v/vm ushers in may
Loads of new releases, helpful insight and quiet reflection coming from the V/Vm camp this month. Find out about some of the highlights and lowlights from April as well as a look to the future releases from the boys from Stockport.
606 dreams on
Kid 606 has a remix on one of the new CD singles from Depeche Mode. He's only on the indie label Mute release from the UK and wasn't featured on the major label scumbag release in the USA. So buy imports and don't support the RIAA.
Tortoise on ATP 1.0
For those big Tortoise fans who always wanted "Cliff Dweller Society" on stunning high-fidelity digital compact disc, the song is available now in its complete 15:42 form on the super-limited and quickly selling-out 'All Tomorrow's Parties' compilation CD from this year's fest. Other exclusive songs appear on the disc from Broadcast, Autechre, The Sea and Cake, Prefuse 73, Yo La Tengo, Boards of Canada and more.
bailiff freebies gone
So if you were checking the Jessica Bailiff page, you might have seen the freebies being given away to lucky emailers. Unfortunately all the 10" singles are now gone. Thanks to all from Jessica who was paying attention! Ms. Bailiff will be playing some upcoming shows with Northern Song Dynasty and with boosted confidence she might even start doing a small circut of solo shows again. Keep posted to her website, maybe there'll be more free stuff in the future! (No promises.)

|MUSIC IN BRIEF|
hrvatski, "21:30 for acoustic guitar"
Generally speaking, a great organic musician has the potential to be a great electronic musician. This is exactly what I think of when listening to music from Mr. Keith Fullerton Whitman, somebody most people know from writings, remixes, compilation appearances and one album as Hrvatski. The second release from Lucky Kitchen side-label Apartment B is a 21+ minute CD from Whitman recorded a few years ago (yeah, it's actually listed as Keith Fullerton Whitman but I figured who'd read the review if they didn't know he was Hrvatski?). This disc is the essence of what somebody can do with minimalism. Each 10+ minute track makes the most incredible usage of one source - acoustic guitar, processed in real-time through 4-track and other unlikely gear. I can't fully explain everything used without quoting the entire cover, but I can say with 100% confidence that Whitman has a lot to teach the European and Japanese laptop clickers about composition, form and structure. The first track starts off with a simple, searing, high-pitched melody, other octaves get added in, first lower then much lower, then much much higher, yet remaining simple, subtle and captivating. More and more replicas are added to the blissful progression, resulting in a stellar cosmic mix. Track two is another ten minute piece in which Whitman exploits tones and relative tones meshing with each other, this time most likely toying with guitar harmonics (if he is indeed using the guitar again). After the half-way mark, the overlapping tones are greeted with more energetic, melodic, shimmering, glistening notes, building up into an aural bird sanctuary, then quelling down with newer droning tones. Wow. Perhaps I've explained this all wrong, but boy does it sound tasty. - Jon Whitney
"Folktales no. 1"
The latest release in the Crouton catalog is perhaps there most ambitious to date. Jon Mueller has collected the works of three musicians Chris Rosenau (of Pele fame), Hal Rammel, and John Kannenberg and placed them on 3 3" CDs, packaging them in a beautiful quadruple gatefold sleeve complete with an exquisite corpse text written by the three artists and Mueller. The first piece is "Two Ice Fields of the Exact Same Size" by Chris Rosenau, a beautiful and stark nineteen minute electroacoustic piece inspired by a trip to Iceland. "Two Ice Fields" begins with the haunting wail of an acoustic guitar and a wine glass and slowly disintegrates into a juxtaposed collage of acoustic guitar, heating vent, dry ice, and egg shells among other instruments. Ending abruptly in its 19th minute, the first cd of this collection leaves you stranded in a cold, but beautiful wilderness of organic sound. The second disc, "Three Days from Anywhere" by improvisor and composer Hal Rammel begins with the sound of what appears to be a single fly recorded by a stereo microphone. The microtonal sound bounces from structure with faint electronics fading in and out of the piece, the fly continuing until it encompasses you, only to disappear and give way to found sounds arranged by Rammel. To fully appreciate the second disc, you have to listen to it on headphones to experience the isolation and aural textures of the music. The final disc of the series is by John Kannenberg. "Lave" compiles bass and synth along with field recordings and shortwave frequencies. The loudest of the folktales, it's also the most dense, creating a thick blanket of sound that surrounds the listener and washes over him or her in ambient fields. Interspersed with minimal electronics, "Lave" creates an alien landscape of shimmering minimalism. Created to document specific moments captured during a particular time by the artists, Folktales succeeds in offering beautiful stories of sound that offer passage to distant emotions and captured moments. - Carter Adams
rollerball, "trail of the butter yeti"
As multi-instrumentalist improvisational rock-based music becomes more popular with the emergence of groups like Volcano the Bear, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Pele, and others, Rollerball's music pursues a more structured, orchestrated environment on their current release from Roadcone. "Trail" sees this Portland, Oregon-based quintet adding more blocky beats, electronic processing and effective use of not playing to the mix. In addition, there's more focus instruments as various members often take the lead with horns, clarinet, vocals or stringed instruments. The band has certainly lost no ground with their increase of focus material; in fact there seems to be more colorful noisemakers added this time around including two members who listed 'painting' as an instrument and one including a letterpress. Fans of the improvisational sound of Ryan Moore and Neils Van Hoorn heavy LPD/Tear Garden would most likely find themselves bobbing their heads to the ten-minute "Butter Fairy". Even Meat Beat Manifesto fans would be charmed with the album's openers which almost organically mimic some of the experimentation going on with something like "The Thumb" from Actual Sounds + Voices. An unexpected vocal track, "Narcisse", alarmingly jumps out of nowhere with a refrain whose lyrics I'm struggling with, reminding me that it's always those songs we -almost- know that get stuck in our heads, as they circle around furiously until we figure out what in the world they're saying. Oh, Rollerball are damn good at that! Fans of the more improvisational noise will get a charge from some of the other offerings like "White Death" but for the most part this disc is a much more constructed, cohesive element than what has surfaced before from the band. This month sees the group embarking on a European tour including dates in Italy and the United Kingdom, with any luck shows across the USA will follow. - Jon Whitney
THE EXPERIENCE, "ONE AMAZING DAY"
"One Amazing Day" is the result of field recording trips to Greenwich's gargantuan (physically and financially) Millennium Dome structure, the official celebratory site of the new millennium. Prior to its closing a few hours before 1/1/00, visitors could come and trudge through 14 interactive zones of futuristic themed exhibits and view a sort of three dimensional, mid-air ballet live show. For 32 minutes you walk around with the V/Vm lads to take in the truly ambient sounds: large crowds of people (complete with crying babies, clicking cameras, chatting, bitching, heckling, etc.), kiosk recorded voices and music, loud speakers, event music and, ultimately, site construction. And, surprisingly, it seems that all the source sounds are unadulterated. Of the 14 seamlessly meshed tracks most are a minute or less but 2 at near 9 minutes apiece offer an extended document of specific events with cheesy narrations and/or contrived soundtracks. There's an obvious contempt here for the lottery funded, pre-packaged 'experience' offered by the New Millennium Experience Company and the British government and, of course, an inherent silliness to the whole project, but it also makes for interesting listening. I enjoy these sort of audio travelogues that take me to some place I've never been. Your mileage may vary. There is an accompanying, yet to be completed, Experience web site as well: http://www.theexperience.8k.com/. This disc is just one of many from the V/Vm camp as of late. Check the Brainwashed site for the slew of other 7" and 12" vinyl and 3" and 5" cd releases. - Mark Weddle
bip-hop generation 1 & 2
In less than a year's time, the highly ambitious French-based Bip-Hop collective has launched a webzine and fairly hip label with 4 releases readily available and more on the way. Unafraid to flood the market, the first two releases, "Bip-Hop Generation" volumes 1 and 2 gather various tracks from some of their favorite electronic acts from all over the world. Luckily these folks have good taste and great connections. Marumari from the USA, Massimo from Italy, Phonem from the UK, Goem from Holland and Ultra Milkmaids from France and Schneider TM from Germany only contributes tunes for Volume 1. Here, the spectrum ranges from beat-organized cuts from Marumari to shrill sonic substructures and medical sounds from Massimo and Goem.
Volume 2 features 20 tracks of contributions from Bernhard Flaishmann, Arovane, Warmdesk, Köhn, Wang Inc., and Laurent Pernice. On this disc, the music explores more incidental melodies, letting the electric clicks sort of fall to the background. Standout tracks include the emotive pieces from Köhn and the twittery pulsing dissonant ambience of Wang Inc., allegedly due for a full-length release one of these years! Both volumes serve a multitude of purposes. First off, many people reading this could have heard of Scheider, Ultra Milkmaids, Arovane or Wang people who have become listeners of these fine groups might find a collection featuring others interesting to pick up to experience some more music from a collective who obviously has similar tastes in music. Next up, each disc comes with a short bio, selected discography and website of each artist providing helpful reference points. Finally, it benefits the Bip-Hop fellas as they're already starting to roll out full-length albums from new and upcoming electronic acts. Unlike releases like Clicks and Cuts, these compilations aren't out to prove any point or lump a bunch of groups into one definable genre, they're simply sharing in some of the cooler future electronica names. My only issue is simply getting sick of seeing the word "bleep" in association with music. - Jon Whitney
Anja Garbarek "Smiling & Waving"
The sophomore release by Anja Garbarek, daughter of Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek, will be poorly compared by many an unimaginative writer to Björk. But, I guess it's easy to make that sort of leap when dealing with female artists who record outside the mainstream - just like writers who compare every trumpeter to Miles Davis. Garbarek seems to have inherited the "less-is-more" aesthetic her father used in helping to define the "ECM sound" by infusing sparse chamber-jazz with false electronic ambience, creating a personal warmth rarely captured in the studio. Of course, with help from such legends as Robert Wyatt (providing incindental vocalisations on "The Diver"), ex-Japan-sters Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri, and Talk Talk's Mark Hollis (who, along with collaborator Martin Ditcham, contributes bass and melodica, as well as some arrangements, like on the, uh, Björkish ur-jungle fuzz of "Big Mouth"), capturing genius isn't hard. Garbarek's voice floats gently over swelling strings and staticky glitch eruptions on "Her Room", like a lucid Beth Gibbons of Portishead, pouring sweet lullaby melodies in your ear. Garbarek's "Smiling & Waving" approaches the sublime beauty of the recent electro-acoustic jazz of "Bodily Functions" by Matthew Herbert, as well as latter day Talk Talk or the mellower aspects of Lamb, but still stakes a claim to a lush musical landscape that is all her own. - Jason Olariu
KURT RALSKE, "//AMOR. 0+01"
Kurt Ralske is a NYC-based artist, composer, producer and engineer aka Cathars and former head of late '80s/early '90s indy popsters Ultra Vivid Scene. These days Ralske composes entirely upon a g3 Powerbook with the Max/MSP language. "//amor. 0+01" is the debut under his own name and it is very similar in sound to the Cathars album "", both of which are from 1999. The title track, as the title seems to suggest, briefly expresses love with digital bits: a melodic loop, a tidal cloud of sound, intermittent glitches and bass swells. "new kyrie" does much the same for nearly 14 minutes, minus the glitches and loop and plus a constant thump that sounds much like a steadily dribbled basketball. The final track "forgiven" takes up the better half of the disc at just under 30 minutes and proves to be the most minimal and rewarding. Here the only sound is long swathes of deep drone and drifting ambiance. Whereas the first two tracks leave me somewhat indifferent this one is purely captivating, either as foreground or background soundtrack. There is also a ROM video for the title track, but unfortunately none of the 4 computers I've tried were able to read the disc - audio or data - so perhaps there's an error with the discs. I'll be e-mailing Sub Rosa soon to find out. - Mark Weddle
current 93, "cats drunk on copper"
One of the most memorable nights in my adult life now has a soundtrack companion. The night on that summery evening at the Union Chapel in 1997 is still fresh in my mind. I got to spend time with one of my best friends Andrew, as we met Coil for the first time in person on the way in, and sat in a crowd pointing at various WSD-celebs like Steven Stapleton and other supporting cast members like Mika from Panasonic, Ivan Pavlov of COH and John Everall of Sentrax. The concert opened with readings from John Balance and a couple others (one of them lives in NY I think) and subsequently continued with the current cast of Current 93: Rose McDowell and Michael Cashmore on guitar, Karl Blake on bass, Joolie Wood on violin and James Mannox on drums. Special other guests on hand that evening included Bill Breeze, Martin Stone and Big Bucks Burnett, all joining in the big "Christ and the Pale Queens" closer. The unobtrusive audience gives me the impression it was recorded straight from the sound board, but unlike many similiarly recorded shows, I don't feel there's any loss of depth here. Put the music on in your livingroom and it feels like you're actually there. "Cats Drunk on Copper" was initially made available to the audience at the recent return to the Union Chapel, and now it's available through World Serpent. For a track listning, some photos and other specifics, check out the Current 93 page special page on this particular show right here. - Jon Whitney
richard devine, "lipswitch"
The downfall of the modern age is that any 19 year old with rich parents and an arsenal of computer software can record an album in their house. But what do these vicious young upstarts really know about melody, composition and structure yet? Richard D. Vine's current 40-minute EP opens with one of the most overused cliches in the last few years of electronic albums - open with a boring, brooding dark ambient track. More excitement jumps in with the second track but it's entirely too thin and mimics an Aphex or Autechre track tossed to the Windows 98 Recycle Bin. Track three is another quick ambient interlude, big surprise! A 4/4 two-bar intro starts number four and boom another 1996-era Autechre-influenced tuneless chopped up drum beat predictable as the 6:15 MARTA leaving from Candler Park. Honestly if this kid is the piano prodigy or computer science wizard as the press often describes, then I'm entirely missing the entire point of this record. Okay, so it'll please the 20-nothing girls and the NIN fans who recently discovered Aphex Twink, but I'm not fooled. This 40 minute offering isn't essential, noteworthy nor exciting, the limited sound palette of Devine comes about five years too late to the scene and just reminds me Warp needs to consider the future more so than the past. - Jon Whitney

It makes me want to run screaming in primitive joy, detonating nuclear bombs, tearing down the city of Manchester and makes the perfect soundtrack to watching the sun go down as I walk the fifty minute trek through park, wastelands and dingy back streets, across the concrete divide to Planet K. It's a tape of early Killing Joke demos and live things and the wired conviction of that tribal drumming, barbarically electrifying distorted synth and lyrical visions of armageddon are still very potent, and show up much of the 'rock music' that has come along since as the vapid piffle it is.
Amazingly in Planet K things were even more perfectly apocalyptic. The stage is bare, as if swept clean of life, but there's a massive headcleaning electric crackle resonating across the space as blue white rectangles flicker where performers are missing. The hum seems a logical stripping of Killing Joke to its essential wired core - Coleman's overloading synth. Occasional deep bass pulses shake the foundations at too slow a pace to register timing. Kevin Drumm is perched behind a laptop at the sound desk and is responsible for this overpowering purging noise.
This being Manchester, home of Buzzcocks, it could've been time to crack a bad Boredom pun about the Drumm hum but Mike Ladd wasn't allowing us any downtime. The band ambled on and launched as the Drumm fizzled out.
Was this the new dawn after the nuclear storm?
After Drumm's precise tones the sound was relatively muddy for the full on four piece with drums, raps, guitar/computer and turntables. Mike Ladd has a T-shirt emblazoned with the legend Afro Punk and gives us some spiel about his inspirations Bad Brains, Black Flag and Fishbone. Why do Americans in Europe eat at Pizza Hut? There are bigger questions but this between song joke exemplified the imperialist cloak of the 'free' market before Ladd scratched and funked his mark as an infesticon (opposed to majesticon).
It was a shame that Drumm didn't get another set before Tortoise did their thing. They did a professional set with much instrument swapping and it didn't really take off until the second half. I think they launched into what seemed like a freeform jam in the middle of TNT (or was it another track its hard to tell with all this lack of words) and Herndon was really giving it some at the drums. It was neat the way they almost seemed to lose control there...
The last trio of songs nailed it. A silence still at their instruments then BLAM! Senceca unleashed that dual guitar duel and the fire and fury was in their eyes and hearts. If only they could make a whole album like that first two minutes of free falling two turning pluck'n'strum'n'drum! Then the much requested Djed was an eye opener that faded like the setting sun as McEntire and Herndon decelerated their vibraphone runs.
Where Drumm had sparked off a cleansing fire and Ladd had the diatribes and plans and notions to free nations, Tortoise were embracing visions of post-apocalyptic utopianism - a new dawn after the flood that will wash away the masters and leave the servants what is left of the world. Ladd was back with a vision to take into the night as the final bars of the Tortoise European leg faded into the smoke.
The meek shall inherit the mirth.
