Ten copies available in high temperature red ink, indicate preference of black/red in Paypal notes, I will do my best to accommodate.

Winding Things Down

Hey Everyone, a quick heads up to readers and submitters, I plan to end GMLT in the next month or two. No exhausting description of why, because there's not a real reason. Just time for a new approach. For an add free blog that doesn't give away downloads I think this thing wasn't half bad, and I credit that to the unbelievable folks who make music 100 copies at a time.

In the mean time, I've got a big backlog of submissions, and I plan to listen to, and post about at least one tape from each and everyone. So, you'll see a few more posts yet.

I have wholeheartedly enjoyed and appreciated being allowed to become a part of this incredible community, and my gratitude towards everyone who supports tangible music is endless. I hope to start a new project very soon, and if/when that happens I'll post a link. -Brian

UltraaBriight - Roue de Fortune

The drawing and connecting of lines from UltraaBriight with Roue de Fortune on Orange Milk Records. A torrent of loops and samples, anxious and uncertain, being magnetized together and contextualized. Disconnected elements (airport ambience, skittering percussion, ragged fuzz, horns) imbued with meaning through proximity with complimentary pieces. Listening through the chaotic and precisely placed nuance of this soup created an uncomfortableness for me. An onslaught of misfit sounds that alone would feel like tires without a car, keys without a keyboard. And without that central tether, all of it is given new life together, challenging and enlightening. The mix here is what I find particularly interesting. That all these pieces can existing simultaneously, and rather than compete for space be audible, clear, and available for examination within the audial space. Seven tracks split over two sides of more than 30 minutes of sound.

Pro dubbed blue shells with yellow imprint. Single panel reversible full color jcard featuring alternate artwork. Grab direct from Orange Milk, or stream in full and purchase via Bandcamp.
