Loooooove it. In the same general vein as the Good Morning Tapes release, but without the ancestral homage (an homage that I can't get enough of). Can't tell how much is improvised or not from the liners, but if this was improvised, holy cow. A+, D.K.!

@ shakemake and walkingtrees, the Pontiac Streator tape put out by Lilerne Tapes is sooooooo good.

With no US distribution, I'll be paying crazy prices no matter what. Bummer.

This is a wonderful release. The music is gorgeous. Incredible that it is a debut. On the same level, IMO, with another full length debut, Colonial Patterns, and we all know how that guy's career has turned out. I do not listen to house music and ... See full review

Thanks so much for the heads up, volotom. I slept on the tape and bought the vinyl reissue without delay from Séance Centre after reading seeing your comment. Such a lovely album.

Great vibes. I could do without the absurdly pretentious and pointless title of the EP, though.

Hard to believe there's no vinyl press for this yet. Somebody make it happen. Just really lovely stuff.

Is this really not going to be repressed? Give me a break, Resonance.

I cannot begin to describe how stunning this mix is. If the DJ/selector is out there...if you read this...more please. MORE I say! I was able to spot Joanna Brouk, La Monte Young (I think) and a loop Huerco S with some delights added over the top that ... See full review

It is to your great detriment to blow off Numero Group due to this one pressing. Most of their vinyl is top notch, dead quiet, and the catalogue speaks for itself.

Outstanding release. Pulls from a wide palette of electronic and ambient influences. As ambient, you should be able to ignore it, but the compositions are so well thought out and executed and packed with such lovely details, that it is hard to ignore ... See full review

Who in the hootenanny is in charge of vinyl reissues at Impulse / the Alice Coltrane estate? Repress already, you dullards! It's absurd!

I own Personal Rock on the OG vinyl. ;-) But, if it has that bonus track from Japan on it, I'll be plunking don dollars for the reissue.

I realize it is churlish to complain about this, but why in the world did 12th Isle not do a double LP and include ALL the tracks?

Indeed, darklands. They are shipping me my copy as I type this. My subwoofer and I are very excited.

My fault for poor wording. Boomkat does not charge $35 for shipping. It would cost $35 total. The complaint is that if there is no US distribution partner for the release, those of us Stateside have to suffer (1) the exchange rate (pound and euro are ... See full review

Hi JCB91,
I know Boomkat will happily ship to the US, but do they have a stateside distribution partner? Because if not, we in the USA will have to pay $35. Copies of the black vinyl (white sold out) up for sale all over the UK and Europe, but nothing ... See full review

Someone please tell me there's going to be US distribution for this. Paying $35 for it to ship from Boomkat is not a happy circumstance.

posted a comment on X.Y.R. - Quiet Time. about 1 year ago
IMO, every bit as good as the Huerco S tape on Quiet Time, and probably XYR's best to date. A serious tropical meditation with pulsating synth bass that propels the track from start to finish and carries you the distance. Got it on repeat.

Why in the hootenanny does ECM not release stuff on vinyl for that matter? I would FREAK OUT if I could get Extended Play on vinyl. Agree: this album is a MONSTER. That Billy Killson drum solo in Juggler's Parade makes me lose my mind every time I ... See full review

To be fair, all of this stuff is ultimately a total rip-off of Eno who ripped off lord-knows-who. Just enjoy it.

It's a winner. I loved me some Pole and (early) Deadbeat back in the day. This strikes me as an evolution and improvement on that sound.

Uhhhhh, you can just go to Third Man Records, the label distributing it, and order it for $30. These price gougers ought to be banned from the marketplace.

Probably the EP title and song titles. They reference Deleuze. Which is gross. But I do love Don't DJ.

Anyone have word on when the repress will be released through a vendor/distributor in the United States?

Forced Exposure says a repress is coming its way as well. So, not only can shysters, to use the American sobriquet, take a walk, there is in addition no need for North American residents to pay import shipping. Unless of course you cannot wait for US ... See full review

It is utterly absurd that no label has stepped up to reissue Alcachofa on vinyl that includes Y.G.H., What You Say, and Fool's Garden. 4x12 would be fine by me. Make it happen.

Agree. I hear more depth in the second release. That does not make the first chopped liver, but I like the second LP more.

How is it that we only get four cuts? This is some of the most beastly jazz-fusion-funk I have ever heard. Be aware that these are 45rpm platters. The sound quality is beyond reproach. About 28 minutes total or 7 minutes per side. Hopefully the ... See full review

I would say that Personal Rock is much closer in spirit to the seminal Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records. Personal Rock is not as kick drum driven as the Farben releases. You can literally hear LFJR being birthed here. Personal Rock deserves a reissue every ... See full review

About time. I had emailed Mr. Jelinek through Faitiche a couple of years ago and he told me he had plans to reissue the vinyl. Salivating, grip sweats, etc.

My sense is that this is private press only. It's not going to get any formal distribution. Discogs or bust. For those that already own the Cuban Studies/Fuel Efficiency 7", the private press market value on Barrio Outreach is looking, well, painful.
