Published Jan 21, 2014Vancouver label More Than Human has been building up a catalogue of electronic and experimental releases, and now the ever-growing imprint has announced its latest release. Time Attendant's Treacherous Orb EP will be out on January 31.
For the unfamiliar, Time Attendant is the alias of London, UK's Paul Snowdon. Most of the six-song EP is made up of instrumental electronic tracks that a press release describes as "soundscapes invoking macrocosmic awe and microscopic terror." British surrealist poet Dolly Dolly makes a spoken word appearance on "The Hexapod Star Shuffle."
At the bottom of this page, check out a video for the track "Iridium Watcher." The EP is being pressed on 150-gram vinyl in a run of 300 hand-numbered copies. It's available to pre-order here.
The is the label's fourth 12-inch EP; next up is an release from kosmische veteran Dieter Moebius of Cluster and Harmonia. The label's website specifies that it will be an "archival recording."
More Than Human will celebrate its first four releases with a Vancouver show at Red Gate (855 East Hastings) on January 31. There will be live performances from the Passenger, Plays:four, Kensington Gore and Common Vernacular. It also promises, "Our journey together will be accompanied by weird ﬁlms of pagan celebrations, lost landscapes and public information ﬁlms highlighting the very real dangers of an over-polished ﬂoor." Tickets are $10.
