robedoor / yellow swans Split (7", £8.25)label: Arbor
It's about time that two of the West Coast's best units share a slab of vinyl together. This is an epic coupling. LA's ROBEDOOR (an obvious Arbor favorite) present what might be their best work yet, "Tremor Deliverance." Synths and subdued vocals weave together into an ornamental sound tapestry with heavy Middle Eastern influence. Total satyagraha. Portland's YELLOW SWANS are constantly touring (just now embarking on a multi-month European jaunt) and spreading the word of sonic liberation. Their untitled piece is a wall of sound, totally alive and growing, infinitely large. In an edition of 500 copies with printed labels and silkscreened art by SHAWN REED of RACCOO-OO-OON.
