A Spectrum of Infinite Scale

by: Man or Astro-Man?

Another mix of spaced-out surf and instrumental tracks. The usual goodness from Man or Astro-Man? here, with plenty of bad sci-fi flick samples to start the songs, which all have the requisite clever song titles. The album begins and ends with a Wall of Sound mix of feedback and drums, with washes of ambient synthesizer added for texture. One track in particular stands out. "Simple Text File" is exactly that; a recording of a dot-matrix printer in operation. The fact that tonal variations can result in a possible melody being developed is quite interesting, and used for novel effect here. Overall, A Spectrum of Infinite Scale is another very good collection of tight playing and propulsive instrumentals. ~ Jeremy Salmon
