These ears relish The Village Orchestra's intelligence, nimbleness & deep sense of texture & space more & more. All the long & tricky way from fairly glitchy drone to a kind of warped, rich 'Steve Reich takes tea in Detroit' post-minimalism, TVO is concertedly, confidently & carefully compelling.
Courtesy of Stuff, the clattering, time-shifting subtleties of Dwyer (NB: lo-res version - full-quality on the new The Dark is Rising EP; hear in full here - the 11-minute dubby joy of the digital-only alternate edit to Tober's warm shimmer, the rightly lauded 2562 'refix' of Afanc...).
Earlier: the ravishing Love Theme From 'Two Man Rumble' (from the often wonderful Et In Arcadia Ego on Highpoint Lowlife; hear in full here.)
Other TVO goodies include: the delicate, swirling Tribute to Martin Crane (from the largely free Highpoint compilation Looking Back Ain't No Way Forward).
A home-compressed version of an apparently Dalston-inspired experiment Live @ Towards the Singularity [LMYE Hack] (more bass might have added to the sense of place... anyway, original in full here).
TVO's very rare & very excellent remix of Posthuman's Asha Grew Wings is on this meaty mix. The original is free here.
Finally, from one of the man's many other personas/participations: the rumbling, rattling The Ratio by The Marcia Blaine School For Girls (from Magnetism, That Electricity... - again on Highpoint, again fully listenable via last.fm & also featuring 20 minutes of TVO bliss: The King of All Tears); & the nicely yearning Sleep Vs. Distance (from Halfway Into The Woods).
NB: here very soon - new material from Marcia Blaine co-conspirator Production Unit...
