A positively good album from Negativland


Perhaps you haven’t noticed, I know that I hadn’t, but Negativland has a new album out. It was released on July 15th on the group’s own Seeland label, and it is called Negativland Presents Thigomatic. It is comprised of seventeen tracks over the space of just over thirty nine minutes and is the first Negativland album that features actual songwriting and song arrangements as well as the samples, loops and found sounds that have categorized the group’s other previous releases. The album was composed by Mark Holser with help from San Francisco musician Thomas Dimuzio and others.

Thigmatic comes with a 36 page full color booklet featuring song lyrics and art work. It’s very nice and you should go out and buy it immediately.
