7-inch single on Ketchup Cavern
and self released 3-inch cdr, 2008
The same day I bought a second-hand Boss Dr. Sampler I connected my guitar to it and recorded the basic material for these two 4-minute tracks. Less drone, more composed. A bit like my Huis EP I guess, that's (partly) why the title hints to that. It's Machinefabriek's more playful side. This 7-inch was released by the wonderful new Canadian label Ketchup Cavern.
Available in digital format
7-inch and cdr sold out
This new single features a single track spread out over two side, a gorgeously minimal guitar workout that reminds us of another aQ fave, Part Timer, with it's sleep guitar figures, wreathed in digital glitch, bits of crackle and streaks of hiss, every now and then a thick distorted guitar surfaces, only to drift off again, leaving lots of space for that lonely guitar to drift through. Stuttery, skipping, sudden moments of near silence, but all peppered throughout a slowly unfurling expanse of warbly woozy fractured folk, soft and pretty, spacious and minimal, the glitchiness mostly adding texture, rarely interrupting the song's dreamy drift.
