ZNR: Traite de Mechanique Populaire

VAROUTAS, GIORGOS: Chronostasis

LAST ReR RELEASES

TAYLOR, HOLLIS: Absolute bird (double CD and 44pp Book).

This is an extraordinary and important work, breathtaking in it’s apparent simplicity but raised on a lifetime of study, thought and contrariness. All 41 tracks are, in one way or another, built around transcriptions or recordings of the pied butcherbird (an endless... more »

ANGELI, PAOLO: Talea

RAZZI, FAUSTO: Per Piano

5 spacious and dynamic works, minimal - in a Feldmanesque rather than minimalist sense - by the remarkable but seldom heard contemporary Italian composer Fausto Razzi, who works in these pieces with dynamics and harmonics to gripping effect; each sound its own state... more »

VITOR RUA & the Metaphysical Angels Do Androids Dream of Electric Guitars? (dbl CD)

A genuinely original guitarist and composer, Vitor is still curiously little celebrated outside his native Portugal. Hopefully this record will change that. It’s a remarkable release for a number of reasons – firstly, CD1, really does have something new to say about... more »

BING SELFISH & THE WINDSORS: Selfish Sentiments

Amazingly, he’s still at large. And this may be Bing’s most massive yet. A dozen great songs, including the rational derangement of all the senses, financial advisor, world without government and never alone with a drone all dressed in nicely judged headlong arr... more »

SCOTT, RAYMOND/The Secret Seven: The Unexpected

Originally released in 1960, with seven (in fact eight) – musicians Scott thought would be immediately recognisable (hence the Secret Seven, because none are named on the LP; you can try to guess) - who cover piano, vibraphone, harmonica, trumpet, guitar, tenor sax... more »

SCOTT, RAYMOND: Kodachrome – Compositions for Orchestra

Milhaud, Poulenc & LE GROUPE DES SIX (Auric, Durey, Honegger, Tailleferre) (dbl CD)

The name has stuck. Six young French composers who came together under the gentle pressure of Cocteau (and to a degree Satie) and – rather like the New Wave after Punk - broke with past orthodoxies though not in very uniform ways; in fact it was hardly a movement at... more »

DEBUSSY, SATIE, APOLLINAIRE, DUCHAMP, RIBEMONT-DESSAIGNES, ARP, PICABIA, HONNEGER, DESNOS, LES SIX,

IVES, ORNSTEIN, COWELL, ANTHEIL, RUGGLES, RUDHYAR, VARESE, SESSIONS, FELDMAN, CAGE, PARTCH, GYSIN. T

An interesting addition to the series. Disc one features Ives’ prescient and (very) quietly iconoclastic Central Park in the Dark (1906), Leo Ornstein’s explosive Suicide in an Airplane (1913), Henry Cowell’s Dynamic Motion (1916) performed by the composer, Ge... more »
