Animal Psi review of Present Heap by Excavacations

We are pleased to have our recent Excavacations tape on Stunned reviewed on animalpsi.com. It seems the second “ca” in our name is very elusive. Be on the lookout for our new tape, Afternoon Future, coming very soon.

“Excavations (Nick Longworth and Chad Parsons) return with a second cassette for the label entitled ‘Present Heap’, an appropriate document of catch-up given the pair’s semi-structured sound and shapeless playlist. Briskly turning pages though never losing the story, untitled Side A moves through a variety of drones (warmly amplified), breakout post-music riffs (begging completion), passive vocal harmonies (begging to join), and friendly, domestic circuits bent at uplifting angles. Despite its diversions and rare coordination, this genuinely stunning grab of sounds manage to complement each other horizontally, in pieces. On the reverse more ambient accidents, teeming sea drones, a lost broadcast of some miraculous college rock b-sider (Bailter Space? Ganger?), and settling into extended psychedelic concussions both searing and motorific – it all works. Godspeed the next Excavations. Glossy, full-color J-cards and embossed tapes. Limited to 111 copies each. (Stunned cassette, $7 HERE)”
