Invasive Species
by tourmaline hum

The history of TCFSR and tourmaline hum are closely entwined so it is appropriate that the 100th release on TCFSR Bandcamp sees the return of tourmaline hum, five years since their last album 'system Imperfect
During this time the duo of Lone Cosmonaut and Dental Drill have each created a number of solo releases and contributed to a variety of other projects (and Dental Drill has taken on the day to day running of the TCFSR label) so the tracks for 'Invasive Species' were created intermittently between 2017 and 2021. Nonetheless the album demonstrates a thematic consistency. The album has a darker edge than most of tourmaline hum's previous work.

In addition to high resolution digital. the album is available on CD with gatefold sleeve.
