Radia; 2012; and February tomorrow

It’s been a while since I posted; but rest assured there are quite a few things happening around these parts.

o

ONE: I’m delighted to say there’s a new release available to order on Dust, Unsettled. This is a wonderful new album by Glenn Bach entitled Radia.

Glenn Bach 'Radia' Here’s how Glenn describes the album: With this new project, Radia, Glenn Bach builds quiet soundscapes from guitar feedback and field recordings captured at various state parks in California and Wisconsin. By combining the unpredictable aspect of analog signal with the mostly natural sounds of protected landscapes, Bach examines the blurred boundaries of geography, place and memory.

This disc has been a long time coming (all down to me, rather than Glenn – the most patient man on the planet!), but I’m convinced Radia is worth the wait. It’s a subtle and introverted series of slow soundscapes, abstract and minimalistic yet contemplative in nature. I really love it, and I’m so pleased Glenn sent it to me for release.

You can pre-order the album here; everything is at the duplicators now and it should be out in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, you can listen to all of the tracks on the Dust, Unsettled site or on our new SoundCloud page (and on the player below).

TWO: I will have a few new releases out soon.

The long delayed Suburban Electrification should be out in the very, very near future on Overland Shark. I understand that Andrew will be emailing those who ordered many months ago, so look out for something in your mailboxes from him soon. I’m sorry to say it seems this tape won’t now be released.

Amulets is a new album released on tape by Brad Rose’s excellent Digitalis label. This should be out in the next month or so, I think, in Digitalis’s last batch of tapes. Expect more on this shortly.

o

THREE: I’m also working on new releases for Notice Recordings, sicsic Tapes and a few others. More on these soon, too.

o

FOUR: Matthew Shaw and I have a new Fougou album coming out shortly on Greengage Sounds. Entitled Further from the Centre of Disturbance, this is a follow-up to, and a progression from, our first album Reversed Dreams of this Nature. The album will be limited and nicely packaged by our great friends HK and Nan.

o

And that’s all for now, folks. Thanks for reading this far – there’ll be more on all of the above very soon!
