TEN HYPHEN TWENTY

Go To Earth

WHERE TO NOW

Format_dot_stuffCassette // £5.49

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: WHERETONOW9

Murky ambient flux from Ten Hyphen Twenty for Brighton's Where To Now? crew. Two extended pieces unravel with enigmatic logic; 'Portrait Of A House Plant' dissolving between darker ambient drones and composted ferric textures to pockets of trapped bass music, frictional rhythms against morphing swells of noise and detached melodies in between blurry ambient dimensions. 'Still Life With Indoor Water Feature' is lusher, traversing processed field recordings, crushing/crushed concrete textures and lost, ambient motifs deep into the sort of cracked, kaleidoscopic vortex you might expect from Wanda Group or DJ Purple Image. Recommended!

"Over the course of four albums The Books eschewed genres and pigeonholes so effortlessly and earnestly that they ultimately pioneered a new genre (or three) in the process. And for all the speechlessness their recordings inspired, their videos were every bit as beguiling: a surreal mix of bizarre found footage, home movies, and psychedelic animated imagery that fit their music so well that the two became virtually inseparable in their live performances. Freedom From Expression collects every video ever made by the Books, compiled in chronological order. Itʼs enormously satisfying an… Read more

Cat. Number: VON018

**Edition of 300** '1812' is an immersive audiovisual work by intrepid Spanish director and visual artist Carlos Casas. It's his third audiovisual work released via the Von archives, following the densely psychedelic 'Choir' and engrossing 'Vezdekhod' collaborations with Nico Vascellari and Prurient. Taking the as yet unparalleled vision of Sergey Bondarchuk's staggering and hugely influential 1967 film rendition of Lev Tolstoy's classic 'War & Peace' novel, Casas annihilates and implodes the narrative with an impenetrable and multi-layered collage intending to redress the way we perceive film and p… Read more

"Cave return following their ‘Neverendless’ album. ‘Threace’ is a real ‘back to the lab’ kind of album for Cave. They have spent more time on these new sounds than they had before - which is saying a lot! All Cave music grabs at your ears and the soft tissue within, and yet this time it's just so much more crystalline, bottom-booting and all-consuming than ever before. Threace comes on guitar up and jelly tight, saving the keys for colour commentary among the beats. Jeremy and Cooper explore their six-string relationship, finding shared space, ducking, parrying, working the edges, and finally twinni… Read more

"Mike Donovan’s debut comes following a distinguished run of tunesmithing for noise-popster poster boyz Sic Alps, so he’s well prepared to go the solo route with a sack full of songs. Lyrically, Mike’s sharpened the lead for a less random line drawn in the sand - allusive trips, lost in crystal canyons, turning a phrase with an acid flick of the wristwatch. Guitars intersecting in the manner of the old loom The Stones once used, weaving in blue. Where rubric becomes fabric becomes freecidelic. Confronting the empty in acrostic (inner) space, WOT is Plastic Ono dyspeptic arrhythmia. The dream is … Read more
