Press:

“Jesse Munro Johnson has been kicking out the hypnotically pulsating jams as Gulls for years now, but here, the founder of the experimental groove label Boomarm Nation unveiled a new four-piece live band, playing trance-y, dance-y, dubby space-funk built from congas, a stripped-down drum kit, sax and Johnson’s programmed beats (and occasional trumpet). It was the funkiest set I witnessed all weekend, and as someone who’d actually seen or heard much of lineup previously (I mean, it’s kind of my job), also the biggest surprise.”-  Matthew Singer – Music Editor / WIllamette Week.

fffFresh dust. from STRATEGY

….”NOISE TAPE REGGAE”….

A very nice new 7″ from Portland’s own STRATEGY .. (AKA) Paul Dickow.

This music was made using repurposed dusty old reggae mix tapes spliced into loops played back on a 4 track. Mixed live, and processed live using only the finest of analog equipment.

This record is a beautiful adventure of familiar old sounds filtered through a new lens. Dubby fuzzy layers, lots of delicious spring reverb, and some heavy bass. All are very present indeed.

The B side puts me into an unknowing transcendental heavy lidded state every time i listen..

try it at33rpm..? its nice at both.. always a plus!

The vinyl comes in a sealed plastic sleeve. very sexy, took me a week just to break the seal, it looks so nice.
