✚ “Synth Two” off the new Emily A. Sprague album, Mount Vision: mlesprg.bandcamp.com. I wrote a bit about its title track during its prerelease. (This track wasn’t initially on the Google Play Music version of Stasis Report because the album wasn’t, but eventually it popped up.)

The album was originally released in 1994, and is the subject of my 2014 book in the 33 1/3 series: aphextwin.warp.net
