If Tomaga‘s 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.

Now you can stream Tomaga‘s new record in its entirety on Hartzine, The Attic.

Due to considerable issues with our suppliers, we will unfortunately not be in a position to meet our delivery deadlines for the Housewives album, which was initially planned for 27th October. We have been working extremely hard over the past few days and weeks to get this brilliant record produced as soon as possible. However it is a point of honour and utmost importance to us that each of our releases is delivered to the highest possible standard which both its artists and listeners merit, both from an aesthetic viewpoint and in terms of sound reproduction and quality. We regret that we are not satisfied that this has been the case in this instance. Therefore we are working with new suppliers and a new release date will be announced as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can still listen to the first single from the album, Docile Body, and pre-order the album here. Sincere thanks for your patience and understanding! HITD x
