Chad VanGaalen & Seth Smith 'Seed of Dorzon' (album stream)
Calgary's Chad VanGaalen and Halifax's Seth Smith (of Dog Day) are indulging their exploratory sides this month by teaming up for an album called Seed of Dorzon. Ahead of the peculiar album's September 18 release on Fundog Records, the entire thing can be streamed now.

The half-hour album consists of just two epic-length tracks. This project has been referred to in press materials as "experimental techno," although the emphasis is definitely on the first half of that description rather than the second. Both tracks are sprawling electronic collages of clanks, electronic whirrs, solemn tones and jarring, unsettling weirdness. The beat-boosted "Part II" eventually settles into a something resembling a groove, but this definitely isn't the kind of music that will get partiers dancing at the club.
