    When we went through the boxes of vinyl to assemble the last copies of the Disco colored vinyl 3xLP (which is now sold out) we discovered that there were a few of each record pressed right before they added the color into the vinyl pot, which led to this weirdly attractive nearly colorless vinyl edition. Only 6 copies exist. This edition includes a larger (13" x 19") version of the poster that came in the original edition of Disco.

    Along with the pre-color vinyl we also found a stack of extremely hot pink (rather than plum) pressings of LP 3 of Disco which we assembled into this edition of 4 with LPs 1 and 2 pre-color and LP 3 extremely hot pink. This edition also ships with the large size (13" x 19") wolf heads poster.

    Along with the other oddities about this pressing, the numbers of each LP pressed of the total 3 came out very uneven so we are offering a couple single vinyl editions made specially for those who want just one of the three; with alternate covers and hand written center labels. These are LP 1: Manifesto, Muscle Machine, Disorienting Shapes and Fluid Feline Forms on a very dark orange LP with hand written center labels that say "Oranges Only".

about

Voluminous Arts happily announces its third official release, a 12 track digital album and accompanying 3xLP limited 3 color vinyl edition entitled “Disco” by Gavilán Rayna Russom’s elusive alias Black Meteoric Star. This is not a Disco record. The title deliberately troubles the music biz’s incessant tendency to hierarchize genre classification over the experience of listening. If you must categorize these mutant sounds think of them as a proposed alternate score for those long, caffeinated sessions in Abby Sciuto’s forensics lab, the soundtrack to a heavy workout in the Westchester Danger Room or perhaps the musical accompaniment to deep body investigations of your own ancestral memories. What this record really is, and why it’s called “Disco” has to do with the layering of time and life energy present in the spaces where we have traditionally danced to music which are sometimes called Discos. From the pounding urgency of “Muscle Machine” through the unbridled night vision romp that is “Fluid Feline Forms” and the shimmering investigations of “Whispers Between Worlds” to the extended lazer pointer focus of “I’m Unmelting” this record lays out a broad slab of practice-based research into the ghosts we connect with on the dance floor. Whether it be through partying in former industrial buildings, contested spaces of labor built on lands violently appropriated from indigenous people, uncomfortably inhabiting vacuums in queerness left by the AIDS epidemic, lifting lineages through sampling, or the relentless cycle of whitening that accompanies dance music’s march into the market, our experiences in the Disco have been permeated by the spectral and the haunted. Through rhythm and frequency, organized over time, this music blurs the veil between the living and the dead inviting those who move to it to connect with experiences beyond that false binary. What you have here is another fantastic Black Meteoric Star record, as always made without multitracking or overdubbing, recorded directly from single live takes. It is is utterly consistent with all that name has come to mean, but on “Disco” Black Meteoric Star’s vision has been allowed to expand into an almost mythologically epic space. Ancestral time works differently. Settle in and absorb the frequencies. As the closing track suggests, the virtual Disco these sounds evoke is for “Freaks Only”.
