New one from Jon Brooks. This time on a new label I’ve never heard of called “More Than Human Records.” After the recent vinyl reissue of his debut “Music For Thomas Carnacki” that sold out in no time, this is his first new release since last year’s “52” on Clay Pipe Music. There will be an ‘Evening Edition’ “52” vinyl reissue in June if you missed that as well.

Walberswick sounds more minimal, but fits perfectly in his strong discography. It’s full of little and warm analogue melodies; especially “How The Land Lies.” It’s pure and simple with a great repeating and transforming melody. The whole record is composed and performed on the Buchla Electronic Music Box, a modular analog synthesizer. This reduction, like Alessandro Cortini did in a similar way with a different result, makes Walberswick a perfect, fitting record.

Don’t wait on this, if you’re interested. I know that it’s almost sold out from the label. UK folks can get it from Norman Records in a couple of weeks here.

The Details

From the ‘secret histories and memory loops' of The Advisory Circle via the ‘flawless
retrovintage production values’ of his disco alter-ego Georges Vert and the ‘simple and
beautiful compositions’ of his solo work, Jon Brooks holds a unique place in contemporary
electronic music. Walberswick, a brand new long player, is a sensory blend of ambient
excursions, tone pieces, soundscapes, rhythmical pulsations, and wry humorous asides, all
composed and performed on the legendary Buchla Electronic Music Box. An intensely
beautiful ambient journey.

Walberswick is released on May 19th, 2015 in a limited edition of 300 copies.

Price $20.8
