Vendredi 26 Juin : MICHAEL MORLEY
@ la société de curiosités, Paris, 20h30
Contact lasocietedecuriosites@gmail.com for details of venue, etc

GATE est le projet sonore (guitare + laptop) du plasticien neo-zelandais Michael Morley, membre du groupe seminal The Dead C et collaborateur de Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), de James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians, The Stumps, With Throats as Fine as Needles) ou encore de Zeena Parkins. Il a monte son propre label confidentiel Precious Metal dans les annees 1990 et a sorti une multitude de disques sur divers labels (Guitar, Amerika et Metric sur Majora, The Dew Line et The Monolake sur Table of Elements). Sa musique oscille entre drone-rock rugueux et environnement sonore electro-acoustique. Riffs de guitare electrique etales en feedback lancinant, brouillard de fuzz et drones granuleux qui enveloppent une voix mi parlee-mi chantee. Michael Morley est egalement enseignant a l’ecole d’art Otago Polytechnic de Dunedin.

Forthcoming on August 3rd:

Gate "Republic Of Sadness" lp (Ba Da Bing)
The first new Gate record in over a decade, A Republic of Sadness is as much a reason for celebration as indoctrination into the creative genius of Michael Morley. Known primarily for his work in The Dead C, Morley simultaneously has been doing Gate since he's started playing.
A Republic of Sadness comprises the apex of Morley's various interests in one collection. His guitar and vocal drones permeate through looped beats and sounds, arriving at a sound that is not quite dance, not quite noise, not quite electronica and never, ever ambient.

Going by the sound samples it's going to be brilliant!

then they even have discounts with 1.50 euros or 15% off of everything (usually on mondays, it's good to keep a wishlist and buy stuff when it's cheapest) and every 10th item sent within 60 days of the first gives you a free voucher worth the average amount you've spent over those 10 items. plus they don't add shipping costs to the listed prices. i can't stop buying from those bastards, on average it's more than 10 items a month lately. :o

no, i do not work for them!

SpectralJulianIsNotDead 07.13.2010 01:38 AM

Norman Records review:

This guy (Michael Morley) with the shit moniker (see also: Bench, Table or Fence) i've just discovered is a member of scrappy NZ racketeers The Dead C. So downtempo electronica was not what I was expecting therefore. The opener starts off like the ambient intro to West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys and loops beautifully for a few minutes, underlaid with static & crackle and some muffled implicit vocal stylings which both add to & detract from to the lulling atmosphere of the tune. His style of electronica is quite understated, primitive and organic, his vocals on 'All' sounding like the ethereal ramblings of a stoned man in a weird trance whilst the music is built on a lo-fi metronomic beat & a rattly hi-hat sample - the amorphous keyboards summoning up thoughts of Global Communication. Odd stuff indeed! Just when you reckon you've got him figured he funks everything up with this weird chillwave disco experiment, his ever demented vocal stylings becoming a slurry elongated monologue draped carelessly (and amusingly) all over the tune. Fucking bizarre record indeed, side two I'm not commenting on because I need my DINNER! Rah!


Also available for 2,400 Nectar points!

Best album of the year so far, and unlikely to be bettered.
