  • motion sickness of time travel – alpha piscium – hooker vision

    out of stock

    With Alpha Piscium, Rachel Evans returns to the cassette format after nearly a year’s worth of monthly, self-released compact discs. The music on Alpha Piscium was mostly recorded in spring of 2013 but was left to ferment for a year while Evans continued work on her ongoing, monthly CD series. Dense, ever-changing, flirting occasionally with darker textures, the pixelated landscape conjured on Alpha Piscium represents the high point of Rachel’s recorded work. Intended as a proper followup to the widely acclaimed self titled release, Alpha Piscium finds Rachel further refining and expanding her sonic palette while not loosing sight of her, by now, signature sound..

    lp/pink vinyl

    Motion Sickness of Time Travel’s Rachel Evans proper follow-up to 2010’s acclaimed Seeping Through The Veil Of The Unconscious. Over the course of numerous limited releases, Evans has showcased a natural ability to construct floating sound worlds that immerse the listener in an aural cocoon. With Luminaries & Synastry, she’s ready to unleash a whole different kind of voodoo. Recorded through the latter part of 2010, these songs are darker and more condensed, with Evans’ voice sitting even more prominently in the mix. Her synth work is effortless and mesmerizing, adding the perfect accompaniment to those vocals which are, as ever, the star of the show. On the opening “Luminaries,” rhythmically hypnotic synth chords provide a gaseous backbone while Evans pierces the darkness with her voice. It’s a perfect foreshadowing for what’s to follow on the rest of the album, and “Synastry” follows and unfurls in a minimal and haunted fashion, reveling in its simplicity, finding a perfect balance between grounded effervescence and astral projection. Skeletal rhythms and sunburned arpeggios return on album centerpiece “Day Glow,” dripping in miserable beauty — the song makes vague kosmische nods and paints a thick coat of sublime whimsy to fill in the cracks. When it reaches its peak — it’s just absolutely devastating. Heading toward the finish line, bombarded by gorgeous, revolving synthesizer passages on “Eight Nineteen” and the blissed-out “The Walls Were Dripping Stars,” it’s clear that Luminaries & Synastry offers something special in the ever-expanding discography of one of the year’s finest new voices. Artwork by Hobo Cult’s Frank Ouellette. The audio has been re-mastered and cut to vinyl at Dubplates and Mastering, Berlin. On pink vinyl. The included CD contains the entire album, plus two bonus tracks not on vinyl.

  • motion sickness of time travel – seeping through the veil of the unconscious

    slight seam split on top of jacket

    Motion Sickness of Time Travel is the solo moniker of La Grange, Georgia’s Rachel Evans. She also plays in the duo, Quiet Evenings, with her husband and runs the Hooker Vision label with him as well. And while she’s done some really great stuff, this album takes all of it, everything, to incredible new heights.

    Evans concocts five whirlwind romances all in the space of less than an hour. Beauty, magic and bleeding effervescence come together in perfect harmony. Vague electro meanderings hide hints of early Grouper as Evans’ compositions sing like an ecstatic choir. While the songs are built around vaguely-catchy, repetitive synth backbones, she laces an incredible array of instrumental layers between those bones creating music that is as dense and complex as it is continous. Yet, the real star here is her voice. sometimes its at the fore, other times its buried underneath the plodding keys but it never gets lost and always shines.

    As the opening chords and rising whispers of “Clairvoyance” begin, you are immediately immersed into the well. Evans’ voice sings haunted, wordless lullabies that sound distant and strange yet oddly comforting. The entire aural world of “Seeping” is populated with ghosts, haunting the crevices between notes and adding a beguiling sense of complexity. With heavy kraut influences, “Mental Projection” is a midnight gem while the dark, rhythmic sequences of “Telepathy” would perfectly fill the halls of a spectral ballroom. These kraut and electronic leanings are part of what give Motion Sickness of Time Travel such a distinct sound. This is stunning music and an album that further unfolds with each and every listen.
