Long Distance Poison- Human Program UK LP Clear Vinyl Deep Distance
Next up on Deep Distance following quick fire sell outs of all it’s previous output this year comes the killer new full length from Brooklyn based Long Distance Poison. Following releases across esteemed US labels such as Foxy Digitalis, Ecstatic Peace and Steve Moore’s VCO, the band unleash “Human Program” -it’s debut full length for the UK- for Deep Distance in late July.
Their sound has been described as offering up “deeply sonorous, dense buzzing drones and psycho-active electronic materials. Somewhere between Acre, Phil Niblock, Expo 70, 3 Leafs and Popol Vuh with an obvious synthedelic-neoshamanic musical purpose”; as well as possessing “god-like genius” by Julian Cope!
"Long Distance Poison present an irresistible concoction of convergent psychedelic and analog electronic energies, everything from a love of nature, and Rothko-like visual aesthetics, to musical influences like Sky Records, John Carpenter soundtracks, minimalism, and a less-hyper Mother Mallard or post “Phaedra” Tangerine Dream. Also of note is the unusual male / female dynamic of the record, itself an unusual occurrence in modern electronic music.
With modular synthesizer systems and both contemporary and vintage analogue keyboard synthesizers, LDP uses random and pseudo-random clocking, gating, triggering and frequency sequences “that create the appearance of static and unified 'songs' from a series of random, chance, intuitive events bound by various contexts.”
A wonderful LP (recorded by Brendon Anderegg of Mountains) and released as a clear vinyl pressing of 300 late July, the set offers up a killer insight and introduction to this increasingly acclaimed band and is destined like output from both artist and label here to sell out rapid style.
