CRAIG LEON - Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1: Nommos / Visiting, RVNG Intl.
*Craig Leon-approved reissue of his two solo albums Nommos and Visiting as a 2LP set in gorgeous packaging with two essays by Leon and a download coupon* Issued respectively by John Fahey’s Takoma label in 1980 and Leon’s Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard Craig Leon. Leon’s production was pivotal in realising the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound, Leon’s own debut album was arguably, if not literally… Read more

Described by Important simply as "Literal synthesis”, the album is at once familiar and a bit of a revelation as far as the Eleh discography to date is concerned.

They and it are testament to a rooted yet accelerated Italian electronic music scene, presenting impressionistic, emotive visions referencing recent and hypermodern styles from a forward, somewhat detached perspective, as with the beautifully garish vision of… Read more

Hot on the heels of his Dego and Kaidi 12", a reissue of his Cousin Cockroach classic 'This Ain't Tom 'N Jerry', and his Theo Parrish hook-up, 'Just Begin', Dego's arguably on classic form right now, turning out the swinging budge of 'Nuts!' and the fluid electro-funk of 'Could Murder A Burger' on top, and the shadier, seductive shuffle of 'Celestian Ditton' on the flip. Falty DL remixes the latter with his signature sense of space and intricate rhythm mechanics, and even a dash of jazzy scat, causing Dego to exclaim "The force is strong with this one…".

Crushing and febrile club gear from pivotal Austrian artist Philipp Quehenberger. 'Content' feels like a strange, lost transmission or reminder from a bygone European techno era untainted by trend and dedicated to tweaking out the most unusual, awkward sensations from hardware and computers. Rather than crude noise, sleek minimalism or inter-dimensional trippiness, Quehenberger's sound is best defined in terms of raw, repetitive muscularity and dissonant ambient qualities, doing what the likes of Prostitutes or Container do, only far better, and with cooler sense of discipline.

The Scottish producer gives a extended edit of album track 'IIVA' strewn with spring reverb ricochets and radiant harmonic aurora - which NHK remixes as a spiralling folk-techno vortex - and uses a similar palette of destroyed, rusted tones and beguiling spatial convolutions to render further material as urgent, febrile dancers, ranging from the granite techno groove of 'TIIYL' and the unstable 2-step of 'IIHX' to the FIS-alike mulch of 'IILTN' and the grazing roil of Vessel in 'FIISR' and 'RYIIG'.
