CARDINAL RECORDS PRESENTS
CARD4 “CELESTIAL HIEROGLYPHS” LP
FOSSILS / WINTERS IN OSAKA
Here we have recent documentation of two evolving units.
Side A FOSSILS “HIEROGLYPHS”
CardRecs homeboys Fossils, with the bedrock laid down by Daniel Farr and David Payne, open the record with a slithering space beam, slapped with sliding strings and streaking glass.
The second track is a dirty electronic wooze into ooze of looped electronics, creaked cassette all drizzled with mad saxophone chants by Robbie Michalchuk. Recorded somewhere in Ontario sometime in 2011.
SIDEB WINTERS IN OSAKA “CELESTIAL”
For a decade, Adam Jennings has been exploring different sonic realms with others under the guise of Winters In Osaka. Much like Payne and Fossils, Jennings has created a lengthy list of releases and collaborated with many artists, from local friends to familiar faces in the noise scene (see their page for a full list of cohorts facebook.com/wintersinosaka).
This record features the line-up of Jennings, Andy Lippoldt, Jim Haras, Mackenzie Chami and Neil Jordan. Recorded in December of 2011, one can only assume cold temperatures enhanced the already chilly atmosphere at the WIO camp.
Here we find a more reserved, melodic WIO stretching across three pieces. The opener is a slow slug moved along by guitar and drums, swelling with noise. We move on to an eerie distant piano met with fluttering electronic fry. The album ends with an ambient meditation staring at the tracks as the train approaches before fading out forever.
