A wickedly fun minimal synth gem that hits a lot of my personal robot pop g-spots and thats thankfully been retrieved from tape culture oblivion by the fine folks at Kernkrach and sent out into the world in a swank sandpaper jacket. Super stripped and Man Machine robotic at times, childrens show theme giddy in its melodicism at others, the sound here is probably most comparable to the archival Guyer's Connection LP also issued by this imprint. Proactively plastic, wafer thin, neon bright and totally irresistible. Mutant Sounds

David Grubbs (guitarist, pianist, and vocalist) was a founding member of Squirrel Bait, Bastro, and Gastr del Sol. He has also played in The Red Krayola and The Wingdale Community Singers.
David Grubbs’ last piece "Hybrid Song Box.4" began as the accompaniment to installation artist Angela Bulloch’s 2008 eponymous artwork, which was part of the Guggenheim’sTheanyspacewhatever exhibit last year.
But don't be afraid: David Grubbs's 26-minute soundtrack picks up sonically where "An Optimist Notes the Dusk" left off. Grubbs brings his thick, solid-body electric guitar tone to the most relaxed of tempos, the most spacious of handlings.
Limited to 1000.
