CYCLS’ is Per Martinsen’s 9th album under his Mental Overdrive moniker (that is if you count in his ‘silent’ album ‘Unplugged’, his live-only album ‘ANTI-LBM’, and ‘The Phuture that never happened’ – the Smalltown Supersound compilation of EP’s initially released through R&S Records – which you should). The tracks on CYCLS were initially made available through his own Bandcamp page as a kind of ‘advent calendar’ for the ‘Mayan end date’ of December 21st 2012; a new track was posted each Monday in the weeks counting down to what some believed was to be the end of the world. Having previously lived through the ‘Year 2k-scare’, ‘The Rapture’, and numerous other ‘end-dates’ launced by small indie purveyors of the truth, Martinsen wanted – through the album title – to suggest that there is no absolute deadline to this existence, no matter how much some people seems to require one, but rather that everything runs in cycles – like good vinyl records.
CYCLS will be released on the one year anniversary of the end of the world – on December 21st 2013, and will be available in all digital stores plus as a limited CD edition directly from our webstore.
