An all-star remix project (Xela! Zelienople! Simon Scott! Steinbruechel! Seaworthy!) for Jasper TX would be more than enough to get my interest. But in its modest way Under the Spire keeps intruding into what passes for LMYE's consciousness - in our recent flick through Ithaca Trio (new EP up, by the way)/worriedaboutsatan, for example, as well as that long overdue trip to southern Texas.
From Jasper's mighty slabs of sound to the fragile delicacies of Jannick Schou, Damian Valles & Shotahirama & wondrous oddities of Ian Hawgood's shruti boxes, UtS is proving pretty essential listening. Here's a dozen SoundClouded tracks (organised a bit by noisiness/intensity) to prove the point...
