Josh Augustin Harrowingly beautiful chamber pop/avant-electro experimentation from John Mills-Cockell, arguably one of the most forward-thinking compositional minds of the 70s. After his first band Intersystems folded, he went on to found Syrinx with Doug Pringle on saxophone and Alan Wells playing percussion, playing a number of Canadian coffee shops and going on to link with some big names like Miles Davis, Ravi Shankar, and Robert Moog. Incredible early modular synthesis - this comp is a must-listen! Favorite track: Hollywood Dream Trip.

JoronJoron Beautifully weird, often adventurous and avant-garde electronic soundscapes scavenged from oblivion by the fine folks at RVNGIntl. Favorite track: Tillicum.

about

Syrinx’s path veered from the dominant modes of ‘70s subculture, their version of chamber pop hybridized with wild, whimsical electronic experimentation charting new territory in the under and overground.

Formed by composer John Mills-Cockell after the dissolution of Intersystems, Syrinx’s two adventurous albums, Syrinx and Long Lost Relatives, endorsed the poetic potential of the avant-garde, subverting a turn of the ‘60s trend toward technological pageantry.

Tumblers From The Vault presents these two albums alongside the trio's unheard music, revisiting the Syrinx story and sharing their memorable, mind-bending melodies.
