Los Angeles musicians Erik Tokle and David J Dowling (There is No Teenage Love) create sonic soundscapes through improvisation and live looping, manipulating guitars beyond recognition and dispensing with conventions of structure in favor of a post-modern, abstract and painterly approach to composition.
it’s been about 10 months since we first proclaimed this album ‘finished’. 9 months ago we excised half of that ‘finished’ material, remixed the remaining half, recorded fresh tracks and completely transformed the entire collection. we aim to have this work in your hands very soon. delivery times for vinyl records are currently outrageous - but we hope to make the digital experience available soon. much love - david & erik.
new album VERY close to complete. we still need to press the lovely VINYL RECORDS, which will take some time. we’re very proud of the new music and excited to share it with you.
Just a small diversion today to test out the new BOSS GP-10, which seems to be a lovely, compact successor to the Roland VG-99 and a more guitar-modeling focused little brother to the Roland GR-55. The guitar modeling sounds quite nice (a bit more lively than the VG-99) and the compact footprint and various control switches/jacks are a bonus. It’s a bit early to tell but this might put my VG-99 on the auction block. We shall see.
after much delay. #LAHEX is on the road to completion. your patience appreciated. #thereisnoteenagelove #sophomorealbum #ambient #losangeles
LAHEX is ‘in the can’. We’re off to the mastering races now. Keep your eyes and ears peeled. <3
