Following the November 2014 release of their debut, Futura Grotesk, London-based duo Tomaga drew plaudits from musical luminaries as diverse as Tony Conrad, Nicolas Jaar, Silver Apples, and Wire, who invited the duo to join them on a European tour. If Futura Grotesk represented waking thought, then their follow-up, Familiar Obstacles, is the unconscious interzone, evoking numerous shades of the group's musical hinterlands. It fuses studio experiments, field recordings, and tonal spectra into something by turns resembling musique concrète, imaginary soundtracks, and library music. Familiar Obstacles was originally released as a limited cassette by the Blank Editions label in Spring 2015, and appears here re-edited and remastered for vinyl.
