Concretism Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Some good old-fashioned idiosyncrasy from Concretism here. For Concrete And Country synthesises much of the Great British oddball lineage - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box Records, Public Service Broadcasting etc. - with a newly-resurfaced Cold War paranoia. It’s the aural equivalent of a day out in Dungeness. The fact that the artwork was done by Richard Littler (the brains behind Scarfolk) only adds to the sense of strangeness.

A spooky little record with little information offered up about who left it lying about, 'Town Planning' lives up to its mystery, collating archived audio from the Cold War era with more traditional but still expressively experimental sounds -- synths, loops and all that good obscuring stuff. The sound is detached and disengaged, as if the Cold War had washed over Britain and sucked out its soul.
Following up the hugely successful 'Town Planning' Concretism delves deep into his archives to collect together several tracks only previously available as download only. Very popular with our customers, Concretism makes vintage synth tunes for fans of Boards of Canada, the Advisory Circle, Kraftwerk and anything synthy from the '70s. On utilitarian grey vinyl and limited to 300.
Hurry hurry, fans of Concretism: their new release is a single hand-cut using lathé techniques, and is limited to just 45 copies: each hand-numbered. Beneath The City Streets, which serves as an exciting preview of the incoming Electricity LP, is a suitably atmospheric trip down hauntological tunnels. On Castles In Space.
