  • max eilbacher – mescalin headache

    out of stock

    Cavelife is proud to present the solo debut of Maryland’s foremost electronic wunderkind. Max has played in and toured with numerous groups over the last few years, all the while fronting his teenage-noise turned caveman-intellectual rock band Needle Gun since high school. In early 2011, he began giving solo performances with a modular synth of his own design and whatever Casios, tape machines, biofeedback monitors, eerie homemade video and performance art ideas he found lying around the wasteland of Southwest Baltimore. And these sides reflect where they were borne out, this is not temperate work. There’s no synthesizer drone or arpeggiator muck in the driver’s seat like so much of the recent synth ‘boum.’ There are stylistic jumps and blind turns all over a quickly changing terrain. At times it feels like Eilbacher’s sliding sideways into his own fucked up urban sci-fi world, taking you with him but the calm and unhurried manner makes the trip surefooted, comfortable even. A bold debut that’s not to be missed.

    Andrew P. Storrs (Rum Raisin, Pagan Time Travel Home Video) looses a far out score for a 1970s PBS documentary on Midatlantic ravens in the 17th century. Envisioning reenactment footage of the 1669 Baltimore Renn-Faire, his fingers dancing across the keys of the Teisco S-100P synthesizer, an anomaly is birthed in Storrs’ musical trajectory. One that represents the best qualities of its elusive creator. Modern antique synthesizer composition for fans of Creel Pone, subterranean reality television and classical music.
