Hailing from Rome, cult duo Heroin in Tahiti fuse analogue synths, garage-y guitars and skittering drum machines to gloriously lo-fi effect. This collection of previously unreleased tracks covers material recorded in their studio from a 7-year period. Their unique psychedelic vision touches on everything from beat poetry, house music and Ennio Morricone soundtracks.
A grand return to the Boring Machines label sees Adriano Zanni dive into oppressive soundscapes, densely composed, but lightly ornamented with field recordings, whispered words and micro processes. It's a deeply entrancing album, made ever more so when the processing over spills into outright abstraction.
Founded ten years ago by Federico Troncatti, Ezio Martinazzi and Pier Enrico Villa, WK569 was established as a kind of real-time experiment in sonic architecture and alternative methods of music construction. This single-sided 12” record Omaggio a Marino Zuccheri is a tribute to pioneering sound engineer Marino Zuccheri.
Experimental, hazy folk stripped bare, with breathy female vocals and a slightly unnerving feel. Much more ambient than the previous release 'To the other side', 'Hazy Lights' is meditative, subtle and minimalistic-sounding. Slow-burning, melancholic and emotional. Vinyl LP on the Boring Machines label.
