Beyond happy to welcome Petridisch to the superpolar Taïps artist roster. Besides his musical output, Thor is known for running the fish prints label and his involvement in Ilya S’s I Heart Noise ihrtn.net (until 2020). Both are an intrinsic part of the Boston underground. I sincerely hope that you will be as captivated by Petridisch’s (anti-)etudes as much as I am. Contemporary classical? Minimal music? Maybe, but certainly the Petridisch way:
Etudes Vol. 1 (C-20), a red transparent C-20 EP featuring six tracks, is yours for 6.50 €. Please also do read Petridisch’s extensive and very interesting liner notes.
Today’s other (pre-)release of the day is five Bubble criteria’s VI. It is, or better: has become a side project of bleed Air. VI could actually have been a bleed Air album, but it somehow drifted away from the usually more experimental (vintage) electronic approach during the recording process … and features some rather longform tracks built with experimental guitar (mainly the Fender Jaguar Baritone VI – hence the title), sparse analogue electronics, tape effects and spoken word in various forms, thanks to the always amazing Chip Perkins and a first appearance in this regard by Robin Barnick. Even Modelbau’s there, kindly letting me use one of his recordings for ‘Aether Aleatorica‘.
VI, a beautiful fosfo orange, transparent C-31 album is yours for 7.50 € + postage.
