about

The latest in a series of remastered archive releases on Fonolith from Neil Scrivin (aka Phono Ghosts and Meatbingo).

Recorded during the winter nights of late 2004, ‘Stars and Rumours of Stars’ explores the duality of inner and outer space by way of digital soundscapes, reverb-heavy textures and crunchy percussive elements. From the chilly, wind-swept ambience of ‘Skywatch’ to the interstellar rush of ‘Omni Voyager’ and cyclical hypnotic groove of ‘The Power of the Spiral’, SAROS illustrates a moonlit meandering into darkened woods for encounters at the interstices between worlds.

Previously unreleased, freshly remastered and available for the first time on ‘twilight blue’ full-face printed cassette tape in black library case.

"It's an ambient delight, flitting from the playful chaos of 'Omni Voyager' to the intergalactic whine of the title track ... this is one to get your mitts on." Fin Milligan - Electronic Sound

"... nods to sci-fi-inflected electro, while simultaneously sitting in a sort of underexplored no man’s land between industrial drama and ambient sensitivity. The album pivots on the shrouded of ‘The Power Of The Spiral’, wherein a simple, haunting melody gives the piece a mesmerising quality caught perpetually in tension with slowed-down beats and a nagging bass motif." Mat Smith - furtherdot.com
