Ambrosias Vol. 1 C76

Over the course of Basic House's vast debut, UK resident Stephen Bishop explores a myriad of abstract- and drone-oriented styles with perfect ease, from the stacked sheets of noise laid out on opener ABC Ambrosia to the ambient spatial studies making up the rest of the first side. Ambrosias takes even more unexpected turns on its second side, with album centerpiece Panasonium/Mastrioshka Brain using its all-too-short 17+ minutes to conclusively demonstrate that this is a very special debut indeed.

Pro-dubbed TDK SA high bias cassettes limited to 50 hand-assembled and hand-numbered copies.
