SWELTER "live in lowell"
Long-awaited follow-up to the premiere Cardinal Records release is now available in physical and digital formats! Once again join David Payne (Fossils) and Howard Stelzer in a journey of mangled tape and twisted electronics. Recorded in Lowell, Mass at Gallery 119 in August 2014.
Published by Tape Drift Records (US) as a CDR in a limited edition of 50 copies.
from the label: "Swelter indeed. A hot slab of collaborative psychic summer energy burn from two of the finest experimentalists in North America – Howard Stelzer and David Payne (Fossils). Two-man howl of shredded tapes and analog junk recorded live in August 2014 in Lowell, MA, the music on this disc is all about texture, sizzle and feel. It would be folly (and beside the point) to pick out individual contributions, as both voices blend superbly into a single slab of sound. When the music is this good, it’s far better to sit back, let the sound wash over you and experience the ultimate sonic catharsis. A dense and even psychedelic mind scrubbing that offers multiple epiphanies and aesthetic rewards. New details emerge with each listen, but it’s the overall immersive effect that will pull you back in time and time again. Like entering a new world where time and space have collapsed and all that remains is the beautiful abyss."
