Sons of Kent
A companion piece to yesterday's look at Experimedia's outstanding label sampler - previews of the seven released albums included in LMYE's picks, which if we're being completist also included future releases from Celer, From The Mouth Of The Sun (Jasper TX & Aaron Martin) & Sean McCann...
Anyway, below hear Black Swan's wispily playful but more often saturnine 8 Movements (a movie score playing through a murky, gritty fog...); Jannick Schou's thundering, monolithic Act of Shimmering; Aaron Martin's richly textured Worried About The Fire, which summons unexpected intensities from its traditional palette; Keith Freund's sweetly bucolic Constant Comments (though its darker later pieces appeal more to these ears); & Charles-Eric Charrier's alarmingly twangy but also richly 'post-everything' Silver (Christoph Berg's mesmerising Field Rotation remix of 12 From must also be heard).
Oh, & Lawrence English's jaw-dropping masterpiece The Peregrine, of course (but then it's a re-up, as is Piiptsjilling's still moving Wurdskrieme)...
