Ross Baker “Periphery” (TR024), Released September 1, 2014 in a Guided Products recycled card sleeve with attached art, handstamped cd-r and a random series of card. Limited edition of 50.
“Periphery” is the follow up to “Two Suns Were Visible in The Sky” on the Flaming Pines label and the recent Middlemarch “Wolf Hall” release on Time Released Sound. Described by Ross as “a mini album containing material recorded at the same time as “Two Suns…” which were deemed too personal or too claustrophobic to fit that record’s vast scope”.
Talkingmakesnosense is Dominic Dixon of Glasgow who has been making music in one form or another since he was a child. Most recently, he’s been releasing records on the now sadly defunct Benbecula Records, and now a new album on Rural Colours.
Coruscates consists of four long-form tracks, each tipping past the ten-minute mark.
An edition of 100, CD and cover packaged in a translucent envelope.
Jonathan Canupp is a name you should know but probably don’t, but then again might. He records under Ten and Tracer and I’ve been into his records for ages and ages now. Back when I was checking out early net label releases, Jonathan came up as one of two people whose work in their entirety I just fell in love with. And funny how he actually works with the other artist now and lives in the same damn city – the person being a certain Jason Corder (offthesky, Juxta Phona) no less. He makes wonderful IDM music and in fact I may have asked him years ago now to make us a ‘meaty beaty’ record. And along he comes with the very cheek of making some sublimely evolved, subtly woven record using violin, tape machines, guitars, maybe some keyboards and other stuff too. Friendless Now is a beautifully realised work, and one of my favourite Ten and Tracer releases to date.
