From Burning Shed: Just bagged one of the 200 limited pressings for a tad over £14 incl postage.


Nosound
The Northern Religion Of Things (cd)

A new album of radical re-interpretations of Nosound tracks from the band's leader/founder, Giancarlo Erra.

The Northern Religion Of Things was recorded during the rehearsal process for a unique one-off 'Nosound solo' gig that Giancarlo performed in London in August 2010.

For this intimate gig, Giancarlo created new arrangements for several classic Nosound tracks using a live setup that enabled him to play keyboards and/or acoustic guitar while also singing and recreating sounds and effects from the original studio albums. No backing tracks were used, only triggered loops and played instruments.

The album is available as a standard jewel case in slip case (with booklet and liner notes) and as a very limited edition strictly limited to 200 copies, that includes:

1) The original CD (in jewel case with slipcase, plus 12 page photographic booklet and extended liner notes)

2) A6 (105mm × 148mm) high quality signed sticker featuring the album cover.

3) Four square badges (40mm x 40mm) featuring the album covers of the 4 Nosound studio albums.

Pre-order for 17th July release.

Thanks for this, Marygold.

A website is here (with samples):

(I must admit I always confuse Circa with The Syn, but that's just because of the Yes factor. Oh, and my being a little dimwitted...)

Elements? Only one track, I'm afraid - Path to My Heart (if I recall correctly; it was the MySpace one). Reminded me more of Toto than Yes. I wasn't wildy excited, to be frank, and don't have the album.

(EDIT: For those who are in the dark here, YOSO is, or was, a band comprised of Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood (both from Yes) and Bobby Kimball (from Toto). The name seems to be a combination of "Yes" and "Toto". They released one album, called Elements, in 2010, and appear to have disbanded soon after.)

Ned, I haven't heard anything from this album yet. Is it better than Ancestors, or just similar?

I've heard the new album in its entirety. Sounds much better than their debut effert. A natural step forward...

Steve Wilson (of Porcupine Tree fame) will rlease his second solo album on September 26th.

It's called Grace for Drowning, and will be a double album (err, double CD).

Here's the relevant part of an e-mail I got from Burning Shed:

"Grace For Drowning is Steven Wilson's second album and develops further the uncompromising creativity evident on his highly regarded debut, Insurgentes.

A double album ("Two 40-45 minute albums in the same package."), Wilson describes the release as, "My biggest project to date."

Wilson adds, “Insurgentes was an important step for me into something new. This record takes that as a starting point, but it’s more experimental and more eclectic. For me, the golden period for music was the late sixties and early seventies, when the album became the primary means of artistic expression, when musicians liberated themselves from the 3 minute pop song format, and started to draw on jazz and classical music especially, combining it with the spirit of psychedelia to create “journeys in sound.” So, without being retro, my album is a kind of homage to that spirit. There’s everything from [Ennio] Morricone-esque film themes to choral music to piano ballads to a 23 minute progressive jazz–inspired piece.”

Burning Shed is selling Grace For Drowning in three limited edition formats, a deluxe version, and as a 2cd digipack, and a heavyweight double vinyl issue.

The Deluxe version features 3 CDs (including a bonus CD of out-takes and demos) and a Blu-Ray disc, and is packaged in a hard back book, which features 120 pages of artwork and notes."


Unfortunately, that "deluxe" edition will set you back GBP 49,95! The regular edition, though, is a more reasonable GBP 11,99.

You can pre-order here:

Awesome! I love their other albums. Thanks Marygold! If any of you reading this have not heard Proto-Kaw, and you like the band Kansas, you're in for quite a treat. They're like Kansas on steroids.

Meanwhile, King Crimson's Starless and Bible Black and Discipline (the 40th anniversary editions, although that anniversary has come and gone now) will be released on October 3rd, according to an e-mail I received from Burning Shed.

These include the Steve Wilson 5.1 mixes.

I must admit I've lost track, a bit. The one album I'm really looking forward to, though, is Larks' Tongues in Aspic (ooh, in 5.1...!)

The new The Tangent album will be called COMM.

The website is here:

http://www.thetangent.org/

Whilst I really liked the first albums, the later ones didn't appeal to me as much. The few snippets that can be heard from the new one, though, seem promising.
