Centagon Records Announces Inaugural Release: Terror Wave by Air Jackson


July 4, 2016

Centagon Records, a new independent record label based in Seattle, has announced its inaugural release: Terror Wave, the full-length debut LP by Air Jackson. The entire album will be available on digital and vinyl on July 16, 2016 for Centagon’s appearance at Channel Fest, Seattle’s first annual celebration of local record labels.

In anticipation of the album’s launch, Centagon is streaming two tracks from the LP on Soundcloud and Bandcamp effective immediately: Prelude to Everything Being Okay and Summer Stars.

Over the course of four years, producer/keyboardist PJ Anderson and original guitarist Louis Jones recorded Terror Wave in Anderson’s home studio, using a Tascam 388 analog tape recorder. It is an introspective album about heartbreak, anxiety and moving to a new city. Its sound, built on synths, guitars and drum machines, is rich and complex, ranging from lush and atmospheric to nightmarishly psychedelic. Guitarist Miguel Diaz (Jetman Jet Team, Coke Nails) replaced Jones in 2016.

While using a combination of digital and analog instrumentation in recording, the vinyl edition of Terror Wave was tracked, mixed and mastered using entirely analog techniques. Both sides were cut directly from the analog tapes by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering in Portland, Ore.

Terror Wave is now available for pre-order at http://airjackson.bandcamp.com
