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!
“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.”
“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.
I could imagine wordless theatre shows taking the music up and build entire complimenting performances around them. I bet the theatres would flourish and turn into newly generated fan machines. Normal person goes in – hears an amazing show – gets hooked on the excitement – comes out as a super fan of this very fine composer. They all will be my new friends, and the excitement as a person could also team up with their excitements & we all live happily in a world dominated by the inspiring concert music. Animation series and movies will be made with them as their core of inspiration, dance moves will be choreographed and everywhere you go the sounds will come out to greet you lovingly.
I don’t think it gets any more flattering than that 🙂 Read the full review here, and be sure to check out the whole site–YIKIS routinely spotlights some of the most interesting and adventurous indie music out there!
Lovely review and photos (!!!) of the Departure 2019 tape on the Raised by Cassettes blog. “There are a lot of sounds in here all at once- some slip beats and some static which makes it even begin to sound like a swarm of bees- and yet when you hear them all combined, in their formation together, it sounds like magic…”
