This video could not be more perfect. Well executed, and masterfully cut to accompany an excellent new Roladex single. <3<3<3
Roladex & ((PRESSURES)) - Limited Edition split 7” featuring original artwork on a fold over insert that nicely complements the music contained therein. Pressed on high quality transparent urochrome vinyl. Snag yours from Disko Obscura here.
Medical Records in close collaboration with Disko Obscura Records presents a special split 7” showcasing 1 new track each by ((PRESSURES)) and Roladex. ((PRESSURES)) hails from New Orleans, LA. They craft their unique futuristic icy tracks on a museum’s worth of analog synths and drum machines. This release follows their first self-titled LP on Disko Obscura. Their contribution “The Voices” is a propulsive and dripping with synth textures track featuring vocoded vocals. Roladex (a veteran of Medical Records already with their “Anthems For the Micro-Age” LP) hails from Seattle by way of Texas. Blending girl/boy vocals with catchy pop hooks drenched in a seductive melancholy, Roladex also uses a plethora of vintage gear. “Glass Statuette” is their new track for this 7” and features their signature sound with a bit of an evolution into Moroder-esque cascading arpeggios. Fans of both artists will surely want this in their collection. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Limited Edition
In case you were asleep at the wheel this last week, Aphex Twin's first new studio album in 13 years just went up for sale on Warp, after a brief and cryptic track listing leak on TOR. While we wait for new material, please enjoy my all time favorite Aphex Twin song.
Aphex Twin - Syro 3XLP is available from Warp for pre-order now, with the current estimated shipping date of 9/19. With demand insanely high, I wouldn’t doubt if that gets delayed some.
Aphex Twin makes his return on Warp with new album Syro. Richard D. James has been releasing music since the beginning of the ‘90s. His first full-length album, Selected Ambient Works 85-92, came out in 1992 through R&S Records. The first Aphex Twin release on Warp would be 1993’s On EP, which was followed by four studio albums for the label, as well as numerous other EPs. Syro will be the first new Aphex Twin album since 2001’s Drukqs.
