UUUUUU - The Astral Travels cd-r



 


UUUUUU is Scotland's Derek McArthur. The Astral Travels is a sprawling 75 minute album of lucid guitar drones, flowing through the cosmos at slow-motion-lightspeed. Pretty melodies develop over top of the patient compositions and unfold in a most comfortable fashion.

edition of 42

"6 U's".

Now that I've told you, has it made you more interested in hearing 75 minutes of ambient drone?

Yeah the name came from when I first recorded a track for the project and randomly punched in uuuuuu as a placeholder. I started using it for all the other files and it stuck, I never thought of it's pronunciation when thinking of it. Most people I know just say 6 U's mostly cause 'you you you you you you' is way too tedious to say haha. It's only $6 if you're in the USA and the package is really cool (plus it's 75 minutes of music, and I write the pieces like songs so it doesn't entirely drone on), so you know, it's worth the money I'd say.

Oh and for those of you wondering, it's taken a long time for this to come together (I recorded it a year ago) and I'm glad it's came together cause this is my best work so far.

do want.

I pronounce it "ewwwww". it's the sound from stepping of feces, finding fresh roadkill under your tire, vomit in your backseat, a clogged or unflushed public toilet or even the simple fact of knowing that a coworker does not wash their hands.

drone on.

Send me a copy Derek. No money for such releases at the moment, I'm afraid. I will send you a bunch of stuff in return with bitching about things and art.

I'll see how many artist copies I get first (they've still not arrived, damn international shipping). I could easily send you the Robe. tape because I got a massive amount of copies of that, I'm not sure if this will be in the same scenario.

I chose to release it as a CD-R because I wanted to preserve the quality and that there would have been less copies made if it were cassette. I also wanted it to be available to those that don't have tape players (which is a surprising amount of people). I will probably (read: definitely) have cassette releases in the future though.

I don't really have other plans so far except create create create and hopefully one or two people will take notice haha.

This album is getting a lot more popularity than I thought it would though..
