Golden Retriever 2, the second eponymous release from the Portland, OR duo of Matt Carlson and Jonathan Sielaff, gets its proper due as an LP on Debacle Records on July 10th 2015. This work of Golden Retriever, a pair who Redefine has called, "devout electronic musicians, in love with the lab, with the possibilities of sound, and of machines" is a documentation of players jamming out the blueprint for their project, loose compositions that still demonstrate two masters of their craft. Originally out on Carlson's own label Bucket Factory as a very limited 100-copy CD-R release in 2010, Debacle is over the moon to present it in its idealized form, on vinyl -- premium white vinyl in a matte sleeve with spot gloss embellishments, to be exact.

Golden Retriever -- Matt Carlson on modular synthesizer and Jonathan Sielaff on bass clarinet and effects -- blurs the line between sounds created electronically and acoustically. The pair formed Golden Retriever in 2008 and began to develop a language informed by the practices of free improvisation as well as the tradition of American experimental electronic composers like Alvin Curran and David Behrman. Golden Retriever creates music that is creatively challenging and structurally complex while remaining inviting and emotionally dynamic rather than adopting a confrontational stance toward the listener.
