Hi everyone,
 
Here’s what we have planned this week:
 
This week's Inside and Outside track is a one-two punch of new music from the experimental tape label Phinery.
 
On Friday's Inside Track, it's the latest from Portland-based musician Pulse Emitter (a.k.a. Daryl Groetsch), Through the Portal. Groetsch has been releasing (emanating?) as Pulse Emitter since 2004. Composed using only synthesizer and found sound, Through the Portal gives us playful, deep-ass, new age synth pieces with ecological sci-fi song titles. It made our review feel like "an RPG avatar, a digital Adam, composed of like 5 pixels, drifting on a raft through a 16-bit hicolor estuary." Maybe you'll pick up similar vibes? Tune in and find out.
 
Monday's Outside Track is Redundancy Suite, the new album from G.S. Sultan (a.k.a. Roy Warner). Following his first two releases on Umor Rex and Orange Milk, Redundancy Suite sees the artist heading down experimental but enjoyable paths, creating a warbling, shiny 3D chaos of synths that bring to mind the early synth greats of the 60s and 70s.

Hi all,
 
Here’s what we have coming up this week:
 
Tonight's Inside Track is a reissue of the 1986 collaboration between Mexico-based musicians Jorge Reyes and Antonio Zepeda, A La Izquierda Del Colibrí. Drawing on contemporary electronics and pre-Hispanic musical traditions, this record features the constant murmurings of el idioma otomí (indigenous language to Mexico), trance percussion, flutes, and natural sounds of insects and water. It's a prophetic, mysterious, and unrelenting record that's easy to get lost in.
 
Monday's Outside Track will be the self-titled debut from Israeli skronk-rockers Sall Hardali. Featuring noisy, punky, improvisation, the five musicians on the album deliver a fusion of sounds and ideas that should appeal to fans of Guerrilla Toss and Fire! Orchestra alike.
