Tim Hecker is following up 2018's Konoyo with a companion album, Anoyo on May 10. He did something similar in 2011 with Ravedeath, 1972 and Dropped Pianos, and like that pairing, Anoyo comes from the same recording sessions as its companion and serves as a more stripped back, less processed look at Hecker's music, with the gagaku instruments more front and center and the electronics/production as background.

The opening track, "That World," can currently be listened to on Bandcamp:

Tedeschi Trucks Band new one Signs came out today. A lot more contemplative that any of their predecessors. Songs are a little shorter and more concise than in the past. It is truly beautiful and Susan Tedeschi's voice manages to steal the spotlight on every song. Highly recommended.

This post is a thematic one, because it's all about old music being celebrated anew.

I'll start with the newest Constellation announcement of Trinity Thirty a collaborative album by a pair of Berlin-based, Canadian expat electronic musicians/producers, Deadbeat and Camara (April 26). The album is a reinterpretation/cover of The Trinity Session by The Cowboy Junkies on the occasion of it's 30th anniversary, which was itself partly a covers album, including some traditional and county & western standards alongside the original songs. The new version of the album was intended to be a slowed down adaptation of the Junkies' already tripped-out style through an electronically processed lens, but the duo was captivated by their original takes and ended up leaving it much as it was recorded, very much akin to slowcore/shoegaze. Constellation has put out two album cuts for preview, "Mining for Gold," and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry":



Speaking of slowcore, I had seen the name of Duster thrown about here and there on the internet, often in tangent to other stuff that I like such as early post-rock, but had never checked them out until a track came up recently on a Spotify-generated playlist. I was intrigued and did a bit of investigating, discovering that they were a short-lived, almost lost to time artifact of the late '90s/early '00s, and as luck would have it, they were about to get the reissue treatment by The Numero Group. Capsule Losing Contact (March 15) is a slightly remastered boxset that collects both of Duster's full-lengths, their more fully developed EPs and stand alone 7" singles, and a handful of b-sides and tracks recorded for compilations, though it unfortunately does not include the even rarer two albums done by their alter-ego, Valium Aggelein.

Here's one of those b-sides, "What You're Doing to Me": https://open.spotify.com/album/6J3exFWzizZxq2MEe7jK7w

Another reissue boxset that came put recently is Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990, basically what it says in the title, a collection of compositions by various Japanese composers inspired by the Western developments in ambient music, and the '80s bubble economy that allowed companies to commission exclusive pieces for background music in stores, consumer electronics, and advertisements.

Each edition of the collection has a different number of tracks due to licensing issues and space constraints; the 3 LP set has all 25 pieces, the 2 CD version has 23, and the digital edition has only 10. Here's the Bandcamp link of those 10:

New Earth album, Full Upon Her Burning Lips is out May 24 on Sargent House. First single is "Cats on the Briar," and since it's Earth, you'll pretty much know what to expect by now if you've heard any of their music released in the last 15 years.

Anyone enjoy The Claypool Lennon Delerium’s née album? It’s like psychedelic Beatles and Les Claypool smoked illegal substances with Pink Floyd and hit record. Yet, on second listen quite enjoyable.

Here's a couple new things that came out recently:

Marla Hlady and Eric Chenaux have worked together for years on various sound art installations, and Marla has also recently contributed to some of Eric's recorded releases. The duo have released their first collaborative full-length, called Fluff through the Avatar art and performance gallery in Quebec. The whole thing can be listened to on Soundcloud:





Marc Codsi is a Lebanese musician who first came to some prominence with the band Scrambled Eggs who recorded a few albums and film scores before changing his focus towards more electronic music with the duo Lumi and his own solo works. He has a new solo album out on Annihaya Records, called A New World.

And here's another thing, the next announced release from Constellation. After releasing his second solo album last year, Efrim Menuck took the material on tour, recruiting electronic/ambient/drone musician Kevin Doria (member of Growing and Hiss Tracts and aka Total Life and KGD) to help recreate the album's sound. The duo found their collaboration fertile for new music and quickly developed a number of new songs together, several of which have been collected for a new release on May 10, under both men's names, but being titled after their new project moniker. Thus that's Efrim Manuel Menuck & Kevin Doria - are SING SINCK, SING, with Sing, Sinck Sing being the name they will release future work under. Here's the closing track from the album, "We Will":
