Jim O'Rourke
Bad Timing

A classic from the infinitely capable Jim O’Rourke, treating the listener to four ten-ish minute guitar-led instrumentals, the guitar augmented with various other sounds. For all the noise-making found elsewhere in O’Rourke’s career, he certainly has a way with a melody, and each of these tracks leisurely explore the space around one. I’ve listened to Bad Timing many times, and suggest you do the same.

Jim O’Rourke & CM von Hausswolff
In, Demons, In!

Although he turned 50 earlier this year, In, Demons, In! shows that the legendary Jim O’Rourke has no intention of slowing down his prodigious life-long output any time soon. A collaboration of earthy drone with fellow experimentalist CM Von Hausswolff, the creative rivers are flowing very freely. 

Keiji Haino / Jim O'Rourke / Oren Ambarchi
This Dazzling, Genuine

Startling to note that this is already the eighth release from the free rock supergroup. The trio are masters at wrenching great textural and dynamic variety from the basic power trio format, which here is augmented with some unusual instrumental additions. O’Rourke plays EMS Synthi as well as often heavily-effected bass, Haino sings in English, and besides guitar tackles electronics, flute and toy piano. Ambarchi’s playing runs the gamut from subtle cymbal work to full-on frenzy. A characteristically lovely double LP presentation from Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label, designed by Stephen O’Malley and cut by Rashad Becker.

Phew / Oren Ambarchi / Jim O'Rourke
Patience Soup

Live recording of a performance featuring three heavy-weights of avant-garde and experimental music. Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi who have far too many previous collaborations to name, including Fennesz, Ulver, Faust play alongside Japanese avant-garde vocalist Phew. These masters of improv take a dynamic journey through the abstract and carry it with flawless tone and palette.

Jim O'Rourke
Sleep Like It's Winter

A forty-five minute ambient composition from everyone's favourite left-field indie rock dude Jim O'Rourke. Sleep Like It's Winter is piece of music of uncommon warmth, wrought from synths, pedal steel and a short wave radio. It will slowly envelope you, and before you know it, you'll be hibernating in its warm embrace.

Oren Ambarchi, Jim O'Rourke & U-zhaan
Hence

Jim O’Rourke and Oren Ambarchi are capable of producing stunning work at the drop of a hat, both solo and in many many combinations. Here they continue their dreamy series of duo albums, with the exciting addition of tabla player U-zhaan. Hence features two sides of seamlessly developing sound that exude a casual, beautiful mastery. On Editions Mego.

Oren Ambarchi & Jim O'Rourke
Behold

‘Behold’ is Oren Ambarchi and Jim O'Rourke’s second collaborative release. With Ambarchi mostly on Guitar and Drums and Jim O'Rourke playing a selection of Synthesizers and piano and both playing various other, sometimes unidentifiable things to create a minimalist, slow burning, repetitive, melodic rhythm.

Kassel Jaeger & Jim O'Rourke
Wakes On Cerulean

Not many have an output like Jim O’Rourke, with over a hundred albums and a collaborations list even longer. Wakes On Cerulean is his teaming up with french electroacoustic composer François Bonnet/Kassel Jaeger. The driving force behind the record being electronic processing and techniques, the results are glorious and harmonious ambience, intangible melodies and manipulated field recordings where the sources become completely obscured.

Christian Fennesz & Jim O'Rourke
It's Hard For Me To Say I'm Sorry

If there’s one certainty in life, it’s that Christian Fennesz on the guitar is going to sound beautiful and completely unlike a man playing the guitar. Working together with electronic-music scientist Jim O’Rourke, he’s made the lushest ambient of the summer, filled with gentle overdriven guitars and saturated synthesizers. It’s Hard For Me To Say I’m Sorry, but then again what do they have to apologize for? This album is great.

Akira Sakata & Jim O'Rourke With Chikamorachi & Merzbow
Flying Basket

Saxophonist Akira Sakata presents a furious five-way assault jam in conjunction with guitarist Jim O'Rourke and Chikamorachi (aka drummer Chris Corsano and double bassist/percussionist Darin Gray) with the added bonus of analogue electronics courtesy of Japanese overlord Masami Akita aka Merzbow.

Old News #7

Strictly vinyl only, courtesy of Editions Mego, the Old News series dips into the as-far-as-we-can-tell bottomless archive of a certain Jim O’Rourke. #7 provides you with two works from the mid-90s and one from 2011. Modular synths are the name of Jim’s game here, and really it is a little bit ridiculous how much good stuff this man has come up with.

Jim O'Rourke
Simple Songs

Let’s be clear, Jim O’Rourke has never stopped putting out records. But it’s been over a decade since he released an album of ‘proper music’ rather than noise/improv/jazz/electroacoustic/drone wonder. But now he’s back on Drag City with an album literally titled Simple Songs! Eight tracks, with lyrics and everything. Be excited.

YEAH


Loren Connors & Jim O'Rourke
Two Nice Catholic Boys

Those Two Nice Catholic Boys are also two highly creative guitarists: Loren Connors and Jim O’Rourke. This album on Family Vineyard provides three live improvisations plucked out from years of performing, and really it is just a pleasure to hear these two total pros responding to each other. Sometimes quiet and melodic, sometimes drenched in feedback, always compelling.

Jim O'Rourke
Old News #8

Old News #8, part of Editions Mego’s trawl through infinitely productive Jim O’Rourke’s archives, presents a single piece, ‘Mere’, over three sides of vinyl (the fourth side is the complementary ‘Merely’). An acoustic ensemble (including vocals!) are processed and by O’Rourke into a stunning piece of electroacoustics.

It was also the first time that the legendary New Yorkers would collaborate with O’Rourke. O’Rourke subsequently joined the band for their Murray Street album. The title is Esperanto and translates as An Invitation to Heaven.

Jim O'Rourke
Halfway to a Threeway

A classic EP from Jim O’Rourke’s sweetly melodic late 90s period. Halfway to a Threeway combines arrangements that you could hear on the radio with darkly comic lyrics. O’Rourke is sometimes critiqued as a pastiche-merchant, but you can’t listen to this without realising that he means it: there is just too much love in the construction of these four tracks.
