Compelled to create – or rather, extract – safer worlds from haunted hardware of the ‘80s and ‘90s, Sasha Renkas collaborates with vocalist Eline Makker to make escapist themes on the precipice of acid and adventure for Antenna’s debut 12″ on Beats In Space.
Primavera is a meditation on the sensitivity of spring. Far from a floral arrangement, Renkas and Makker engage the liminal space, a brief, bitter-sweet bloom between the endless summer and relentless winter.
Listen to Antenna’s new bloom, “Primavera May,” below:
Syrinx’s path veered from the dominant modes of ‘70s subculture, their version of chamber pop hybridized with wild, whimsical electronic experimentation charting new territory in the under and overground.
Formed by composer John Mills-Cockell after the dissolution of Intersystems, Syrinx’s two adventurous albums, Syrinx (Self-Titled) and Long Lost Relatives, endorsed the poetic potential of the avant-garde, subverting a turn of the ‘60s trend toward technological pageantry.
Tumblers From The Vault presents these two albums alongside the trio’s unheard music, revisiting the Syrinx story and sharing their memorable, mind-bending melodies.
