The first solo electric studio LP from guitarist Bill Orcutt, a work of deep-space beauty, harmonic complexity, and dark dissonance that marks a stunning landmark in his form-destroying trajectory.
Orcutt’s pachinko-parlor pacing, marked by unraveling clockspring accelerandos crashing into unexpectedly suspended tones, is still in evidence, but with this release his developing melodicism maps a near-contemplative mental realm, orbiting St. Joan-era Loren Connors more than the cascading treble clatter of his duo LPs with Chris Corsano and others.
Ol Man River played on the show 18.6.17, The World Without Me playing on the show this week (2.7.17).

1997-2017: 20 YEARS of MONIKA ENTERPRISE – WE CELEBRATE WITH MONIKA WERKSTATT
Gudrun Gut, the artistic powerhouse behind labels Monika Enterprise and Moabit Musik is a musician with an extraordinary legacy – be it as a member of Berlin’s legendary act Malaria, OceanClub, her acclaimed solo projects or recently a collaboration with Faust’sHans Joachim Irmler. Gudrun Gut has a proven track record of successfully connecting with like-minded artists on unusual paths of creativity. She’s an outstanding example of someone who refuses to compromise their artistic vision.
Monika Werkstatt has its origins in collective workshops and in shared interactions. By sharing their own challenges and achievements later on with an audience, this opened a gateway to a further feedback and creative dialogue. Every moment, every gesture, every communication has been about empowerment, both individually and as a group.
So what is this release really about?
Gudrun’s fellow Monika members – AGF, Beate Bartel, Lucrecia Dalt, Danielle De Picciotto, Islaja, Barbara Morgenstern, Sonae, Pilocka Krach – travelled from Berlin and assembled in the creative oasis of Uckermark. The goal was to create and record without any of the usual pressures and distractions that you’d anticipate in a group context. Once the recordings were completed, representatives of the group were delegated roles for a finished production – some sequenced and mixed the recordings into their own tracks, while others built their own from the material recorded. The results succeed in showcasing the community as a group, as well as portraying singular pieces of art derived from a collective process.
Playing selections on the show on the 2nd July.
Available now on double vinyl or CD, check it out at Monika Enterprise.

Watch out groovers, there are three hot new releases heading your way mid-late June from our chums at Enfant Terrible/Goiland Elektro records but you will need to jump on them quick as they are all limited to 200 copies. Here is the lowdown:
Europ Europ – Songs From The Heart (LP, 200 copies + 10 copies special edition)
Expected around mid June
Europ Europ returns to Enfant Terrible… the band is no longer a duo as they recruited a new member: Mrs Europ on harp… this addition to the band and the sound is significant… the music has become more dreamlike and hypnotic… still the analogue primitive rhythms are there… making this nothing short of contemporary ritual music…
6 track, 12″ vinyl
Ian Martin – Rites Of Passage (12″ EP, edition of 200 copies, screen printed sleeve)
Expected around mid June
Ian Martin should be no stranger to people who are into elektro and trippy electronics… with releases on Bunker, Panzerkreuz and Strange Life his reputation is quite settled… for Gooiland Elektro he came up with four tracks filled with dark beats… from pounding to spacey… elektro and EBM influenced with industrial tendencies…
4 track, 12″ vinyl
Zosima – Apropos Of The Wet Snow (LP, 200 copies)
Expected around mid June
Zosima already delivered some great releases in the field of techno, post-techno and industrial music… this for example on his own Noiztank label. For Enfant Terrible he crafted a dark industrial soundscape record… post-techno for connoisseurs… recommended to fans of Oake, Kerridge, Shaped Noise and Mondkopf…
6 track, 12″ vinyl
