(Goldsoundz / Absurd)

As lo-fi as you can get, this is a guitar/fuzz/tape project by Phil Todd which could be defined as a strange cross between pre-acousmatic-era Main and the rethinking of instrumental parts by Pink Floyd (circa “Interstellar Overdrive”). Though distortion is more or less constant, the sound tends to be slippery and with a proclivity to detached leisure; this feeling is just shortly interrupted by a few interferences that don’t change the pillhead sensation permeating the whole release, which ends with a treated field recording coupled with a totally glazed-eye, out of tune arpeggio. If not revolutionary by any measure, this stuff keeps you snug during your slo-mo life segments.
