Here at Linear Obsessional you may have noted we have a fondness for squeezeboxes and free improvisation, which is why we jumped at the chance to release an album by the amazing British accordionist Mike Adcock (once of Accordions Go Crazy amongst others). “Accord” is a collection of improvised duets with a series British improvising musicians – and is a wonderful showcase for Mike’s sensitivity as an improviser and his wonderful musicality as a accordionist.
Kicking off the Christmas releases for 2015, I’m happy to welcome an artist that’s almost become a regular – Tetarise. With his usual high quality and high power beats, this five track EP gives us everything we expect from the artist and more.
Tetarises’ tracks are always epic and fast, verging on the trance but taking roots from IDM and electronica in their finest forms as well. What we get in Stop this moment is resounding basses and echoing arpeggios (The Inner Light), detailed and punctual beats similar to Solar Fields (In Time) and a unique mix of Indian Sitar and dance in the final track Bollywood Hero. It works!
“Things Left Unsaid” is not only the testimony of a precise moment, but rather the result of a long research, composition and improvisation done by the band: there’s a common area where musical elements from diametrically opposed musical worlds such as jazz and contemporary music, rock and blues coexist without forgetting the melodic vocation in each composition.
Throughout recorded history, cosmologies and cosmogonies, including scientific models, have been proposed to explain observations of the Universe. The earliest quantitative geocentric models were developed by ancient Greek philosophers and Indian philosophers. Over the centuries, more precise astronomical observations led to Nicolaus Copernicus’s heliocentric model of the Solar System and Johannes Kepler’s improvement on that model with elliptical orbits, which was eventually explained by Isaac Newton’s theory of gravity. Further observational improvements led to the realization that the Solar System is located in a galaxy composed of billions of stars, the Milky Way. It was subsequently discovered that our galaxy is just one of many. On the largest scales, it is assumed that the distribution of galaxies is uniform and the same in all directions, meaning that the Universe has neither an edge nor a center. Observations of the distribution of these galaxies and their spectral lines have led to many of the theories of modern physical cosmology. The discovery in the early 20th century that galaxies are systematically redshifted suggested that the Universe is expanding, and the discovery of the cosmic microwave background radiation suggested that the Universe had a beginning. Finally, observations in the late 1990s indicated the rate of the expansion of the Universe is increasing indicating that the majority of energy is most likely in an unknown form called dark energy. The majority of mass in the universe also appears to exist in an unknown form, called dark matter.
Linear Obsessional is proud to present “Tape Loops” – the fruit of several months’ labour by the Colorado based composer c.reider. Getting deep into the process and working with thrift-store cassettes he uses a number of radical techniques to create his tape loops, including lengthening the tape, shredding it , making new tapes from tiny fragments and reassembling them.
The only being, or entity, so far, that was, is, and always will be here for you is the universe. You always get guidance… the only guidance that makes sense. Even if sometimes it feels like you ended up in no man’s land, even if you feel isolated, lonely and miserable, remember – if it’s not a blessing, even in disguise, it’s a very valuable lesson then. The universe will not allow you to quit when there’s still so much to do here on Earth. And the changes… are just something that you have to welcome. Without the changes there wouldn’t be much point in existence on this planet. Farewell, The Damaged One. Everything can be healed with time. Even you.

During live studio sessions, they recorded several improvised tracks as a duo in 2015 in St. Petersburg, the result of which is their debut album.
Absolutely black, resolutely extremist, metallically chaotic, at the crossroads of experimental garage and industrial boogie, blues and psychotic Transylvanian noisy, Grand Guru’s kinda rock’n’roll is brought to the world, without an epidural, in form of birth of the monsters and nightmares that haunt our Rouen-based sorcerer.
