So. How exactly have we blindspotted this one since last May?
Talvihorros is London-based guitarphile Ben Chatwin, and Muse regulars need no further introduction to Matthew Collings. Both have alot going on this year: Chatwin, a split album with Damian Valles, and Collings, a soundtrack, and a likely album (or two). Stay tuned for all that.
But for now we leave you with the one-year-old A Thousand Plateaus, recorded for their tour last year. Less a synthesis of divergent styles and more a mutual departure, this 20-minute EP features the rattle of machinery we hear in some of Collings’ more experimental work, and the guitar abstraction for which Chatwin is known. But “Four Tracks” is downright post-rock in temperament, and “Ten Drops” is very nearly cinematic.
A Thousand Plateaus likely takes its name from the second part of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s call for micropolitics Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Originally issued by Hibernate Recordings and long since sold out, the album is available at the Bandcamp page for digital purchase. Stream right here:
