The Dept. of Harmonic Integrity – In Deck and Depth, a Whim, a Weft

God, I love bands that are named like some sort of government organizations. Big names. Departments. Sectors. Bureaucracy. Discipline. An air of importance and a strong belief in what you are doing is right. Min Roach and Wayne Longer from The Department of Harmonic Integrity have a mission. Taking the raw synthesis into the 21st century, they present their retrofuturistic, retroactive incentive In Deck and Depth, a Whim, a Weft, released on the Nebraskian homespun label Tymbal Tapes. Utilizing the most basic analog equipment and skeletal compositional methods they switch between the arpeggioed, deep drone mantras to crystalline ambience, introducing, in their own words, “husky cold war electroacoustics to the contemporary joys of perestroika”. 20 minutes into the future, this is New Music. Highly recommended!
