LOW STOCK LEVEL
"New single from acclaimed Scottish electronica duo Rubens. Rubens make fucked up electronic/acoustic music that is melodic and lush in equal measure -- think Fourtet/ Boards Of Canada/Caribou. Puggies/Vertical Hold is available on 7" only, and limited to just 300 copies. The release is a taster from the duo's forthcoming debut album, Carnivalesque. 'Puggies' is an expertly layered piece of digital atmospherics, awash with gentle synthesizer melodies, underpinned by flourishes of electronics and drum rolls. On the flip, 'Vertical Hold' offers deftly chopped and processed acoustic guitar coupled with slo-mo head-nodding beats."
