A recurring series, featuring mesmerizing songs for one to lose sense of time and space, mind and body. Three acts today, including tracks from solo electronic musicians Co La and Mister Lies, as well as a bootlegged live session from Portland's Swahili.
By regurgitating a whole slew of influences past and present, solo artist Matthew Papich, aka Co La, creates pastiches that might fall into the trappings of electronic glitchiness if it weren't for their frequently analog source materials. Hands In The Dark records have just unlocked Papich's upcoming EP, Soft Power Memento
, for us to stream in its entirety, below. The album single is "Love Nest", and were it actually a love nest, it'd be a strange one -- certainly a bungalow, though possibly outfitted with a surround-sound speaker system that plays alongside grooving jazz musicians and drumming natives.
The EP is being released by Hands In The Dark and NNA Tapes, in limited quantities, on CD and tape.
