Published May 27, 2013Rambutan has released a string of CD-Rs, cassettes and singles over the years, but the prolific Upstate New York experimentalist also known as Eric Hardiman has never put out a proper LP. That will change on June 3 when he drops Inverted Summer through Fabrica Records.
Hardiman, who also plays in Century Plants and Burnt Hills, draws on influences including noise, dub, psych, drone, minimalism, and musique concrete. The album reportedly showcases his talents both in improvisation and structure.
A press release describes the record like this: "Utilizing various electronics, synthesizers, tapes, guitar, and bass, Inverted Summer is a sprawling, wide-angle piece of work, yielding deep zones of textural soundscaping that can soothe and unsettle in equal measure."
For a taste of this, check out the droning mood piece "Topology" and the quirkier "Outside the Horizon" below.
Inverted Summer will be available in a run of 300 black vinyl records which come with a download code. The album has a listing on Fabrica's online store, but pre-orders are not yet available.
