Fabio Selvafiorita & Valerio Tricoli – Death By Water

IV. Death by Water

Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell
And the profit and loss.
A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers.  As he rose and fell
He passes the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
(T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land, 1922)

Shinobu Nemoto – Improvisations #1

An epic album by Japanese artist Shinobu Nemoto.

“These five extended pieces for effects plus guitar were all recorded without overdubs in a single take, but they certainly do not sound improvised.  Nemoto pushes his blurred, smoldering, post-shoegaze noise into simple but effective variations on a theme of the arcing crescendo.  It seems that he’s capturing loops as he goes, and stacks the harmonically rich layers of distortion, E-bow drones, and throttled rumbles into incrementally dense constructs.  At the height of each of each of his crescendos, Nemoto offers a restrained guitar solo, at times in impressionist form of a high-lonesome slide guitar.  Nemoto plays tour guide to an imaginary mountain range, taking his audience up to the pinnacle and providing grandiose views from that vantage point.”

– Jim Haynes for The Wire
