Com Truise & VVV ready their debut albums

05:34 PM

On July 4, Ghostly International and New Jersey’s Seth Haley alias Com Truise will bring you the recent space odyssey called Galactic Melt – as visualised on the above cover. And ‘odyssey’ is by no means a cliché here, since the album is Haley’s attempt to record a sci-fi bildungsroman or film score on the life and death human rebirth of his alter ego Truise, a lonesome robot lost in space. Listen to first album foretaste “Cathode Girls” below and download “Polyhurt” of the three-non-album-track-single Fairlight, Ghostly released last week already. German distribution is in the hands of !K7.

In other news, As we learnt from FACT, Texan producer Martin Clark alias VVV will soon (date’s still lacking) release his debut album on Scottish label Fortified Audio, which is run by Gordon Stewart and already put out his EP The Projects. The now full-length transatlantic collaboration got fittingly named Across the Sea. And since this is our first time mentioning this fine 2-step artist, you can find three from our present VVV favourites below (all not included on the album, which will be eight-track-strong). Also give “Linder Years” and “Remaining Seconds” a listen. A first teaser of the complete record can be heard here.
