Release date: 01/03/2021

Barcode: 2090505048728

Catalog no.: PY0000142

Item ID: 504872

The long-awaited return to the PY fold (after 6 years in hibernation), for the mysterious Volume Groop. Having lasted this long without revealing their identities, the enigmatic artistes continue their exploratory electronics project, "as an imagined soundtrack to physical education in 1970s Britain- experiments in Primary school educational electronics for PE".
All 4 tracks were created with the use of a Roland SH101, a school organ, a procoder and a Roland Space Echo RE-201. The tracks were created and recorded in the school hall with the help of the children. Like the accompanying Masonic Kitchen 45, this ticks all your boxes for fans of early Mute, some early Cherry Red; sometimes lighter, more playful synthpop, sometimes a little more darker and menacing. From the lightness and space of Cluster & Eno to the darker hand of Chris Carter; this EP's a beauty; a 4 track minimal synth EP, over 10 minutes @ 45rpm - an EP like the old days and expected to sell out quick style.
250 copies.

PYE CORNER AUDIO & FATEN KANAAN - THE DARKEST WAVE/MIRROR LAKE

Repress! The A-side 'The Darkest Wave' features pulsing icy synth drones over which the cool NY narrative owes nods to some '70s Carpenter-eque VHS chillwave soundtrack (not unlike some of Umberto's work of the last decade or so). It's a beautifully evolving, slow burner ... read more »

HOME CURRENT - THAT SUMMER/GELB

HOME CURRENT - THAT SUMMER/GELB

'That Summer' is a beautifully punchy, percussive slice of electronica. This real slow burner, which is best whacked out with the volume hiked up, complements the more stripped down, yet equally melodic flip 'Gelb', that sort of reminds of Yellow Magic Orchestra. Limited to ... read more »
