Album Review

O’rourke, Jim – “Old News No. 5” – [Editions Mego]

humana   7/9/2011   12-inch, A Library

Old News is good news, as far as I’m concerned. Four sidelong epics of mellowness (A), dark murkiness with slot-machine, loose-change chinking and clinking (B), murky submerged ship feeling (C), and staticky, noisy evolution into an arcade eeriness (D). Recorded at different times and places (Tokyo or Chicago), but all with the signature brilliance of Jim O’Rourke. Sit back and let the stampede of precipitation surround you.
