C. Spencer Yeh's lo-fi pop reissued on De Stijl; SF bands burn with envy

Following in the footsteps of major influence Brian Eno, C. Spencer Yeh (who is perhaps known best for his Burning Star Core project) has always involved himself in a wide array of diverse musical endeavors, from abrasive noise to atmospheric drone to free improv jazz. As of late, De Stijl Records has shown specific interest in Yeh’s rare but substantial rock/pop ventures, which are usually released under the moniker C. S. Yeh.

After recently releasing the In the Blink of an Eye B/W Condo Stress 7-inch, De Stijl is now reissuing Yeh’s formerly out-of-print one-sided LP, which is appropriately titled Songs 2002 and features Yeh’s tamer side within traditional pop structures (though featuring just as much imagination and wit as Yeh’s wilder recordings). Songs is reissued on “double A-sided cassette” and is just in time to show those San Francisco beachy fuckers how real lo-fi pop is done.

Songs 2002 tracklisting:

01. The Butter Day
02. New Ending Intruder
03. Lose Air Flip Backwards I
04. Lose Air Flip Backwards II
05. Remember
