For OPAF North, Cone Shape Top will revisit Dream Radio, a project initially presented as bodyworkbodywork at OPAF 2019 in San Pedro. Dream Radio showcased the work of over 20 international artists working in a wide variety of sound in a site-specific location. For 2022 we plan to expand on this vision, presenting another immersive and surreal listening experience in Juilliard Park, Santa Rosa.
We are seeking submissions of recorded sound (max length 5 minutes) to play as part of this program. Open to all sonic transmissions (music, sound art, spoken word, field recordings, demos, interviews, and anything else that you can think of). All submissions will be included, please share!
For our new installment of CST Radio
we're excited to welcome Dyatron Industries
San Francisco’s Dyatron Industries transcends the realms of an indie label and DJ duo. Through a deeply commited love of music and vinyl and an extensive personal collection spanning Italo Disco, Electro, Synthpop, Hip Hop and Dark Wave Rave, an otherworldly universe exists and within it you will find the Man from Dyatron (Luciano Duran) and DJ Mechanica (Vee Reyes). Two robots transplanted to Earth from the Dyatronian galaxy with a mission to sustain, preserve and honor all Italo and Electro music through live vinyl dj sets within the deep caverns of SF underground clubs and bars, a monthly show on Sutro FM and limited reissues with wonderfully hand-drawn comics that draw us even deeper into their world.
~ NEW ARRIVALS ~
Cherushii - 3 EPs
We are truly honored to share this beautiful compilation of 3 previously digital-only releases by Cherushii, an artist so important to the Bay Area electronic music scene and sadly gone too soon. Perfect Location's thoughtfulness and care in presenting these works emanate brightly, working closely with Cherushii's family to continue on her legacy, featuring the original hand-drawn artwork plus new cover art by her sister, Sabrina, and collaborations with some of her friends and mentors. This collection highlights an artist with an innate sense for harnessing the euphoria of house music.
Shop pick - the Deep Version of Manic (feat Kara Marie)
Max was kind enough to leave us with some of his recent releases after his show at CST in March and we're excited to share! Really fine lo-fi sound improvisation and collage, incorporating live instruments, voice, tape loops. Rewards a close listen with new discoveries each time.
Shop pick - "Loon" for something a little more sparse, "Diligent Pores/Wispy" for something a little more psychedelic
Happy to offer more Humanherb in the shop :) this latest release moves into some exciting new territory. The familiar base of slowly-evolving analog synth arpeggios is there, but now masked in a detuned and distorted fog, jittery, distant, and even more otherworldy! As an added bonus we have a copy of their 2011 release as Hlep, from a previous post-punk life.
Shop pick - the short but mesmerizing "Coordinated Plateau Extraction pt 4"
Clean Butt - KEA 1989
Harsh noise by San Jose-based Calvin Houser aka Clean Butt using Taylor Swift's "1989" as source material and incinerating it to shreds. Each CD-r handmade and comes in it's own custom American Spirit pouch.
