Boomkat Product Review:
Bernard Fleischmann, Morr Music's first signing and original recording artist, has had a long and fruitful history of collaboration with the label. The flowing ambience of 'Poploops For Breakfast' gave Morr Music the unique cross-generic opening it so craved for - and his work has continued to mesh familiar and unfamilar sounds with a love of instruments regarded by many as plastic or pre-fabricated (the Mc-505 Groovebox of the title), together with more organic acoustic overlays. For 'Duo 505', Fleischmann comes together with classically trained multi-instrumentalist Herbert Weixelbaum, an experiment that blends the level-headedness and ambient tendencies of Fleischmann with Weixelbaum's insistance on disgruntled guitars, slices of distortion and a Lo-HiFi (or was it Hi-LoFi?) sensibility. 'Late' is both calming and rugged, ambient and robust - a reduced landscape of indie-pop structures brought down to two men and their machines. Recommended.
