Lortica releases Mialle Tapes

We are proud to present Mialle Tapes, the debut full-length from Sydney artist Lortica aka Alister Hill.
Alister creates murky and immersive soundscapes by sampling and re-sampling found cassettes and processing them through his array of pedals and vintage cassette recorders.

The result is a challenging collection that is part euphoric sedation, part claustrophobic nightmare that burrows into your subconscious with its layers of buried melodies and decaying textures.

Fans of William Basinski, the Caretaker and Grouper take note! Lortica is a new name to add to this esteemed list of compelling artists.

Mialle Tapes is available digitally via the Feral bandcamp store here and will be released as a limited-edition cassette via Danish label Phinery later this month.

First taste off Lortica’s forthcoming album

Next week will see the release of Mialle Tapes, the debut full-length from Sydney artist Lortica (aka Alister Hill) who creates immersive soundscapes based on the sampling and re-sampling of found cassettes and guitar loops through an array of pedals, processors, vintage cassette recorders and his trusty Tascam 424.
