OUT NOW: new albums of the Dale Cooper Quartet & Orson Hentschel


#1

Hey.

Thanks a lot for the great feedback regarding the new releases. All preorders are on the way to you. The limited colored editions of the new Dale Cooper Quartet album are already gone.

The Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones are returning with their 4th album called “Astrild Astrild”. Like all of the previous albums, the band recorded the seven pieces at home in Britanny during several sessions between 2013 and 2016. 50’s crooners singers, noisy guitars, atmospheric electronic and hypnotic jazz. All of these elements painted in monochrome black. There’s also a reissue of the third album „Quatorze Pièces De Menace“ available. The first two albums are also still in stock on all formats.

Almost one year after his debut LP „Feed The Tape“, Orson Hentschel enters new musical terrain wearing old shoes. His second LP Electric Stutter, which is almost 55 minutes long, is only loosely connected to his debut. Whereas Feed The Tape was strongly shaped by Classical Minimal Music, Hentschel now incorporates influences of Trip-Hop and Electronic Pop Music.

DALE COOPER QUARTET & THE DICTAPHONES · ASTRILD ASTRILD CD | 2x12’’ | DIGITAL

The Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones are returning with their 4th album called “Astrild Astrild”. Like all of the previous albums, the band recorded the seven pieces at home in Britanny during several sessions between 2013 and 2016.

The characteristics of this full-length are classic drone soundscapes mixed with deep tone saxophone parts that became the band’s trademark since the release of their debut album in 2006. Slowly paced, the new tracks are following the Quartet’s basic structure and classical sound. Apart from that the new full length conceals more live takes including guitars, bass and Rhodes keys and even piano sounds are haunting for the first time at the end of ‘Ocho Acenteur’. With these new elements the songs of “Astrild Astrild” are pushed further into a large tunnel of deafening rhythmic parts and field ambiant textures.

Vocals are a major element of the Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones’ DNA since the second album “Metamanoir” (2011). Sometimes breathy, sometimes deep and often mysterious, Ronan MacErlaine, Gaëlle Kerrien and Zalie Bellacicco voices appear in the corners of the songs as ghostly figures or eerie characters.

The new album “Astrild Astrild” is a glimpse of the present live sound of the Dale Cooper Quartet: 50’s crooners singers, noisy guitars, atmospheric electronic and hypnotic jazz. All of these elements painted in monochrome black.

DALE COOPER QUARTET & THE DICTAPHONES · QUATORZE PIÈCES DE MENACE CD | 2x12’’ | DIGITAL

2017 Reissue of the third album called ”Quatorze Pièces de Menace” from 2013. A hint of 50s cool jazz, a truckload of noise and melodies, again tiny references to Twin Peaks’ series soundtrack and some ghostly and deep tone voices: the Dale Cooper Quartet pushes the genre Darkjazz towards other spaces. Recorded in Brest, Britanny, France, this album always conveys an atmosphere of strangeness and beauty, the trademark of every Quartet’s records. Based upon the live experiences of the band and their everlasting love for the local landscapes, Quatorze Pièces de Menace is as striking, deep, fascinating and beautiful as a storm in the middle of the Atlantic.

ORSON HENTSCHEL · ELECTRIC STUTTER CD | 2x12’’ | DIGITAL

Almost one year after his debut LP Feed The Tape, Orson Hentschel enters new musical terrain wearing old shoes. His second LP Electric Stutter, which is almost 55 minutes long, is only loosely connected to his debut. Whereas Feed The Tape was strongly shaped by Classical Minimal Music, Hentschel now incorporates influences of Trip-Hop and Electronic Pop Music. Since his childhood, he considers artists like Massive Attack, Portishead and Björk as some of his most important sources of inspiration. The influence of this kind of popular music is clearly audible. Hentschel’s new tracks are shorter, more shaped and reduced in the density of their sound material. Pattern-oriented repetitions, which where in the focus of Feed The Tape, now fulfil the function of sophisticated sub-components of the overall composition and are subordinate to the melodic forms or merge with them. Also the amount of sample-based material has decreased in order to create space for synthetically produced sounds with melodic character. Electric Stutter is more complex and more detailed than Feed The Tape. At the same time the reduced density of sound material and the higher amount of melodies form a kind of music that is more easily accessible.

Describing Orson Hentschel only as a composer of contemporary music does not do him justice. In his self-conception as an audio-visual artist he creates his own live show, combining lights, visuals and fog to a stunning atmosphere, which cannot be eluded. Supported by live-drummer Lukas Baumgart, Hentschel delivers a sound, whose energy is physically palpable and electrifies the audience. A live-show generating an intense experience, going to the limit and erasing any sense of time. Orson Hentschel moves perceptions not merely through sheer volume, but with driving repetitions and extensive tension.
