Medical Records presents it’s second contemporary artist release with Roladex. Imagine Kraftwerk playing Television Personalities songs. Roladex nostalgically borrows ideas from music of the past to carefully craft a unique brand of futuristic-mechanized pop, with an emphasis on songwriting and layered production. Weaving sparse, sequenced arpeggios into fuzzy bass and bubbly melodies to create a bed of sound where they layout a somehow bright melancholia. Part minimal synth-wave, part dream pop. Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight electric blue transparent vinyl and features a bonus LP insert with lyrics. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK.

Roladex – Glass Statuette

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/163619785″ params=”visual=true&liking=false&sharing=false&auto_play=false&show_comments=false&continuous_play=false” width=”100{c78b1a64dac6ce50a7c652ec3815911a7fb7fabb7e618ba199999cc6fb199c59}” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Medical Records in close collaboration with Disko Obscura Records presents a special split 7” showcasing 1 new track each by ((PRESSURES)) and Roladex. ((PRESSURES)) hails from New Orleans, LA. They craft their unique futuristic icy tracks on a museum’s worth of analog synths and drum machines. This release follows their first LP on Disko Obscura entitled “Casting Shadows”. Their contribution “The Voices” is a propulsive and dripping with synth textures track featuring vocoded vocals. Roladex (a veteran of Medical Records already with their “Anthems For the Micro-Age” LP) hails from Seattle by way of Texas. Blending girl/boy vocals with catchy pop hooks drenched in a seductive melancholy, Roladex also uses a plethora of vintage gear. “Glass Statuette” is their new track for this 7” and features their signature sound with a bit of an evolution into Moroder-esque cascading arpeggios. Fans of both artists will surely want this in their collection. Features original artwork for the “double A side” on foldover insert style by both artwork that nicely complements the music contained therein. Pressed on high quality transparent yellow vinyl. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Limited Edition.
