Nicole Mitchell: Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds (FPE, 2017)

Nicole Mitchell: Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds

Chicago flautist Nicole Mitchell’s latest album (recorded live at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago in 2015) is based on a concept of combining dualities, considering the idea of smashing utopia and dystopia together. Acoustic and electric instruments are juxtaposed in order to explore an advanced society in harmony with nature. The album seems to be primarily acoustic, with strings, percussion, and Japanese instruments such as shamisen and shakuhachi credited along with electric guitar, theremin, and electronics. At times it’s dissonant in an avant-rock way. In other moments, it’s trippy, evocative, and otherworldly. During the album’s second half, vocalist avery r young gives a voice to Mitchell’s lyrics about earthly struggles. He seems to creep up to the stage from the back of the room during the gospel-inflected “Staircase Struggle”. “Shiny Divider” is a bit more bluesy, speaking frankly of bloodshed and demanding that humanity finds a solution. After the lengthy instrumental “Mandorla Island”, young returns on “TineWrap”, referencing heavy labor in fields and on railroads, and explaining how determination is crucial to the survival of humanity. A powerful album which (unfortunately) is even more relevant now than when it was composed and recorded.

Between Interval: Legacy (Spotted Peccary, 2017)

April 20, 2017 at 8:08 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Between Interval: Legacy

Pretty good deep space ambient/downtempo with a slight sci-fi theme. This artist remixed Sally Shapiro almost a decade ago, but I’d say this is closer to Johan Agebjörn’s solo stuff. Pulsating ambient with touches of sad synth-pop melodies and some dub echoes. There’s light arpeggios, but there’s lots of room for space and reflection. “The Hour Appointed” has rushing water, bird chirps, and bell-like tones. “Fields of Neptune” has a nice synth sequence which drifts in along with nocturnal mist and fog. “Gravity Core” is dub techno with the beats suspended so all that’s left is the echoes into the void (plus some suspenseful pads creeping in during key moments). “Inner Guidance” is the only track to feature voices, and they’re heavily shrouded in echo, resembling the advice of spirits. Between Interval’s style is somewhat minimalist, but the intention is for the imagination to color in the empty space.

Ron Zakrin: One In A Million LP (Equal Recordings, 2017)

April 19, 2017 at 10:43 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Ron Zakrin: One In A Million LP

Detroit-based painter and musician Ron Zakrin used to record electro-punk as Goudron, with releases on ADULT.’s Ersatz Audio and Ectomorph’s Interdimentional Transmissions. This is his first LP under his own name, and it’s closer to stripped-down electro-techno, with brittle, paranoid melodies in the Dopplereffekt/Aux 88 mode, but there’s still new wave/synth-pop elements to it. “Hells Androids” is bouncy and playful, but “Guilty Pleasures” is more of an even tempo and has some guitar-like distortion and a swooping bassline. “Streetwise” injects some 8-bit textures into its suspenseful electro-funk. “Haste to Hastings” and “Midnight Hustle (D Major)” are cosmic disco homages, and “One in a Million” is a chipper new wave tune with a playful Casio-sounding outro. Available from Bandcamp.

Ian Ginsing: Cosmetic Blemish 12″ EP (Equal Recordings, 2016)

April 19, 2017 at 10:08 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Ian Ginsing: Cosmetic Blemish 12″ EP

Solid, steady tech-house from a former Detroiter now living in Portland, and also known as Jerry Abstract. Solid, playful tracks with a snap and a crunch to them. Pretty minimal and groove-based, for the most part. “Wet Yeti” is as slyly cheeky as its title; “Womance” is a bit darker and more pensive, and has lots of cool snips and glitches. “Pattaya Shuffle” is a bit of a nervous rattler, with stammering beats and some weird cartoonish samples poking through near the end. “Seeping Into Film” has an almost dubstep/garage-ish bounce to it, and a filtered vocal sample that reminds me of Hardrive’s “Deep Inside” for some reason (but buried way deep inside). Available on Bandcamp, but “Wet Yeti” only appears on the 12″.
