  • kanelbjørn – udkants​-​tripper – metaphysical circuits

    $8.00 Add to cart

    Hereby, the debut full length from Denmark’s Kanelbjørn (yeah, we’re proud of the “ø” here – see, also, Fugleøen, Grøn, Øjerum, and… I’m probably inadvertently overlooking a few others.) Incidentally, Kanelbjørn (‘cinnamon bear’) is Danish for ‘ruby tiger.’ Phragmatobia fuliginosa. That’s a moth.

    Well, there are, certainly, complex wings on this masterful mindbender! Multi-faceted yet focused, “Udkants-tripper” spans twelve compositions, encompassing spliff-er-iffic splashes, tech-pop textures, dub-infused wizardry, and lo-fi sci-fi which – to these ears (and wings) – are, simply, perfection.


  • german army – general survey on growing concerns – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    Entering its fourth year of existence, Metaphysical Circuits finally has a German Army release for your perusal. Here, GeAr are a duo – P(eter) K(ris) and GT – wheeling and weaving minimalist cogs and cogitations; eerie synth quilts and dark-matter atmospheres; druggy dungeon dirges. Fuzzy on the surface; rewarding with deeper immersion (headphones and/or head-shop hauls?)


  • rawmean / S/H/A/R/R/P/S & Ragged Lines – lemma/ thought processions – metaphysical circuits

    $8.00 Add to cart

    Brooklyn’s rawmean shares with us, here, an extension of/companion to his brilliant late 2015 full length “Tutulemma” ( mjmjrecords.bandcamp.com/album/tutulemma ), in the form of a seamless, rousing three-track set, titled… “Lemma.” Loops build (upon) harmonies, rhythms, and… go go go! – the supposed boundaries of his own brands of minimal psych-funk, danceteria drive, and sciencewave sophisti-synthery are broken, in barely 14½ minutes. Powerflow.

    On the obverse, S/H/A/R/R/P/S (Jessy Kendall, of Lewiston, Maine) and Ragged Lines (me, of here) ‘pseudo collaborate,’ heading/shattering in different – many – directions. A mirage collage of caustic hot takes, the foundation of “Thought Processions” scrapes the surface of territory similar to rawmean’s, though with undeniably/unavoidably alternate results – spurts of synth-gaze glaze, hip ‘n’ hopped-up beats, found sound, and… discretion, chill-advised.


  • V5N 2G8 / k..k. / micromelancolié – Git Hubris / Séptimo Subsuelo de Sikuris / Performance Patterns and Relationships – metaphysical circuits

    $8.00 Add to cart

    Essentially three “albums” on one tape – hereby, the label’s longest ever (physical) offering. Opening act V5N 2G8 wrings out mangled samples and disturbances, with looped psychedelic aggression, for an unobtrusive 13½ minutes of “fun.” Out of the foyer and into the grand ballroom, the former Vancouverite is usurped by Buenos Aires native k..k., who gets the rest of the first tape-side to work his magic(k). A single, 29 minute monsterpiece unfolds, as an ultra low frequency hum drone climaxes into feedback-laced slow-fi huayno hazecraft. Wow.

    The reverse contains a slew of brilliant untitled short(er than usual, mostly) format synth/rhythmic compositions from Micromelancolié. Hazy diamonds, pitched down 8-bit-esque whimsy, warm technocentric bliss-scapes – not surprisingly, this set is among our favourite Robert Skrzynski works. (’tis also logical, then, that a tour of Poland with German lo-fi synthesizer luminaries Guenter Schlienz and Hering und seine sieben Sachen was recently undertaken. Two tracks from this tape are incorporated into Micromelancolié tracks for a tour cassette, by the way

  • tresilaze – axial city – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    You can only have as much freedom as we grant you.
    The crisis is real but not what you think.
    There’s an island waiting for refugees like you.
    Without knowing you’ll build your own prison and we’ll send it back to the city.
    It’ll be waiting for you.
    We’re missing one.
    Where did he go?

    A dystopian/escapist concept album with a distinct narrative and unique vision, “Axial City” is meticulously built from delicate astral membranes, shards of texture, plasmic synths, abrasive rawk guitars, and savage trance harmony joy. Heavily beautiful. – Metaphysical Circuits


  • northville tunnels – take him to detroit – metaphysical circuits

    $8.00 Add to cart

    Take Him to Detroit” completes Jared Fordyce’s triumphant 2014 Northville Tunnels trilogy. Pre-apocalyptic post-house pumpin’ gives way to spatial noise/drone washes/visitations; dense, bleak, lovely – certainly representative of a still proud Motor City of Industry Winter World. Conversely, the program’s other half flickers forward with brighter, Kosmische-like modular sweetness… evoking past label highlights from low(er)-fi synth minimalists Gardener, Guenter Schlienz, Strange Mountain, and Roman Ego, as well as – of course – NT’s previous two. Guest cover imagery by Phil French.


  • international debris – bathe in the light of distant cities – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    Words from the label: “For your hover car’s cassette player, a trippy treasure from International Debris. Melodic haze, tranquil tech-nosis, disco odysseys, long form beat meditation, smooth futurism transfusions, peppered with obscure voice samples. ID = London’s Ross Baker, plus guest collaborators; each deliver pronounced moments for “Bathe in the Lights…”, yet coherence is ultimately retained.”


  • vejgaard ambient – showboat ep – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    A brief, booming beauty from Vejgaard Ambient, whose third cassette on Metaphysical Circuits showcases new synth/beat blasts – equally old school and fresh; upbeat, extroverted harmonic energy, cosmic analogue science; frenetic floorfillers, short form boxjammers. Definite ”put this one on repeat” material.

    Dig, also, the cool “scanographic” cover art by linsepatron.


  • john hawkwood – anencephalic sumptuary – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    John Hawkwood (aka. Federico Cataldo) debuts with a foursome of progressive downtempo visions. Detached house beats and other techno tricks float over dark angel dust oceans; mantric archaeology; found sound sculptures and delicate melodies, drenched in catacomb esoterica.

    Only available in an edition of 15 through Metaphysical Circuits (home dubbed onto rare ”silver metallic mirror” style C23s.) The artist is apparently self-releasing a cassette edition as well.
