Excellent debut solo album from one of my favourite songwriters / soundmakers (Simon of Sekiden, Undead Apes). A long time coming but absolutely worth a listen or 10.
Favorite track: On and Off.
Spinning uniformly into modulations of subtractive synthesis alights this debut hotmagnets album - Omega Chemicals. With the previous band Undead Apes winding down and the tinnitus winding up Simon started to take the electronic projects/experiments more seriously -
“...something I could do musically without the irreversible field loss of my hearing. This is just over two years worth of honing and whittling down what were sometimes up to 20 minute long experimental noises into something that resembles “songs”. Please enjoy these sounds from the Magic Mile".
These positive affirmations for positive people emerge through gameboy modulations and binary repetitions transmuted by the assisted affectations of Seja Vogel, Ben Ely (regurgitator), George Browning (Velociraptor, Babaganouj) and wonderfully winding Saxophone by Sandra Selig (Primitive Motion).
