Such a great review of You Can Never Leave by Antonio Poscic in the newest edition of The Wire, and not just because he has nice things to say about my contribution. More below:
Elizabeth Joan Kelly makes a flock of strings and percussion flicker like a failing simulation, while Apta, Moray Newlands and The Snaps Jar use the collapsing elation of synths and motivational messages to cut through the fabricated optimism and false sense of safety with unsettling satire. Despite its crowdsourced nature, You Can Never Leave is cohesive and succeeds where many highly conceptual works fail. It really makes you feel the misanthropic essence of capitalism.
You Can Never Leave is available on Bandcamp, and The Wireis available in print or online.
It’s with the utmost pride and joy that I share that Orca, Attack!’s C.M.S.O. is reviewed in this month’s edition of the incredible The Wire magazine. Spenser Tomson writes, “…incoherent snippets of detail are delivered via garbled new age electronics and blissed out chorals, like a sleep learning tape that’s been chewed by the deck.” The full review is available from Exact Editions or your local library. THANK YOU to Spenser and The Wire editorial staff for their support!
