Our second release with this vital, Brooklyn-based electronic combo. As well known supporters of their work (myself having written liner notes for three LP releases, as well as recording Side B of this cassette), we've watched LDP evolve to new levels of creating thoughtfully composed, long-form synth "symphonies," much in the style of our 70s heroes; mindful music, that takes you on a journey with both gentle and arresting persuasion. It's noise, but it's not "noise," it's synthesizer music but raucously alive, vibrant and never static.
Side A finds Long Distance Poison in approaching terrain to their newest LP Human Program, in that the duo of Cearley and Bradbury have arrived at a glorious and tempered compositional coherence and focus. Side B was recorded live in 2012 at the now-defunct and much-beloved Death By Audio, and finds LDP at their most haunting; an eerie piece that recalls Saucerful of Secrets / More-era Pink Floyd, with doors of frequency and timbre opening and closing all around the listener. These are pro-pressed cassettes, in an edition of 100 with excellent sound quality on chrome tape.
