Despite its intensity & ambition, its rushing raucousness & huge, mesmerising bass, & the enthusiasm of some respected ears, I haven't yet got into the first instalment of Battler Tyondai Braxton's new solo record - on the contrary.
But others are no doubt as excited about hearing it, in view of his & its lineage, as I definitely was (& am still hopeful of finding wonder & thrills in Central Market - "Stravinsky let loose in a toyshop", according to@joemuggs). So here it is - for a few days only, as always here - for you to judge for yourself.
Warp hype: "Composed, arranged and produced by Braxton, the 7-track set features guitars, vocals, electronics, percussion and the Wordless Music Orchestra, unified to create orchestral music re-imagined for the 21st century, and perhaps the 22nd as well.
Central Market introduces Braxton as an exceptional addition to the world of New Music composers, while maintaining a strong hold on the poly-rhythmic and technically awe-inspiring creations he is already known for.
If you were wondering - instrumentation on ['Uffe's Woodshop'] features vocals/whistling, kazoos, violins, violas, synths, electronics, piano, 6 guitars, bass and drums/percussion."
Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
