Debut LP from this new Philadelphia four-piece whose members include Siltbreeze, Blackest Ever Black, & Kashual Plastik alumni. With one sought-after tape behind them the band attempt a surreal approximation of nice music.

Their general merriment and creative fervour was captured in recordings over a few chance family dinners and channelled through a selection of poorly tuned instruments and detritus.

Songs collapsing into abstraction, or vagueness uniting in melody, Sift captures the moment between one thing ending and another beginning. Teen girlfriends mumbled bedroom jams striking the secret chord. Alchemy from the ashes. The sound of ideas and ideals.

Although conceptually akin to fellow Philadelphian Sun Ra’s Strange Strings, Sift likens to sounds from the early 4AD catalogue, Flying Nun's slowest hitmakers, or Förlag För Fri Musik's stock-in-trade.

Presented on black vinyl in a printed disco bag with an A4 riso insert & obi band.
