Vanessa Amara Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The most elegant of noise labels, Posh Isolation, continue their recent descent into kinder, more gentler experiments. Vanessa Amara made the lovely drone record You're Welcome Here a while ago, the duo offering low-key streams of sound with the occasional dramatic and bell-tolling payoff. They're back with Manos which sounds as shiny and beautified as many of the recent synthings the label's been putting out, such as the wonderful Buy Corals Online.
Vanessa Amara is the duo of Birk Gjerlufsen and Victor Kjellerup: new album You’re Welcome Here uses such majestic instrumentation as church organ and a string quartet to produce dense, grand stacks of sonics. Some distance from their previous techno dabblings. Vinyl release on Copenhagen label Posh Isolation.
On vinyl after its release last year on tape, Vanessa Amara’s Both of Us, along with the sister recording from the previous year, King Machine. The work of Birk Gjerlufsen Nielsen and Victor Kjellerup Juhl, and some of the strongest new work from the Danish experimental genre. Recorded in a church using organ, synth, piano, tape loops and guitar. From Posh Isolation.
