Press Release: Multicast’s Bahian Coastal Highway

Multicast Bahian Coastal Highway

Multicast – Bahian Coastal Highway (Carpe Sonum 2016)

( Nathan Jantz, Dave Alexander, and Jeff Holland )

Catalog:  SEIZE-XX

Carpe Sonum is proud to unveil the CD reissue of the limited LP-only recording from Multicast, originally mastered by Lupo at Dubplates & Mastering in 2005, BCH–including two bonus tracks not available previously–has been re-mastered for CD by Lupo, now at Calyx Mastering in Berlin. First gaining notoriety via their own Obliq Recordings imprint back in the early oughts, Colorado-based rural electronic musicians Dave Alexander, Jeff Holland, and Nathan Jantz haven’t exactly vanished from the scene, releasing a slew of digital-only work in the interim. Bahian Coastal Highway sounds ahead of its time, with rich harmonic texture and memorable melodies. The trio maintain that, ”the feel we were shooting for was about arrival and departure, on a journey to Another Green World. There are Brasilian rhythms & chords, exotica and jungle references” with soundscapes conjuring ”a new place, with new experiences met with open eyes…” At times, the Balearic, sunny environments suggested by most of these tracks seems at odds with the group’s former modus operandi, but then again, that’s precisely the point. Sidestepping pat categorical references, Multicast feel that this recording is their ”most refined and resolved effort, featuring crystalline beauty amid soap-opera melodies, meeting on the veranda in a sunny place. There is collaboration and interplay in the songwriting and structure that could only come from years of playing together, and through a telepathic musical connection.”
