SILENT LAND TIME MACHINE / MOONWOOD release show (Toronto)

We haven’t even officially announced this split tape yet, but we’re going to release SLTM and Moonwood on Sides 13 & 14 of the Split Tapes Series on October 17th at the Tranzac in Toronto. Confusingly this is ahead of the release for Sides 11 & 12 (Nick Kuepfer / Khora) which will be in February (though the tapes themselves should be available as of Canzine (October 21st). Stay tuned for more details on both these releases!

SILENT LAND TIME MACHINE (http://sltm.bandcamp.com/)
From Austin, TX this one man avant folk soundscaper plays in Toronto for the first time. A master of warm guitar textures, builds loops and layers only to mix them into his own brand of post psych-folk. The love and warm of folk mixed with beautiful swells & sweeps of post-rock, full sounds washing over your body.

MOONWOOD (http://moonwood.bandcamp.com/)
Freak psych/folk project of Jakob Relinger (Arachnidisc) occupies an eerie space between some dark forest & the spiritual beyond that only exists in some winding & daunting expanse of space. His haunting guitar work exudes a elusive warmth & nostalgia that draws us into his realm. Vocal hums float through the atmosphere with draw out didgeridoo tones. Flute tones interact with bells and chime percussion as guitar notes navigate this gypsy-esque landscape. Mystical psych for the modern forest dweller. Dig!

SYMBOL (http://soundcloud.com/lightlodge)
Austin, TX ambient kraut synth relaxer, lays out some space-scapes for the modulating masses. Sounds stretched out to the point where they sparkle & glisten. The gentle hum of a note becomes a fuzz drenched wave only to subside back into a peaceful hum wavering in the expanse of time.SOLHORN (http://solhorn.bandcamp.com/)
Avant folk/jazz/pop outsider Michael Mørkholt of Denmark preforms his compositions as Solhorn in Canada for the first time! Folk prog structures filled with a sense of playfulness akin to Shugo Tokumaru. Meandering songs, guitar notes joke with percussion in a languid way. Electronics bleep & bloop, ringing out there tones in a dialogue with flutes. Probably some of the most fun music you’ll have heard in a while. Come make the hang.

Aaron Lumley / The Knot split tape preview

02/08/2012

The first cassette of our SPLIT TAPES SERIES 2 is set to be released on 2012/08/21. 20 minute sides; pro-duped; hand assembled outer sleeves. Edition of 50. We don’t have pre-orders set up but if you want to reserve a copy, you should email arachnidiscs@hotmail.com to get put on a list.

Side 9 is avant improv bassist Aaron Lumley who’s been making waves lately with his harrowing long-player Wilderness.  Of which Foxy Digitalis said “…searching for new methods to escape the limitations of technique, the human body, and the physical science of acoustics. By accomplishing this without straying beyond the boundaries of man and implement, he’s shown mastery of a vigorous beast, a task not for the faint of heart. Furthermore, the album is as appetizing for casual listeners as it is for serious improv mavens – a gravity-defying feat that is as rare as it is welcome!” We posit this improvised session goes one further, both visceral and teeming with expression in the traditions of Dave Holland and François Rabbath.

Side 10 is the debut release for The Knot, a cello duo made up of composer/improviser Nick Storring and avant virtuoso Tilman Lewis. Intertwining beauty and discord meeting somewhere between the gravel pit and the northern lights.
