    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.

    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!

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