about

"Primitive Motion, a.k.a. caveman rumba a.k.a. neanderthal pulsewave... crude music & virtuoso magic, lazy mood pieces with stratospheric trajectory. I'm grasping at scratchy Thick Pigeon singles & lost Here & Now sessions for some kind of reference point, but it's already all there in the band name. Male & female vocals careen haphazardly over cyclopean beats, drenched casio & emotive euphonium at the fertile intersection of post-punk, kraut-communal & art-school stoned." - Glenn Donaldson.

PM's offering for A Guide to Saints "Cassette Diaries" series is a document of the duo playing one Sunday afternoon in the basement studio/teenage retreat at Craig's house.

More accustomed to playing at higher volume in their practice space, this home recording reveals PM drifting into a quiet ambient cocoon of intimate suburban sound, in which a chorus of cicadas and lorikeets mix seamlessly with amplifier hiss.

Amongst a suite of improvised dream-float songs and shimmering sound sculptures, PM still manage to punch out the pulsing Rev-damaged churn of "Unchanging Light" before closing proceedings at dusk with the beautiful lament "Window".

Two Ellipses is PM's fourth release, following a 7" and cassette on US label Soft Abuse, and a 3"cdr earlier this year on Craig's own Kindling imprint.
