Artist: KESZLER, ELI
Title: Livingston
Format: LP
Label: Rare Youth
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Debut LP by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Eli Keszler. A distinct composition in four parts, Livingston is a brooding and dark meditation for drums, crotales, guitar, clarinet, bowed percussion, Fender Rhodes, nail violin, and tapes. This is a rare kind of solo record, in that Elis obvious instrumental virtuosity is tempered with a refined sense of composition and emotional space. You dont get the sense that this is the work of a single musician. Furious outbursts of raw percussive energy are kept in check by floating, distended melodies, and moments of silence are interrupted by the jarring clarity of high-pitched bells being bowed at close intervals. At times sounding like an Indonesian gamelan being put through the wringer, and at others like the massive drone of an aeolian harp being played by the wind -- Livingston effectively combines the influences of composers like Giacinto Scelsi and Iannis Xenakis with the improvisational energy and atmosphere of an artist like Keiji Haino. Clocking it at just over 23 minutes, this is a potent piece of music and an auspicious debut by a very talented young artist. Limited edition of 300, with hand-screened covers. Definitely recommended to fans of Mirror, Organum, ESPdisk, nmperign, Jandek, Evan Parker and Paul Lytton, Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, Phil Niblock, etc." -Rare Youth

Artist: MARSHALL, LARRY
Title: Queer And Wonder
Format: LP
Label: Rare Youth
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"This album is a collection of songs from Larry Marshall, an elusive and mythic figure whose self-described Gothic Folk...from the future is presented here for the first time in glowing, psychedelic stereo-surround, etched on black wax. Larry has been living in Rhode Island for his entire life, and has performed at many of the storied (and now defunct) venues in and around Providence, RI. Despite this long history, his music is barely known outside of a small circle of close friends and die-hard local fans. Queer And Wonder is a collection of songs from Larrys catalog: three tracks were previously released on a small cassette edition from Unskilled Labor, and a track by the band Box Patrol (w/Larry on vocals and pitch-pipe), was previously released on a CDR by the legendary Fort Thunder Records. The LP is rounded off w/ a few live tracks from a solo gig in Manchester, England, a live radio session, and some collaborations unearthed from tapes found in Larrys apartment in West Warwick, RI. Edition of 350, covers designed by CF, w/ inserts / lyric sheet." -Rare Youth
