Released: 10th Jun 2016

out of stock


the 1st proper release from the Brighton faves whose music is never in a hurry to get anywhere - their restraint meaning the joy is as much in the journey as the destination.

recalling variously blanck mass, emeralds, tim hecker or factory floor, they are Named after an early-80’s brand of personal computer, so it's fitting that the EP is splendidly housed in a 5,25’’ floppy disc. Formed in 2013, Merlin Tonto (Owen Thomas (electronics), Miles Boyd (bass) & Steffan Eliades (drums) combine a patient, ever building, subliminal connection in the rhythm section with Owen's virtuoso manipulation of electronics & visual interpretations of the band's otherworldly sounds. these guys are awesome live & we're thrilled to be able to listen to them on headphones now too.
