Review by Julian Cope (Head Heritage)
Those of you requiring buzzed-up blissdrones should get a hold of the magnificent clear vinyl 12" gatefold version of Magneticring's self-titled debut LP. For as well as being a fucking epic recording, the packaging and the high quality of the printing conspire to make MAGNETICRING something of a must-have. All the work of Vancouver's Joshua Stevenson, these oft-static, over-driven & always transfixing pieces operate upon a similar vibrational territory as Mikhail Chekalin's ELECTRONIC MUSIC FOR DECOMPOSED ORGAN, CLUSTER 2 and Klaus Schultze's IRRLICHT, though nothing in Stevenson's music appears contrived or backwards-looking. But if you dig music like escaping gas, and you fancy giving your money to an artist who's given a great deal of thought to the manner in which his work is represented, then do please search out this luxuriously-packaged art house monster from Uzu Audio Records (www.uzuaudio.com
), and make it soon because they'll go.
