    This Just In: Harmony In Ultraviolet

    posted by Emile

    A new Tim Hecker reissue – woooooooooo! This one had a small, poor-quality pressing on an import label in 2006. Now, 8 years later, this is considered the definitive vinyl release. Mastered at 45 RPM and spanning 4 sides, the intended full dynamic range of the album is present, boasting maximum sound quality. It’s wonderful that a small label had the interest to press Hecker to vinyl waaaaaay before he was an NPR name, and it’s also understandable that they couldn’t afford the perfect version of the medium. Thankfully kranky is in the midst of repressing and reissuing titles from their vault. Harmony In Ultraviolet is the first, and I’m stoked to see which others await.

    Tim Hecker – Harmony In Ultraviolet 2LP:
    Listen – “Chimeras” & “Blood Rainbow”
    Harmony in Ultraviolet is Tim Hecker’s sixth album. It is a continuation of Hecker’s interest in spectral communications, noise, impressionist musics, thresholds of listening pleasure/pain, and the limits of digital composition. This album is a significant development of his song-craft, challenging the usefulness of descriptors such as ambient, drone, metal, noise and even electronic music. If references are necessary it could be described as a sonata for the elements, songs of crackling embers, tidal pools, spruce skylines and autumn winds. Gerhard Richter’s abstract paintings are also a fair orientation. Materially speaking, it is a record of whirring drones, whispering fissures, dense disintegrating chords, late-night noise and truth-telling harmonics. Yet this record follows no overarching process, no underlying narrative. It is both a homage for the Italian partigiani and also not at all. It is songs about ghost writing and midnight whispers but then again it isn’t. In many ways this album can be viewed as a work of total destruction, embracing indeterminacy as an aesthetic ideal.” -kranky

    This Just In: Gamel(an)

    posted by Emile

    Hey everyone! Gonna keep this week’s post short for two reasons. First off, we’re gearing up for Audio Junkie’s 3rd Annual Independence Bash, preparing a dope Sweat pop-up shop for all you wax-heads. Second off, out of respect for Thrill Jockey, and not wanting to make a complete ass of myself, I won’t even try to write a full description of OOIOO’s new record, Gamel. Their text is already (of course) spot-on. But I will say that this one has a very wide appeal, crossing and combining classical, tribal, experimental, electronic and even rock elements. Take a listen to a track, read the description, and pick up a copy of the gorgeous deluxe record! Also, don’t forget to check out the weekly in-stock list below the album feature.

    OOIOO – Gamel 2LP:
    Listen: “Atatawa”

    “OOIOO has always created a musical language all its own. Under the leadership of Yoshimi, also a founding member of Boredoms, the group has recorded six albums that have subverted expectations and warped perceptions of what constitutes pop and experimental music. Four years of work went into to making Gamel, their bold new album inspired by the Javanese style of gamelan and the first new music from Yoshimi in over five years. Gamelan is an ancient form that has inspired a great many composers and musicians over the past century, from Erik Satie and Claude Debussy to Mouse on Mars and Sun City Girls. The introduction of this traditional form transformed the group into a super tribe, side-stepping the road between the past and the future. Their focus is not to replicate these ancient styles, but to incorporate them into their consistently inventive, constantly shifting musical frameworks. They take their love of indigenous music into an entirely new dimension by freely weaving organic and electric tones into a vivid tapestry, employing their keen sense of color and texture.

    While previous OOIOO albums have been largely studio creations, Gamel is the most accurate portrayal of the band’s overwhelming, forceful live presence they have released yet. Yoshimi leads her minimalistic rhythm ensemble by making quick, impulsive shifts in tone and attack, the group acting as one mind under her expert instruction. While the gamelan elements will be brand new to many listeners, the band offsets the bizarre with familiar, at times even nostalgic and childlike, melodies. Gamel is euphoric, bursting at the seams with an exhilarating frenzy that is universal yet uniquely their own. OOIOO’s music is reflected in the ear of the beholder, with each listener taking away something different.” -Thrill Jockey
