Salad Dog in Moon Shell

by Map Collection

Qua Dub 02:48


Map Collection, the Oakland, California-based duo of Fletcher Pratt (Midori Records, Dub Sessions, Mind Gunk, etc.) and Curt Brown (RCN, Black Unicorn, Baingan Bharta, etc.), returns with their fourth album of electronic music — the full-length cassette album Salad Dog in Moon Shell — out September 2019 on Rubber City Noise as a limited edition cassette tape. Recorded throughout 2018 and 2019 at Life Changing Ministries in Oakland — Salad Dog finds the pair collecting a range of sounds and textures through a myriad blend of rhythmic subtleties and noisy excursions via electronics, synthesizers, drum machines, samples, and electro-acoustics. Across 10 tracks and clocking in at just over an hour, MapCol is in full conceptual mode here in terrain that asks, “Who is Salad Dog?” and “What is Moon Shell?” and “What is that Funny Feeling?”

"We first heard of the Salad Dog from Artemis_Shoal on the Wave-Relfex transmitter channel, or #parallelogram on DinNet. Some numbskull flooded the channel with harsh truths and it was a wear down simmering feel to the whole of it. We tried to follow the message as it fell across the screen but drifted and wandered our reflexes made apparent by the shudder of the real. It struck across a moonstone, a shell left lingering on the deal of it and beyond that something chthonic and burrowing with it, an idea from somewhere lingering on the outskirts of-like. The dimmable atmosphere of it. Salad Dog glowering in the abyssal plane, long and toward something view."
