Etudes Vol. 1 by Petridisch & VI by five Bubble criteria (Release date: 2 Sept 22)
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.
