Local electronic project Potions continues making screwy, immersive synth cuts

Yesterday LA electronic label 100% Silk released a cassette from Potions, the solo synth project from Distractions front man Tom Owens (who also goes by Roland Potions). The seven-song Phased follows Potions' late-2013 LP MIDI Jazz Bass, and from the sound of "Sway Vacay" Owens is still following his own unusual path. Owens collects shimmering lounge keys, coiled percussion, and descending funk synths, then interweaves them in a kaleidoscopic pattern that changes shape throughout the track—by the end it melds together in a tropical haze and floats away with the tide. Take a listen to "Sway Vacay" below, it's today's 12 O'Clock Track, and pick up a copy of the cassette from Midheaven Mailorder.
