Over the past several years, Sandro Perri has been letting us in on a fascinating collection of strange and enchanting collaborative sound recordings that he’s crafted under the project name Off World. Chiefly a studio-based endeavour, Off World traces its origins as far back as 2008, with Perri and fellow Torontonian Lorenz Peter (Corpusse, Processor) working together on tracks and very occasionally performing live under the moniker. However the project’s recordings encompass collaborations between Perri and many other producers and musicians, including Drew Brown (Lower Dens, Blonde Redhead, Beck), Susumu Mukai (Zongamin), M J Silver (Mickey Moonlight), Craig Dunsmuir (Glissandro 70, Kanada 70), Eric Chenaux, and Jesse Zubot.

About this latest track, Sandro Perri comments, “Impulse Controller (Pre-Dub)” was born in the Off World “1” sessions and developed during the making of Off World “2”. A “pre-dub” (not to be confused with a "rough mix" or a "demo") is made long before a track meets its death and subsequent rebirth as the “final mix". It has a special and usually private purpose – to hear the sounds as they are, without too much concern for the musical composition – and to notice what impulses arise in response to them. This version in particular is a showcase for a blistering first take by trumpeter Nicole Rampersaud".

Lungbutter, who scored a rave review here not so long back,  return with a striking new video for the trackCurtain’ taken from their debut album Honey which came out earlier this Spring via Constellation. Live dates for the UK are currently being booked in for April 2020 – more details to follow in due course.

About the track the band remarks:"The lyrics of this song are about the struggle to be legible to others. They come from the feeling of simultaneously being lonely and spending too much time having long and circular conversations. Our brains and selves are all obscure to us."

Lyrics to "Curtain"
it’s clearer from the other side
me under the big dark mood
it’s hard not to think of maybe taking off my blinders
you said i have a very dark and heavy personality
but that don’t cut through the curtain
i could not cut through the curtain
now is the time for an increase
calm waters only
calm fires only
