Kosmische! & then some... LMYE pin-up Xela & new name in these parts (though you've doubtless been down with them/her/it since way back when) Analog Concept lead Air Rings Vol. 2, a stirring, sprawling, spurting new synthtopian quartet on Digitalis. On limited edition (125!) cassette, naturally...
Digitalis' commentary is too inspired (the drone-zone rabbit hole especially) not to highlight: "xela buries the grimness of recent efforts and goes positively cosmic, layering an endless array of synths into a beautiful, cacaphonous mess. matt carlson channels rainbow-era riley and blasts off from there, heading deeper into the drone-zone rabbit hole. cliffsides camps out mid-80s and arpeggiates laser beams through an 8-bit dream arena. and analog concept? russian cosmonauts can only dream of these fucking stars."
Oh, & bring on Kind of Blå - the label's forthcoming Xela + Svarte Greiner/Keith Fullerton Whitman split LP!

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
