Frankness redoubled

Two Frank Bretschneider tracks in as many days? Unless you're living very large indeed, a better offer is unlikely to come your way this week.

Following yesterday's beguiling pik, from the immense & immensely rich TU M'P3 Soundtrack for Images archive (see here & here), today brings the Raster-Noton co-founder Live at LISTEN/VISION. This workout has his usual intricacies, but freights them in a somewhat unrelenting, gun-ship metal feel - with, to me, an uncharacteristic & refreshing roughness to it.

The performance is taken from Raster-Noton Live at Listen/Vision. Characterised at frankbretschneider.de as "deep-listening techno for your body", the EP also includes a pounding piece by Olaf Bender & a quite superb one by Bretschneider, Bender & Carsten Nicolai's R-T supergroup Signal...

The Bretschneider piece also features in a nicely eclectic new sampler from Christopher Willits' Overlap.org. The collection also contains dubby ambientronicist Chris McNamara (covered here previously), as well as gentle colourist Miroque, subtle noisemonger Nakamura Hiroyuki & Willits' endearingly strident post-jazzers Flossin.

NB: higher-res versions of these tracks available here.

NB: all releases from Overlap.org

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
