The new UPLAND is in prod. and will be released via PHD very soon. Eat your heart out Autechre. This is the schizzle.
Also, there's a cool, rather extensive interview with b9/ORIGAMI GALAKTIKA over at Avantgarde-Metal. Read it.
No longer than a year after his "return to darkness" with You are silent, Lars Pedersen and his WHEN is back with a lesson in plunderphonics. Album no. 13 since the start 25 years ago, this one is something else: a mixtape/mashup to celebrate brilliant bandleader, pianist, mystic, philosopher and Afro-Futurist Sun Ra.
The first volume of WHEN's Homage Series, this singular saucer is a jam-packed jamboree of "cosmic jazz", where Lars borrowsónot stealsócuts, loops, adds and completely turns the universe of the legendary jazz-brother from planet no. 6 inside out. Pedersen's own Omniverse Arkestra, if you will.
This is not exploitation, or blaxploitation, or anything but a labour of love, respect and admirationófrom one space cadet to another.
Turn on, tune in, space out. And place your order here or there:
Next in this series, Vol. II: POMPEL OG PILT.
