We just received the test pressings of the vinyl release (limited edition Picture Disc) ‘Needles In Pain’ (ALRN036) by the formidable Philippe Petit!
Preorders start on May 10th.
Previews at Bandcamp and Soundcloud:
“…highly entertaining it is, this pair of thick, intricate tracks, in which the techniques may be obscured, but the creativity is not. Unidentifiable samples gather and swirl like hordes of locusts, accompanied by windshield wipers on dry windows. By choosing to use only his own recordings as sources, Petit retains control of the patina. There’s never a moment in which the listener is able to identify a song or artist other than the one holding the tonearm. The only familiarity is in recognizing the wealth of needle-on-wax sounds: static, skip, backspin, the needle against the end groove…”
Richard Allen / A Closer Listen (USA)
A new track which will be released on Rasplyn’s debut album via Alrealon Musique in September 2013.
