The Rita - Gamzatti
*note: I fixed a typo and somehow this got moved to the front page. don't ask me why. otherwise it's the same as the original from a few months ago...
as total black's first vinyl release, I couldn't think of anyone or anything more fitting than a new release from the rita.
featuring source recordings taken from ballet dancers' shoes, sam mckinlay has created his most cohesive, hypnotic work yet, and I just love it.
there are so many great textures here, it's great to see his work continue to evolve. mckinlay could've easily grown complacent and chosen to churn out generic wall after generic wall, but he doesn't. there's real care and craftsmanship put into this record and it shows.
the same goes for brett over at total black - he put so much thought and detail into making this record a reality, above and beyond the call of duty. great design and great supplemental materials - posters, full-color booklets, everything here coalesces into the perfect example of why he runs the best noise label around.
I don't know how, but copies are still available directly from the source.
buy one right now.
(buy a copy from total black.)
