Monster Movie - alka remix - Graveface Records


Graveface Records has announced that after 2 years of work Monster Movie's "Transistor" Expanded is now up for pre-order on limited edition colored vinyl LP in a screen-printed foldover with a letterpress insert and/or digital download:

https://graveface.bandcamp.com/album/transistor-expanded

Side A is a brand new remaster of the original EP and Side B features covers and remixes of Transistor by The Stargazer Lilies, New Fumes, Camera Shy, all in the golden afternoon and Alka.

Excited to have the opportunity to take part in this release with a remix for "dream pop" specialists, Monster Movie which is of course comprised of Sean Hewson and Christian Savill (also of Slowdive). Their pastoral track Left has always been a favorite of mine and it was kind of them to allow me free reign with the original isolated tracks. I coincidentally had Halsey Shelton's (Primitive Finks/Full Blown Cherry) Moog MG-1 that I had just repaired sitting in my studio so I experimented dropping it into the mix... things went a little strange after that... but you'll need to order the record to hear that.

The Colour of Terrible Crystal :: 13.10.17





New full-length release :: The Colour of Terrible Crystal
out Friday the 13th, October 2017 on Vince Clarke's VeryRecords

"Here you will find the same melodic sensibilities that coloured the two earlier Alka albums, but you’ll also hear the sound of a restless, mercurial musician unafraid of crashing together diffuse elements – faltering stop-start rhythms, glitches, drifting ambience, near-pop and crisp beats inflected with the boldness of early electro...

‘The Colour Of Terrible Crystal’ is an exercise in electronic eclecticism; dark and moody, at times broodingly cinematic, at times carrying subtle layers of delicate optimism alongside edgier, experimental moments. Few can make albums where so many apparently incompatible stylistic switches appear so coherent, or make music whose clashing juxtapositions continually reveal themselves with successive listens." - Mat Smith


“... and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. They move through the  firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.” – Peter Lamborn Wilson

The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magic, Music and Ritual 12



Includes new track :: Multiple :: Multi-faceted as crystal. We saw this day come and go, like shards of colored light. The planets rise and fall, to nothing... to darkness. The stars glow in sync; appearing multiple | singular | modular | linear.

"They move through the firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.” – Peter Lamborn Wilson


Produced and programmed by bryan.alka, additional programming Todd Steponick, lyrics and vocal elements by erika tele & todd steponick. additional primal outcries: matthew kirscht & micha'el horrible
