'Microvictories' by Brassica // TTRCD002
Microvictories offers a glimpse into the restlessly creative head of London-based musician Michael Anthony Wright. From the blissful summer-sky guitars and almost-pop of Conveyor Belt (On The Way In), to the dense percussive meltdown of Flams via the murky and hypnotic atmospherics of The First Education (September 1985) and on to the frenzied bass and pulsating electronics of Welcome (A Piss In The River), Brassica leads you through a richly diverse sonic landscape.
Drawing from a wide range of genres, Microvictories retains a deeply immersive focus of style and texture that is gleeful in the surprises it offers up. Featuring a plethora of instruments and musical approaches – both electronic and analogue – alongside often astonishing production, this debut collection of ‘small electronic pop songs’ from Brassica demands repeated listens.
A limited run of 200 full glass-mastered CDs, housed in a signature Tartaruga recycled cardstock gatefold sleeve, silk-screen printed, hand stamped, and sewn together. Each sleeve is individually numbered, and includes exclusive artwork from ten different visual artists, all enclosed on ten separate full colour postcard-style inserts.
"A cool mixture of electronic and acoustic... blessed with untold rewards"
"Tracks are a beguiling, multilayered carnal invitation to immerse oneself in a continual cascade of arresting new shapes, fetishistic molecular particles, and harmonies that nestle together under the deep-toned thrum of large drums and ripples of heavenly ascension."
