LOSSY // Bundle 2 - 12" Three Tone Splatter Vinyl + Cassette

We’re so incredibly excited to be announcing the release of Oro Swimming Hour’s sophomore album Lossy.

Based in the South West of England, Oro Swimming Hour is the magical two piece project comprised of Nicholas Stevenson, 30-year-old art teacher and children’s book illustrator, and Oliver Wilde, 30-year-old three-dimension sound designer and ex-concierge for a haunted mansion.

The 21 track album was recorded in two sittings onto tape machines in Nicholas’s home office and Oliver’s shared living room. It depicts songs about topics such as sub marine life, arsenic wallpaper, 90’s computer games and cartwheels. Lucas Wilde’s parts were recorded during a Skype session straight into the microphone from across the Atlantic in Los Angeles. It also features Salochin’s wife Ybbag. When asking the pair to sum up the record in a few sentences, they stated “It’s meant to make the world appear more optimistic through ill-conceived capturings, what is essentially children’s music for adults, pop music for people who hate pop music, lo-fi for people who hate fi, loose fact.”

Much like their debut, Penrose Winoa, each track is a floating induction of nostalgia lasting no longer than 3 minutes each. A beautifully haunting succession, Lossy encapsulates the sentiments of sitting by the fire during a romantic, olde-worlde winter’s eve.

The album is being released on the 12th of November, 2019 onto a limited edition three tone splatter effect 12”, a two tone splatter 12” and vivid green cassette. Each vinyl will include an A5 two colour riso zine featuring lyrics, photos and artwork.

There is also going to be a super secret album launch show and if you purchase the super secret show bonanza bundle, you will receive your golden ticket in the post, signed and numbered in gold Risograph print, with instructions on how to navigate your way to where Salochin and Revilo have been hiding.
