Artist: SAND CIRCLES
Title: Motor City
Format: Cass
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"This is MARTIN HERTERICHs second pass around the NNF circuit in his SAND CIRCLES hovercraft (following 2011s Midnight Crimes EP), and though the general schematics and engine design remain the same-aged drum machines, afterhours analog tape echo, faded synth riffs, derelict metropolis atmospheres-Motor Citys grace and execution place it in a superior division to anything else hes tracked to date. A cool, loner narrative arc plays out across each side too: "Entering Motor City" across "White Sand" wherein theres a "Downtown Holdup" in the "Innercity Haze," before cruising back out of the urban sprawl, "Distant Lights" in the rearview, on through the "Endless Nights," "Descending Into Space." As with his last tape, the Sand Circles chemistry of transfusing reverb-refracted electronic horizon melodies with pulsing, primitivist warehouse-party drum machinery really succeeds in evoking this weirdly poignant bedroom/industrial reverie mood-sphere, and the 11 instrumentals of Motor City hit this interzone pressure point better than ever. Silver ink on black shells with torched-factory graphic-design J-cards by B BROWN. Edition of 150." -Not Not Fun.

Title: Motor City
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $26.00
“Stockholm-based musician and producer Martin Herterich has released and performed under various guises since the mid-2000s, with Sand Circles being both his longest-running and most recognized project. With this reissue of Motor City (originally released on cassette in 2012 by Not Not Fun Records), Sand Circles first major appearance on vinyl is rightfully made with his most important work. The arpeggiated motifs that circle Herterichs hazy rhythms, as well as the cool-dawn synths, casually point to Detroit from a distance, while the tape-saturated, cinematic synth lines and the simple electronic percussion present the idea of a metropolis.” - Posh Isolation.

"Remixes of tracks from Sand Circles Motor City by Yen Towers, Abdullah Rashim, Quiltland, and 1991. From blissed-out, droney tape works to sharp dancefloor tracks, each of the four remixes presents a beautiful elaboration and articulation of the originals.” - Posh Isolation.
