Repeat Customer Edition: Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler And nonkeen
Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler: Music Inspired By Philippe Garrel’s Le Révélateur
This week I’ve got two artists who already released a RecommNed-worthy album earlier in 2016, but have both come out with another record you should definitely check out. A couple months ago, I hipped you to the wonderful new one from Mary Lattimore, what I called “a mesmerizing, hypnotic set of tracks.” If you dug that one, her latest, part of her ongoing collaboration with Jeff Zeigler is just as good. The album is music that the duo plays as a live soundtrack to the silent film, Le Révélateur. Lattimore’s harp and Zeigler’s atmospheric electronics are stark and achingly gorgeous. Unique and powerful, it’s the soundtrack to your emotions both joyous and melancholy.
nonkeen: oddments of the gamble
Way back in the winter, the German trio nonkeen put out one of my favorite new albums of the year, the gamble. The music and the group were a revelation. Apparently that album was just a selection from a wider range of tracks they put down in the studio. The appropriately-named oddments of the gamble is another batch that shows another more experimental side. Excellent grooves and electronic-jazz weirdness pair nicely and show that when it comes to these childhood friends, there’s plenty more where that came from. Enjoy!
