about

Like every Plasticstatic release, Some Strange Alchemy represents a departure from the sounds of its predecessor. Guitars are present, but this time they provide a supporting role for the electronics that dominate for the duration of the album. More than ever, song structure takes a back seat to sonic beds for succinct lyrical content; eschewing superfluous choruses (and often choruses altogether). For the first time since the band's earliest releases, bits of spoken word occasionally appear. The lyrics may not give it away easily, but this is the most personal album Plasticstatic has released -- and it is their favorite release by far.

We don't care about making money from our music, but we also don't want to devalue art. Feel free to enter "0" to download this release for free. If you do enter "0", please use whatever amount you think this release is worth to support another artist.

The individual track art in the download edition of Some Strange Alchemy is different from the booklet in the physical edition.
