Protovulcan: Psychic Pinball tape

Sinister madness conjured from several vintage synths, hyperactive drumming, and trusty old vocoders. Synth-punk (or -prog, or -psych) made by robots whose main desire is to crush all the puny humans. Think the center of a Venn diagram between Servotron and Black Moth Super Rainbow. It’s definitely not as hazy as the latter, but there’s far more of a groove to it than the former. It’s pretty dystopian, but also kind of funky at points (see “Waking Up Dinosaurs”). “Celestial Slingshot” will make you feel trapped in a satellite hurdling across the galaxy as far from Earth as possible, and it’ll be supremely exciting. Oscillator Bug and Odd Nosdam conclude the tape with some dramatic remixes.
