Beaks Plinth and Scott Caligure: Flameout (Gigante Sound)
Label: Gigante Sound    
Released in: USA    

"Inspired by the 1984 romantic sci-fi classic Starman and its accompanied soundtrack by Jack Nitzsche, comes a new collaboration between the Bay Area slow -vinylist composer Beaks Plinth (Jared Blum, Blanketship, Vulcanus 68) and San Diego synthesist Scott Caligure. The meeting began when Blum begged Caligure to give up some of his treasured Korg MS 20 four-track tapes for use on a new project. Before long, Blum created a heady blend of slow drifting drones, tape music, electronic interferences and dark vinyl passages with the bubbling, velvety grace and warm subs of Caligure's analogue movements. What Flameout became can be only described as ambient dreamscapes of melodic foundry steeped in the memory of Jeff Bridges' descent on planet earth in 1984. A dark mountainous terrain with a burst of energy from the skies of the unknown."-Gigante Sound
