Revelling in one day's plenty while trying not to drown in it, a quick & dirty acknowledgement of thrilling new music from five distinct, diverting voices - Chris Herbert, talkingmakesnosense, Seaworthy, Tone Color & Dentist. Second & last in this list have not featured on LMYE before, but will again...
Chris Herbert coaxes improbable, poignant depths from a Casio - striking shifts of gear & slippery tones in a ravishing, moonlit piece.
Backstory ("As a tribute to its limited charms I thought I'd try and use sounds from the VL-1 for a short piece...").
Photophobic by talkingmakesnosense
From an outstanding new release on Rural Colours (Hibernate's sidekick), Dominic Dixon's affecting, blissily accumulating talkingmakesnosense...
Talkingmakesnosense - Coruscates
Live in Bowral August 2011 by seaworthy
As ever, Cam Webb's lulling, moving sound mounts to something profoundly more than the sum of its trilling, arpeggiated parts.
"Live performance at Lucindas Cafe, Berkelouw Books, 28 August 2011. Guitar, loop pedals and ebow."
Ebowed an' Clear by Tone Color
Framed & freighted by a subtly percussive, field recorded rattle, TC's blithe, swelling tone poem...
"if i could i'd ebow my synths...a bit obsessed with my ebow at the moment..."
fine by dentist
A slo-mo vampy distillation (like a dub techno X-ray) - meditative, inward, sepulchral.
