  • The Sea And Cake – Any Day (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1618141 The Sea And Cake deliver a refreshingly intimate collection of elegantly
    arranged, singular pop songs. For over two decades and 11 albums, The
    Sea And Cake have honed a sound all their own, comprised of delicate,
    intertwining guitar patterns, syncopated rhythms, and airy melodies.
    Masters of subtlety, their compositions have continually evolved – through
    minute alterations in texture, unusual approaches to lyrics, and creative
    production choices. Any Day is testament to The Sea And Cake’s artistry,
    song craft, and utterly unique sound. The results are intimate songs that
    speak to the searcher in all of us. Through shifting instrumentation and
    sonic exploration, the band invites you into a world that is both familiar
    and unexpected.
    Written and recorded following the departure of bassist Eric Claridge, Any
    Day is The Sea And Cake’s frst album recorded as the trio of Sam Prekop,
    Archer Prewitt, and John McEntire. Since the release of their last album
    (2012’s Runner), the band have, in addition to shows, been creatively very
    busy: Prekop focusing on solo modular synthesizer and soundtrack work,
    including an acclaimed collaboration with artist David Hart, McEntire’s
    recording and touring with Tortoise, and maintaining a busy schedule as
    a recording engineer and producer, and Prewitt’s work as a cartoonist and
    illustrator, in addition to duo performances with Prekop. The band, still
    actively performing with bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise, Brokeback),
    were inspired by the challenge of composing as a smaller unit.
    Any Day captures The Sea And Cake’s distinctive aural alchemy, melding
    longing melancholy with hopeful excitement. In other hands the
    combination seems impossible, but for The Sea And Cake, it’s effortless.

  • Emptyset – Borders (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1607503 Emptyset is the innovative electronic duo of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas.
    The duo composes within a complex set of self-imposed parameters or rule
    sets and the results of their expeditions on Borders are at once minimal and
    visceral. Focusing on shifting timbral changes over melody, Emptyset’s work is
    an exploration of the relationship between rhythm, texture and space.
    The pair shares a history in Bristol’s underground music scene as well as an
    impressive list of production credits. Ginzburg, now Berlin based, runs a
    network of record labels including electronic music label Subtext and Arc
    Light Editions, whose reissues include a work by Arthur Russell. He’s a prolific
    producer and remixer for both independent and major labels, with diverse
    projects such as Faint Wild Light, Ginz and more recently Bleed Turquoise.
    Purgas, now based in London, founded the We Elude Control label in 2009,
    a curated collection of rare experimental music. Purgas is an artist, writer and
    curator who has presented projects with Tate, Whitechapel and Serpentine
    Galleries, and he is also an active promoter of electronic music in eclectic
    spaces from a carpark to a Modernist pavilion.
    Each project’s framework and parameters dictate how the sound or performance
    evolves. In the past, Emptyset have explored the ways in which the sonic
    and spatial interact within different architectural contexts: often site-specific
    locations such as the decommissioned Trawsfynydd nuclear power station in
    North Wales, or the neo-gothic Woodchester Mansion. Borders takes a different
    approach, centering around the performative and the performer. Having each
    created their own tactile instruments, a six-stringed zither-like instrument and
    a drum, Emptyset focuses on how organic sounds interact with the analogue
    processes that have defined their work to date.
    Contrasting typical approaches to making electronic music, Emptyset set out
    to emphasize live performance rather than creating sequences within devices.
    While Purgas and Ginzburg utilize vintage analogue electronics, compressing
    and distorting the signals, the album itself is performed entirely live, where
    subtle movements make for substantial changes in sound.
    From the very first track, “Body,” one can hear how the physicality of the
    instruments have imbued the sound’s texture. The physical characteristics of
    the metal strings create a layer of dynamic juxtaposition to the grinding timbres
    emerging around them. The broody “Ascent,” features the album’s clearest
    call-and-response between the stringed instrument and the drum, barking and
    thudding back and forth at one another. Evident in tracks such as “Border”
    and “Speak,” Emptyset uses basic rhythmic structures drawn from an array of
    broad cultural practices, expressed neutrally and without overemphasis on the
    source. Taken as a whole Borders distills the duo’s inspirations to their essence
    and the resulting music is as raw as it is captivating.

  • Brokeback – Illinois River Valley Blues (LP+MP3)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1607954 A sense of place has been essential to the music of Brokeback since guitarist/bassist
    Douglas McCombs frst launched the project in 1995. Initially conceived as a solo
    outlet, the Chicago group has taken on new dimensions over the past two decades,
    morphing from the lean, pastoral ambience of the frst album, Field Recordings
    from the Cook County Water Table, to the more muscular, taut arrangements
    and dynamic swells of the last release, Brokeback and the Black Rock, for which
    McCombs assembled a new quartet lineup. Each album develops with exacting
    detail, revealing McCombs’s gift for dialing in the essence of a mood, feeling, or
    distant locale with a handful of reverb-laden guitar tones, elegant and sustained,
    strategically placed and sparingly deployed. The instrumental landscapes he creates
    on Illinois River Valley Blues are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier
    soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory.
    McCombs’s singular approach to guitar and bass, characteristic of his work with
    Tortoise, is expertly enhanced here by James Elkington (Tweedy, Steve Gunn) on
    second guitar (moving over from drums on the last record). The two salute one of
    McCombs’s favorite bands, Television, with latticed dual leads on the stately yet
    aggressive “On the Move and Vanishing,” while Elkington’s subtle layers of pedal
    steel and organ burnish more ruminative forays like “Andalusia, IL” and “Ursula.”
    Their intertwining ?ights are anchored by the sturdy yet versatile rhythm team of
    bassist Pete Croke (Exit Verse, Tight Phantomz) and drummer Areif Sless-Kitain
    (the Eternals), the newest member of Brokeback.
    Thematically this is McCombs’s most personal offering yet, re?ecting on his early
    years growing up along the Illinois River corridor between Peoria and Chicago.
    Though the inspiration is McCombs’s, the execution is wholly a group effort. With
    the same instrumentation and mostly the same lineup as the previous album, the
    band stretches its leader’s eternal fascination with the roots of American guitar
    music in bold new directions. A serpentine mystique runs through “Rise, Fernanda,
    Rise!,” and “Cairo Levee” conjures a desert atmosphere closer to the Sahara than
    the American southwest. Side one of the album closes with a moody, meditative
    take on “Spanish Venus,” a ballad written by cornetist and sometime Brokeback
    collaborator Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Exploding Star Orchestra). “I
    could hear Brokeback doing the tune from the moment I heard him workshopping
    it with Pulsar Quartet at a little cocktail bar in Logan Square,” says McCombs.
    Several songs feature lush, multi-layered vocals by Amalea Tshilds (the Paulina
    Hollers), who made a deep impression on McCombs with a spellbinding a cappella
    performance a couple years ago. “I often imagine female vocals on Brokeback
    records, but I wanted it to be someone that I have personal history with, someone
    who can nail it, not to mention someone who I know digs the music,” he says.
    “That’s why Mary Hansen (Stereolab) sang on all those earlier records and why I
    wanted Lea for this.”
    Illinois River Valley Blues is a winding, wistful travelogue that not only captures
    darker textures but mines their depths. That’s been part of McCombs’s vision for
    Brokeback from the start: “To me a song is not worth writing if it doesn’t have a
    strong sense of melancholy,” he says
