    Coppice – Epoxy

    ,
    The prolific Chicago based duo of Noé Cuéllar and Joseph Kramer have produced a steady stream of increasingly impressive music for a few years now. This cassette sees Coppice focus less on the electronics and bellows their releases have normally involved, and instead turns the ear back on the recording process itself. The duo played a number of improvisations with various guest musicians, and captured the performances using a tape deck modified to play back and record at the same time. Exactly how this process works isn’t quite clear, but the end result is two pieces of strange, hauntingly oblique music that completely disguise the voice, cello, guitars, etc that are apparently embedded in there somewhere and replace them with a smudged blur of intriguing, strange activity. It’s more a kind of immediate, acoustic musique concrète than improvisation in its natural sense, full of murky but vastly contrasting colours and a wide range of dynamics.

    Coppice – Pied

    ,
    Since late 2009 we have developed compositions using a modified boombox – a tape loop machine that records and plays back simultaneously. Sounds that enter it are released within seconds, sounding gentle feedback. Our first compositions using this boombox and a shruti box marked the beginnings of our collaboration as Coppice, and a phase of up-close entwinement of both instruments in decidedly quiet gestures. Since then, we have expanded our dynamic palette and range of instrumentation to include more bellowed instruments, custom instruments and other electronic processes. Last Fall, we began imagining what has become Pied, a composition for tape, pump organ and the boombox. Its form contrasts the tapes’ fibrous processing with the more tabular appearances of microtonal pump organ transpositions – performed quietly but loudly amplified to bring out interferences and resonances by means of the original microphone techniques. On one hand, Pied is a stark display of our sounds as solo artists, but in a borderline duet: five pump organ sections (recorded in Summer 2011 at Fljótstunga, Iceland) alternating with their boombox mediation and trails.

    Raglani / N.N.N. Cook – Split

    ,
    Pro-duplication and imprinting in black ink on clear shells with gold foil liners. Edition of 200 on high bias tape… On the A side is a new track commissioned specifically for close/far recordings. Sig. to Ether Error seems to channel a distant astral oratorio. Slowly your mind’s eye is activated and begins to build its own temple. Reconciling the synthetic with the organic, Raglani coaxes a state of concord between himself and his circuitry. On the B side the primary sound source is an electronic unit, the Meridian Box, custom designed and built by Joseph Kramer. It consists of six oscillators with independent pitch controls and electrodes controlled by body resistance. Otherness Figments immediately sweeps you into its current, enveloping your body with hum and crackle. Punctuated by blasts and tears in time, jarring moments begin to smear and stretch. As you pan across your barren destination, mirages dance across the landscape. Abruptly, your Dionysian journey ends in repose.

    Gideon Wolf – I Am Wolf

    ,
    Limited edition of 75 c40 produbbed and imprinted cassettes. Pro printed double sided J card… I am Wolf is a departure from my debut album Paper released on Fluid Audio last summer. The modern classical elements of my previous album (piano and cello) have been replaced with vocals and a more dynamic use of electronic beats and ambient textures. The contrasts of hard and soft are starker on these tracks and the ambient elements are holding together what might spill over into chaos at any moment. At the outset of this album it was clear for me that I wanted to go further with the treatment and use of my voice which I had begun to explore on my first album and to see where writing lyrics and singing would take me. On I am Wolf the voice or song is used primarily as an instrument, and although it often threatens to come forward I’ve rarely allowed it to break free from the other repetitive elements of the music. Neon Marks is probably the only really recognizable song on the album but even so all the tracks here have been informed or created around structures and ideas that began at one stage with the voice. If Paper had been about movement and traveling through urban spaces, then I would say that this album represents traveling at night and the darker imaginary spaces these nocturnal worlds create.

    Moon Zero – Tombs

    ,
    Black cassette in clear cases with cover art inlay, limited to 50 copies… Recorded onto an 8-track at St George In The East Church in Shadwell, London last October, ‘Tombs’ is the debut release for Tim Garratt under his Moon Zero moniker. This four track EP introduces Tim’s approach to noise-drone, incorporating melody and structure, delivered through processed instrumentation and filtered electronics. ‘Tombs’ is, especially for a debut, a bold and confident musical statement, which reimagines the possibilities of processed organ and laptop sounds in a live context. EP-opener ‘Dalyan’ builds from slowly wavering layers of sound into a crumbling, decaying wall of fuzzed-out, peaking noise, which in turn builds again into ever-moving blocks of chopped loops and feedback, absorbing the listener completely into Moon Zero’s musical space. Yet the real power of the EP is in the fact that Moon Zero’s compositions include all of the elements included above, without ever attempting to sound ‘like’ other noise / ambient / drone artists – the entire EP flows seamlessly from form to form, constituting of some of the most unashamed and fresh takes on musical ideas that are so often presented as tired, genre-defining clichés. A remarkable listen.

    The Fractal Skulls / Adam Willetts

    ,
    70 c40 electric blue cassettes in yellow library cases. 3 colour, double-sided risograph sleeves designed and printed by James Hines… Fractal Skulls is a High Wycombe, UK based master of the kosmische. His side of the tape follows on from a full length on Subexotic and cassettes on Blue Tapes and Reverb Worship. Unashamedly mellow, ‘Telepylos’ melds the highest regard for the likes of Terry Riley & Cluster with a hint that we should be questioning everything. Adam Willetts is from Christchurch, New Zealand. Over the last few years he has been quietly releasing a slew of clever electronics for imprints such as Fictitious Sighs and Dungeon Taxis. ‘Sandyford Lines’ marks a step into the minimal. Super focused synth action comes to the fore whilst brushing aside any sense of melody, recalling the tinkering of early electronic experimenters Raymond Scott and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Both chaps have skilfully acquired the knack of using repetition to move you forward into new spaces.

    Yousei Suzuki – The Scene From A Frame

    ,
    Housed in screen printed hand numbered Bradpaks in Edition of 100. No two copies alike… Yousei Suzuki is a young steel string guitarist from Osaka Japan. ‘The Scene From A Frame’ is the follow up album to his release on Senri Records last year entitled ‘Broken Woods & Some Prayers’. A continuation of his experimentations with broken guitars, zither, and piano. The songs on this album were all recorded either live or in one take. Suzuki’s compositions are sometimes full, fluttering bustling tales told with ringing steel strings- but they’re also sometimes sparse, songs scraping together shy offerings that tiptoe in, and with their presence loop slow & solemn incantations ’round us, calling for blessings by makers unnamed. In some tracks like “Full Moon Strings” and “Broken Woods,” these petitions are deconstructed and, growing hopeful in their clarity they burst into a sedated, stumbling kind of laughter. There is a purity here that perhaps can only be found in the oblations of someone hailing from the opposite end of the earth. We hear Suzuki’s words for a bit on “What Visible,” the only track with vocals, but as most of us will never speak Japanese we can only listen to his melody, his strain, his pitch and be left with an understanding of whatever wordless reflections emerge from our own mediations on these delicate tones. – Melody O’Hearn

    Sublamp / Giovanni Lami – Split

    ,
    Edition of 50 hand-numbered ferrik cassettes.. A spontaneous first meeting between two young artists resulting in forty minutes of experimental music covering a wide spectrum of drone sounds. From granular synthesis and walls of guitar distortion to Jerusalem’s filed recordings and dark soundscapes, this release continues Felt’s catalog in an unpredictably cool way. The idea for this project came during a conversation with the Italian musician/photographer Giovanni Lami (b.1978) about a possible release and I quickly brought to the table the idea of inviting Ryan along for a split release. Los Angeles based Ryan Connor (b.1979) under the alias ‘Sublamp’, who has been delivering top drone sounds since 2008, was then asked to join and this album came to life. It was really interesting for me to see those two artists interact as their music careers are surprisingly parallel but in the same time so distant. The tracks they created for this split provide a great opportunity for us to get some insight into their techniques and style, and to document those two promising artists at their artistic take-off. I would like to leave the invitation open for Ryan and Giovanni to come together again in a few years for the second part of this split; it will be really exciting to see how their sound has evolved. – Felt

    Software Wolf – Spit & Image

    ,
    Edition of 50 hand-numbered ferrik cassettes… I would like to stress how great collaborating with an artist like Quinn has been. It took us months to complete this project and I haven’t met a better, more open or positive person to collaborate with. We would critique each others work, pushing the project in a totally new and unexpected direction within a 5 minute conversation, but in such a smooth, cooperative and positive way that it was hard to remember that there had ever been an argument in the first place. I believe these experiences are reflected throughout the project musically & visually. I discovered Software Wolf uploaded on a lonely Soundcloud profile with a couple of followers and two or three odd beat-driven songs. At first I was really confused. Who made these awesomely weird tunes? It took some effort, but after several messages and emails their creator was found. The album took some time to get compiled. Quinn and I tried our best to pay close attention to detail throughout the project. The idea of focusing the visual aspect of the release on Korea came a bit after we started the project. Quinn is located in Korea, for now, and both of us are really interested on the modern history of this troubled place. It made total sense to touch the subject somehow.

    Analepsis / The Last Tram

    ,
    This is a split release featuring the work of two young, Berlin based sound artists: Preslav Literary School (aka Adam Thomas) and Will Gresson. The former, originally from the UK, has toured his multi-layered tape collages throughout Europe, sharing stages with the likes of Aki Onda, Machinefabriek, Gudrun Gut & AGF, Anton Bruhin, Leif Elggren and Sudden Infant. The latter, a New Zealander, forms half of NZ/Italian drone duo Fausto Maijstral and works extensively on exploring the relationship between urban infrastructure systems and the residents affected by them. Gresson’s side captures the feel of a cold winter in a bustling city, recorded on a bedroom floor late one evening it ebbs and flows but never quite strays from the cover of night. If you listen close enough you can hear the sound of an ambulance rushing by, there for a moment and then forgotten to the city. Thomas’s side is no less evocative – a live collage of old tapes and spoken word recordings mixed in realtime alongside an unintrusive synth part.

    Darryl Burke Mahoney – Untitled

    ,
    Cassette format with risograph printed artwork in a limited edition of 100 copies… The sounds found on Darryl Burke Mahoney’s first release are reminiscent of his hometown in Lachine, Quebec where the spectre of industry looms upon the lower avenues and the dormant factories present a rich palimpsest. There is expansive decay, a resistance to gentrification, as though suburban teenagers crawl inside these crumbling spaces to waste away the years. A happenstance of sounds seep from these abandoned, commercial properties: water trickling through a concrete ceiling, the fumbled rhythms of a broken air conditioner, a stripped bolt scuttling through a tin pipe. Even the lights of Mahoney’s samplers gleam through a veneer of impenetrable dust settling among the nocturnal emissions of traffic lights and the asthma of train-whistles in the distance. There is a curiosity to revisit this document, to witness the exquisite dissolution of its interiors. Items previously observed will suddenly seem moved or misplaced. Still, other machinery will be immovable but ever-changing. A story written in a corrosive language, an impermanent literature.

    Leedian – Stunting Noise

    ,
    Limited edition of 50 numbered copies that come with download insert cards… Coming from Toon, a small Japanese town which belongs to the Ehime province, Hitoshi Asaumi delivers very unexpected sounds when compared to contemporary beat culture. Leedian disguise has been around for two years now and listening through his work one can find it difficult to categorize his music. From extreme noise, he switches fast to melodic pop backed by organic beat, then quickly back to the extreme noise . There is an inevitable innocence deriving from his tracks, mainly with regards to their length. His music feels like an “arranged marriage” of the punk approach to composition with experimental electronic sounds. The result is rewarding and raw sounding. Jazz and electronic influences melting together in a chaotic doom-sounding noise. This album is a collection of his best moments making music as Leedian. While his sound texture remains constant throughout the album, differences in composition alter the mood deliberately from start to finish offering a deep insight into Leedian’s work

    Magic Towers – N4

    C32 – black cassette / clear flexy polycase / cover printed on Risograph – blue/orange fluo / limited to 100 copies… Magic Towers is a duo born in Vittorio Veneto and active from summer 2010: two nomad and egocentric knights. They use synths, delays, tape echoes and space sounds in order to compose or improvise ambient and delayed atmospheres and trips. The project is based on the inner observation and the visual contemplation of the sound. The image of the Tower – connected on one hand with the journey, the passage and the transit, on the other with the static position – reflects the attitude of MT: an observer looking for the right observation point. Space ambients, rhythms from the deep, melodic inserts and an evil beat out: in contemplation of the immense Void. N4: recorded in Milano during the All Soul’s Day 2011. It’s the fourth part of the “Magic Trips” series.

Material (and non-material) sources include: baoding balls, brass censer, feedback, porcelain vase, tape, voice, wine glass, and wooden flute. Wu Wei II: Impulse is the first 18 minutes excerpted from a 40-minute improvisation on electric organ. The meditative state involved in the creation/listening process and the immersive quality of engaging in the perception of the beats, overtones, and shading are its focus.

    Appalache – Fue

    ,
    If you’ve ever had the chance to travel, you know that it changes your life. After a year on the road, from the jordanian dunes to the asphalt of Nashville, Julien Magot locked himself in his appartement to record ‘Fue’, the first album of his lonely adventure Appalache. If you’ve ever had the chance to travel for a long-time, you know how hard it is to fight against monotony of a daily life. This is maybe the start of this story, a way to escape from the outside world’s oppression, a dream about a dream inside a dream, where flashbacks can be possible futures. More than a story, ‘Fue’ can be the painting of a luxuriant desert under the moonlight, maybe like the one on the Barn Owl’s Lost In The Glare cover. 8 songs for 8 colors, leaded by an electric guitar and indians spirits, both hunting for serenity…

    Cleared – Breaking Day

    ,
    Breaking Day is the second full-length album from Cleared, the Chicago-based duo of Steven Hess and Michael Vallera. While their self-titled debut album (Immune 014, Jan 2011) found the duo exploring themes of stasis and texture, Breaking Day represents a huge development in the scope and overall style of the project. Where previous material had been slowly assembled from dozens of individual recordings and experiments, this new collection of songs was born from the raw documentation of Cleared’s live performance in the studio. Elements of noise, drone, and psychedelia are filtered through a dark, unifying lens that ranges from relentless rhythmic assault to monolithic tonal sculpture. Dueling rhythms of drums and sampled percussion, walls of undulating soundscapes, and hypnotic guitar are deployed with heightened intensity and force. If Cleared’s first record presented a frozen, gray-washed realm of ambient sound, Breaking Day represents its inverse: A blackened subterranean space of alien movement and activity; a premonition of an assault from the unknown.

The stench comes not from distant swamps, putrescent and green in their small wakes, or the mounds of bone matter and meat made dust underfoot. This waft of hidden and yet all-too demanding treasures lifts itself steadily from the bated, beating wings of the Bird, on its eternal voyage somewhere far past home.

    Birds of Passage – Winter Lady

    ,
    Perfect for the wintertime, Alicia Merz’ Birds of Passage project comes from another world, separate from our own. This is an world similar to ours, but everything is just slightly off. A constant overcast sky, filled with birds drifting through these skies leaving long trails of gold and blue ribbons. It’s a fantastic and ethereal plane.

    Beth Kleist – Drei

    ,
    The third album of the NQ / Teamforest collaboration: limited tape edition of 100… Recorded in a makeshift lakeside studio, Beth Kleist’s Drei is the sometimes psychedelic, sometimes pastoral third album from Nils Quak and Philipp Bückle. The album haunts and teases its way through mostly guitar, percussion, and electronics without settling long into an idiom before leaping headlong into a new idea. Lovers of kraut rock, post-spectral drone, twee electronica, and especially postrock in all of its shifting facets will find pockets of bliss in Drei.

    Bible & Henry – Marker/Magnet (2 x Tape)

    ,
    Originally released individually, Bible & Henry’s Marker and Magnet are two complimentary volumes in a set that covers quite a bit of ground, and covers it quite masterfully. The duo’s work here is mostly in the area of electroacoustic improvisation and musique concrète. Jeremy and Jason manage to utilize the tiny musical space they’ve allotted themselves and stretch it out to a length of over two hours. Typically I’d say this is an accident waiting to happen, but these fellows have pulled it off with class to spare. Never does anything sound recycled or looped, never is there a moment where the music returns to a point. It is always winnowing, sifting, threshing through waves of electronic abstractions and obscured acousmatic sounds. The result is a confounding experience in which I find myself searching for some familiarity and finding little. There are moments of potential clarity, but those are seldom and surprising when they arrive. The rest of these compositions are steeped in mystery and endless engagement. This is not background music; please listen with care.
