Artist: Lugano Fell
Title: Slice Repair
Format: CD
Label: Baskaru
Member of the house tech duo Swayzak, James Taylor after twelve years spent with that project, wanted to try something totally different, quieter and more detail-focused. Lugano Fell born for this reason and SLICE REPAIR is their first official release. Divided into ten movements the album passes from wall of sounds to layers of tiny ambient samples mixed with noises and rhythms. Minimal but never sparse the sound palette create a cycling effect like a colored top that hits instruments that James put on the floor. Well, that could be a nice image but the sound is a little more structured than that: you can find alternance of fast forwarded tape sounds, treated samples and also some acoustic instrument creating a surreal soundtrack which time to time could also sound psychedelic. You'll find the sum of it all is the closing fourteen minutes of "Two hundred clocks and a metre", track that sounds like an acoustic version of Glenn Branca guitar orchestrations created with slices of acoustic guitar samples, mixed with concrete noises.
