About this item

'A mechanical ghost in the corner of our room, The Electric Capablanca spins spectres, shades and sonics while nobody looks. Lifestyle product for a Dolce Vita dreamer, the device - abandoned by one careless owner - now dreams up probable chaos.'

Released September 2019, enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

Turn the dials to creak splinters of 70s Italian midi classical (Venosta, Musci), imagined mitteleuropa ambient (Froese, Popol Vuh) and spiritual mathematics from the old new world (Spiegel, Hassell, Riley).'

Cold Blow’s new imprint SWIMS partners up with Kit Records for the second time in 2019 following the essential vinyl edition of Roméo Poirier’s "Plage Arriere" - simply stunning! 


Matt says: Oh my this is great. Electro-acoustic, pastoral soundscapes dreamed up by an anonymous creator. Soft-focused and cinematic in parts it exists as a one-off piece, up their with Quiet Village's "Silent Movie". Don't let this one pass you by folks...
