hand-crafted by iron filings and sellotape, in association with raindrop watchers, the glorious, ultra-limited second edition cd version of the album comes in a high quality envelope, printed with the album artwork, and containing the cd itself in a high-quality sleeve, along with lyric sheets, credit sheet, a statement of intent, tracklisting, schematics of obsolete machinery, a page from a classic work of philosophy and an iron filings and sellotape sticker.
Includes unlimited streaming of Amidst the Grease and Chaos
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Finally, after ten years in production, the deeply unsettling Iron Filings and Sellotape release is at last upon us. Twenty tracks taking us on a psychedelic voyage within the geopolitical world through a series of tape experiments, lo-fi beats, mournful passages and darkly disturbing noise-fields.
Iron Filings and Sellotape is a collective made up of persons unknown, centred around the concept of producing works of music, film and literature with exclusively found elements and obsolete technologies. Field recordings, tape noise, vinyl crackle, mixed in with processed loops, psychedelic melodic spirals, rumbling bass, lo-fi drum-sets, dialogue from historic recordings, and occasionally the voice of jamesreindeer, contributing lyrics penned through a most hallucinogenic filter of the geopolitical sphere.
"...all materials contained in this release were recorded and manipulated with obsolete technology and without the aid of any sequencing software..."
