More from ORG records

March 18th, 2009

Capillary Action Sound like the progressive music I grew up on, from Gentle Giant to Gong through Zappa and many more/ Sophisticated but not in a pretentious way and taing the music a step further, always demanding and surprising, Jonathan Pfeffer music is quite shocking at first, but is worth the effort.

Frances Castle

March 18th, 2009

Transistor Six is the musical project of Artist/Illustrator Frances Castle. She started making music in the mid to late 1990’s on an old 4 track tape machine. Around about 1998 the Californian label ‘Black Bean and Placenta’ put out the first Transistor Six single (it was a one sided 12″!) The record became a John Peel favourite and got good reviews.
Frances eventually abandoned her old 4 track, and got to work, chopping and splicing and sampling old sounds on her computer, until she had made some thing warped and weird and new.
The Hardy tree ( by Frances Castle ): “These first few Hardy Tree recordings were inspired by my local London neighbourhood, both past and present. From early field covered hills to its Victorian hay day, and 20th century sprawl. Imagined music for then and now. The sound of creaking piano’s playing in parlours, echoing over transistor radios, bird song and traffic. Music for the all people that used to walk these same streets, and inhabit these houses”.

 The Hardy Tree is the brand new project from illustrator/ artist Frances Castle, who previously recorded under the name Transistor Six

ANThology

March 18th, 2009

 

This is lofi at its best. I have downloaded one of Ant`s albums ( Antony Harding ). The first thing I`ve actually noticed was the art work and it looked like I am going to enjoy this. Beautiful childlike illustrations. Then I`ve started listening to the real adorable little songs, simple and minimal sounding. After reading and searching some more I have found those links to this lofi alt folk scene and Suzanne Rhatigan, Jack Hayter, Darren Hayman, the 12 bar club  and Hefner.
Ant is a singer songwriter growing up in the Isle of Wight. After 10 years of bedroom writing and recording on a 4 trk, he started performing at the 12 bar club supporting Suzanne Rhatigan. Shortly after that he`d started recording with her and with John Morrison at their lofi recording facility Cushi Productions on an old reel to reel 8 trk quarter inch tape.He had released 13 albums since then. Check out Magpies acoustic of the last record.
