"Known for his visceral free form electronic live performances and tireless work promoting New Zealand outsider sounds to the world with his label End Of The Alphabet Records, Wellington sound artist Noel Meek has released possibly his most accessible album yet with We Contain Multitudes. Embracing a sunny and sprawling sonic palette, the album recalls classic immersive electronic works by synthesizer legends Terry Riley and Suzanne Ciani." - Under The Radar NZ.

Artist: MEEK, NOEL
Title: The Mysteries Of Extremophilic Folk
Format: Lathe Cut LP
Label: Knotwilg
Country: Belgium
Price: $30.00
Lathe cut LP in edition of 120 copies.
"Meeks second second solo album, however, marks the first release for long-simmering Belgian label Knotwilg, lathe cut and wrapped in an acid trip cover cartoon by Indonesian artist Wedhar Riyadi. The music has all the hallmarks of the international instrumental weirdo underground - grating electronics, analogue bloops, and a total resignation to the gods of entropy. But the artists vision isnt bleak or brutish; "Extremophilic Folk" is a playful, outright fun listen.
"Meeks analogue set-up leaves no space for comfy quantisation, and the wonky keyboard and drum sequences that fail to interlace on the aptly titled opener "The Churn" could potentially realign into a groovier shape. But the nonsensical arrhythmic landscape is ultimately far more compelling, and Meek guides his set-up into uniquely strange moments of delightful disorder. Submerged major key synth melodies play vital roles throughout, weaving their way between small vacant spaces amid the mania on "Rails Toward The Sky" and "Weedflowers" then heading right into the foreground on the luminescent finale "Sunshine Over Helsinki". The latter could almost be an inverted mix of Mike Oldfields "Hergest Ridge", sped up a dozen rpm. "The Mysteries of Extremophilic Folk" illustrates Meeks joyous approach to music, being evocative of a child joyously colouring with no regard for keeping within the lines”- The Wire.
