MACLEAN, STEVE: Ordinary Objects

In this episode, a number of short recordings of household objects and curious instruments become the core thematic material for a range of exquisitely conceived and realised pieces in which the recordings are shaped, stretched, tuned, combined and otherwise manipul... more »

LATE SUBSCRIPTION. Due Late May.

DRAKE, BOB: Arxpilosa

This is such a remarkable piece of work I don’t know where to begin. Anyone who liked the idea-rich, sonically breathtaking and compositionally daring pop music of the ‘60s, will recognise in these 20 perfectly crafted songs a similar mixture of pop-sensibility and ... more »

LAST ReR RELEASES

THE NECKS: Vertigo.

The release of a new Necks album is always news. This is our 12th to date - and their 18th. While most ensembles are driven by personalities, the Necks are powered by an idea. A very large and simple idea - which now seems completely obvious…. but only because the N... more »

KOVAC, BORIS: Times of Day.

We’re very pleased to be releasing this. What Boris does is without parallel or precedent, and he’s been doing it for over 40 years, perfecting a language that is uniquely his own: not chamber music, not world music, not jazz – but demanding performance skills vital... more »

Code: ReRBK2
Price: £12.50

RAVENSTINE, ALLEN: The Pharoah’s Bee.

Allen Ravenstine, erstwhile eminence grise of classic-era Pere Ubu, was one of the best-integrated and least predictable pioneers of analogue synthesis in rock until, in the late 1980’s, he quit both the public and the musical arena to pursue entirely different inte... more »

Code: ReR AR1
Price: £14.50

FRITH, FRED: Propaganda.

Written for theatre in 1987 using a host of avian and mammalian voices, snippets of unidentified musical material and electroacoustic noise- sculpting, as well as invented and real instruments played by Fred. This was a hard time and the mood is intense, lean and no... more »

Code: RERFRO13

FRITH, FRED: Field Days.

14 pieces originally written for dance and other practical situations, here reassigned and reconstructed for choreographer Amanda Miller and the Nederland Dans Theater.These are loop-based, textural, mood pieces, and invocations of spaces and landscapes, with some ... more »

BRAMNK, FALTER: Vagal

It’s been many years since we had anything new from Falter Bramnk, so this is particularly welcome. It’s a collection of 15 pieces, very varied – some highly composed, some sound collages, but all made with intelligence and care. This kind of work is increasingly ra... more »

Code: VAGAL
Price: £14.50

JENKINS, ALAN: Free Surf Music 4

In another of Alan Jenkins’ parallel worlds a classic surf/guitar instrumental band gets into free improvisation; the instrumentals are as great as Alan’s always are, and the band gets free the way such a band would; a unique probe into counterfactual music history,... more »

Price: £14.50

MOORE, R.STEVIE: Verve

A Cordelia re-issue of one of R. Stevie Moore’s classic song-notebook-album collections. For those who don’t know, RSM is a song-writing genius, incurable maverick and a professional enigma. His music is instantly recognisable but impossible to classify - too weird ... more »

MOORE, R. STEVIE: 1952-19??

More Moore. See the write-up for Verve; this is a 27-song compilation taken from various different releases, with some tracks heard here for the first time as far as I can tell. All the recordings predate 1978 though, which when you listen, is sometimes hard to beli... more »

SHATNER'S BASSOON: Shansa Barsnaan

From the same cauldron that brought you Craig Scott’s Lobotomy, this impressive CD manages to collate unusual compositions, wildly diverse musical languages, serious improvisation, great playing and high quality recording. It’s imaginative and highly unusual; there’... more »

Price: £14.50

TOSHIAKI, SUDOH: Mobile Suite

Effectively a solo work by bassist Sudoh Toshiaki, who also plays all the other instruments on this impressive independent release. In 15 parts, this is full-band, complicated, tuneful, prog-inflected material, scarily well arranged and played - that turns on a dime... more »

URBAN SAX: Live in Pori 1984

Back in the glory days, this spectacular, theatrical mass saxophone project could tour. For a while they showed up everywhere, 20 or 30 costumed horn-players, moving around, standing on roofs, surrounding their public and playing a kind of thick, harmonic, minimal ... more »

COXHILL LOL, SIMON EMMERSON, VERYAN WESTON: Digswell Duets

FANFARE POURPOUR and LARS HOLLMER: Karusell Musik

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.
