WERNECK / WRETCHMOND: "ONEIRIC HARDWARE"

Coming v. soon - the inaugural release on 19F3...



"Manipulated field-recordings of hard-drives and server-arrays from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and Yeovil, Somerset."

It's also a helluva lot more, ah, fun than it sounds.

SALEM Vs GUCCI MANE

Lovin' these synthetic GothRap re-imaginings - "Round One" is like Atlanta seen through a fine veil of late-70's Sheffield rain - strangely touching (all things considered); a pang of sadness for something that you can no longer touch - while "Bird Flu" is ticcin' nervous-sounding hi-hats and downpitched cough-syrup vocals, oppressive n unhinged...joints achin', unhinged by fever; fibromyalgic beats. An un-Screwed mix.

Call me old-fashioned, but I'd like a physical release of these tunes.

Wish I'd had a camera when I saw The Human League for 75p in the top-floor Union Bar.
