LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS

Repress of this early, self-distributed Light Of Other Days release. We only got on board with the label five records in, and with only 150 copies of this initially pressed, it's become somewhat of a cult collector's item amogst fans of this emergent label.

Hove's debut EP is full of fuzzy melodies fused with shimmering arpeggios and reduced cosmic beats. Produced at the Light of Other Days headquarters in the heart of Zurich, Hove developed his sound out of various live-jams, which he recorded onto a Tascam cassette recorder. These recordings alongside numerous field recordings build the foundation of the EP "Journey to Arendal".

Influenced by the sound aesthetic of early electronic producers from the 80’s and 90’s, as well as contemporary house, disco or techno, Hove’s music always has a certain kind of warmth to it. Dusty, shuffling grooves meet woozy guitar chords while crystal clear synth melodies are paired with field recordings of rivers, birds or nocturnal city atmospheres. 

Michal Turtle Feat HOVE

Middle Of The Road Less Travelled

"Middle of the Road Less Travelled" is not only the debut release by Michal Turtle on Light of Other Days, it is also his first new material released since the amazing reissues put out by Music From Memory in recent years. The three tracks on this EP were written and produced by Michal in 2017 with additional production and guitar playing by Light of Other Days’ very own HOVE.

The two met back in 2016 when HOVE contacted Michal after he heard the 12“ "Are you Psychic" and was blown away. As it turned out Michal was living in Basel which is only a short train ride away by train from the Light of Other Days home base in Zurich. The two started meeting and playing music together. Soon after, they put together a live-show for Michal’s music which had its debut show at Phono Festival in Denmark in 2017. During this time, they started working on new music together as well. The result is this EP.

The music on "Middle of the Road Less Travelled" is a continuation of Michal’s musical exploration into other-worldly territory. Michal is a master in building hypnotic textures from repetitive rhythms that collide with trippy and atmospheric synthesizers. The delayed and dubby guitar lines by HOVE were recorded during rehearsal sessions in Michal’s living room in Basel and the last track of the EP "Agallo (Real)" ends with vocals performed by Lucianne Lassalle. Besides playing in local bands with Michal back in the 80s, Lucianne also performed and co- wrote early Michal Turtle tracks like "Phantoms of Dreamland" or "Village Voice" from his first record "Music from the Living Room".


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Exquisite release on the superb Light From Other Days exploring Michal Turtle's Reichian side: repetitive, minimalist compositions featuring staccato, tuned instruments and humanoid electronix. A masterpiece!
