Dallas Acid supporting Bill Callahan on EU tour
Dallas Acid is a synth-heavy dreampop trio from Austin, Texas and the first new signing to All Saints Records in a number of years. Following previous releases on Flying Moonlight and Olde English Spelling Bee, they join a roster that includes Brian Eno, Harold Budd and Laraaji (who the band previously collaborated with on 2018’s Arrive Without Leaving album).
All Saints Records founder Dominic Norman-Taylor comments: “Dallas Acid's unique mix of minimalist electronic music with a big ballad sensibility creates gorgeous, utterly compelling immersive soundworlds. All Saints Records is delighted to release their album The Spiral Arm. Dallas Acid is our first new signing for several years. It’s been worth the wait”. Dallas Acid: “We are honoured and humbled to be a part of the incredible All Saints family, and share label space with so many legendary, talented pioneers whose explorations into the ambient, electronic and avant-garde helped to influence and guide us to the creation of The Spiral Arm.”
The sky-gazing wonder of Linda Beecroft’s vocals on the title track recall the breathy intimacy of Mazzy Star, yet draped with almost symphonic banks of synthesizers blinking into infinity, expertly operated by Christian Havins and Michael Gerner, redolent of the deepest end of classic kosmische music. Other tracks such as the instrumental “Circuit Jungle” touch upon the ‘Fourth World’ experiments of Jon Hassell with a mixture of moog abstractions and FX-drenched acoustic percussion. At other points they touch upon the rain-drenched soundtracks of Vangelis and other more mysterious, electronic arthouse film scores.
Dallas Acid will join Bill Callahan on his European tourdates including his show in TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht on October 7.
