In April we suggested you get thee to the church on May 19, where Tim Hecker, Wounded Knee and Matthew Collings were performing live. If you did not heed, you have a second chance to hear. Recorded by Clive Mitchell and mixed by the artist, Collings’ set comprised the following tracks:
“Everything you love will end up on the breeze” (8:43)
Elysia (parts 3 and 4) (18:38)
Writing for The List, Niel Cooper reports, “Collings’ hit the ground running approach lends weight, purpose and propulsion to his still controlled display of mood-led widescreen sound-shards…. At times the electronic stabs gallop along like a po-mo spaghetti western, at others, synthesised zithers and horns come on like a deconstructed noir as played by Godspeed You! Black Emperor.”
We’ll catch you next time around, Matthew. (Especially if it’s in Dallas.) Great stuff.
