Background: While working on Do Androids Dream of a White Noise Christmas? Volume 3, I found several songs that I really liked, but that just didn’t fit with the tone that had previously been established with Volumes 1 & 2. These songs were either too long, too noisy or too chaotic. I would describe them as dark ambient, industrial ambient, harsh electro industrial, rhythmic noise or experimental. So I made another playlist over the course of a couple of days.
Whew, finally! I’ve concluded my task of uploading all our releases to Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s Bandcamp store! And to celebrate, I’ve switched all the prices to $2. Yes! Just $2 a download — of course, you can give more if you think the album is worth it. It’s our 2-day $2 download celebration. Many of the albums are deluxe, with extra material (for example, Halo Star includes a second disc of live tracks). The $2 price includes all studio albums and eps (plus my solo work and most collaborations). The celebration runs through midnight-ish, Tuesday December 2nd.
The album continues in the “electronic mood-music” tradition established by Sam on the PROJEKT ELECTRONIC AMERIKA cassettes, with the added intriques of the drum-computer, exploring the realms of electronic music that the critics have compared to Tangerine Dream, O.M.D. and Brian Eno.
