"Gigante Sound recording artist Borful Tang, the outer inter-dimensional exile, returns with some of his strongest material to date. After a three year hiatus spent walking, thinking and observing, Mr. Tang brings a more compact and concise offering with Herd and Unherd.
Produced and engineered by Gigante label head Dominic Cramp (Evangelista, Qulfus, Vulcanus 68), Herd and Unherd takes nuggets from times past and whips them into a spooky nostalgia; then shifts into the present, cutting up AM Christian broacasts, alien worshippers in Marin, and finally disappears down the rabbit hole with a 17 minute drift into dark space.
What sets Borful Tang apart is his keen sense of narrative and a consistent underbed of musicality to his abstractions.
Hill herder by trade, collector of traditional music, exploiter of sound; Tang digs ever deeper into his collection of personal field recordings, instrument recordings and dusty finyl found-sound to conjure up some of the most unique sounds on the planet."-Gigante Sound
