Joe Baiza/Jason Kahn/Felix Gebhard – ‘Two Duos Double’ CS
„Two Duos“ sees Saccharine Trust / Universal Congress Of head honcho Joe Baiza teaming up with former band mate Jason Kahn on tape one and berlin based baritone ambient boy Felix Gebhard on tape two. The results stagger in as some free form jazz inspired guitar/drums and guitar/guitar/synth meanderings that embrace nonchalant improvisations as well as eerie modulations of what could have been … well, maybe noise rock songs if played as a full band. But all in all, this sounds concisely and coherently composed as well – music that follows a long tradition and shows a lot of knowledge for what might come. Hand-numbered double cassette in an edition of 60.
Hellvete – ”t Land van den Akker’ CS
´t Land van den Akker finds Glen Steenkistes HELLVETE project in a soothing, friendly mood. The six tracks on this newest cassette feature harmonium, banjo and acoustic guitar, and it is quite apt to say these are some of the „poppiest“ tunes he’s ever released. Music to have your first beer to after a nice cup of tea in the early afternoon, on sunday. Limited edition of 50 with handnumbered piece of cardboard featuring an ugly german stamp from the 90s.
