A Strange Brew: Reviewing Spinning Clocks - Spirits in the Juice

artwork by Alex Nova artwork by Alex Nova

Spirits in the Juice indeed. I don't know where the Clocks found the plums for this strange potion, but it left my head spinning after just the first sip!  

Listening to the opening piece of music, Circle Round lays out a rich carpet of organ drone as the bass pattern sets the table. Once the theme is established organs begin to layer and compete, darting and weaving soon they are braiding a gorgeous head of hair! A Big Bopper-styled maestro urges on the proceedings, and are those the sounds of swallows on the hunt as daylight grows scarce? Has the bass guitar's pattern changed at all or in fact has the listener changed within the act of listening?

Silver UFOs introduce some new tones, this time the bass gurgles, the keys ping and glide, and a violin maneuvers gracefully with, through, and around. I believe this tune might be in waltz timing. There is a moment where the tone shifts, a workmanlike mien taking the place of the carefree precedings; a dog barks as the the tumult grows, and just as quickly rainbows of violin part the clouds. Next a somewhat unexpected banjo joins the fray, picking a 'down-home' counterpoint to the violins as the song whirls through the brambles and on to its conclusion.  

The third piece, Lunar Dunes, takes us into the kind of den we've all found ourselves at one time or another. Dim lamplight casts mysterious shadows. Anonymous sorts recline on couches, others across rugs, the air thick with intermingling smokes, a couple engaged in a languid dance. It is hot. Electronics squiggle and bubble, organ and bass guitar keeping time as a theremin tone picks out the tune.     

And finally EP closer Around the Mountain finds the Clocks scaling the proverbial mount, the twilight haze of the previous 3 tracks giving way to definite night, shields and swords clattering, violins lamenting, all to the steady sturm of the bass guitar while the organ takes quill to scroll, narrating the adventure.  

While not quite 15 minutes in length, the Spinning Clocks are able to achieve some transporting effect across these 4 tracks. Given the opportunity of a full length recording I'd be curious to hear where they take us, and to what depths...   -Martin Standish

I Meant To Break Your Will, Never Your Heart

Recently I released an album entitled “I Meant To Break Your Will, Never Your Heart”. This album was originally finished in October of 2013 and was scheduled to be my first physical release. Due to various issues the album has sat dormant during that time. With the release for physical product still several months off I have decided that I would prefer to get the album out an into the world as soon as I was able. I realize this release comes very shortly after my last album “Come On, Ghost." but I believe the two albums represent polar opposites.

I believe this album represents some of my heaviest and noisiest material to date. The album is mostly composed of bitwise operations in Supercollider with some additional production in Reaktor and Reaper.

Experimental radio show from Rejections

Decoder hasn't left much of a footprint at FMA recently, while we've been working out the kinks at our website, but we're to get back into the swing of things by sharing this new work from Michael Hann, aka Rejections. The Jt Wrks are an hour long installment in Hann's experimental radio show, Transmit to Fade; Sonic Router described it aptly as "...an incredibly different exploration of musical tension," composed as it is of contextually varied and subsequently distorted field recordings. Hann describes it...

Transmit to Fade (T2F) is an extension of the nervous system which runs through and from the Teesside based Reject and Fade label, which is managed by producer, writer and film maker Rejections (aka Michael Hann) and will be broadcasted on the international digital radio station Basic FM.

The first episode from T2F is called The Jt Wrks, a soundscape created by Rejections out of field recordings and samples taken on a family holiday in Whitby in 2009. The piece unfolds in a dreamlike manner to explore the finite nature of memory, the tensions inherent in familial relationships, time and loss.

Happy Anniversary, Stealing Orchestra

Stealing Orchestra have been amazingly generous contributors to the free music world for a decade. The orchestra has provided a prolific free netlabel (also at Free Music Archive) featuring their work and the works of fellow Portuguese bands.

In 2011, Stealing Orchestra released their concept album DELIVERANCE, containing nine new tracks and celebrating the 10th anniversary of the band's netlabel You Are Not Stealing Records and 13 years of making albums together. [press release]

Now Stealing Orchestra is celebrating their 15th birthday and are giving digital versions of all of their albums as gifts to the world, including DELIVERANCE.

Happy birthday, Stealing Orchestra, and thank you so much!
