Meursault - Sleeping Debris

Ok, it feels like it has been ages now and I'm again rushing this one a bit. I wanted to get that MV & EE tape ripped but with a crappy cassette player and a laptop battery that dies as soon as you take it off mains power things in that direction have been slow. When it does get set up again (hopefully the next couple of days) I'll get around to ripping a few good tapes. For now though, here is a CD released on Students Of Decay a couple of years back.

Meursault - Sleeping Debris
Meursault - Sleeping Debris


Meursault is the solo moniker of Shaun Falconer, a musician based out of Glasgow. The project first came to my attention by way of three simply gorgeous self-released cdrs birthed last year by Falconer's own Eagle + Serpent Recordings imprint. "Sleeping Debris" follows very much in the trajectory established by those prior releases, but feels perhaps even more focused. Employing bowed guitars and piano, Falconer coaxes frail webs of cascading drones and beautiful swelling timbres into evocative mantras which hang thick in the air like fog. Cathartic and transportive in the best possible way.

Olafur Arnalds recorded and released seven songs in seven days a couple of weeks ago, well worth a listen.

Some shops were stocking the new Root Strata releases last week. I've noticed both Boomkat and Volcanic Tongue have had the new Ilyas Ahmed album available. Got my copy through the other day and would definitely recommend it. Should be released on Root Strata's website on the 1st of May.

The new Twinsistermoon album arrived the other day as well - some info and images have been put onto Discogs but previews are likely to be limited, they are floating around though. I'd definitely keep an eye on UltraHardGel and its distributors.
The 3LP on Blackest Rainbow is still a while off but is apparently going to be limited to around 500. Don't know if that will mean a huge rush but no doubt distros will be stockpiling in case you miss out direct.

Big Blood have announced their next CD release on their Dontrustheruin blog. It will be a 2 CD set out on the 15th May - available from Time Lag, Tomentosa and North East Indie.

Hoards of MV & EE live albums were made more available this week via Volcanic Tongue and Eclipse Records. I may upload one or two of these in the future, even though they're only $7.99 (from Eclipse) keeping up with these guys is quite expensive so if you have a request for a specific album I'll see what I can do when they arrive.

looking forward to the mv & ee post. i'm lookin at one or two to get myself.. also just placed an order for Willie Lane's new LP "Known Quantity" from volcanic tongue, it was sold out at fusetron so i had to go overseas.. but that record should be great, i loved his C.O.M release

don't feel like you have to upload that Sasquatch Creamie cassette.I got the cdr of it along with Space,Pride of Yards & Bill Lee vs Powerman from Eclipse & as usual Ed gets stuff out quick.I think once again i have the entire catalog so far.Eventually i'll put them on my site but i figure i should make sure the band gets theirs first.
Don't forget the Big Blood will be posted on WFMU's new music archive.As a matter of fact all their albums are there for download
I get technical difficulties.My desktop died & i've been working off a 10 inch netbook for a couple weeks.My Imac should get here tomorrow.I've given up on pc's.I lost 2 hard drives.One i can pay $80 for an online program & rescue the data(500gb's of music) but the 300gb one if i want the data i'll have to go the expensive data recovery route.Ouch!!
Love your posts & updates as always

Be sure to say what that Willie Lane LP is like, hadn't spot that but it sounds as though it could be great. Haven't heard any of his solo stuff yet.

There was one CDr Eclipse seemed to be lacking, 'Barn Joint', but hopefully they will get a stock of that in the next update. Managed to snag one from VT so will upload that in the next couple of days.

Can't say I'm fully convinced by WFMU's archive just yet - still a few little teething problems and not the greatest sound (or is that just me?) - but that is a good point if anyone misses out or can't afford it.

500GB hard drive filled with music?! That's a lot of sound! Might be worth getting one of those external hard drives. Unlucky though, that must have been so frustrating. Hope the Mac works out.
