Collaged recordings of old vinyl records being played with cactus needles and dried agave leaves, an unexpectedly fascinating tactile approach to vinyl and dry nature.

Jerman, Jeph

Jerman, Jeph: Vinyl (Easy Discs)
Label: Easy Discs    
Released in: USA    

"Described on the insert as simply, "collaged recordings of old vinyl records being played with cactus needles and dried agave leaves". It sounds like it and sounds fantastic. "Sere" was the term that first came to mind. The dryness, not as in sterility but as in lack of moisture and enhanced clarity, is all over this music. There's a true tactile aspect as the needles and leaves race across the tracks. You even seem to pick up faint ghosts of recorded music; I'm not sure if this is even possible or if I'm suffering audio hallucinations. Actually, the third of four tracks manages to evoke a more aqueous feeling, the sounds more rounded and reverberant. Beautiful recording, highly recommended."-Brian Olewnick, Just Outside
