RAOUL! RAOUL! RAOUL! now available as double vinyl too!

Dear friends

SD_RAOUL_600600_72DPI

 

The uncompromising RAOUL by The Spanish Donkey (a.k.a. Joe Morris on electric guitar, Jamie Saft on Hammond and Korg organs, Minimoog and Echoplex piano, and Mike Pride on drums is finally available to buy immediately as Double Vinyl (2x180gms) (as well as CD Digipack and multiple download formats).

from the press release:

“The sound of Joe Morris’ electric guitar, with distortion pedal set on stun and wah-wah pedal fully engaged, colliding with Jamie Saft’s droning, microtonal organ and Mike Pride’s thunderous free drumming approach to the kit creates a mind-numbing maelstrom on The Spanish Donkey’s RAOUL, the improvising trio’s debut on RareNoise records. A follow-up to XYX, their 2011 released on Northern Spy Records, the album consists of three throbbing tracks — the brutal 32-minute title track RAOUL, the 22-minute Behavioral Sink and 16-minute Echoplex piano feature Dragon Fly Jones

that showcase The Spanish Donkey’s remarkable group-think as well as the individual player’s uncanny intuition on their respective instruments. More intensely cathartic, startlingly original and compelling than anything you’ve ever heard — think of it as the child of John Coltrane’s Interstellar Space and Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music — RAOUL stands as a hellacious manifesto by one of the most formidable improvising trios around today.”

Cuts Of Guilt, Cuts Deeper now available in all formats!

Dear Friends,

CUTS-OF-GUILT-650px

 

Cuts Of Guilt, Cuts Deeper, the new magnum opus by Merzbow, Mats Gustafsson, Balazs Pandi, here with Thurston Moore on guitar, is finally available to buy in all formats, including Double Vinyl (2x180gms).

From the press release:

“How did renowned Japanese noisemaker Merzbow (aka Masami Akita), Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi follow up their majorly intense statement made on their tumultuous debut album, Cuts, which was released in 2013? By adding another ingredient to the volatile mix, in the person of skronking guitar hero and Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore things are taken up a notch or two on the Richter scale on their RareNoiseRecords follow-up recording. With Gustafsson’s roaring baritone sax blending with Moore’s shriekback guitar, Pandi’s intensely throbbing beats and Merzbow’s subversive white noise barrages, it all adds up to a sonic pummeling of epic proportions on the remarkable two CD-set/two LP-set, Cuts of Guilt, Cuts Deeper.

Here a reminder of why you should offer yourself

Plymouth Available to Pre-Order Now

Dear Friends,

Plymouth_LowRes

following up on our previous post detailing the the release of Chat Noir’s Elec3Cities, we would like to introduce you to the second RareNoiseRecords release slated for  APRIL 7TH 2014:

Plymouth (RNR040/RNR040LP)

Plymouth_Cover_600600_72dpi

Following on the heels of their successful collaboration on 2013‘s Slobber Pup, one of the most intensely throbbing releases in the RareNoise catalog, keyboardist Jamie Saft and guitarist Joe Morris have reunited for another potent and provocative offering in Plymouth. Joining them on the three expansive pieces that comprise this purely improvised set are the indelible rhythm tandem of bassist Chris Lightcap and drummer Gerald Cleaver, who have played together in various settings (including Morris’ quartet) since the late ‘90s, and rising star avant garde guitarist Mary Halvorson (a former student of Morris’). Together they create compelling stream-of-conscious sonic excursions that range from zen-like quietude to hellacious distortion-laced fury, as on the 20-minute “Manomet,” the 13-minute title track and the 29-minute journey, “Standish.” Nothing is ever predictable or resolves neatly on this audacious, wildly uncompromising outing.

DownBeat writer John Ephland reviewed Plymouth’s U.S. debut on a special RareNoise label showcase held at Shapeshifter lab in Brooklyn on Dec. 13, 2013:

“Beginning with a dose of dreamy electric piano, Plymouth brought on a storm of floating, shimmering rubato. The playing centered around a gently implied beat. Halvorson’s guitar work started with deft, unobtrusive slide playing, which provided a contrast to Morris’ more dedicated single-note lines. Saft’s chimey chords directed the music into a loose-limbed rock cadence, while Morris’ hard-edged picking served as a drone. Halvorson replied with lush chordal phrases, while Saft’s scary-movie organ lines were a lattice for what became a two-note jam of squirrelly lines, repeated over and over. Saft continued with dense thickets of sound combined with repeated loops and pedal effects from both guitarists. By this point, there was an audible heaving and sighing over a definite groove, menacing but also somehow innocent. The group improvisation could be heard as a collection of voices—five individuals foraging through a forest of sounds.”

“This group was conceived as a way to bring together Joe Morris and Mary Halvorson with a rhythm section of long standing friends and colleagues,” explains Saft, who co-produced the recording with Morris. “It’s a very different sound than Slobber Pup but created with a similar attitude and focus on total freedom. Nothing was pre-conceived or discussed beforehand. It’s purely a meeting of sympathetic minds that resulted in something quite astonishing.”

While Saft’s keyboard rig in the crunching quartet Slobber Pup is mostly organs running through a Marshall amp turned up to 11, his setup in Plymouth is based around the acoustic piano fed through an Echoplex (like on his own dub-influenced New Zion Trio). Morris and Halvorson interact intuitive on guitar, alternately between clean tones and distortion tones, with Halvorson also supplying some of her signature chordal swells with her deft use of a Whammy Bar pedal. Chris Lightcap, who almost exclusively plays upright bass in his own group Bigmouth and in his numerous sideman roles, plays a hollowbody electric bass with a fuzz pedal on this Plymouth session. And Cleaver, a remarkably flexible and powerful drummer, provides the glue that holds all the freewheeling excursions together.

“I absolutely love playing with Gerald,” says Saft. “He is the rare marriage of power, depth and complete freedom. Gerald frames all the madness with an acoustic sound that is extra rich and complements all the electrical energy perfectly.”

Saft, who has long been associated with many of John Zorn’s ensembles including The Dreamers and Electric Masada and has also toured and recorded with the pioneering Japanese noise musician Merzbow, heaped praise on his Plymouth partner Morris, a free jazz guitar icon with more than 20 releases as a leader to his credit.

“I’ve known Joe for over 20 years,” says Saft. “We made music together in the early ‘90s in Boston when I was finishing up as a student at New England Conservatory. Joe was a local avant legend and I was extremely fortunate to get to work with him back then. We lost touch for almost 20 years and reconnected at some festivals a few years ago and started brainstorming.”

Chat Noir’s Elec3Cities available to Pre-Order Now

Dear Friends,

cn_webphoto

following up on our previous post detailing our release schedule for 2014 , we would like to introduce you to to the first of two next releases due out APRIL 7TH 2014:

Chat Noir’s Elec3Cities (RNR038/RNR038LP)

Chat Noir

By organically blending elements of electronica and ambient music with bits of chamber music and jazz, the innovative trio of pianist Michele Cavallari, bassist Luca Fogagnolo and drummer Giuliano Ferrari has come up with a wholly unique sound on Elec3Cities that may establish a daring new direction for the piano trio. This delicate balance of electronic experimentalism and acoustic piano jazz has been evolving gradually from the group’s initial release in 2006, Adoption, and continued on 2007’s Decoupage through 2008’s Difficult to See You and 2011’s acclaimed Weather Forecasting Stone. But the three Italian musicians take it to a wholly new level on Elec3Cities, their most overtly experimental outing to date.

“Experimentation has always been a fundamental part of our work, in the past as well as now,” says bassist Fogagnolo. “We’d describe our journey as a ship adrift. If jazz was our starting point we’ve always felt free to explore different languages. So for us, Elec3Cities does not feel like a conceptual leap since we have been gradually incorporating electronic manipulation of acoustic sounds into our music all along. The unique circumstance of the three of us being in three different cities during the recording of this project created an opportunity for us to more extensively use electronic sounds as a common language.”

By creating their fifth album in a ‘virtual studio,’ the three members of Chat Noir showed that they are right on the cutting edge of recording technology. Indeed, the methods used in putting Elec3Cities together didn’t even exist five year ago. As Fogagnolo explains,

“The album was entirely developed by exchanging music session through a cloud-based system. So although the album is based on the usual three pillars – piano, bass and drums – the novel recording approach allowed us to have more time to devote to paying attention to small details. We could experiment a lot more in the post-production phase to manipulate the sounds and tracks. We had time to craft our work according to the original concept that we had for it, as well as ample time for it to take on a new form after multiple exchanges of ideas among the three of us.”

The resulting sound of this expansive, genre-defying project is at times powerfully cinematic (“Avant Buddha”) or delicately balladic (“Chelsea High Line”), dreamily evocative (“Pearls”), minimalist and ambient (“Aspekt”) or bombastic and rhythmically charged (“Radio Show”). Surprises abound within each instrumental journey, whether it’s the sonic excursion on “Peaceful,” which builds from ruminative solo piano to throbbing crescendo, or the dramatic “Our Hearts Have Been Bombed” which travels from zen-like minimalism to provocative dub-noise passages.

While the core of Chat Noir may have come from a modern jazz piano trio setting, somewhat along the lines of E.S.T. or the Bad Plus, Fogagnolo maintains that there is very little improvisation on their latest recording. “It always took a marginal place in our music,” he says.

“We always preferred to express our sound in a structured form rather than playing ‘solos.’ However, for Elec3Cities, each of us often improvised and recorded them as audio tracks for the others to listen to and spark different possible solutions for a theme or a sound as you hear it.”

Following in the footsteps of such pioneering North European electronic jazz artists as Nils Petter, Molvaer, Eivind Aarset,  Jan Bang, Eric Honore, Arve Henriksen and bands like Supersilient and Jaga Jazzst, Chat Noir are poised to take their place on that new music scene with the release of Elec3Cities, their most adventurous and potent project to date.

Elec3Cities available to PRE-ORDER NOW as

CD Digipack (with free mp3 download) – CD Deliveries Start Around April 7th

Single LP (180 gm Vinyl with free mp3 download) – Vinyl Deliveries Start Around April 28th

Through the looking glass: a peek at RareNoiseRecords releases for 2014

Dear Friends

TWINSCAPES_600600_72dpi

2014 has started swiftly, and we would like to take the opportunity to offer you all a peek at the releases we have prepared for this year. This year’s release schedule will be very intense and will feature two releases per monthly cycle

End of February/Early March: 

We start with TWINSCAPES (RNR037 and RNR037LP) ,  an album imagined and moulded by Colin Edwin and Lorenzo Feliciati  after an impromptu gig in London in Spring 2013.  The two master bass-players called upon trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer, saxophonist David Jackson of Van Der Graaf Generator, percussionist Andi Pupato of Ronin and Roberto Gualdi, drummer of Italian Prog Rock legends PFM. TWINSCAPES was mixed by none other than Bill Laswell in Orange Studios, NJ. Official release date for the album is March 7th.

LISTEN HERE

The album can now be ordered here NOW from the RareNoiseStore as CD Digipack, Single LP 180gms (shipping from around Feb 25th, e.g. a roughly week from release date), .mp3, .flac and 24bit/96Khz HD .flac digital.

The three Scots, Rebecca Sneddon on alto sax, Colin Stewart on bass and Paul Archibald on drums were discovered by Eraldo Bernocchi mid 2013 – once signed they headed over to Gorbal Studios in Glasgow in September 2013 where they re-recorded their two first EPs and a new full length album (The Awakening of The City) due out in 2015. The Double EP and the next full length album were mixed by Eraldo Bernocchi. Official release date for the album is March 7th

By organically and masterfully blending elements of Electronica, both Ambient and Concrete Music with structures arising out of chamber music and jazz, this innovative has come up with a wholly unique sound on Elec3Cities that may establish a daring new direction for the format.The delicate balance of electronic experimentalism and acoustic piano jazz has been evolving gradually from the group’s initial release in 2006, Adoration, and continued on 2007’s Decoupage through 2008’s Difficult to See You and 2011’s acclaimed Weather Forecasting Stone. But the three Italian musicians take it to a wholly new level on Elec3Cities, their most overtly experimental outing to date and debut for the London-based RareNoise label.

2015

2015 will be a year of further surprises. Currently on the books

New Releases for 2013 and 2014 – Part III : Free Nelson MandoomJazz

Dear Friends

FreeNelsonMandoomJazz SaxophoneGiganticus

The third chapter of the time-travelling adventures into our planned 2013 and 2014 release schedule, after touching the shores of Brazil and NYC (with Ivo Perelman’s ONE due out on October 1st 2013) and Mexico (with MOLE’ Trio’s RGB due out Mid November 2013) will bring us back to Scotland, the land of Free Nelson MandoomJazz.

Discovered by Eraldo Bernocchi, who will be producing their next album (to be recorded in Glasgow on the 6/7/8 of September), Rebecca Sneddon on Sax, Colin Steward on Electric Bass and Paul Archibald on drums offer us a very fascinating take on DoomJazz – one that is equally respectful of the tradition of Bop as it is of Doom.

Early December 2013 we will be unleashing their first two EPs onto the world, The Shape of DoomJazz to Come and Saxophone Giganticus, remastered for the occasion. The New Album will then follow mid/late 2014.
