London-based Edmund Davie credits himself with the foundation of “bedcore” – you’ll find the definition of it when (and if) you go to his Bandcamp page. He had an album that dropped almost ten years ago, and we just now seem to be hearing from the man again (correct me if I’m wrong). If you look to Davie’s Soundcloud page, you can find that he’s put up tracks within that time span and many of them are even free to download. Davie crafts a woozy brand of musique concr√®te, giving us a product that doesn’t sound like it’s of this earth. This would fit perfectly on a blank tape you’d find in the middle of the woods in Burkittsville while filming a documentary about a certain someone with two other people in the fateful year of 1994. You think something, or someone, is out there watching among the growth but you don’t really have anything to go on. There’s some wicker men among the branches, but where is there not? You just start listening to this to decipher why it’s there. New age nods are here too, with song names involving a prism and pyramids. Check out¬†Parallel Lines Converge¬†below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Edmund Davie's oMMM project ventures yet deeper into the murky realms of cassette experimentation, with his latest release, Parallel Lines Converge. Cassette collage and drum machine rhythms are channeled through a trusty four track, sounds that seem to belong to some distant cosmological order. Noise synths and casiotone are drenched in tape hiss, rising to intoxicating proportions, adding yet another hazy veil to oMMM's work. With as much attention paid to eerily buzzing soundscapes as overloaded drum sequences, Parallel Lines Converge navigates a vast expanse of sonic no-man's land, all the while teetering on the brink of madness.
Includes immediate download of 6-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
