Seefeel founding member Mark Clifford releases an EP of scraping, singing guitar tone experiments today on ‘Playback EP’! Some fascinating textures and novel wrangling of harmonics for those who like to hear ostensibly familiar sounds from an oblique angle. Buy/Stream here: https://markclifford.bandcamp.com/album/playback-ep A video for the first track ‘Blue-Fi I: “The basic tracks for ‘Playback’ were recorded 15 years ago during a four hour session at Playback Studios in Brighton, and with a resident engineer more accustomed to recording Eastern European orchestras than experimental guitar music. It was a time in my life when I needed to break some emotional glass and the intensity of the sound in the studio succeeded in doing that. Over the following weeks I played around with the stems at home largely using a GRM Tools plugin. The tracks were kind of shelved with the intention of eventually finishing them as an album but this was never fully realised.”
This new EP (more of a mini LP at 43 minutes) by Japan's Ametsub is just beautiful! He makes heavy use of the Mbira instrument as the title would suggest. Out now on Nothings66 Records. There's also a brilliant remix by Seefeel on here. You can grab it on CD from here: http://www.nothings66.com/n66ep001.html Digitally available on Amazon/Juno and probably others after the 7th of July. Tracklisting: 1. Mbr / Northbound 2.

Mark Clifford (Seefeel) & Scott Gordon's (Loops Haunt) collaborative project 'Oto Hiax' releases its eponymous, debut LP today on Editions Mego: Listen to track 'Eses Mitre' from the LP: Purchase 2xLP here: http://editionsmego.com/release/EMEGO-234 Purchase digitally here: https://editionsmego.bandcamp.com/album/s-t Editions Mego is proud to present the first full length release from Oto Hiax. Comprised of Mark Clifford (Seefeel) and Scott Gordon (Loops Haunt) ‘title’ follows on from last years acclaimed EP ‘One’. Embracing a series of sonic opposites ‘title’ employs electronic and concrete sound to construct a labyrinth of moods sliding from basic repetition to complex audio suites. The mood is such that the listener is advised to embrace the unexpected as unusual elements gently drift across the audio plane. Exquisitely executed, this is no foray into generic sound design but a rich and complex ruse whereby seemingly jarring sonic elements play out a subtle and harmonious bridge between a variety of musical styles and genres. Insh carries the kind of hallowed kraut comfort that only seasoned professionals can harness whereas Eses Mitre disorientates in the most enticing fashion. Oto Hiax have produced an album of exquisite detail and beauty. Now is their time.
Scott Gordon, otherwise known as 'Loops Haunt', and Seefeel frontman Mark Clifford have a new collab project called 'OTO HIAX'. Their debut EP will be out September 14th. Not sure what format or label though. I suppose we'll know soon enough. Here is a preview for the first EP (there will be 2 EPs released eventually): https://soundcloud.com/otohiax/ep-1-previews Tracklisting: 1: Roaming Fold 2: Migrator 3: Lark 4: Sleeplocks
