Homeowner 3: New England Acoustics

Right at the end of December, a great label from Denmark called Metaphysical Circuits released my latest tape as Homeowner. Here's what they said:

Capping off a musically successful year for Joseph Bastardo (he of Bastian Void and the Moss Archive label, et al.), and gearing up for an equally awesome 2014, is this little, but many-branched wunderbaum.

Dig (into) the fertile multi-part suite that is the title track, and stay warm through the Winter (whenever your Winter is) with the luscious reverse side-r "Your Topiary Frame." Boreal sculptures, dream textures, intricate artifacts... animated tree rings or psychedelic circuitry?

The artist's own "forest synth" descriptor is especially accurate. Here, thus, another enchanting entry into our (unplanned but appreciated) environmental electronics series. "Homeowner 3" should appeal to fans of Guenter Schlienz's calmer but similarly minded "The Norman Tapes" (as well as, perhaps, our still available Jon Claudio and Vejgaard Ambient titles. Ahem.)

Tapes are available now. Limited to 50 copies! Grab one here!
