Two great new releases on Static Caravan. Both on 7″ Vinyl, both brilliant! The first is by New York artist Cheval Sombre (Christopher Porpora). The title track I Found It Not So is a dark moody affair with echoing guitars and breathy vocals. Produced by Sonic Boom. Sleeve by Ben Javens.

The other release Two Systems, a split EP by Wrangler and Scanner features two songs each composed entirely on one vintage analog synthesizer. It comes as a companion piece to the soon to be released CD by Benge (one half of Wrangler) Twenty Systems which charts the developmet of synthesizers over a twenty year period between 1968 – 1988. Both songs on this release are solid beat driven electronic numbers and the vinyl has the added bonus of being a picture disc which shows a close up photo of the instruments used in the recordings. Essential purchases! 5/5.
