FH024 Oxykitten – Octagonal Wax

octagonal wax, oxykitten, field hymns, cassette

RIYL: an American Yellow Magic Orchestra, interstitial analog beats, a knack for being on the western front of awesome

Like being caught in a shadow world where the lights of the cosmos are the dreams of a former child actor, forever caught in a low blaze of the dappled half-light of disco balls and jellied stage lights of her youth – now moist night club denizen sway in ecstatic unison as if all were caught in light undersea current as it wraps and writhes slowly around their forgotten bodies as the fever dreams reset and play again and again  behind upward tilted and milky smiling eyes…

Octagonal Wax is analog synth-pop instrumentals from an indeterminate era & more lighthearted than dark, though sometime the despair nibbles around the edges…

(Oxykitten is Wayne Longer of Portland, OR)
