Sedimental Records Recent Releases

We are a little late with this one, but Sedimental Records returned late last year with a pair of releases.

AF JONES & DEREK ROGERS
Cedars

AARON RUSSELL
Red Guitar

We are happy to inform you that long running US experimental music label Sedimental ends its three-and-a-half-year hiatus this November with two new releases of which we are extremely proud. Red Guitar is the first solo document from Austin based Aaron Russell, long time guitarist for Weird Weeds and more recently Moonsicles. The disc comprises seven sparse, elegant and hypnotically repetitive guitar meditations that transfix the listener. Also being issued, Cedars is a live document performed in May of this year and is a remarkable collaboration between AF Jones and Derek Rogers both significant players independently in the US experimental electronic music scene. This purely improvised continuous set generated a magical result of unfolding textures, sounds and radiant atmospheres.

David Grubbs in Chicago, New Book Reviewed

On Friday, Grubbs will publish his first book since then, a formally adventurous prose poem called Now That the Audience Is Assembled (Duke), which obliquely describes a fictional musical performance that incorporates text-based score, free improvisation, instrument building, and durational extremes—the point of view shifts without warning and seemingly arbitrarily from third person to the mind of the musician to members of the audience. I’ve only read the 140-page book once, and I know I missed many of its nuances, but its audacity and provocation nonetheless moved me.

Dirk Serries New Releases and Tour Dates

COLIN WEBSTER & DIRK SERRIES – GARGOYLES (CD, Raw Tonk Records 2018)

Brand new on RAW TONK RECORDS is the duality between sax player Colin Webster and electric guitarist Dirk Serries. Gargoyles is the duo that pushes the envelope even further in their ongoing collaborations (KODIAN TRIO, TONUS, etc.).

DIRK SERRIES – EPITAPH (2xCD / 2xLP, Consouling Sounds 2018)

Dirk Serries’ ambient swansong, EPITAPH, is now available in a regular edition (2xCD or 2xLP) or a special limited edition (100 copies). This is a must for all vidnaObmana and Microphonics fans and the last in a chapter of a long history.

HAVNES/JÄRMYR/SERRIES
DISTANT CURVING HORIZON. THE PRIMAL BROKEN PASSAGE. BENEATH THE SCORCHING SUN (CD, Midira Records)
In 2015 three artists came together for a studio session: Dirk Serries on guitar, Tomas Järmyr (Yodok, Zu, Motorpsycho, Werl, Sunswitch, Saw) on drums and Eirik Havnes (Saw) on guitar. You might say this music originates in the 2014 releases “Ashes and Blues” by The Void Of Expansion (Serries/Järmyr) and “No Way Black” by SAW (Havnes/Järmyr). While both duos were planning new recording sessions, the idea of a collaboration emerged – and so a session was scheduled for May 16th 2015. This album is the result of what happened that day in a basement studio in downtown Trondheim. No written music, an all improvised first encounter. The result of this improvised session is a 55minutes long beast of different layers and styles. It´s jazzy, it´s krautrock, it´s spacerock, it´s drone and something inbetween.

SCATTERWOUND will play ROADBURN 2018 on April 20th 2018. Special guest will be JUSTIN K. BROADRICK.
Visit the ROADBURN website for all information.

The day after, SCATTERWOUND will also play Stratosphere’s new album release event :
April 21st 2018 – Bouckenborgh (Merksem, B).
