M4DMV on Bandcloud, What Penumbras on Dublin Digital

Bandcloud, aka Aidan Hanratty, had some kind words to say about Music for the DMV and my one year recap. Here’s an excerpt:

“It’s a concept album about visiting the Department of Motor Vehicles, and it mirrors the agitation and unease many feel there. It’s clubby, ambient, expansive and weird. I like it.”

Read the full review here along with words on John Beltran, Cloak, Pamcy, Forest Management, Litt, Oracula, Juarta Putra, D. Strange and Golden Chorale.

Bandcloud also played my song “What Penumbras” off Strategic Tape Reserve’s ShopLand World: Music for a Discovery Park of Miniature Supermarkets on his Dublin Digital Radio show last week; you can hear the full show, including tracks by Kings of Tomorrow, Diplo, Low Normal, Mischa Lively, Ten Years Lost, and more, over on Mixcloud:

What Penumbras on COUNTERZINE

Tomorrow is the release day for ShopLand World, a compilation album of music written for a Discovery Park of Miniature Supermarkets on Strategic Tape Reserve’s label. COUNTERZINE has a sneak preview and review of the album up, with these generous words to say about my submission “What Penumbras:”

a frantic but industrious piece that captures the childhood nostalgia of beelining from megastore to megastore in the quickest, most efficient way possible so as to experience as many wares as possible before die Ausgangssperre. A sure-to-be favorite for fans of the practical aspects of tiny supermarkets: smaller stores means more stores and less distance between each one, a prime selling point of ShopLand this track expertly communicates.

Preview all 25 tracks on COUNTERZINE today, and get your pocketbooks ready for the beautifully designed cassette tapes that will be on sale tomorrow!

Voyeur on YIKIS

Yeah I Know It Sucks has outdone themselves again by reviewing the entire I Heart Noise Spring Compilation, with these kind words to say about my contribution “Voyeur:”

“Always impressive wherever the work of this artist pops up, Voyeur doesn’t go under the reader unnoticed as well. A full on deranged feeling of music that is dense and all over the colorful audio spectrum. Beautifully designed, moving, innovating and scarily surreal like a short story of uncomfortable creepiness in which Elizabeth goes into the mind of a voyeur and channels the findings through excellent music.”

Unusual Capsule on YIKIS

Perpetually supportive Yeah I Know It Sucks has reviewed the ENTIRE Prosthion Recording This Machine Confuses Fascists: An ACLU Benefit Compilation, with some blushingly laudatory words for my contribution, “Unusual Capsule:”

“freaking hell, she hitting brilliance again over here, with a full on stereo mindf*ck, wicked beat weirdness, a work of amazeballs quality that feels like it is on a next level while still having that trademark of humanity to it; don’t want to be an ass licking licker but this is absolutely brilliant.”

Thank you as always to YIKIS for their unending support and kindness, and don’t forget to check out the full album: 36 tracks, $5, all for a good cause.
