Urkas--Desert Shapes c34 (Skell 010)

This is Urkas' third release, and on it the duo of Russ Alderson (Xanthocephalus) and Mike Griffin (Parashi, Burnt Hills) continue to improvise dense, abstract soundscapes generated from bass, a variety of junk percussion, and modular synth. Within these pieces desolate areas expand and open up endlessly, only to suddenly contract and reveal themselves as labyrinths of mysterious design. Edition of 50, pro-dubbed. $7 ppd US, $8 rest of world. SOLD OUT. Image manipulation/design by Julie Watts.
