Zap Tura

Zap Tura is the celestial psych-pop project of Des Moines-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Jones. Between the bleary-eyed bedroom-pop of their debut, “Juxtaprose,” and the thick, congregational production of their newest album, “Adaptasia,” the project focuses on intricately crafted walls of intertwining, instrumental textures and found-sound experiments. Those details are pulled from organic sources like field recordings, studio sounds, and snippets from smartphone videos. Together they create a rich body of sound piercing through the layers with the kind of personal details hidden in the timestamps and location codes of digitally-captured memories.

Throughout their first two albums, the band has utilized a rotating lineup ranging from solo iterations to full band interpretations of their densely-layered album offerings. With the release of “Adaptasia”, the band has translated the album into a full multimedia and inter-sensory experience. Their live set incorporates audio-synced kaleidoscope overlays, expanding and contracting to the album’s swerving directions and dynamic ranges.

From cassette like “Juxtaprose”, to record like “Adaptasia,” or headphones on your bedroom floor to the booming PA system from some cavernous venue, the music itself transforms depending on its context. It’s adaptable, as the title of their newest album suggests, with different details unfurling from the sonic tapestry with each repeated listen.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper is the sound collage and solo recording project of Warm Gospel music label purveyor, Trey Reis. From the frenetic sample constructions of his early releases to the decaying minimalism of later experiments, Skyscraper transforms a century worth of natural sounds and recorded music into ambient soundscapes exploring the sonic depths of fidelity.
