Alien8 Recordings and its sub-label Substractif will release the debut full-length, “The Science of Breath”, by Toronto producer Sandro Perri, a.k.a. Polmo Polpo, who blends deep, murky techno with rich layers of feedback and densely orchestrated melodies. Recently the artist has enjoyed an explosion in popularity, thanks in part to a number of opening performances for Do Make Say Think, Pan Sonic and Oval.
Trying to describe the sound of Polmo Polpo is not an easy task. The marriage of deep rhythms with shifting waves of melody and sometimes brutal white noise is certainly not a commonly used formula. This music is beyond catchy, the sound of the slide guitar shifting in and out of Gas-style minimalism gives the music a driving force that so much of the genre lacks.
