Side 7: Andy Futreal — Night Train to Xi’an / For Wenchuan

A vivid soundscape travelogue collaged from field-recordings and performances recorded in China during. 2008-2010. Andy has created vivid journey out of everything from a metal dishrack to the ambient sounds of Zhengzhou train station and the overnight train from to Xi’an. A piano score is derived from Sichuan Wenchuan earthquake gravity wave traces mixed with edited VOA broadcast. A haunting tribute to a harrowing disaster. (www.myspace.com/andyfutreal)

Side 8: BabelMorpheum (1-4) / 4 Bowls / 4 Japan

Falling somewhere between the 20th century minimalists and the no-wave noise composers of the 1980s, Morpheum explores the tranquility and violence of dream states though a suite of duets and quartets for piano, mallet instruments, electric guitar and Taiko-inspired percussion. Languid, evolving melody lines sleepily weave through each other before cascading arpeggios awaken like a tsunami crashing through a nuclear reactor. Subtle and epic, peaceful and cacophonous, safe and perilous as an ocean or a dream.

Andy Futreal and Jakob Rehlinger (Moonwood) were  previously paired up on a split tape released by Folkwaste Recordings.

Side 5: Theo AngellLive @ Secret Project Robot 4-17-11

Mightily impressed by his Auraplinth and Dearly Beloved albums, we’re pretty excited to present this 40 minute live set by Theo Angell (JOMF, Hall of Fame) accompanied by one Hamish Kilgour (The Clean) recorded at Secret Project Robot in March. Arcane Eastern ragas and spooky Appalachian rags; ethereal whispers and raging acoustic freak-outs; jaunty alpine whistles and deep desert ceremonies. This here is bare bones psyche-folk wedding the weird and the beautiful to make babies with odd numbers of limbs and psychic eyes.

Side 6: Moonwood – The Path

Recorded by Moonwood during the same sessions as the mostly instrumental River Ghosts material, these nine vocal songs are vaguely woven together by Taoist mysticism and modern day beards. Southwestern reverb, droning psychedelic fuzz, Eastern percussion and plucked acoustic instruments mix with ritual chants and soft-spoken tales about death and small woodland animals.
