   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.

Price: $13.95

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.
Edition of 560
 

Price: $12.95

R3 – Troy Schafer – “Evening Song Awaken” CDr


Schafer’s ability to intertwine passionate composition and technical proficiency is rare and inspiring. Throughout the album counter-themes emerge and propel the pieces though frantic climaxes. These flares are contrasted though many slow pastoral reflections. You can really hear his devotion to the music.

Full color artwork in jewel case, with hand numbered and stamped insert.
Edition of 200. *Last copies

Sean McCann Distribution

“Ten Impressions for Piano & Strings” LP (Root Strata)

RS97“Simply gorgeous LP that lives up to its name and then some. Besides the piano and strings (which Sean plays himself), you get some very fine processing and editing, a compliment I do not hand out very often these days. Sean is a master of orchestration and layering, not to draw attention to its cleverness, but to make the piece of music as good as it can be. Somewhat in the Budd/ Eno Ambient range, Ten Impressions For Piano And Strings also has a darker quality at times. This is a very, very nice record. Oh! Also superb cover art that really fits the LP.” – Scott Foust
Second Pressing of 200
 

Price: $14.95

 

“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.”
Edition of 500
 

Price: $13.95

“Sincere World” CD (Amethyst Sunset)

CD version of LP, includes two additional songs. The CD master sounds especially lovely. 

Price: $8.95
