Elements of Surprise is the latest release from the techno-pop instrumental trio Delay Tactics, making the band’s remarkable return with their first new album in 38 years. Produced and recorded by the original members Walter Whitney (keyboards, synthesizers), Carl Weingarten (electric and slide guitars) and David Udell (acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards), with special guest Michael Manring on fretless bass.
With guest Michael Manring (bass), a new single “Viola’s Ascent” is now streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and other platforms.
Kay Suzuki (Time Capsule Records / Afrobuddha):
"Deep and transformative. Delay Tactics inhibited a very Amercian aspect, but sounds reminicent of Krautrock and European ambient and balearic movements shine through."
Sally Adams (A Man Called Adam):
"Emotional Rescue keeps uncovering and highlighting not just dub, disco or dancefloor reissues, but most importantly brings projects like Delay Tactics to our attention. Blown away by this new age meets electronica!"
