OUT NOW! TARZANA “ALIEN WILDLIFE ESTATE” LP
- SPENCER CLARK X JAN ANDERZÉN

Very excited to announce that the newest release from Pacific City Sound Visions, “Alien Wildlife Estate” by Tarzana, is out and shipping to your head now! A long time in the works, this LP documents the collaborative works of Pacific City don Spencer Clark (Monopoly Child Star Searchers, The Skaters) and Finnish artist Jan Anderzén (Kemialliset Ystävät, Tomutonttu).
 
“Alien Wildlife Estate” is a kulmination of both artists recording Pacific City Studios and finnishingoff the compositions in a “YOUR MY FAVORITE ALIEN penpal flare! The music is engaged as a Fruitopian vision of a rescattering of all elements within an International Airport to be presented as Audio exhibit! With songtitles like”DEEP OCEAN IBEX ARENA” and LI SHEN SU’S PEACOCK MANTIS SHRIMP REPERTOIRES” one can glare the “Up-To-The-Minute”synthetic textures as they coalesce with the impressionistic voices and sound effects of the Symbiotic relationship of thee Modern Airport with that of an Earth Alien ZOOLOGICAL GARDEN. Don’t hesitate to venture the link below for an audio example of these rather wild textual explanations…
 
Snag your copy at the UP online shop before it is too late. For whole sale/ bulk orders please hit up the man himself here: CLARKSR99@YAHOO.COM
 
Also Tarzana will be hitting the European road — “In honor of this new insect we travel by slime through Europe with the ensemble of Jan Anderzén, Spencer Clark and Flors Vanhoof from November 20th – December 6th, look below for Out Of Your Tentacles Tour 2015″

Ian Drennan Premier’s “Asclepias”, Flower of Love LP Out Now

Ian Drenna’s new album “Flower of Love” is out now!! In honor of it’s release we are very happy to reveal a track off the new album. Take a listen to Asclepias:
 

 
A collection of defamiliarized love songs, Flower of Love was composed using samples gathered from the intimate spaces Drennan inhabited while in the company of others. Thwarting the lone-artist model dictating so much electronic music production, Drennan construed Flower of Love through a process of opening and affirmation, sharing his process rather than stealing moments here and there to compose privately. Tonal sequences across Flower of Love service this approach less metaphorically than performatively, as the album’s practical context becomes just one element of Drennan’s immersion into unprecedented aural environments.
 
Ian’s new album is out now and can be found at the UP online shop, your local record store or favorite mail order site.

Our first taste of the 42-minute odyssey comes by way of the song “Chinese Wind”, which premiered via The Fader last week. “…Made up of layers of comforting sounds,” including, “…pastoral flutes, gooey guitars, recorded nuggets of actual human laughter, and the tender baritone of principal songwriter Luka Usmiani,” you can get your listen in below. Be sure to stay tuned for more King Cyst news coming soon!
