Following on from releases of music by Visible Cloaks and Pedro, Portland’s record shop-turned-label Musique Plastique have decided to give reissues a go. John Gilbert Colman composed Daedalus in the mid-80s to accompany an avant-theatrical piece. It is, of course, quite strange. Sometimes it sounds almost like chamber music, sometimes like the intro to a children’s TV show, and sometimes it’s little more than someone cooing and plucking a banjo. Always keeps you guessing, does old Daedalus.

Visible Cloaks
Visible Cloaks

Musique Plastique’s souped-up reissue of Visible Cloaks’s self-titled 2014 cassette is out for another release run. The duo’s synthesis of synthetic FM tones, manipulated voices and mallet percussion recalls the releases of the short-lived but influential label Hippos In Tanks (Hype Williams, James Ferraro) as well as having something of the Kid As about it. This re-pressing sees the original tape remastered and bundled together with ‘additional surprises’. Goodee.

Pedro (Peter Mekwunye)
One Kind of Love

Peter Mekwunye moved from Nigeria to the US and set about making his first and only record at home. Calling himself Pedro he self released One Kind Of Love on cassette, taking it round to record shops himself. The record itself sounds like a Dean Blunt creation with Nigerian influences and tales of hope and spirituality. Available on vinyl for the first time.
