Volcanic Tongue Review

oMMM’s release on Alien Jams can now be found at the AMAZING Volcanic Tongue shop. David Keenan took the time to write this kind and thoughtful review,

 

“Debut release in an edition of 300 copies from this label run by Chloe Frieda of the Alien Jams radio show, dedicated to past>future electronic experimentation: oMMM is the brainchild of Edmund Davie and uses primitive electronics, four-track cassette recorder, tape work, synth and drum machine to generate the kind of lonely lunar satellites that combine the feel of early Asmus Tietchens with classic, spooked bedroom radiophonia and an eerie occult/galactic atmosphere that is somewhere between The Conet Project and Joe Meek’s I Hear A New World. Tracks read like NASA interceptions of punk primitive alien technologies tone-dialling 20th century receptors with squiggles of shortwave, early Industrial wasp soundings, brain-blotting loops and clunky hermetic drones underlining the whole scientific bedroom hobbyist appeal. Unmusical and mind-bendingly crude, this makes for the perfect combination of eccentric analogue experimentation and cold, austere Kluster/Conrad Schnitzler style dead dark space. A great debut, highly recommended.”

This edition of Alien Jams featured lots of great new music, including a couple tracks from the excellent Klara Lewis, as well as new Thought Broadcast. I also played an exclusive new track from oMMM, which Edmund recorded a couple weeks ago. Even though it’s very different from his Alien Jams release, all of his stuff is super! This one is named “Ghost Ride the Crib”…
