smellycaт - dearest

Smellycaт sniffing out sound tidbits and consummate moments in everyday life. The entire composition is inflated into a rotating sphere with small pinpricks allowing the notes to flow out. As each infinitely small sound porthole passes the listeners hearing spectrum, the mood and feel of dearest begins to amass. Beautifully sequenced in timing and flow, smellycaт works a special enchantment floating thoughts in a salt laden sea.

A double cassette emitting eroded beats from a flickering pop post nuclear landscape. The remains of civilization found in broken items and distant aspirations. Dearest embodies a sentimental connection to a phased out world. So chilled on the surface but revolving with a dense burning core, holding all thirty one of the tracks together. Smellycaт sniffing the rubble of cultures remains. Bringing treasures back with noble composure. Saying, "don't feel sad, the world has moved on, here are some beautiful memories we can share, hope this makes you a little better". Melancholy vibes sliced with a playful whimsy. Smellycaт is a wise creature.

Released on the Amek Collective label. Dearest came out in April of this year in an edition of thirty five. There are copies available from the label site and from the smellycaт bandcamp page. Lost in a Sea of Sound did another description for a Amek Collective cassette release titled Filament by Mytrip. This is available on vinyl now from the labels site.
