Micah Blue Smaldone. The Ring of The Rise (immune, 2013)
The Ring of the Rise continues Micah’s relentless efforts to mine future truths from the past, this time hauling out a slab of marble spanning the 1950’s through the 1970’s, veined with slapback echoes, plate reverbs, tube equipment, and hefty old American iron. The sounds are both new and familiar, tugging at a collective consciousness particular to our era, where the past clamors for reconciliation with the future. .
"Birthed between the burning fields of Kansas and the surreal landscape of the New Mexican desert, Black Vines is a dense layering of monophonic drones, delayed sitar and large scale cello arrangements.
"With Spoicke, United Bible Studies continues its examination of textured improvised stillness, or what Simon Cummings referred to as a “loose weave tapestry, where broad gestures sit comfortably beside more intricate, filigree passages.” Recorded for the 2009 VPRO festival in Amsterdam, Spoicke introduces baritone Scarborough-Fair minstrelsy and whirling electronic dervishes in the same breath. Billowing curtains of harp and voice are incised with guitar, percussion and lyrical aphorisms. Not so much inventive as it is self-inventing, and not so much electroacoustic as it is dreamscaped and CTRL+Shifted, this deceptively complex composing ethic will reach out to the acoustic purists and the electron snipers in almost equal measures. And don’t even say the word genre out loud."
Ø+yn & A Full Cosmic Sound. Split CS (BYM records, 2016)
Siempre es grato tener noticias de los colegas y mas si vienen acompañadas de sonoros como este.
Me recuerda a la siempre grata era dorada del krautrock, aletazos Popol Vuhianos, un revival de Amon Duul.... un gran disco para nostalgicos del rock alemán.
Los completos sonidos Los completos sonidos en Cromo Los compleos sonidos en Obsidiana blanca y negra va viajando la novia a la boda en el centro el cartilago en el mapa el sol y al costado el minero sonriendo
