The Seattle label continues its vinyl series with two new live albums.
Seattle's Further Records will release two new albums today, both of which are live recordings.
The first comes from Conrad Schnitzler, an early innovator of electronic music and former member of the seminal Krautrock outfits Cluster and Tangerine Dream. Simply titled Live '72, the album documents a concert Schnitzler played nearly 40 years ago. It's his second release for Further so far: one of the label's early cassettes was a recording of a Schnitzler concert from the mid '80s. That one was a reissue of a rare cassette; Live '72 is previously unreleased. All of the tracks are untitled, and range in length from under three minutes to over 16.
The other album captures the first ever concert by the English artist Ekoplekz. Recorded last year at Bristol's Dubloaded, this one is an exercise in dubby, spaced out synths with no drums. It will be his sixth album in two years; when he's not making 12-inches for Punch Drunk or Mordant Music, Ekoplekz pumps out CD-Rs and cassettes at a prolific rate.
Both albums were mastered at Dubplates & Mastering and come pressed on white vinyl. You can hear them in their entirety now on Further's website.
