KATIE GATELY / TLAOTLON

Split Series #23

FatCat Records

Format_dot_vinylLP // £7.49

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: 12FAT093

What looks like the penultimate edition of FatCat's split series contrasts a remarkably epic Katie Gately composition with a side of spannered psychedelic house by Tlaotlon. This is the first we've heard of Katie Gately since her fascinating side for Public Information a year ago. Again she returns to the painstaking method of sampling and editing her own vocals and concrète sources into uncannily detailed, kinetic arrangements liable to buckle, vault and twist in the most unique geometries. Her 'Pivot' plays through as one 14 minute piece collaging a tortuous narrative from mu… Read more

Rough Trade

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: RTRADST724

*Ships Friday* Heralding Dean Blunt's 'Black Metal' album, Rough Trade cut digital single '50 Cent' and new song 'Trident' to heavy wax. The bummed-out drums and guitars of '50 Cent' shuffle across the A-side voiced by a blue duet between Blunt and Joanne Robertson. B-side, 'Trident' leans on a steel cold tip with gangster drum drill and tweaked-out guitar loops recalling Blunt's Watch The Throne associate, James Ferraro. Can't say i'm not a little disappointed they didn't include the first half of the youtube version, hoping they'll rectify that on the LP if it's not a copyright headfxxk.

'Tomorrow Was the Golden Age' is an unmistakably gorgeous and refreshing suite of microtonal minimalist composition by New York-based ensemble, Bing & Ruth. Helmed by writer, conductor and lead pianist, David Moore, and supported by two upright bassists, two clarinetists, a cellist and a tape delay tech, Bing & Ruth genuinely sweep us off somewhere sublime without recourse to overblown conceit or cliche - something all too prevalent and cloying in today's neo-classical quarters. Their skill lies in the ability to drift, almost imperceptibly, between microtonal harmonies and si… Read more

Punkishly cocked with drawling vocals and greased up with slow, kinky boogie and electro rhythms, it lands somewhere between '20 Jazz Funk Greats'-era TG and the snottier No Wave styles of Dracula Lewis or $hit & $hine, at best in the loping, reverse edit loops and snivelly delivery of 'Win The Lotto', the mutant disco propulsions of 'Mr. Alan', 'Rubber Doll' and 'Stray Dog', or the coiled electro slither of 'Tropical Fruit'.
