about

“A mechanical ghost in the corner of our room, The Electric Capablanca spins spectres, shades and sonics while nobody looks.

Lifestyle product for a Dolce Vita dreamer, the device – abandoned by one careless owner – now dreams up probable chaos.”

Released September 2019, enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

Turn the dials to creak splinters of 70s Italian midi classical (Venosta, Musci), imagined mitteleuropa ambient (Froese, Popol Vuh) and spiritual mathematics from the old new world (Spiegel, Hassell, Riley).

"excellent and intriguing" - Nick Luscombe

"a profound collection of delicate soundscapes and intriguing melodies scattered playfully across an open canvas" - Ransom Note

"an anarchic dialogue between soul and circuitry, yielding fractal wonders which glimmer in long-forgotten recesses" - If Only

"the blessed matrimony of SWIMS and Kit Records spawns this enigmatic beauty ... hitting a mark of toytronica and pastoral charm somewhere between Isan, Cluster, Laurie Spiegel or Werkbund" - Boomkat

"pastoral landscapes, innocent lullabies and day dreaming ... this collection is a spellbinding one" - Juno

"a mysterious series of curious, whimsical #electronic vignettes, marbled with cinematic flourishes & machine shrouded emotional resonance" - The Slow Music Movement

"simply stunning!" - Picadilly Records
