Thoughts on Air – “Organ of Youth/Summer Sizzle”
Hamilton, Ontario’s Thoughts on Air, whose tape, Paleo Sails was one of my favorites earlier this year, is satiating the world’s need for ToA with a crazy box set. This video was released to accompany the box set, entitled Random Tandem. It comes with a myriad of sounds and an art book, among some other things, so check it out.
From Old Frontiers:
Old Frontiers is extremely thrilled to offer this explosive package of colours and sounds from Hamilton’s own Thoughts on Air/Scott Johnson. Where to begin? How about with 100 minutes of blissful bedroom gems? The tracks range from fuzzed-outer space psychedelia to scuzzy love songs to prime examples of Scott’s signature shimmery-sparkling guitar sound and everything in between.
In keeping with the concept of randomness, included is a twelve page art-book of pieces made by Scott & Sean on a colour photocopier using a technique of blending images by feeding the paper back through the machine: a unique process with fortuitous results.
You can pick up this radical box-set on the Old Frontiers website.
