Initially devoted to promoting the local scene and its surroundings via free digital releases, Dublin-based outlet First Second Label finally turned into a proper international and vinyl venture this year, kicking things off with a debut EP courtesy of Isaiah Tapes boss Bessiekat a couple of months ago.
After contributing a track to Jungle Gym’s ‘Black Summer Tape‘ last year, Vancouver duo Minimal Violence step up with their debut ‘Untitled‘ EP – an hypnotic four-track drift across static-filled swamps and post-industrial landscapes. Head in the clouds, feet to the ground.
Today we’re pleased to stream the sensuous ‘Under The Sign Of Saturn‘, a killer halftone churner dipped in a dynamic pool of druggy, tape-saturated layers. Check that roaring blaze of debonair toms and hi-hats bursting over a light-hearted fluttering groove, whilst muted vocals keep sinking the track into a washed-out daydream. Exquisite.
Untitled EP is released via First Second Label on June 17th, order a vinyl copy from Juno.
