REYNOLS

Gona Rubian Ranesa

(Outlier Communications) LP $29.00

The Argentinean band’s first studio album in seventeen years updates their classic sound to new realms of hypnotic psych-rock immersion. Miguel Tomasín, Anla Courtis, Rob Conlazo and Pacu Conlazo are clearly reinvigorated on this true masterpiece of psychedelic rock. About the four tracks on this “brain-melting monster,” Obladada has this to say: “ ‘Cameso Cator Sitero’ is a … corkscrew ride … stuttering around a motif that eventually blossoms into no less than a chopped and sliced ‘Ode to Joy’…. ‘Lintiri Teperoli’ drifts into view with organ patterns and drumming like a studio sketch from A Saucerful of Secrets, complete with Tomasín’s spiraling space whispers. ‘Acotan Silago Foli’ continues the overall drift as elements slowly gather, elevate and intermingle…. ‘Corlo Saturu’ snaps back into a busier, slobbering, grooving mess [as if a] studio ceremony has just exploded…. Eventually lysergic guitar forms out of the shitstorm, teasing lines and half-obliterated logic. Thirteen minutes of gloriously and furiously thrashing bliss heading absolutely nowhere.” Double-side insert. Alien green vinyl. Edition of 218.

PAULINE OLIVEROS / REYNOLS

Minexcio Connection: Live at the Rosedale Cafe

(Roaratorio) LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The results of one of the most unexpected yet fruitful partnerships in recent years, a live collaboration between electronic music pioneer and sage of the environmental-drone Pauline Oliveros and indefinable Argentinean experimenters Reynols. Recorded in August 2000 during Reynols’ first trek through North America, the record features a version of “Six For New Time” (originally composed for Sonic Youth’s Goodbye 20th Century album), along with idiosyncratic throat-singing and hypnotic dream/dronescapes.

Rampotanza Grodo Rempelente

(Locust) Used CD $8.00

“Sourced heavily in recordings made in a busy Buenos Aires street in 1994,” reports Rovi about the third volume in the Met Life Locations Sound Series, titled after “another one of drummer / guru Miguel Tomasín’s inspired manglings of Spanish, is another fine example of the kind of blurring of the difference between life and art at which the Argentinean avant-gardists are uncannily gifted. The second track, recorded in July 2002, remixes the same street sounds into a mist of grainy drone … before a crazy psychedelic jam session kicks in [where] Tomasín’s utterly original and totally wonky drumming steers the rest of the group into all kinds of odd corners, with hilarious and wonderful results.” Punched barcode.
