Modern Malaise

A 10 track detroit/u.s. techno ep (41m 8s) — released August 18th 2014 on No Corner

Dusty guitar pedals, drum machines and reconditioned synthesizers uitilized by the mysterious 'Lily' in what we can only describe as 40 mins of cyberpunk techno on cassette.

Originally released on C40 Cassette to critical acclaim, we felt this piece deserved to reach a wider audience and to be presented on a more dj-friendly format - 'Lily - Modern Malaise' is now reissued and remastered to it's full glory on 180g 12" vinyl.
