NORTH AMERICANS is a backdrop to your everyday experience as much as it is a gyrating antagonizer of all the things on your mind at any given moment. It's computer music with an surprisingly organic base, cyborgian at times. Discerning where, when, and how PATRICK MCDERMOTT's sounds are born can be difficult. Sliced and diced chunks of time and space rotate from cloud to cloud, screaming about nothing. North Americans is the sound of expunging information. Patrick McDermott (co-founder of Driftless Recordings) began crafting North Americans in New York City. It's his soundtrack for escaping New York as much as it is a celebration of the City's intoxicating beauty. A two-faced beast that's both dark-sided and confrontational, hopeful and optimistic. Fans of Oval, Fennesz, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Brian Eno are taking notice. This limited vinyl LP boasts unique artwork from MEGAZORD and photographer DAVID BLACK.
