サンフランシスコの4人組クール・グールズのセカンド・アルバムは前作のプロデュースを引き受けたティム・コーエン(フレッシュ&オンリーズ)に代わり、ソニー&ザ・サンセッツのソニー・スミスがライヴ録音したそう。そういうひねもすのたりなシスコな音。好き。どーぞ。





Golden Retriever is the duo of Matt Carlson (modular synthesizer) and Jonathan Sielaff (bass clarinet, formerly of Au), two musicians who blur the line between sounds created electronically and acoustically. The pair formed Golden Retriever in 2008 and began to develop a language informed by the practices of free improvisation as well as the tradition of American experimental electronic composers like Alvin Curran & David Behrman. Golden Retriever creates music that is creatively challenging and structurally complex while remaining inviting and emotionally dynamic rather than adopting a confrontational stance toward the listener.”Thrill Jockey Records

”Years of research and obsession have resulted in this, the first collection of recordings by the legendary and masterful Greek folk violinist Alexis Zoumbas. Very few pre-war musicians have tapped deeper into the human soul than Zoumbas and this volume presents his most profoundly hypnotic and unearthly pieces, all recorded in New York City from 1926-1928. A deep set of notes is accompanied by previously unpublished photographs as well as original art-work by R. Crumb. Respectfully crafted by Christopher King and Susan Archie for Angry Mom Records.”

Alex Zoumbas “A Lamnet for Epirus 1926-1928″
A Long Gone Sound Production for Angry Mom Records. AMA-04.
Part of the “How The Other Half Hears” Sound Series.







“Song & Dance From Northern Greece, 1928-1958. Featuring sublime and unhinged music rarely heard outside of Northern Greece and Southern Albania, the performances presented in this collection span the range of plaintive, ancient dirges to hypnotic, droning dance pieces.”

 こんなにメロディックなSSWなのに、なぜかいつも倒錯気味な被りものが…どうも好きらしいスティーヴン・スタインブリンク。現在はオリンピア在住ですが、かつてはアリゾナ州フェニックスでフレンチ・クオーターというソロ・プロジェクトで評判に。その頃は「ボクはカートゥーン描きのポップ・ミュージック・メイカー」なんて語ってました。LAKEのアンドリュー・ドーセットもその頃からのコラボレーター。今度のアルバム『Arranged Waves』は、フェニックスで録音した一昨年のアルバム『I Drew a Picture』に続く作品で、オリンピアでアンドリュー・ドーセットと一緒に録音、LAKEのメンバーたちもバックアップした作品で、UKレーベル、Melodic Recordsからの初リリース、日本盤はP-Vineからリリースされています。
