about

The first 7" from Coltrane Motion, two-and-a-half minutes of frentic synth noise, backed with a thick, fuzzed out slab of shoegazer drone-pop. Farfisa, harmonium, and mellotron shimmer and swirl around a raucous mess of drum loops and guitar, smothering a couple pure pop gems in a sea of distortion. Michael and Matt fulfill their usual duties in this electronic duo, with GD Mills from Fuck Knights filling in on drums. On color vinyl with hand-numbered screenprinted jackets, and a high-quality MP3 download code for all four tracks.

CD version out on 75orLess Records, with two bonus remixes of tracks from Songs About Music by You, You're Awesome and Superaction80.

Coltrane Motion Chicago

hey, let's make a dance record that sounds like what we dance to: girl groups and big beat and fuzzed-out indiepop / let's make a shoegaze laptop record out of drum breaks, guitar drone and broken synthesizers / yeh, let's call it rock n roll

Track Name: The Year Without A Summer
if you don't want me i don't want you
i'm happy on my own
if you don't need me i don't need you
i'd rather sleep alone
i know we shouldn't be this cold
feels like the year without a summer
if you don't care
i could

but if you want me i could want you
we've both been there before
and if you need me i might need you
i never closed the door
god knows your body's here and warm
feels like the year without a summer
if you want me
i could
Track Name: Maya Blue
give me a look, give me something to sing about
i'm tired of going out by myself
our bodies are young / our bodies are understood
let's start a fire, i could use a change

maya blue
red and marigold

here with you
this could be something

there's a hand in my mouth, there's a blush to your cheeks
your hair's a mess so guess we're friends
salt on my tongue / sugary sweet
we want what we want and we want it right now
