• ambient not not ambient  (CD, £6.25)

    label: audio dregs recordings

    This collection was curated by Paul Dickow together with E*Rock as a long term project showcasing some outsider ambient works and blissed-out pop from their hometown in Portland as well as friends across the seas. The emphasis was on bringing together artists from a variety of scenes and different underground bubbles of music producers. Though many of the artists may have never previously bumped shoulders it was important to keep a common thread in the musicality and a conscious flow to the collection. Ambient Not Not Ambient should act strongly on its own merit as a complete thematically unified album of exclusive tracks, not an ad-hoc collection of unrelated tracks. The 75+ minute compilation of exclusive tracks is available at special "EP" price. What you'll find is the mellow side of sonic terrorists like Yellow Swans next to old school electronic mainstays like Freeform or AM/PM, and full blown psychedelic wizards like White Rainbow and Birdshow. Tracks in Lucky Dragons' unique "sound art" style next to pop craftsman E*Vax (of Ratatat fame) float together with sparse compositions by Sawako (12k). There will be some fresh faces on the table for almost any listener. Smoke & Mirrors is the debut appearance by a new duo featuring Strategy’s Paul Dickow. TRACK LISTING: 1. E*Vax "Awl" 2.
