Published Jun 25, 2013Newly minted Vancouver tape label 1080p dropped its first release just last week, and now it's already back with another. Tings & Savage's Brain Foam is available now.
Tings & Savage is a collaboration between Melbourne producer Roland Tings (a.k.a. Rohan Newman) and his friend Nathan Savage, who teamed up in mid-2012 in Berlin. The pair reportedly experimented for 11 hours a day, resulting in ambient electronic improvisations.
The band said in a statement, "I think part of being in a place like Berlin — you're constantly surrounded by electronic music, mostly in pretty rigid formats — so we were just experimenting to see what would happen when we pushed the formats out a bit further. Not that we are claiming we broke any new ground — this is the kind of thing that every artist does in one way or another — filtering ideas that they have 'encountered' through their experiences and presenting their take or their explanation or whatever."
Brain Foam consists of four raw tracks. A press release explains, "For Rohan and Nathan, it's about flowing sounds; bright pulsing textures but also keeping a strong rhythmic core, like the hazy shells of the tracks playing in the club the night before being filled up again with sun and smoke."
