If Futura Grotesk is the wakeful thought form, Familiar Obstacles is the unconscious interzone, evoking numerous musical hinterlands; fusing studio experiment, field recording, and tonal spectrum into something that by turns resembles musique concrete, imaginary soundtrack and library music.
Initially released on cassette in April 2015 on Blank Editions, Familiar Obstacles is now being released on vinyl for the very first time.
