"Bulbs is a band that I like so much that I started a record label to rep their work. I put out their Light Ships album in 2008 because I was so impressed with how futuristic their music was. They've remained active on their own terms since then, releasing a number of micro-editions of their music including a few incredible tapes (Sky ListeningMoon Episodes) and a few splits (a 12" with Mouthus (IMPREC 255LP) and a 7" with Wobbly). Generally Bulbs' music does not sound like the guitar/drum instrumentation would indicate. They have much more to do with Chain Reaction than The White Stripes, but with the benefit of live instrumentation and an adventurous edge, they end up much wilder, looser, more organic than anything coming out of Berlin. Color Attic is the second major work by Bulbs and finds the group exploring more oblique ambience, elliptical and granular guitar mashing up with loose, swinging synth drums, orbiting and colliding with each other. All experimentation aside, Color Attic remains lush, beautiful and melodic to the point that you might find yourself humming parts of 'Ladder Wing' while you're doing the dishes." --Pete Swanson, January 3, 2016
