Polmo Polpo Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Sandro Perri's newest record sees the avant-folk musician bringing in new aesthetics previously explored in his electronic project Off World. Utilising gorgeous guitar meanderings alongside creaking, squelching, zapping synths, he offers a twenty-plus minute track made with the aim of sounding "infinite". Verse after verse after verse, it sounds newly pretty; the second side of the record sees Perri improvise lyrics over a serene musical ballad in "Everybody's Paris", which is then reinterpreted by Destroyer's Dan Bejar and the Deadly Snakes' André Ethier. A fascinating u-turn.
Jazz folk song-warper Sandro Perri is no stranger to thee Constellation record releasing orchestra, though with new band Off World he takes a different tack. On 1 this fledgling band of musicians contribute to the label's triple-bill of instrumental Autumn releases, using a mix of electronics and acoustics to create short-form tracks that feel alien and mountainous, establishing patterns and them examining them on an insect level.
