STR4TA / Aspects

15:00–16:00 Srijeda 31.3.2021.

A project that grew out of a jam session, STR4TA captures the raw energy of the Brit-Funk scene of the early 80s over eight tracks.

Gilles Peterson has partnered with Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick to reinvigorate the loose, protean energy of the early-80s Brit-funk scene. Long-time friends and collaborators, STR4TA sees them mine new musical possibilities out of that shared formative era. It was through Maunick’s band, Incognito – one of the essential groups of an oft-overlooked, vital pocket of Black British musical history – that they first connected. On “Aspects”, he and Peterson revisit that important period and the spirit that guided it: self-taught, DIY vitality, and a raucous energy built on live performance.

Bringing a fresh slant to a sound first developed by groups like Atmosfear, Hi-Tension, Light of the World and Freeez – with Maunick, it should be noted, also a member of the latter two bands – it’s the first material that Maunick and Peterson have released together in over a decade. First appearing in October 2020 with single ‘Aspects’, the pair didn’t make public that they were behind the project; the limited edition 12” quickly sold out nonetheless, and the track received radio play from Moses Boyd (BBC Radio 6 Music), on KEXP and KCRW, and from Francois K (Worldwide FM), Trevor Jackson (NTS) and Colin Curtis (Worldwide FM).

Peterson and Maunick wanted to approach music-making from the starting point that led to those early records. This meant returning to the era where each of them first found their feet, a period which would shape their respective careers in the decades since. For Peterson, this has been as a tastemaking record label boss, DJ, collector and broadcaster; for Maunick, this has been as a musician, bandleader and composer, touring and making the fabled achievement of scoring chart and radio hits in the USA.

Temples – Sun Structures

13/01/2014.

Temples su osnovani 2012. u Ketteringu, Northamptonshire, a svojim su zanimljivim hibridom aktualnog nezavisnog zvuka i retro trenda vrlo brzo osvojili ne samo publiku, već i poslovično krute kritičare, pa i neke starije kolege poput Johnnyja Marra i Noela Gallaghera. Rekli bi, sasvim dovoljno za uvrštavanje na listu aluma tjedna!

TIM BOWNESS / Stupid Things That Mean The World (2015.)

04/08/2015.

Ovaj je album, kao i ostatak Bownessovog samostalnog stvaralaštva teško klasificirati, a lako je moguće da vam prilikom preslušavanja na pamet padnu imena poput Roberta Wyatta, Davida Sylviana, Scotta Walkera pa i Bryana Ferryja iz poznih osamdesetih. Djelimičan razlog tomu su i gostujući glazbenici koji su dali svoj obol ovom djelu, a na toj se listi pored nezaobilaznog Wilsona nalaze i Phil Manzanera, Peter Hammil, Andrew Keeling, Pat Mastelotto i drugi. U svakom slučaju, ovaj mali izlet u one mirnije vode suvremenog art rocka idealan je izbor za lijena i vruća ljetnja popodneva. Štoviše, virtualno glazbeno putovanje u neistražene, hladnije krajeve britanske rock avangarde!
