Timo van Luijk – Mark Harwood: Vang Circular – LP
Penultimate Press, PP 033, december 2017.
Vang Circular is the first outing from Timo van Luijk (La Scie Dorée / Af Ursin, Elodie) and Mark Harwood (Penultimate Press / Astor). Employing vibes, mellotron, natural reader, an iron ant, synth, metal pipes, slide guitar and a double bass these audacious souls conjure a wonky musical vision that gently peels away the familiar. The results are a surprising synthesis of the two individuals somewhat oppositional agendas. From the farthest reaches of the galaxy to the highest celestial plane the core of this haunted and bewitching release exists as a spectre at the edge of time.
Recorded over a weekend at Kulta Saha studio, Belgium in the summer of 2017 Vang Circular lands in a reverse board sleeve in an edition of 273 copies.
