Martin Brandlmayr: Vive Les Fantômes (Thrill Jockey, 2019)

May 28, 2019 at 8:44 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Martin Brandlmayr: Vive Les Fantômes

Composer/percussionist Martin Brandlmayr’s Vive Les Fantômes is a radio play recorded for broadcast on German radio station SWR. It numerous snippets from interviews, rehearsals, and performances by jazz artists like Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, and the sounds are blipped in, repeated, and transformed throughout the 53-minute piece. Shocking bursts of horn and abrupt drum rolls pierce the ambient landscape, Miles Davis repeatedly talks about the sounds of astronauts taking off into space, Jacques Derrida answers his phone. Brandlmayr’s sparse, spacious drumming threads things together during several points. As with Negativland’s work, sounds repeat themselves in a way that both emphasizes their content and also turns them into a sort of meme-like running joke, but this mix isn’t nearly as dense or socially conscious. It’s a much more abstract collage which invites the listeners to reflect on what certain moments mean to them.

Feeling Kréyol: Las Palé (Astérie, 1988/reissued by Strut, 2018)

Feeling Kréyol: Las Palé

This is a reissue of an incredibly rare zouk album produced in Guadeloupe during the late ’80s. The liner notes explain that the producer, Darius Dénon, put together the group (they had never met each other before) and wrote and arranged most of the songs. The album didn’t really go anywhere and the group never recorded anything else, but Dénon managed to have a successful career later. But as things happen, the album eventually attracted a cult audience, so here we have a reissue from Strut. Zouk is completely beyond my frame of knowledge, but this is a really fun, sweet album. It definitely doesn’t sound like the most professional recording in the world, but it’s incredibly charming, funky, and catchy. If you appreciate any of Awesome Tapes From Africa’s more synth-heavy reissues from around this time period (late ’80s/early ’90s), you’ll certainly fall for this one.

Leaf Erikson: A Canvas Of Hope (self-released, 2019)

May 18, 2019 at 1:35 pm | Posted in Reviews | 1 Comment

Leaf Erikson: A Canvas Of Hope

Leaf Erikson represents Detroit to the fullest on his excellent new album. Produced entirely by Meftah (whose sister Tanya used to be a DJ at WCBN several years ago), the beats are abstract and jazzy, filled with vinyl crackle and lo-fi grittiness, but they avoid sounding like a direct copy of any other well-known producer. The lyrics are what really make the album shine, however, celebrating Detroit in spite of all of its problems. “D.R.E.A.M.” flips Wu-Tang’s anthem, declaring that “Detroit Rules Everything Around Me”, while “Foreclosure” talks about how various suburbs of Detroit (and even Detroit’s midtown) are becoming the hippest places in the area, while the hood is still being ignored. “H2O” also touches on gentrification as well as the continuing Flint water crisis. Still, there’s an extraordinary amount of hope and humility throughout, particularly on tracks like “Rescue Mission” and “Gospel from the North End”. Strongly recommended.

Forest Management: Passageways LP (Whited Sepulchre, 2019)

May 5, 2019 at 1:53 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Forest Management: Passageways LP

This is already in the running as one of my favorite ambient albums of the year. Its five tracks range from horizontal drones to patches of haunted ballroom music. “Various Sources of Light” rolls on for 15 minutes, gradually becoming brighter and clearer, while “Blue Leaves” (probably my favorite) is deeper and more obscured, seemingly hiding an intense spirit under the festering distortion. This album can be relaxing if you just leave it on in the background, but it seems like there’s something more sinister going on underneath.
