Edmund Davie's oMMM project ventures yet deeper into the murky realms of cassette experimentation, with his latest release, Parallel Lines Converge. Cassette collage and drum machine rhythms are channeled through a trusty four track, sounds that seem to belong to some distant cosmological order. Noise synths and casiotone are drenched in tape hiss, rising to intoxicating proportions, adding yet another hazy veil to oMMM's work. With as much attention paid to eerily buzzing soundscapes as overloaded drum sequences, Parallel Lines Converge navigates a vast expanse of sonic no-man's land, all the while teetering on the brink of madness.

"oMMM is the brainchild of Edmund Davie and uses primitive electronics, four-track cassette recorder, tape work, synth and drum machine to generate the kind of lonely lunar satellites that combine the feel of early Asmus Tietchens with classic, spooked bedroom radiophonia and an eerie occult/galactic atmosphere that is somewhere between The Conet Project and Joe Meek’s I Hear A New World. Tracks read like NASA interceptions of punk primitive alien technologies tone-dialling 20th century receptors with squiggles of shortwave, early Industrial wasp soundings, brain-blotting loops and clunky hermetic drones underlining the whole scientific bedroom hobbyist appeal. Unmusical and mind-bendingly crude, this makes for the perfect combination of eccentric analogue experimentation and cold, austere Kluster/Conrad Schnitzler style dead dark space. A great debut, highly recommended." - David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue
"a regularly unsettling but equally immersive piece of sonic sci-fi; the sound of a weed chongin’ alien race having an interstellar jam with the detritus of supposedly defunct human technologies"- Tiny Mix Tapes
“oMMM has been developing a ramshackle take on space-pop built out of freaky synths, four-track tapes and old drum machines over the course of the past decade.” -Juno Plus
