Post Materialists - "SP/IL" CS

Regular price $6.00

(Glass Jelly Souffle)

Post-Materialism is technically defined as a concept of value orientation that emphasizes self-expression and quality of life over economic and physical security. The term was first coined by American social scientist Ronald Inglehart in The Silent Revolution: Changing Values and Political Styles Among Western Publics.

The group hailing from Moscow is also the demented force behind the confusing label Post-Materialization Music, spewing bizarre lumps of screen printed toxic jelly across the sub-sub-underground, and supporting a range of heavy hitter artists from across the worldwide community of experimental music.

SP/IL is a new compilation of unreleased archive recordings by this infamous troop of surrealists, containing the first ever live recordings by the band. 

Inspired by freeform experimental groups like The Residents and Big City Orchestra, and in-league with locals like Asian Women on the Telephone and Arabian Horses, the Post-Materialists' sound is best heard in Moscow's basements and abandoned factories.

Founded in 2008, the group began as a duo, eventually evolving to include additional members joining in on anything from effects pedals to violin, embracing the spirit of live improvisation and spontaneously reactive playing.

"Post-Materialists are Pre-Etruscan romantics using hand hewn traditional instruments with 1980s Los Angeles alt rock sensibilities."

DIY Russian import cassette, comes strangely packaged in screen printed art-paper package, classic GLS form.
