Abandoned Footwear: 108 Trees LP

This is the debut LP by Abandoned Footwear, a project from Oakland which has been playing live for several years now. Its two members are Michael Buchanan of space-industrial-drone collective Nommo Ogo and Jay Fields, best known as breakcore/acid/IDM producer Exillon. This project is somewhere in between the two. Very spacious and ethereal, with chilly, foggy synths over steadily pumping beats. “Song 3” is caustic and uncomfortable, like alien probing set to a beat. “Song 4” is slower and less propulsive, and a whole lot more mournful, feeling like a tearful observance of a dying world. “Song 6” has a tiny bit more of a pulse to it, but otherwise explore similar terrain. A really exceptional EP of thoughtful, non-club techno.
