I’m pretty happy (and relieved) to announce the two latest editions on organized music, one a cd the other a cassette. Both by Greek artists active in the local and intenational music scene and both find their creators in top form, fresh documents by two great emerging musicians. First is the ‘Honey’ cassette by Sister Overdrive, an eclectic 38min trip down electroacoustic and noise byways. Then there’s the solo debut by one Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, titled ‘Stroke by Stroke’. Dimitra, who we first met in the ap’strophe duo with Ferran Fages (see their two albums on etude and another timbre), lays here a forceful statement using and mis-using a zither as well as objects she usually keeps around. Like her aformentioned duo, this is seriously uncompromising stuff, the kind that truly deserves to be labeled as a “personal statement”.
Please scroll down or click on the titles to see details on each release. Bandcamp downloads will be up soon (already up for ‘Honey’ actually) for those of you who are digitally inclined. Once again, thank you for your part in bringing forward this beautiful music.
