RECORD OF THE WEEK

http://analecta.bandcamp.com/

analecta is an effort to create artistic, inventive music in the vein of instrumental post-rock and post-metal drawing on the collective minds of Calvin Maloney, Kevin Kingery, and Patrick Quigley. Previous experience in bands like doctor!doctor! and Sleep Patterns have brought members together to push each other to grow musically and professionally as artists. In the more than 30 shows within its first six months of existence, analecta has had the pleasure to play with bands such as Native; Paucity; Koji; If These Trees Could Talk; Mose Giganticus; Listener; Sohns; Deadhorse; The Reptilian; Into it, Over it; and many more very talented local and regional musicians. Analecta invites you to come experience moving, modern music created live with feeling and exploration from the comforts of traditional post-rock to the outer reaches of non-traditional instrumentation, electronics, textures, and sounds.

RECORD OF THE WEEK

www.obfusc.net

“Midnight Dome” is Obfusc’s third album release, offering a development of sound and style from his previous albums ‘Internal Countryside’ and ‘Cities of Cedar’, with a flowing fusion of tracks and ambient elements.

The album is a progression for the artist in terms of both production and presentation. Each track segues perfectly into the next, enhancing the listening experience with a seamless flow that meanders between more concrete beat-based melodic tracks and ambient washes and textural interludes. In the artist’s own words:

Working ambient interludes into the sequence, building them from field recordings of fragments of memory — friends laughing on a beach at night, stomping down volcanic rocks in Iceland, rough takes of guitar recordings from who-knows-when — makes it much more of a personal experience for me. I like to be able to tell someone I care about, “Remember the sea lions that we stumbled upon in Oregon?” That sound is buried deep, but it’s there. It immortalizes some of my favourite moments of the last couple of years, a period of intense personal growth and self-realization.

The packaging that the Obfusc CD came in was very different to anything that I had previously seen.

From the Obfusc website : packaged in laser-cut acrylic cases designed/fabricated by the inimitable David Tagg (of Install Sound/EED fame), hand-assembled by me. I wanted the physical release to feel special. I think this route accomplishes that and more
