about this release
Vibrafuzz Family contains a collection of six tracks by Vibrafuzz Family, the umbrella name for projects involving Tim Newman, who explores music covering 1970s Krautrock and Kosmische along with acoustic guitar pieces and traditional Indonesian Gamelan. The album-length collection is grounded in a mellow, contemplative soundworld, with endlessly looping and echoed melodies wound into a variety of moods that reference and use the sounds of Ash Ra Tempel, Tortoise, drum breaks, Ambient and psychedelic fuzz guitar.
The tracks were collected after an alternate version of ‘Freak Ballad’ was submitted for inclusion on a compilation by the Striate Cortex label. Recorded at various locations and times, Vibrafuzz Family showcases a rich variety of sound and provides a series of points of reference for Newman’s work.
