  • sky stadium – setting vision – monorail trespassing

    out of stock

    Pensive and deliberate, New Jersey’s Jeffrey Roman mines a similar approach to that of Mirror To Mirror — slowly unfolding melodies rife with symbolism. His pieces are the early morning sibling to Alex’s night meditations, all upward keys and filter sweeps. One of the more optimistic efforts in the Monorail catalogue.

  • sky stadium / pierrot lunaire – windowing – koppklys

    out of stock

    Like a calm spring breeze, Sky Stadium (Jeff Roman) offers a delicate and beautiful farewell to the long cold winter finally retreating. As life slowly starts to sprout up from the ground again, the opening side of ‘Windowing’ serves as a reminder of the brighter days that lie ahead.

    On what could arguably be Pierrot Lunaire’s (John DeNizio) most mellow offering to date, we are quickly plunged deep beneath the surface on the second side, where a much stranger world awaits. Segueing stoically through a handful of really remarkable shifts and turns, we are offered a tour into a cosmos that is at once mysterious and curiously comforting.

  • ultra dome – home videos – bridgetown

    $6.00 Add to cart

    The duo of Rachel Razza (TealFX label) and Jeff Roman (Sky Stadium, Tile, New Future Wanderer)’s recordings encapsulate an optimistic counterpart to the ominous connotations commonly associated with drone and ambient music. “Home Videos” captures the warm, romantic feeling of softened synth pads and bathes them in the murk of tape hiss. Birthed out of the Trenton, NJ basement scene in 2008, Ultra Dome recordings have been few and far between since their formation but are as welcome as any other Sky Stadium-related release for their uncanny ability to raise one’s spirits. What sets the duo apart from Roman’s solo outings is Razza’s subtle focus on rhythm. Murky beats dip below the surface of several songs on “Home Videos,” while twinkling synths float on in a simple and carefree manner.
    Limited to 100 chrome cassettes with color labels, packaged in white cases with full-color, doublesided printing on 80# gloss stock.


  • sky stadium / potions – split – lillerne tapes

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Twenty minutes each from Colonia, NJ’s Sky Stadium and Chicago, IL’s Potions. Sky Stadium (Jeff Roman), fresh off of great 2011 releases on Monorail Trespassing, Bridgetown, Goldtimers and more, offers six tracks of truly beautiful and warm synth ambience. “Gatefold” and “A Vision So Close” are unique and true space soundscapes with enough texture and depth to mix well with the thick layers of synthesized melody and powerful drones on the rest of the side. Listen to “Right Now” on the sampler below. Potions (Tom Owens) has made a good name for himself on the local Chicago DIY scene with his improvised live performances and ability to cover a lot of ground stylistically with the Potions moniker. “Booby Trap” is a squiggly and rhythmically tight jam that moves into the darker and deeply psychy and mesmerizing “Mars Castle” (listen below). “Lazy River” is a great example of Potions’ ability to bring together a beat-oriented song structure, bordering on pop music, into the realm of ambient synth work and more loose improvisations.
