    From Cuneiform Records: Two New Releases by Thumbscrew 

    From Cuneiform Records

    Here’s something that I genuinely thought I would never say again: Below are two new Cuneiform releases.

    These two releases represent my trying find a balance between the ability to keep doing something I think I am very good at (curating a world-class record label of indefinable, cutting edge music and paying musicians what they are owed) with something that is no longer possible in today’s music business environment: not losing gobs of cash while doing so.

    But my wonderful staff is now my former wonderful staff, and my expenses are reduced; it’s just me doing it all now. So while Cuneiform can no longer do what we used to do, I am hoping to find a workable balance between the extremes and still do something to help bring great music into the world.
    Without going broke.

    We’ll see.

    That’s why I am sticking two toes (or thumbs, if you prefer) back in the water. Regardless of how it goes, I want to publicly acknowledge my deep gratitude towards the many of the folks who we worked with over the decades, who called up or wrote to offer words of wholehearted appreciation and / or encouragement when I really needed it. And very specifically to thank Michael, Tomas and Mary who went very much out of their way to lure me back in and make me feel that Cuneiform could still be useful and that I could still be useful too.

    These releases are not going to be generally released for another few weeks, but you can buy them directly from us right now! Our releases are available from us to our direct mail customers several weeks before they are generally released or available from other sources.

    We spend a small fortune on our releases and your direct purchase of the physical CDs from us via Wayside Music [see just below] or digitally from us via our bandcamp page helps us tremendously and is extremely important to our being able to continue our work. Please don’t steal them or make it possible for others to steal them. If you want this music, pay for it. Simple as that.

    Thank you for your interest and thank you for sending nice notes to me when we all thought Cuneiform was 100% completely over and done; if you really meant it, please show it by buying these or buying something else we’ve released.

    Thumbscrew demonstrates their unique collective musical vision in contrasting but complementary ways on two exciting new CDs. Ours and Theirs are the first to be released on a newly revamped Cuneiform Records, just returning from a hiatus. Comprised of longtime collaborators Michael Formanek, Tomas Fujiwara, and Mary Halvorson, Thumbscrew is a true collaborative effort with all three members contributing at an equal rate both in terms of composition and improvisation.

    Born out of a residency at Pittsburgh’s City of Asylum where Thumbscrew created their striking second album Convallaria, Ours and Theirs showcase Thumbscrew in two different contexts performing all originals on Ours and all covers on Theirs. Both albums present a meticulous and intuitive original sound that could only be crafted during focused and intensive time as a collective in a place like City of Asylum. “When we arrived at City of Asylum for our second residency in June 2017, we immediately said, ’we’re home!’” says Fujiwara, “The feelings we get when being at City of Asylum, around the people that make it such a unique place doing great work…All of this contributes to a creative process that’s open and inclusive and experimental.”

    Tomas, Michael, and Mary are no strangers to each other’s work, having performed in a multitude of projects together, including Michael Formanek’s Ensemble Kolossus, Tomas Fujiwara and the Hook Up’s After All is Said, and most recently, in Mary Halvorson’s critically-acclaimed Code Girl.

    Ours, as its namesake suggests, is an album of original compositions with Fujiwara, Formanek and Halvorson contributing three works apiece. Opening with Halvorson’s striking Snarling Joys, Ours begins with delicate (and ever so slightly warped) ensemble figures that very naturally develop into an urgent and tense thrill-ride of a track, with a brilliant bass solo from Formanek. Fujiwara’s Saturn Way shows the ensemble bouncing off of each other’s rhythmic framework with Fujiwara anchoring the group through a pummeling rolling tom figure that slowly descends into a spacious and attentive group improvisation. Later, on Formanek’s punk-thru-the-wormhole style “Cruel Heartless Bastards” the ensemble shifts metric pulse in total lockstep on the turn of a dime while a teasing 4/4 figure creates a sense of gravity for the entire composition. Halvorson takes the track to the stratosphere with a dizzying guitar pedal laden solo after the group snakes their way through Formanek’s labyrinth.

    On the contrast between the two records, Halvorson says, “The approach to presenting a unique and personal take on a composition is the same whether it’s one of Ours or one of Theirs.”

    Thumbscrew: Michael Formanek / Tomas Fujiwara / Michael Formanek-Theirs $15.00

    Theirs features covers penned by venerable composers, from North American jazz legends Benny Golson and Wayne Shorter, to South American composers Julio De Caro (Argentina) and Jacob Do Bandolim (Brazil), to songwriter Evelyn Danzig and Dutch avant-gardist Misha Mengelberg. Thumbscrew covers considerable ground in bringing their unique arrangements and ensemble sensibility to this transfixing set of other composers’ music. On the selection of covers, Fujiwara says, “Each of us brought in a number of covers–more than double what we ended up releasing–that we were curious for Thumbscrew to try. We played through each composition many times, trying different arrangements, and slowly started to focus in on which ones felt right for the group.” Formanek states that “for me it was mostly a matter of which tunes I thought would have strong enough bones to sustain a Thumbscrew interpretation. It was also a matter of imagining how certain pieces would work with Mary, Tomas, and my approaches that wouldn’t sound like just another version.”
    On the contrast between the two records, Halvorson says, “The difference is that with the covers we’re aware of trying to honor the composer’s vision, and in many cases, classic versions of the song which serve as inspirations.”

    THIS WEEK’S ALBUM
    Waxed Oop by
    Fast ‘N’ Bulbous

    Captain Beefheart’s music is the quintessential ‘outsider art music’ of the second half of the 20th century. Despite the fact that he retired from music over 35 years ago, his music resonates more strongly than ever as an influence on contemporary music.

    Fast ‘n’ Bulbous offer a unique slant on the songbook of one of contemporary music’s most idiosyncratic musical figures.

    The band features seven great, well-regarded musicians drawn from the rock and the jazz worlds: co-leaders guitarist Gary Lucas (who was in the final incarnation of Beefheart’s Magic Band) and saxist/arranger Phillip Johnston (of the Microscopic Septet) as well as drummer Richard Dworkin, and baritone saxist Dave Sewelson (both also of the Micros), trombonist Joe Fieldler (Ed Palermo Big Band and Satoko Fujii’s big band), bassist Jesse Krakow (of Time of Orchids and Doctor Nerve) and trumpeter Rob Heinke (also of Doctor Nerve).

    With a strong, creative line-up like this, you know that you will be getting something more than just a ‘cover band’ and you indeed are. Heartfelt, exciting and it both rocks and swings!

    Hello!
    As you know this weekly email is our way of offering Cuneiform fans (you) a way to personally own and easily discover great titles from our back catalog for an amazing price!

    This weekend’s Five Dollar album is Eriea by Doctor Nerve.

    Doctor Nerve is a rock band that has been annihilating the boundaries between rock, metal, improvisation, jazz, and experimental music since 1983. Eriea, recorded with The Sirius String Quartet was the group’s fifth studio album.

    A large work in three movements that spans intimate composition for solo viola, tightly reigned composition for full ensemble, explosive conducted improvisation of orchestral scope, and incendiary solos over rock grooves. It includes a no-holds-barred live performance of the second movement, recorded at Ereia’s premiere at the FIMAV ’97 Festival.

    “Four years of hard labor & 14 musicians with a commitment to total annihilation; painstaking compositions & apocalyptic deconstructions burned into a single laser-guided CD projectile.”
    -Nick Didkovsky

    “Using deconstructed phrasing, computer-generated scores, and intuitive improvisation techniques, the Nerve is one of the most fluent ensembles currently nestled in the Big Apple.
    Ereia is a long form, commissioned work featuring the Sirius String Quartet (joining Doctor Nerve). Divided into three distinct movements (including an incendiary, 20 minute in-concert portion), [leader, guitarist Nick Didkovsky] mixes searing Stravinsky-like chording with inexplicable avant-rock moves.
    With its abundance of classical discipline (though hardly letting the ink dry on the scores), cyber treatments and free skronk execution, Ereia is the first major work of 2K, poised to be measured against by composers and musicians of the future. Exceptional.”

    Tags: Cuneiform, Radio Massacre International, Rain Falls In Grey, Syd Barrett   

    From Cuneiform Records: “THIS WEEK’S ALBUM – Rain Fall In Grey by Radio Massacre International” 

    Cuneiform Records

    Hello!

    Exactly 50 years ago today, on April 6, 1968, it was announced that Syd Barrett was no longer a member of Pink Floyd!

    As you know this weekly email is our way of offering Cuneiform fans (you) a way to personally own and easily discover great titles from our back catalog for an amazing price!

    This weekend’s Five Dollar album is Rain Falls In Grey by Radio Massacre International.

    Radio Massacre International’s second Cuneiform release (and the band’s 27th overall), Rain Falls in Grey, is something quite different from the band’s previous work.
    Best known for electronic space music for keyboards, electronics and guitars, here R.M.I. have expanded greatly upon their usual sound and also use conventional rock instrumentation to create a sincere and moving tribute to Syd Barrett, and in doing so, manage to capture some of the psychedelic magic of 1967-1968.
    This album features a really striking cover by Daevid Allen, which is also a homage to Syd, who was a huge influence on Daevid as well.

    “This album is our way of saying goodbye and thanks to a genuine one-off. His passing had an unexpectedly profound effect, despite the fact that he hadn’t been near a guitar in more than 30 years. It forced us to consider what an enormous influence he was, despite his space-age ascendancy and equally rapid burnout. He picked up a zippo lighter, invented glissando guitar and incorporated non-musical sounds into the context of the new psychedelic movement that had hardly had time to leave the conformity of Rhythm & Blues behind. His creation was a particularly English take on what we now call ‘rock’…and for those of us engaged in experimental or space rock, the debt is enormous.” – radio massacre international

    Rain Falls in Grey is Radio Massacre International’s second album for Cuneiform Records, after who knows how many albums in their career overall. More important, though, this is one of their most accessible releases, both in terms of style and availability. It remains true to RMI’s sound, but it has a distinctly more potent rock flavor — psychedelic rock, in fact. A tribute to Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett, who died days before the first recording sessions, Rain Falls in Grey succeeds in capturing Barrett’s sound world — or at least the elements that have had an influence on RMI’s music. The album opens with the glorious 17-minute title track, a highly inspired psychedelic rock improvisation featuring uplifting glissando guitar and the saxophones of guest Martin Archer. (Wasn’t it Barrett’s wish to add a horn section to Pink Floyd before he was retired from the band?) Syd and the closing …Far Away are also hosts for the spirit of early Pink Floyd. Keyboards and synthesizers are relegated to the back row through most of the album — a departure from Emissaries, the group’s previous opus for Cuneiform — to make way for Gary Houghton’s dreamy guitar lines. Archer’s presence (on saxes, clarinets, and flutes) helps build a special aura around Rain Falls in Grey. An experimental improviser and electro-acoustic composer, Archer has been on a comeback toward more accessible music (the jazz project Hornweb, the folk group Army of Briars), and here he carves himself a nice nest within RMI’s core trio, convincingly enough to raise hope for further collaborations. Rain Falls in Grey goes beyond the tribute album to become one of the group’s best-paced and most welcoming albums yet. Also worthy of note is the colorful cover artwork signed by Gong’s Daevid Allen.” – All Music Guide

    Tags: Alec K. Redfearn, Bandcamp, Cuneiform,   

    From Cuneiform Records: “Hello friends / fans of Cuneiform Records” More Available at Bandcamp” 

    Cuneiform Records

    It’s nice to see you all here! It’s nice for us to be here once more! As we try to figure out way(s) forward for Cuneiform, it occurred to us that many of the folks who like what we do like to buy our releases from Bandcamp. Since we also like Bandcamp very much, can we do more with Bandcamp? Yes we can! We are happy to announce that five of Alec K. Redfearn’s earlier albums are now available from Cuneiform Records via Bandcamp. They street next Friday, April 13, but you can pre-order them now [sorry, no links provided]. When they ‘go live’, you’ll be able to hear the whole things, but for now you can hear a couple of tracks from each. They will also be available from iTunes and other digital sales platforms, but the highest quality versions (and the versions that produce the most money for the artist and for us without costing the consumer any more) are the Bandcamp versions. “So, whaddya got?”

    1
    ALEC K. REDFEARN and THE SEIZURESExterminating Angel
    The Seizures are the ‘power trio’ offshoot of The Eyesores, featuring
    Alec K. Redfearn : vocals, accordion, ukulele
    Chris Sadlers : string bass, loops
    Matt McLaren : drums, glockenspiel and percussion
    Orion Rigel Dommisse : backing vocals
    This 2009 release is a great one.

    2
    ALEC K. REDFEARN and THE EYESORESThe Smother Party
    This 2006 release came is a killer, with great songs and performances.
    It is almost like two EPs put together, with the first part being the 25′ of the full Eyesore experience and the 2nd 25′ being by the accordion / drum duo of Matt and Alec, Gutterhelmet.

    3
    ALEC K. REDFEARN and THE EYESORESEvery Man For Himself And God Against All
    This 2003 album may feature the largest lineup of Eyesores (I’m too lazy to actually count, but there’s a ton of folks here). This was their 3rd release and this and Bent At The Waist are the albums where I think Alec really found his sound .

    4
    ALEC K. REDFEARN and THE EYESORESBent At The Waist
    This 2002 album came out shortly before Every Man For Himself, and presents what we love about the Eyesores in a embryonic form.

    5
    (ALEC K. REDFEARN and ) THE EYESORESMay You Dine On Weeds Made Bitter By The Piss Of Drunkards
    This was the first Eyesores release and was released under the name The Eyesores, as the lawyer letter from the California punk rock band insisting that they ‘change their name’ hadn’t arrived yet…

    So, thanks for reading this while the Cuneiform brain-trust thinks about things and sticks its smallest toe in the waters again….
