experimental audio research All Things Being Equal (12", £15.50)label: Dekorder
Volume 5 in Dekorder's series of highly limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12" releases to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the label. It comes out simultaneously with Vol. 6 (Excepter) and 7 (Black To Comm). Previous entries in the series had been exclusive releases by Pye Corner Audio, Ensemble Economique, Kemialliset Ystävät and Alien Radio. Future contributions will feature new & exclusive recordings by Leyland Kirby, Bill Kouligas (PAN Records) and Vindicatrix. Hybrid-Vinyl is a newly devised combination of a Picture-Disc on one side and a regular vinyl release on the other. The audio will be cut into the black vinyl side to utilise the superior audio quality of classic vinyl (compared to the often weaker sounding picture disc pressings). E.A.R. is Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom. He is one of the founders of legendary UK bands Spacemen 3 and Spectrum and currently works as a highly respected producer for Panda Bear, MGMT and others. While Spacemen 3 and Spectrum were mostly relying on song based structures E.A.R. explores free-form (and long-form) mind-altering drone based compositions. Previous albums came out on a diverse range of labels such as Sympathy For The Record Industry, Big Cat, Atavistic and Mille Plateaux and featured collaborations with Thomas Köner and Andy Mellwig (Porter Ricks), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Kevin Martin (The Bug, King Midas Sound) and Eddie Prévost (AMM). All Things Being Equal is a brand new composition by Pete Kember and it is the first E.A.R. release since 2005's Worn To A Shadow.
