I am this close to declaring Motion Sickness of Time Travel the greatest musical act in the world today. I buy their old releases like they’re going to be crucial to the world’s survival in a post-apocalyptic landscape; even when Rachel’s (see how much I like this stuff! I’m using the singer’s first name! lol what’s it like there on the OUT SIDE of CULTURE) compositions aren’t up to her usual preposterous standards - like her tape on Old Frontiers, or her split with Imperial Topaz on Tranquility Tapes, or her self-titled 2XLP on Spectrum Spools (which REALLY owns), at least I’m supporting the project. (my vanity and self-satisfaction overfloweth into mine PBS tote bags of various vintages.)
it’s a little frustrating since physical MSoTT releases tend to be limited to the point of trolling on the artists’ behalf (fukkin nine copies released what the FUK), but literally all of her output is available online for listening for free on their Bandcamp (see link in header of thread), and unless you hate good music I hope to God you’re listening to it.
I freely admit that I am unequivocally the target audience this music has in mind - I just wish I could keep buying copies of Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom’s The Days of Mars but even I can’t justify it, although I may break down and find a second copy of the record just so I can frame the sleeve. except that MSoTT’s stuff tends to sound way more organic than Delia & Gavin’s, but it’s the same type of big, side-long celebrations of expansiveness and augh I just love it SO MUCH. why can’t all music be this good?
anyway this particular track was from way back in the day discovered via an ILX thread. they don’t sound like this very much anymore. but then again not many things sound like her music.
