Jetman Jet Team – Music For the Metabolists

Referring to and inspiring their tape work on the 1960’s group of experimental Japanese architects named Metabolists, the Seattle group Jetman Jet Team delves deep into the realms of tape music and hauntology, composing a new album from the patchwork of found sounds and melodies collected from countless cassettes. Re-imagining the vintage future of 1960’s Japan connected by superblocks and living machines, Jetman Jet Team take a radical approach and change the surface of the musical landscape, just like the metabolists wanted to change Japan, creating new versions of Tokyo or building cities like living bodies. This music is pulsing, as if living its own life, with lots of alien-like activity going on below the surface.
