Our dear friends at Lost Tribe Sound start the year with two powerful releases, though I’ll concentrate on one today (with the other in the next week or so). This one is by Belgian composer ‘t Geruis (a rather unusual name, which, in Dutch, means “The Noise” or “The Murmur“). The album, at least the four rather remarkable tracks available to hear, have a grainy, organic quality to the loops which build and collapse in a still-life manner. The music has more in common with graphic art or experimental film than it does with cold, staid experimental music. Quite an interesting release. For more on the artist, there’s a great interview over at Cyclic Defrost.
