John Elliot's (Emeralds) always on point Spectrum Spools label give this classy album a much-needed vinyl reissue. Originally released back in 2006 on Carpark Records and later on Kranky, it's an album that truly deserves to remain in print. This fine work of Michael Jones and Turk Dietrich (Second Woman) has the sort of fuzzy, dense and droning emotive textures that will appeal to fans of Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine etc.
Second Woman is the project of two men, Turk Dietrich and Joshua Eustis from Belong and Telefon Tel Aviv respectively. The pair have tried to distill a number of genres, including house, techno, footwork, and dub, to create something that isn't any of them. Released on the mighty Tresor label.
Joshua Eustis (ex-Nine Inch Nails, Telfon Tel Aviv) and Turk Dietrich (Belong) return to Spectrum Spools with their sophomore full length as Second Woman. Glitchy as possible before breaking out of musicality, programming through code to create twisted technofied beats. A definite must for fans of Autechre or Mark Fell. Comes with download code that includes a bonus remix by Gabor Lazar.
Alums of drone contingent Belong and the somewhat legendary Telefon Tel Aviv combine to become ever stronger as Second Woman, their new project cased in as many things they know about electronic music as possible. That is to say: a pounding wall of techno with beats that glitch in and out of the framework to mess everything up, the duo using additive, dubbed effects while also letting the music self-perpetuate. This is a collage of electronic ideas tethered together in rather familiar trappings.
