Ernest Hood

Created using fields recordings, strange stringed instruments, and treated samples, Earnest Hood's 'Neighbourhoods' is imbibed with a profound sense of nostalgia. You can just hear the faint hum of a radio and the chirp of crickets, the album sounds like a summer's day. Although much of the sounds are familiar, Hoods synthesises a series of alien soundscapes that sounds like great sonic glaciers glancing off one another. Not only that but it was made in 1975! It still sounds wholly fresh and modern. FFO Mort Garson, Ellen Arkbro, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. 

On Dry Land

Freedom To Spend’s run of Rimarimba reissues continues with the band’s 1984 LP On Dry Land. With this record Robert Cox further explores the curious fourth-world sound that he’d begun to develop on Beyond The Horizon the previous year. As such, On Dry Land is pitched somewhere between the sampling experiments of Eno, Byrne and Cale, Midori Takada’s new age minimalism and 23 Skidoo’s avant-rock.

In The Woods

Somewhere in the early ‘80s,  in an inexplicable space between post-punk, minimalist and industrial music Rimarimba existed with their weird sounds. The DIY electronic experimentalists were led by Felixstowe-based Robert Cox. In The Woods was their second album and was originally released in 1985.

June Chikuma
Les Archives

‘Les Archives’ by June Chikuma is pure barmy joy. It’s a sound of stop-start mischief, layer upon layer of repetitious melody that can shift at any minute into some new configuration. Its experimentation that needs no academic essay accompaniment, just an ear open for the unconventional. This is an extraordinary record that has this almost grand sense of composition, while using a twisted video game set of tones.   

Below The Horizon

Rare DIY sounds from Robert Cox’s Rimarimba project, excavated and reissued by Freedom To Spend. Below The Horizon is 1983 material, originally circulated through private tape-trading circles. Homemade minimalism, made with an amateur’s passion and all the more intriguing and enjoyable for it. Limited LP reissue.
