is back with his second 12" on Ersatz Audio entitled "Civil Symmetry"
featuring 5 new songs presented in a one-of-a-kind jacket. The jackets
for "Civil Symmetry" were created by hand using the laborious technique
of block printing, then hand numbered and signed by the artist. Owning
this stunning record is also owning an original work of art, limited
to only 1,000 copies. Goudron is Detroit musician and artist Ron Zakrin.
"Civil Symmetry" is classic Ersatz Audio, filled with incessant drum
machines, rich analog synthesizers and arresting structures. This EP
is rich in perpetual tonality shifts with a thick atmosphere of unwavering
purpose. Side A starts with the unfailing drive of "Civil Symmetry"
and "Rumble Queen", ending with the playfully catchy "All The Chaps".
Side B continues the assertive thrust of Side A with "Yellow #5" and
concludes the record with the horror ballad "Run" - a personal favorite
of the label. Symphonic strings, complex rhythms, impenetrable layers
and effortlessly delivered melodies come together to create the unforgettable
sound of Goudron. "Civil Symmetry" is honest, hard-working and authentic
electronic music. With sincerity waning in contemporary music, Goudron
is a breath of fresh air. Anticipate restitution.
Also, be sure to keep an eye out for Goudron's upcoming full length
CD entitled "Raw Voltage" coming out on Ersatz Audio May 18th.
