Brian Lavelle / Nova Scotian Arms – Split


Tranquility Tapes‘ latest batch of splits is the gift that keeps on giving. Featuring incredible sides from the likes of Calypso Hum top-dog Carter Mullin’s Reedbeds project, Montreal guitar/synth warlocks Sundrips, and both members of Afterlife, these tapes are each wholly essential releases worthy of endless replaying. But the standout remains, without a doubt, this epic from UK veteran Brian Lavelle and ZE mainstay Nova Scotian Arms. Lavelle’s side is a mind-bending journey through astral hypnotism and underwater chimes- a beautiful late night sound explosion. And then there’s the Nova Scotian Arms side, which comes about as close as ambient synth has ever gotten to free-form jazz: the kind of music from which subgenres are born. Head over to Discriminate now and be sure to grab whatever you can from this batch. Excellent stuff.
