of the 7″ will be able to uniquely access an additional download which features digital copies of Snaefell & Mocne as well as three additional tracks – Snizort, Moff & Snaefug – that continue to mine the expanses of processed glitchery and shimmery starburst. A full 26+ minutes of ASC for the price of a 7″!
VERY limited edition 7″ in full colour wraparound picture sleeve (+ 5 downloads).
EVAN CAMINITI – DISTANT LIGHTS (TR022) Evan Caminiti is best known as one half of psychedelic drone-doom-duo Barn Owl but he also forges a path as a solo artist devising mystical & towering guitar pieces.
‘Static Waves’ moves from airy echoes into thick blurry buzz smeared into drifting clouds of fuzz-damaged smouldering shimmer and back to drift through soft clouds of ghostly hum and whirl. ‘Last Transmission’ on the B features slow tones throbing and pulsing into arcing streaks of feedback which slowly unfurl into gauzy shimmer, layered and textured and expansive. A minimal and intimate but so sweeping and epic record.
Buyers of the 7″ will be able to uniquely access an additional download which features digital copies of Static Waves & Last Transmission as well as a totally exclusive video for Trensmat of Evan playing an amazing improvised acoustic jam in his kitchen!
VERY limited edition hand-numbered 7″ in full colour wraparound picture sleeve (+ 3 downloads).
