ANNE-JAMES CHANTON & ANDY MOOR: Transfer/4 INBOUND/OUTBOUND 7” Unsounds
This is the fourth in ‘Transfer’ series of seven-inch vinyl outputs from this duo, comprising of poetry and musical intersections.
This a peculiar release that works remarkably well. I may abhor poetry in any form, but the vocals pitched in many a language folded over the top of throbbing ambience works well. A key focus on warping sub electronics and timing match the format and is cleverly paced and conceived and overall is a pleasure to listen to.
As usual with a single vinyl format like this there is little to speak of because of the sheer lack of listening fodder to sit down with. However, I applaud any vinyl release more often than not and for once there is actually something here worth immersing yourself within, shortly before have to switch the record over. ‘Transfer/4 INBOUND/OUTBOUND ‘ is one of those pieces of work I would like to hear on a full-length album alongside other tracks of this ilk.
