01 : LPs, noisy vagabond

transient – future jazz played underwater [nvr010] mp3

Release Text:
A nice laid-back collection of lofi “trip-hopish” tracks. I made an effort not to get too complicated or involved in any of the tracks, although some tend to slip into more “idm-ish” territories. A collection of quick-trackin’ jammz. My personal favorites on this release are “material malfunktion”,”cute people & god”, “metal chews”, “liquid.sudz.detergent”, & “take the axe & cut it down”.
Released as low press CDr in 2002 by noisyvagabond. Re-released as mp3 in 2004.
