Phew ltd cassette Vertical Jamming

Phew cassette “Vertical Jamming” Disciples

A scene-setter for a forthcoming LP of unheard material, Vertigo KO, coming soon on Disciples. Vertical Jamming rescues two expansive longform pieces from a tour only CD released in 2016, and adds a previously unreleased track, “Drone”.

Explaining the background to the music, Phew comments: “Drone was recorded in 2014. It is a track that expresses the mood of those days, guided by the sound of a very simple oscillator. At the time of the catastrophe in Japan in 2011 and the Fukushima nuclear accident, and the change of government in 2013, I didn’t feel like singing at that time, and instead started making music using a very simple oscillator. Cheers and Encore recorded alongside the album New World using two more complex synthesizers.

Recorded at Phew’s place in December 2015. Music by Phew. Originally issued on CD by Bereket and sold only at “A New World Tour” in 2016.

Kaoru Abe new CD 9770916@Ayler

Kaoru Abe CD (digipak) 9770916@Ayler, Sapporo – Doubt Music

– Doubtmusic has discovered a previously unreleased Kaoru Abe alto saxophone solo improvisation! This CD features a complete 30 minutes performance held in summer 1977 at a jazz cafe in Sapporo which was called “Ayler” and no longer exists since long time. We no longer talk about Abe’s voice ranging by ready-made musical concept. Even his silence has persuasiveness. His voice has an ubiquity which transcend new or old musical trends. We would like young music fans who have never heard of Kaoru Abe to listen to it. You will feel musical “something” you never notice.

Recorded on 16 September, 1977 at Ayler, Sapporo (recorded material provided by Mariko Nara).

$19
