- Housed inside a gatefold sleeve with extensive sleeve notes
Vinyl, 2×LPOut of stock
An absolutely otherworldly collection of out and out synth-heavy no wave experimentation from Michal Turtle, pressed up on deluxe double vinyl by Music From Memory!
Recorded between 1983 and 1985, the tracks on Phantoms of Dreamland burrow deep into Michal's only commercially released entry, the frightfully hard to get a hold of Music From The Living Room album, released on the short-lived but quietly influential Shout label.
Also, there are a wealth of unreleased, archival tracks that move between synth minimalism and balearic tropical structures that cross the DNA of producers and groups such as John Bender and early TG with the pop rooted sensibility of artists such as Mariah and Lena Platonos.
Phantoms of Dreamland is an LP of exceptional experimentation that refuses to be boxed into one particular genre, but shows a vast expansion and craving to expel sounds from all sections of a particularly well informed record shelf while placing a unique spin on each district explored, an LP to really loose yourself in and further proof that Music From Memory are one of the most crucial labels around in 2016.
