Cozy Endings captures the finest moments so far of a two year experiment between the psychedelic rock group Artanker Convoy and the art collective MUX. This CD/DVD set offers the seeker the rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of the aural and visual experience that have only been available to live audiences in limited locations. Artanker Convoy generates the sound: alien waves punctuated by sly rhythms that accommodate a crowd whether it is dancing, watching the visuals or relaxing. MUX brings to bear the combined visual acumen of choreographers, lighting specialists and video artists to create an ethereal landscape through which the band dissolves and dancers flow through.
Welcome to the world of Artanker Convoy. This six combines a range ofmusical influences to create an infectious sound groove, which is aspleasing rhythmically as it is sonically intriguing. The material on thisrecord stems from endless test sessions conducted at a house deep in the“Other Cradle Of Civilization” (BKLYN, NYC) where even intrigued passersbyon the street would often try to poke in their curiously bobbing heads.Mature Fantasy is a culmination of their efforts: an LP that can be enjoyedin any indulgent situation.
The Social Registry 12” series continues with this groove infected barnstormer from Artankers Convoy. This four track EP is sure to get feet moving and hips swiveling with their catchy and irresistible flow (people who have tried resisting have ended up with severe muscle cramps). The six piece convoy continue to come up with new songs that demand being put onto vinyl making it a golden opportunity to start your own dance party wherever you want. Organic Grooves remixes one of the pieces shooting AT into an even higher orbit.But this EP is not only for the floorcutting set. It is layered with a multitude of different influences that set this group apart from the typical club ravers, they compose pieces that allow them to really stretch out. You can sit back and just enjoy this, but your body might have different ideas.
