  • long distance poison – mirror totality – moss archive

    out of stock

    Brooklyn-based deep zone trio, Long Distance Poison return with a slow-burner in the truest sense. Sounds so massive they were literally shredding my tapes at first. On Mirror Totality we are presented with two dense, throbbing synapse clouds for us to wrap our heads around… Or do they wrap around our heads?

    Those familiar with LDP’s previous offerings on labels such as Digitalis, VCO, Constellation Tatsu and Tusco Embassy might be surprised by this shift from their usual cascading of meditative shadow, to a new sound that pulsates with a seething energy. One imagines misfiring synapses and squelching brain fluids. These meticulously crafted pieces of analog sound will surely sink deep into the crevasses of the mind.

    Hand-stamped edition of 50. Designed, printed, assembled, and dubbed at Moss Archive. Printed on metallic card-stock.

    Subconsciously perceivable in Kyle Landstra’s latest release, is a sense of spacial awareness. Resonant Futures transports the listener to a vast landscape that stretches in all directions. Feel the oscillations flow over the horizon, through the valleys and into your spirit. There are specific techniques used to obtain this effect, which give these recordings a sense of weight and depth.

    Kyle’s recent live sets around Chicago have been gaining a reputation for being a transcendent, spiritual adventure. Resonant Futures was recorded live in an improvised setting, creating an album that feels like a truly intimate yet boundless experience.

  • gay shapes – untitled – moss archive

    out of stock

    Joe Bastardo, Mickey O’Hara, and Abdul Sherzai comprise Gay Shapes. The Worcester, MA trio skirts the line between peaceful emptiness and absolute darkness. Circuit-bent electronics, samples, and analog synthesizers merge together, creating a massive atmosphere that shifts between vast, open spaces, and claustrophobic caverns of doom. Mind-numbing frequency blasts and fizzy electronic splatter fuse together to create a uniquely organic wall of sound.

    Over the past two years, the band has played countless shows, and they have been refining their song with each performance. These electronic zones have been crystallizing at a deliberately nonchalant pace. Past releases were assembled in piecemeal fashion: live recordings merged with solo creations, blurred with field noise, etc. This latest cassette showcases the band in its pure, live setup. Recorded straight to tape one summer night at the Firehouse, these recordings feature no overdubs; minor edits were made only for the sake of tape length. MOSS 006 is a document of Gay Shapes in their truest form.

    Edition of 50 hand-stamped cassettes. Designed, printed, assembled, and dubbed at Moss Archive.
    Recorded, mixed and edited at the Firehouse. July 2012.
