Boomkat Product Review:
LA mainstay Eddie Ruscha makes blissful disco psychedelia with his esteemed pals for RVNG Intl on 'Tactile Galactics'. As a former shoegazer and core member of Medicine - the first American band signed to Creation - he's certainly got a way with melody, but his focus has long since shifted from moody rock to intergalactic dance music, bringing him into contact with the likes of Rub n' Tug's Thomas Bullock as Laughing Light Of Plenty and again with Ariel Pink's Huanted Graffiti bandmate Tim Koh, Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto, and DJ Harvey as Food Of The Gods. So, credentials in order (we know how the disco beards like to keep it formal), he's joined by the likes of Nite Jewel collaborator, Cole MGN and other LA notables for to explore 'Tactile Galactics' at a 120bpm momentum dissolving elements of classic, psychotomimetic Trax house, acid-fried krautrock and the glands of classic dub and disco on a trajectory to transcen-dance over 14 tracks including a deliciously smudged-out Vakula remix. RIYL Peaking Lights, Danielle Baldelli DJ sets, Lindstrøm, dreaming of LA.
