Premiere: Long Distance Poison – “A Passage Above”

Posted by on June 11, 2013

Earlier this year, Brooklyn synth trio Long Distance Poison released their first remix LP, Gliese Translations, which saw Steve Moore (Zombi, Lovelock) and Shawn Parke add kosmische disco beats to their sound in very different ways, while Drew McDowell (Coil, Psychic TV) did more of a dark, hypnotic distorted organ mantra. The LP also comes with a DVD including 2 films by Matthew Caron and Rebecca Gaffney, one for “The Three Voices Of Tawuse Melek” (from their Constellation Tatsu cassette Ideological State Apparatus) and the video shown above, for new song “A Passage Above”. While “The Three Voices” is more acid-washed and nature-based, “A Passage Above” is a bit more kaleidoscopic, dystopian, and industrial. Gliese Translations can be purchased from Fin Records.
