Aaron David Ross. Brooklyn Resident, multimedia artist, and one half of Giallo-crusaders Gatekeeper (Merok) is here as ADR for this first full-presentation from recorded music establishment- Public Information.

Solitary Pursuits: an 8 track mini LP, a burning head-trip into electronic swamplands packed with science-fiction sonics. This a record dredged from the heart of ADR’s NYC studio, buzzing analogue fissures erupting off each cut.

Track 1… “Codex” a deep Korg portrait in melancholia that’s soon subsumed by the slo-motion Drexciyan swoon of “Jupiter Rising” just around the corner, a beautiful half-lost notion of the Arabesque, distant echoes which haunt much of PUBINF001. In “Univox”, “Sands of Time”, “Solitary Pursuits” we have three heartbreaking miniatures, an alien-complexity in melody, tone and tuning, like Michel-Jarre, Vangelis, Schulze astray in darkest Istanbul, with nothing but a solitary synth under their frayed wings.

Then suddenly onto the B, a sun-burst splash of “Sidewinder” recalls a dusty Kleer LP getting sucked into some Dam-Funk-y cassette vacuum whilst the Library rush (think 70’s Parry, De Wolfe, Bruton) of “Mercury Retrograde” sizzles in noise.

Eight tracks of compelling synthronics, concise, strange Popular-Musik for a New-Age.
