Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer: Re:ECM

Review of the above is up at Cyclic here. Interesting release, and I feel I've just scratched the surface. The initial weariness over duration has been replaced by excitement at the sheer quantity of sound to explore. How rare does that happen!

Ricardo and Max are on a roll. They've also remixed Vladislav Delay's latest for Echochord, the originals are pretty good too, decent updates on the classic V Delay sound.

Moments of Re:ECM recall the submerged piano doodles of Loderbauer's NSI Plays Non Stanards. That is wonderful album. I don't mean for this to sound like the words of an ignoramus, but I once played it on Resonance FM alongside wax cylinder recordings from the 19th century and you could hardly hear the difference.
