Peter Kardas - I Saw You LP
Release Date: November 2nd, 2018
I Saw You is the distillation of Right Belief and Right Action, heretofore unknown, privately issue cassettes from 1986 and 1987 by Peter Thomas Kardas. A student of guitar craft and accredited member of The League of Crafty Guitarists, Kardas drew inspiration from Robert Fripp 'sloop-based Frippertronics, but the expansive, introspective washes of synths and repeated phrases and vocalizations are utterly their own thing, conjuring the independence, awe, and isolation of the remote Northern Californian landscapes in which they were created. I Saw You is a co-production – the first new record from Los Angeles-based Yoga Records (Ted Lucas, Woo, Matthew Young) in over two years, and the first release by the newly-inaugurated Echo Ocho label based in San Francisco. Remastered from the original four-track masters by the artist. All songs composed and performed in 1986 and 1987 by Peter Kardas except as noted. Produced and remastered by Peter Kardas. Cover and Layout by Peter Kardas and Aleya Hoerlein. Reissue produced by Tyler Craft and Douglas Mcgowan. "Tip-on" cover; Includes download code; Edition of 500.
