Bandicoot Trail - Hocus Focus

Murky underwater atmospherics from Bandicoot Trail, with Hocus Focus on Fadeaway Tapes. Ambiguous looped guitar, delicately woven into fields of vague and constantly evolving sounds. I'm digging a simultaneously claustrophobic and open ended feel to the entire affair. Ebs and flow like river grasses, the front of the c32 transitions from a heavy murk, upwards into a light hypnotic glare. The collaboration between Scott Johnson and Carter Mullin is a complex and thoroughly relaxing tape, which is exactly why I like it. Sounds like floating under the water, starring up at the sun.

Released in June, edition of 60 on clear green shells. Sold out at Discriminate, still available directly from Fadeaway.
