Assembled by hand, one copy at a time, in the White Pillar Workshop. A white 5" recordable disc, printed and duplicated via an Imation D20, held inside a sturdy white paperboard jacket, with custom purple text decals on the front and back cover. Ships in a clear plastic cast polypropylene sleeve, with a flap on the back side, to keep your sonic artifact dust and moisture-free. Also contains the disc-exclusive bonus track A LATE ONE WHILE SHE'S AWAKE (18:21), featuring guest bassist Casio Commander.
Includes unlimited streaming of Blue Machine
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
AQV returns with a second volume of bedroom electronics, following the first-ever Bedroom Compost release back in 2011. Blue Machine is a textured and mid-fi trip through an aquatic realm, wedged somewhere between the ending sequence from Splash and King Trident's kingdom in The Little Mermaid. Equal parts VHS defocus and analog synthesizer improvisation, Blue Machine conjures up waves and waves of sonic seawater to swim around in, in this ACID SUMMER. Performed live on equipment that all had the color blue present somewhere on its enclosure, with zero computers or overdubs present, direct to a fuzzy cassette tape on an old JVC deck.
Additionally, the limited edition CD-R comes with a special 18-minute bonus track, "A Late One While She's Awake", which features (gasp!) psychedelic electric guitar playing and three-string bass playing by guest Plastician Casio Commander.
released July 9, 2019

Astonishingly good electronic tunes for a tenner and for a good cause. As well as titans 808 State, Autechre, Plaid, B12, etc... the lesser known artists shine. Get and enjoy! Played Quandary Wand at my wedding after Halcyon by Orbital. :) Egg Wizard
