Pitchfork's sister Internet rag Altered Zones has been loving Kansas City lately. Just last month, it featured KC's horror-movie synth machine Umberto on its front-page blog roll, and last week, it reviewed the latest release from Polymer Slug (the musical moniker of Chicago's Adam Tramposh), Cloud Types, out on cassette via Kansas City's Overland Shark label. 


The site's review, which features two tracks off the Cloud Types album available for free listening, is a quick but positive little nod to Polymer Slug's synth-heavy ambient soundtrack to heaven and earth. And though he may be a Chicagoan now, Tramposh has roots that run deep in the Kansas City scene: After attending high school in the area, he rounded out his schooling at KCAI, and debuted the ephemeral world Polymer Slug right here in KC's thriving experimental indie-scape scene.
