Current Update - July 2014

NEW RELEASES

DRAKE, BOB: Lawn Ornaments.

After Bob's Drive-In, which, in terms of production was quite restrained and minimal, Ornaments sets off in the opposite direction, piling up great car-crashes of overlapping fragments in a production that makes rococo look like shaker minimalism. Playing only drums... more »

Price: £12.50

MACLEAN, STEVE/MeRCy: Future(s)

This CD of songs, grittily arranged and produced is noticeably more straight-ahead than ReR’s usual releases though it sits comfortably within the broad range of Steve’s tirelessly experimental output. This is a project with a long history: Steve and his main collab... more »

LAST ReR RELEASES

L'ENSEMBL'ENSEMBLE VOLTA, TRISTAN MURAIL: Nuages de Magellan.

Our third collection featuring the ondes Martenot and the most experimental, in part because the Spectralist composer Tristan Murail, to whom this CD is dedicated, was himself a student of - and performer on - the ondes and, in these pieces, he explores some of its ... more »

Other

AMM: Place

Eddie Prevost and John Tilbury, recorded in Lublin in 2012. Beautifully recorded, gold standard AMM concert allowing small, purely acoustic, often hard-to-identify sounds (originating with drums, cymbals and prepared piano) to coexist and converse in an audible spac... more »

Code: MRCD91
Price: £14.50

TAROZZI, SILVIA: Virgin Violin.

Half the CD is taken up by Circle Process, the result of composer Pascal Criton and Silvia Tarozzi working in very close collaboration - and it’s pretty extraordinary. For a long time indeed, it’s not even obvious what it is you’re listening to. There’s a catalogue ... more »

Code: IDA028
Price: £14.50

LOCKWOOD, ANNEA: Ground of Being

Close listening compositions with sound, three of them environmentally sourced and one performed. The performance is of a piano piece from 1996 interpreted by Louis Svard using coins, screws, bubble-wrap, wiring insulation, rubber balls, large stones, a bowl-gong, m... more »

Code: Recitalseven
Price: £14.50

FALCONE, JOHN: In the Wabe.

Duos (mostly) with three excellent pianists (playing keys and quite a lot of inside the body, notably Adolfo Reisin: quite Crumbian). There’s also a typewriter and a cello. And one solo track. Some fine playing, though perhaps a shorter CD would have been better, bu... more »

Code: FALCONE
Price: £14.50

DEBORT: Error loading Photo.

An interesting, quite traditional, Hungarian band who play in the old Eastern rock style - think PPU - but with a contemporary edge. Rare to hear this today, and it’s nicely realised. Back to proper playing deserves to be supported, especially as here where it’s non... more »

Code: DEBORT
Price: £14.50

YOSHIHIDE,OTOMO & LOVE, PAAL NEILSEN: Otomo Yoshihide and Paal Neilsen Love

An occasional bulletin from an area we seldom cover these days (it’s well enough covered elsewhere), this is an excellent, nicely shaped, improvised set with Otomo on guitar – a lot of Sonny Sharrock in there – and Paal drums, always to the point. Recorded live at t... more »

THE GROUP: The Feed-Back

Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza released this electronic beat-driven proto-krautrock-style album under an assumed name in 1970, when they were all in their ‘40s - and it really is a fascinating piece of work as well as being a kind of generic Rosetta ston... more »

MORE NEW STUFF - HOW TO BUILD A LIBRARY

From each update I will select those CDs I think most remarkable or important - those which I think should be in any living library - and offer a discount for anyone buying them all. There will be 2 categories must have and essential history. Offers will be available for either or both together. If you find this essential library idea useful, I will slowly work backwards and compile a list from the whole catalogue.
