sealed from the source. ingram marshall's "the fragility cycles" is a partly scored, partly improvised piece for the solitary performer on gambuh, voice, iron clanged, synthesizer, pre-recorded tapes and a four channel tape delay. this recording is a mix of two performances given a day apart at charlemagne palestine's loft in 1977.

summer scenes ~ @lastresorthq follow on from the delightful and singular g.s. schray record w/ an album of similarly intuitive, bittersweet jazz and classical tinted material from akron, ohio neighbors kit, stu, corey, g.s., matt and mike. peacefully paired w a re:up of the beloved sul tempo reissue.

just in, for dancing or leisure: scraps “ttnik” & 100%’s “you are 100%” from sydney-based moontown records. scraps delivers gauzy vox paired with minimalist drum machine, keyboard & snaking synth that drives off-kilter towards a mysterious destination. “you are 100%” is an amalgam of house, italo disco, and new wave for a darkened trip along the water.
