Listen To White Saucer's Album 'Arbitrary Yeti'

Aotearoa noise legends White Saucer aka the team of Stella Corkery and Alan Holt have a new album out, and if you move fast you might still be able to cop a limited cassette edition via NO Label (who also released Bodyache's eardrum-scouring Demonstration Of Intent in late October). A question I've been rolling around during Tāmaki Makaurau's endless lockdown months is "what is time?" — White Saucer squash and stretch that innocent notion into atemporal immersive cosmic dronescapes like an astronaut entering an event horizon, utilising the deceptively "traditional" "rock" instrumentation of guitar and drums. Sounding like you might happily discover the exact resonant frequency of your apartment building (or suburban home) if you crank the volume way up and play around a bit with your hi-fi system's EQ settings, White Saucer revealed over on Bandcamp how Arbitrary Yeti expands upon their 2019 collection Positive Noir // Gold Scratch...

"These tracks are kind of a revisit to Positive Noir // Gold Scratch. They are not the same but after listening to that album the other day I decided that I would like to hear these pieces longer - much longer. This new album is not made up of edits - rather they are revisiting the workflows that created the original tracks and keeping them running for twenty minutes or so. Track 2 is sonically the same as Positive Noir // Gold Scratch #1. The other tracks were created by tweaking the workflows just a bit here and there."
