Anne-F Jacques & Takuji Naka – ‘Fuyu’ £4(World)
Anne-F Jacques is a sound artist (Canadienne), Takuji Naka is from Japan Island. Fuyu is a 28 minute study into the quiet clockwork of repetition, distance & solitude. Grandad fixing the Dyson then jammin’ cross-wise on the reel-to-reel – grand pere est fixe l’hoover. You’d normally expect this classy affair to appear on the Hideous Replica label, but not in this case. Fuyu is a rare & beautiful thing indeed & one for meditative afternoons or late night lullabillicus. Limited to 58 copies with minimalist on-tape printing & recycled paper insert + non-recycled main insert.
Posset – ‘Cooperation Makes Us Wise…’ £4(World)
A new alignment from the mighty Posset of the North East. Dictaphone scrambling on the furthest dune & a softer, more thoughtful Posset is spotted here. Rustling, re-tuning & muttering his way through a wind-swept landscape under a scarred sonic sky. A huge, cyclopean sound collage with great shifting blocks of vibration – listen loud to unleash the hidden proto-lithic resonance capabilities (LRC). Dirt-grey tapes & ‘halftone carnival’ on-tape stickers. Limited to around 45 copies.
