** First Pressing on Transparent Magenta Vinyl**The Oscillation’s continuing journey into the centre of the mind and beyond shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. Indeed, new album Untold Futures is less a consolidation of all that we’ve come to love and expect from the cosmic explorers and more a leap forward into an upcoming reality.
Redefining the possibilities of altered states through audio stimulation, Untold Futures finds The Oscillation at their most daring and breathtaking. A multi-layered assault on the senses, this is an unexpurgated experience for the seasoned connoisseur and unspoiled novice alike. Its power is felt in the multi-layered dissonance and undying throb of Dilated Mind, the metaphysical possibilities that beat at the heart of metronomic pulses of Forever Knowing and the face-melting attack of The Inner Void. Heart Of Nowhere is a mantra for the profane, while the dissonant beauty of Obscured realises re-birth and resurrection.
Revelatory in its brilliance and an intersection between the individual self and the collective unconscious, this is music to fuel the inner technology of the mind. So load up to the brim and give yourself up to Untold Futures.
Veering between krautrock edginess, droning medicated tones and noise driven no wave fuzz, The Oscillation recalls the music of Neu! and Tangerine Dream and Loop interpreted with an eye on Pil’s dubbed out punk funk, Miles Davis’ experimentalism and Spacemen 3’s strung out blues rock. Beginning in 2007, when DC Recordings released the debut “Out Of Phase”, The Oscillation have released many albums and e.ps, both self released and with labels (Fuzz Club and Hands In The Dark and Cardinal Fuzz). Recent releases include the mutant kosmiche techno of “U.E.F”, the pounding and otherworldly “Wasted Space” from 2018 and the epic exploration of the inner landscapes with “Droneweapon”. Now The Oscillation return with a new face-biting album questioning our strange relationship with reality as “Untold Futures”.
