R9 – Karla Borecky - “Still In Your Pocket” LP
Solo piano LP by Idea Fire Company cohort. Seven vignettes of revolving melodies, at once humble and profound. Recorded 2007-2010
R8 – Ian William Craig - “A Turn of Breath” LP
The premiere LP by trained opera singer Ian William Craig. Twelve works for voice and 1/4″ tape, recorded from 2011-2013.
R7 – Annea Lockwood - “Ground Of Being” CD
Presenting four pieces from the years 1996 to 2013. Three delicate sound art works, which vary from recordings of vents on the bottom of the ocean, transposed bat calls, and sloshing water. Along with one prepared piano piece, “Ear-Walking Woman,” here performed by Lois Svard.
R5 – Sean McCann – “Music For Private Ensemble” LP
McCann’s first new solo album since 2011′s The Capital. Written, recorded, and laboriously edited over the course of 17 months, it demonstrates a more serious study of orchestration and timbre than his previous work, revealing McCann’s most refined work to date.
R4 – Idea Fire Company – “Rags To Riches” LP
An edited and remastered issue of a tape by the IFCO quartet. Rags To Riches is a live record documenting pieces from 2003 through 2005. Exhibiting a contemplative and well-informed use of electronics, radio, and voice. Their mechanical and uncompromising aesthetic is pronounced, and Rags To Riches reminds us all why Idea Fire Company are such an important contemporary outfit.
R1 – Sean McCann & Matthew Sullivan – “Vanity Fair” LP
…Lush and enchanting. The pieces are quite varied, ranging from the majestic to the tormented, occasionally synthesizing an almost humorous blend of the two. Includes a manipulated animal and glockenspiel march, a chamber string and glass rhapsody, and a somber harp and phone ballad – it challenges the listener and expresses the development of both acclaimed artists.
R3 – Troy Schafer – “Evening Song Awaken” CDr
Full color artwork in jewel case, with hand numbered and stamped insert.

“Prelusion” LP (Root Strata)
“The definitive version of this triptych of tectonic drift originally released as a CD-R on the artists’ own label in 2011. ‘Our Silhouette’, which blankets the whole of the first side with jewel like piano runs and distant fading synths, may be one of McCann’s most elegant moves. The reverse holds two tracks of long form organ / string plateaus that float elegantly in space, refracting light & sound in patterns around the head.”
