Primitive Motion - Certain Materials 7"

Soft Abuse

Words from the label:

"Debut release from this Australian modern primitive duo. With lyrics cut from dated astronomy texts & ping pong vocal rounds soaked in reverb, Primitive Motion create their own brand of spontaneous, steam-driven electronic pop.  Their moves recall Joe Jones’ readymades, Joe Meek's I Hear a New World & the minimalism of The Door and Window, as preset keyboard, voices and cosmic flute intersect with machine / human beat systems across the four songs on Certain Materials. 

Primitive Motion is Leighton Craig & Sandra Selig, both members of The Deadnotes." - Soft Abuse

"Leighton Craig, who does time in the great twisted jazz trio the Deadnotes and is also a solo artist, and Sandra Selig, who I’m not familiar with, have created a very compelling improvised ambient murk on this 7”. The instrumentation is male and female vocals, flute, a primitive sounding drum machine,and lots and lots of reverb. It doesn’t sound like much on paper, but all the elements weave together to make a beautiful haze that keeps me coming back to this records and playing it over and over. This record is one of the best things I’ve heard in 2011 so far. Great things are happening in Brisbane, Australia!" - Chris Strunk, Still Single
