- Sorry About Your (Remixes) by BLK w/BEAR
1 review. Write a review for us »
The premise of this project is that Washington DC (not Tyne and Wear, sadly) sound artist BLK Bear re-works Yonokiero's Blue Apples album over the course of four tracks in a CD so sealed that for me to open it would require me to destroy it. Therefore I'm reviewing it off the Internet. The first ditty 'Casey Jr' features manipulated clarinets intertwining beneath breathy vocals while the impressive 'Sumimasen' recalls Grouper or Fieldhead's 'Riser' 10" in its use of distant, dusty cut up vocals. 'BLK Apples' contains scary, beautiful cello and viola drones whilst 'Blue Apples' takes a different tack altogether built around some kind of stringed instrument (dulcimer, zither?) distorted to within and inch of its life and odd slo-mo vocals. It both beggars belief and restores your faith in radio playlisting that this has been receiving airplay on Gideon Coe's 6 Music show. Just don't play it late at night in a draughty empty house, you may terrify yourself to death but its expertly done ambient bliss with moments of unrestrained beauty.
