stuart broomer gets way into eremite's AMS set in the new issue of pointofdeparture.  "The Aboriginal Music Society belongs to an incendiary time when the boundaries between musics were temporarily falling, and the possibilities of new relationships seemed to exist everywhere. In Sultan’s avowedly social program for recording and disseminating music, there’s also an insistence on the relationships between musical and social structures and the ways they might reflect and affect one another. The special beauty of this set is the way in which it seeks to memorialize that vision."

the 100 copies of the AMS set that include the bonus promo-only 7" of 'dubbed' AMS by joshua abrams are sold out.  copies of the promo single only may still be available for you true radio raheem's out there, give me 20 D energizers!
