      Faster Circuits, the expansive and skewed psych-pop project helmed by longtime Athens, GA scene-crux Derek Almstead, drops its first album this June 25th, 2013 on Cloud Recordings.
      Tunes of Glory flexes the sonic and attitudinal complexity Derek developed as a key contributing musician and oft-used engineer for vaunted Athens-centric mainstays The Olivia Tremor Control, of
      Montreal, The Glands, Elf Power, Vic Chesnutt, Circulatory System and a multitude of others too varied to list; truly, this new record represents a collision of patented Athenian melodic chops, a
      generous and lyrical compositional approach, and a lived-in experimental consciousness that flashes combustible bits of avant-jazz, modern minimalism and exuberant paint-peeling guitar skree.
      Recorded over a period of years, Tunes of Glory enlists a bevy of old friends and collaborators and, thusly, exudes the warmth and familiarity you'd expect thereof. Guided by Almstead's persistent,
      inclusive vision, however, the album cultivates a focused chiaroscuro ambiance not dissimilar to Eno's teeth-bearing early forays into 1970's rock, Stereolab's beautiful and melodic extensions of Krautrock's longform promise and, finally, Faust's joyous song-based subversions of pop structures into something else altogether. For fans of the aforementioned as well as S.F. Sorrow-era Pretty Things, Smog, Icy Demons, and M Coast.

      no surprise, but this is a great sounding album! i've been listening on spotify, but unfortunately the "Non Dynamic Stroller" track is jacked and never plays.

      Thank you!

      I'm looking into the problem with "Non Dynamic Stroller". I think Secretly Canadian handles uploads to Spotify so hopefully they can fix it.

      I do want to put it out on vinyl someday, but it might see a cassette release much sooner!

      Channelfan,
      John brought it up to the Secretly Canadian folks, maybe it's fixed now?
