Though his solo work, and in his collaboration with Giuseppe Tilleci as Voices from the Lake, Dozzy has achieved some of the most remarkable vistas contemporary electronic music has seen in the last decade. By removing himself from his areas of mastery to shift his focus on the voice, he has achieved a new peak. "Sintetizzatrice" is the first work on Spectrum Spools featuring Anna Caragnano, a vocalist based in Rome. Over two stunning sides of vinyl, Dozzy works exclusively with the voice of Caragnano, with no other instruments. Heavy layering and effects processe...

David Borden - Music For Amplified Keyboard Instruments

David Borden - Music For Amplified Keybo...

David Borden was is in the room where the pitch wheel was invented, when it happened. He was one of the first people to beta-test Bob Moog's Modular Synthesizer systems and MiniMoog instruments. His Earthquack Records imprint inspired Mimi Johnson to begin the legendary Lovely Records label with Robert Ashley. Borden formed the first all synthesizer ensemble, Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company, in 1969 after Bob Moog graciously lent out his prototype synthesizers and allowed them to be blown up and repaired repeatedly in the process of learning patching techniques. If there was ever a missing link in American Minimalism, David Borden is that link. He not only composed, innovated and performed in the peak years of this imperative movement, but did so on his own terms, with a startling lack of recognition for his revelatory contributions to contemporary musical history. David Borden, born Christmas Day 1938, in Boston, Massachusetts, is an American Minimalist composer and el...

Worldbuilding (6:56) How can we imagine the future of the world, away from the standards of time that we have insisted upon giving it? How to conceive of the movements of a world in its arcs and sweeps of continents and oceans across ages without reducing it to cheap historical humanisations? Does a past, present or future even matter to the yet-to-exist events of ungraspable and fundamental ecological time? Pangaea Ultima, Steve Moore’s debut record on Spectrum Spools, is an epic musical achievement, not simply for its sonic sophistication and compositional mastery, but also because Moore has crafted here an album that has gone as close to any in transcending the boxed human lo...

Gary War - Jared's Lot

1. Thousand Yard Stare (3:58)2. Advancements In Disgust (2:41)3. Superlifer (3:40)4. Find Our Way (3:22)5. Pleading For Annihilation (4:33)6. Care Less (2:57)7. World After (3:24)8. Muscle Dysmorphia (3:09) It's been nearly two years since we've heard new music from Gary War and we are excited to announce the release of his inevitable breakthrough "Jared's Lot". Through the years we have heard the developments from the D.I.Y. psychedelia of "New Raytheonport" to the more current electronic acid-prog tracks we heard from "Horribles Parade" and the most recent "Police Water" EP. "Jared's Lot" brings the years of laboring and hard work full circle, with every facet of the project dialed into perfection. These tight and intelligently arranged pieces are the most concise and mind-blowing set of songs presented yet and we're sure you'll have a hard time taking this off your turntable. The album kicks off with the incredibly anthemic "Thousand Yard Stare", which asserts immediately that th...

Motion Sickness Of Time Travel - s/t [2CD]

Motion Sickness Of Time Travel - s/t [2C...

In 2010 Rachel Evans released "Seeping Through the Veil of the Unconscious", an expansive, magic trick of a cassette which captivated an unsuspecting American cassette underground and made dedicated fans instantly. Digitalis released fine editions of the "Seeping..." as well as the acclaimed follow-up "Luminaries and Synastries" on LP which packed an equally potent punch. Since then much anticipation has been created from her work with husband Grant Evans, including a split LP on Aguirre Records in late 2011 and various releases as duo Quiet Evenings Evans has since been hard at work on an expansive, definitive 2xLP project, carefully arranging sounds to create immense, alchemical side-long tracks which push the boundries of the project into new territory. These incredible new highs are documented in a clear, spacious fidelity where cerebral sounds gently flow and wash through the stereo field creating a beautiful deep listening situation. Big changes in sound and scope are evident; a...

Robert Turman - Flux

Robert Turman - Flux

"Flux" is the 1981 debut solo outing of Robert Turman, an American multi-instrumentalist and avant-garde composer. Until recently, Turman was perhaps best known for his contributions to the ballistic NON project with Boyd Rice, as well as other obscured U.S. industrial acts such as Z.O. Voider.  In the summer of 1981 Turman decided he would take a drastic turn from the noisy/electronic/industrial work of his compatriots, and began work on what is now the classic "Flux" cassette. "Flux" was originally self-released in extremely limited numbers. Weary of the noisescapes of old, he set out to create long-form minimalism utilizing kalimba, piano, "Mini-Pops Jr." drum machine, and tape loops to create a complex bed of interweaving micro-stasis'. The results of these new experiments were as beautiful as they were perplexing. A curious dusty fidelity carries these classic tracks across four sides of vinyl, including all of the original "Flux" content. These compositions glow with a spra...
