About this item
The second of November’s Polytechnic Youth releases was a chance outing that came about from a discussion with Long Distance Poison’s Nathan Cearley (LDP having released two LPs on PY sister label, the more kraut / kosmische themed Deep Distance). Realising a love for early Cabaret Voltaire and TG, and more darkly themed industrial grooves than you’d associate LDP with, these collaborative recordings were instantly given the PY thumbs up- a nice change of style from it’s usual synth pop / minimal leanings we thought! Where some might consider this perhaps a PY curveball, we personally think it sits in nicely with previous output…
3 ace tracks containing in Nathan’s own words: “Stereo live recordings in front of an audience and in private. Featuring Mark Dwinell (Forma) and Nathan Cearley (Long Distance Poison) on modular synthesizers. Utilizing repetition to unnerve and destabilize rather than coddle and sooth. Rejecting the notion that an urban beat driven music is necessarily escapist and an expression of consumption and lifestyle. Creating a music of no escape.
Mark Dwinell is a multi-instrumentalist and founding member of the Brooklyn electronic band Forma. He has releases on Spectrum Spools and Kranky and solo releases on Ba Da Bing! and Amish Records.
Nathan Cearley is a founding member of the Brooklyn experimental electronics duo Long Distance Poison and has releases on Digitalis Ltd, Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace!, Hausu Mountain and Deep Distance. He was the organizer of the long running outsider electronics performance series Modular Equinox/Modular Solstice”
