Out of stock

*restocked* Recorded from 2009-2011, during which time Caboladies members Eric Lanham and Chris Bush relocated from Kentucky to Chicago, Renewable Destination constitutes the duo's most refined and focused work to date. Both as a collaborative unit and under solo monikers Carl Calm and Flower Man, Lanham and Bush have produced a wealth of limited-run releases in recent years on labels such as Arbor, Dekorder, Digitalis, and their own Smooth Tapes imprint which document their uniquely fractured sonic sensibilities. Perhaps what amazes most about the pair's work is the sheer diversity of their palettes. At any given time, we get the sense that any sound is possible, as they construct intricately-designed edifices rife with microcosmic detail. It is this keen attention to the hyper-detailed that distinguishes Renewable Destination, and the oeuvres of Lanham and Bush as a whole, from their 'synth revivalist' contemporaries.This is music that refuses to sit still, yet at the same proves remarkably coherent and, at times, strikingly beautiful. If pressed, one could perhaps locate the duo's aesthetic somewhere between the sounds of Mouse on Mars and Microstoria and composers such as Francois Bayle and Bernard Parmegiani, but the soundworlds which Lanham and Bush inhabit are truly and uniquely their own.
