Evan Caminiti’s Dust Editions label has been quiet over the last couple of years, since about the time he released his last album Meridian, but the imprint is cranking back up for his follow-up to that acid bath of electro-acoustic fallout. The first track from the upcoming, Toxic City Music, is bubbling under with the crackle of static electricity, gently nudging and creeping its way towards the sound of fried synapses. The album is built from an array of field recordings captured in Caminiti’s now home of NYC, in fact “Toxic Tape” pulls sounds from the artist’s own kitchen sink, flipping one’s environment into a backdrop of noise and squelch in the best Matmos tradition. Its also a return to Caminiti utilizing guitar under his given name, though the instrument is buried deep below layers of crust and crackle. The album features sympathetic souls Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Rafael Anton Irisarri, notable names if any and finds its way out in early March.
