"Terrestrial Tones is the home recorded project of roommates Dave Portner (Avey Tare of Animal Collective) and Eric Copeland of Black Dice, published by an emerging label in the underground noise scene, Psych-o-Path records. Blasted, their debut record combines a creepy parade of burlesque musicalia with the underwater travels of a submarine 20,000 leagues under the sea. Deep almost unrecognizable vocals hidden in layers of sub-bass warbles are reminiscent of work on the Charhizma Label, particularly Christof Kurzmann and his collaborations with Dafeldecker and dieb13. Likewise there are nods to the diverse almost pop-twitch of Dat Politics and the polyrhythmic patterns of the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction projects. It's a dance music record (microtonal future extremely abstract dance) for people who like to wiggle to shoes tumbling in washing machines with monkey cymbals and puppet shows. It is serious yet unpretentious, even whimsical, and will appeal to fans of experimental electronics, IDM, Throbbing Gristle and related, the drones and squeals of Black Dice and the nouveau pop psychedelia of Animal Collective."
