Happy to have a handful of distribution copies of Ether, the haunting electric guitar drone/minimalist tome by Oscillation member Demian Castellanos. Here's what Cardinal Fuzz has to say about this:
Cardinal Fuzz and Out Of Phase Frequencies are proud to announce a new release by Demian Castellanos of ambient and otherworldly music. The album is released on Black Vinyl in an edition of 250 and comes in a sumptuous Metallic Gold screen printed sleeve with full colour insert. Demian Castellanos is best known as the man behind the London psyche rock outfit The Oscillation.
Presented here is more fruits of Demian's obsession for the infinite possibilities offered by an electric guitar and 12 string acoustic guitar, some effects pedals (delay, fuzz, tremolo, phaser and flanger) and a 4 track Tascam Porta 3. Sharing touchstones with Pete Kember's Soul Kiss Glide Divine and Kevin Shields sonic explorations, Demian has provided an aural equivalent of Brion Gysin's Dream Machine. Like the Dream Machine, this music is best listened to with eyes closed so that listeners may experience increasingly bright and complex patterns of colour behind closed eyelids during which you may enter a hypnagogic state (apologies if you are about to enter such state and have to turn over the record).
Recorded in Cambridge 1995 Demian returned to the recordings in the winter of 2015 where the tapes were transferred and mixed at Xibalba Studios.
