Puredigitalsilence - Circumfluence (2LP)
Mega-rarity from the Korean Ambient / Experimental band, Puredigitalsilence! First released in 1998 on a barely marketed and quickly forgotten 1000-run CD, this is some of the most mental, druggy music to ever see life in Korea. Taking the style of Swans, Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine as a starting point, PDS, formed in the fertile university neighbourhood of Hongdae in Seoul, branched into more experimental choices of sound layers and textures, incorporating elements of Drone, Ambient and Noise into intense, lengthy improvised jams. Analog electronics, reverb and delay-drenched atmospheric synth lines comprise the supporting cast of this mind-twisting soundscape, almost completely lost to the sands of time before being rescued by Daehan Electronics.
