About this item
The killer first release for the Polytechnic Youth label by the wonderfully named ADDERALL CANYONLY. “Museum of Fire” contains 8 tracks of uptempo kraut themed, occasionally whacked out electronica, with sporadic nods to a darker more industrial TG groove in places, aligned with classic late 70s / early 80s minimal synth flourishes. In a nutshell, it ticks all the boxes for yr modern day synth nut!
Little is known about Mr. Canyonly himself, preferring to step out of the shadows intermittently with a number of aliases for different musical projects. Let’s leave it to the man himself to shed a little light on this new one and his background:
“Adderall Canyonly is a synthesist and string wrangler named Wayne Longer, formerly of Portland, Oregon. In ‘Oxykitten’ he is named Justin Case and is an entirely different person. Sometimes these people overlap, such as the (previous) album "The Cutting Room". A lifelong fan of analog synths and brooding soundtracks but equally raised on a steady diet of post-rock and krautrock, it's generally a confusing time when the “record” button is hit. Much goes in, little comes out, and then much is added later, sometimes without good reason. But that's exactly why someone invented the “fast forward” button”
Happy to keep his enigmatic persona intact, PY strongly recommends this wonderful length; it’s a pressing of 300 on vinyl and only and is dressed in fabulous cover art. Sure to sell out in super quick style…
