Spectrum Spools to Release Second LP from Forma
- Words: Patric Fallon
Though the group hasn't previously appeared on XLR8R, we've quietly admired the synth-wielding Brooklyn trio Forma since it released its self-titled debut LP last year via the Emeralds-affiliated Editions Mego imprint Spectrum Spools. As such, we're happy to discover that the ambient-leaning outfit will be doing so once again, with its second album dropping next month. The 10-track OFF/ON LP is said to "combine swirling arpeggiations, gnarled sequences, and deconstructed Motorik rhythms to conjure an atmosphere of entropic propulsion by unseen forces"; the arsenal of gear used to create those sounds looks even more impressive, as it includes machines like Roland's TR-707 and 606, Moog's Prodigy and Little Phatty, an Oberheim SEM, a Yamaha CS-15, and more. You can check out the tracklist and artwork for Forma's OFF/ON before it arrives on November 12, below.
