Collision/ Detection v1

Psychological Strategy Board’s next release will be  a 4 track EP through our comrades Front & Follow on Monday 27th February.

This is the first volume in a mammoth project evolving over 2012. I’m going to put down some thoughts about the EP in the next 2 weeks or so, but in the meantime here’s the press release which breaks down the concept behind this awesome sonic adventure:

Front & Follow is delighted to announce our second experimental audio project from Long Division with Remainders (LDWR),following on from the success of ’14 Versions of the same EP’. LDWR’s second project, titled ‘Collision/Detection’, sees invited artists submit audio clips into a central pot, which is then distributed around the group and others to do with as they see fit, resulting in a series of digital EPs released across the year.
The project will feature new and exclusive releases from a host of artists including Sone Institute, Hong Kong in the 60s, Isnaj Dui, The Doomed Bird of Providence, Kemper Norton, BLK Tag (BLK w/BEAR & Tag Cloud), The Lord and West Norwood Cassette Library.

Our first EP comes from the mighty Psychological Strategy Board, released on Monday 27th February.

Psychological Strategy Board is the work of radio broadcaster, event curator and now record label chief Jonny Mugwump (Exotic Pylon) and painter and musician Paul Snowdon (Time Attendant). This particular collision took place in their basement lair in the long hours of a grey London morn; this being typical of the pair’s working methods, with the fostering of an incubated intensity. The resultant EP asserts itself through meaty synth sounds, weaving the samples with tones of urgency and a brooding Lynchian menace throughout. This dug-in approach has also produced their recent excellent mix Industry, what Industry? for fellow ‘heightened curators’ Pontone and an extraordinary reimagining of the Doomed Bird of Providence’s Fedicia Exine for Front and Follow, entitled Cloud in the shape of Klaus Schulze (live).

To accompany each EP, artwork will be created by Paul Loudon, responsible for the stunning artwork on The Doomed Bird of Providence’s debut album Will Ever Pray.
