Thanks to Radio Woking’s The Comfy Show, hosted by The Committee for Sonic Research’s Trixie Delight and Dental Drill, for playing “Metro Musix” (from Retrophonica – Aetheric Transmissions) earlier this month. Catch it below or on Mixcloud:
“Things move on into a strange seductive time traveling zone, one in which an old school train rattles over the tracks and the landscape is presumably all made out of electronic memorability. You can hear the birthplace of drone, the early BBC synth basement experimentational vibes, the electric joyfulness of truly re innovating music as it had always existed before.”
One more day til the release of Retrophonica – Aetheric Transmissions, and the reviews are rolling in. Electronic Sound Magazine (paywall) said of my contribution, “…the approach is deeply referential, evoking rich experimentation through tones, loops, and processed voices that feel like they could easily unravel messily.” And ANTI: Music Review writes, “Metro Musix by Elizabeth Joan Kelly is one of my favorites off the compilation, refining many of the elements typically pursued but adding her typical cataclysmic touch that becomes all the more riveting, and forbidden-sounding.” Read the full ANTI review here, and don’t forget to buy your copy of Retrophonica; proceeds benefit Delia Derbyshire Day!
Pre-orders for Retrophonica – Aetheric Transmissions, curated by John (Sound Effects of Death and Horror) and released by Wormhole World, are now available via Bandcamp. And with a pre-order you get a download of my contribution, “Metro Musix.” I put together a video for the song that Louder Than War was kind enough to premiere; check it out on the site, and read more about Delia Derbyshire Day.
