After being one half of electronic music project Mountains with Koen Holtkamp, composer Brendon Anderegg began his solo career in the late ‘90s. His return to recording begins with June, a calming work reminiscent of Bernard Parmegiani, Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh. Vinyl only on Thrill Jockey.

Yes! Here’s an experimental record of synth explorations from those fine fellows and lasses at Thrill Jockey and a quick glance (on-line, natch) confirms this to be the work of Chicagoan (no surprises, no prizes) Brendon Anderegg. Brendon’s surname is not the only interesting factor to be revealed by this long-player though -- oh no, not by a long chalk. It’s a 12” piece of vinyl tortuously, mesmerizingly unravelling the mysteries, tonalities and wavering frequencies of its synth-y contents as it slowly, inexorably revolves at 33rpm on the office review-station turntable.
June is one continuous piece of music which sinuously unwinds and snakes its way through its 10 blippy, bloopy and pulsing segments. As such, and so is the gentle flow of the resonating magic on this record, it perhaps is ideally set up as something one might meditate to, should one be so inclined. The frequencies rarely stray from the key of ‘Om’ but you’ll need to get up to turn the record over. Two meditations of 18-19 minutes length apiece, which suits my concentration span fine. Excuse me, I need more coffee.
