A SUN SPINNING BACKWARDS [CD|2xLP|DIGITAL]
Formed in a dingy Melbourne warehouse at the turn of the century, Terminal Sound System began as a vehicle for Skye Klein, half of Relapse Records cult doom/noise duo HALO, to explore his interest in experimental electronic music and Dub.
Ten albums later, TSS has expanded to include live instrumentation and synchronious video projection, merging epic doom, post-rock and jazz with electronica, drum'n'bass and heavy dub into a style wholly unique. Ostensibly a studio project, Terminal Sound System takes on new life as a live entity, infusing hyperprecise digital audio with the energy of rock & metal, all presented before synchronised video projection.
With 'A Sun Spinning Backwards' Terminal Sound System now present their eleventh release and third on Germany's Denovali, which extends onward and outward the path forged by the ‘vast’ (The Sleeping Shaman) and ‘immersive’ (De:Bug) 2011's Heavy Weather.
A Sun Spinning Backwards is a record filled with foreboding and hope in equal measures; foreboding for a seemingly unstoppable race towards extinction, hope for a future path that will be shaped and paved by our children.
Weaving together threads of post-rock and electronica, space-rock atmospherics with devastating passages of doom, A Sun Spinning Backwards is a multifaceted journey from inner to outer space.
