“This isn’t a trip to the dazzling cornucopia of the modern grocery store, but a descent into a commercial hellscape, with a quick succession of shimmering blips suggesting a nightmarish aural vision of the checkout aisle.”

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.
