Artist: DELIVERY HEALTH
Title: Hard Off
Format: LP
Label: Silent Water
Country: Belgium
Price: $29.00
"Delivery Health is Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke, and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto. Following the release of Delivery Health in 2015 (SW 010LP), the trio composed by Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto returns with yet another amazing album. Delivery Health became the band name and Hard Off is the title of the second album. Recorded at the great GOK Sound studio in Tokyo, Hard Off brings the same warmness in sound (thanks again also to the fabulous mixing work done by ORourke) and attentive structural sensibility, this time with a more "lyrical" vein. Against the odds of geography -- continuously coming together within various collaborations and combinations of the three -- Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke, Tatsuhisa Yamamoto have begun to assemble one of the most exciting bodies of organized sound in recent years. The trios second outing under the moniker Delivery Health is no exception to the rule. Recorded in Tokyo between 2012 and 2013 and emerging on the ambitious Silent Water imprint, Hard Off sidesteps signifiers and expectations, weaving a knotted tapestry from sheets of sound. An assembly, a lesson, and a simple conversation between friends, Hard Off is equally an exercise in loss. Its creators are three masters of their form, relinquishing ego and presumption for the honesty found in unforeseen truths. Preconception, reflex, and imprint fall away; a potent reminder of heights unveiled by the unmediated self. Hard Off is a non-place, an undetermined sonic location without allegiance. These are considerations which begin with the ear -- elastic excursions and experiments in improvised sound. Presenting startling and unexpected range, new worlds emerge and evolve from within the fog; rippling textural ambiance, harsh interlocking atonality, subtle and delicate interplay to outright rocking jam. An album which always seeming exactly what and where it needs to be, while moving toward where must be gone. Cover picture by Antonio Julio Duarte. 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 300." - Silent Water.

Artist: DI DOMENICO, GIOVANNI
Title: Duos With Guitars
Format: Double LP
Label: Silent Water
Country: Belgium
Price: $29.00
2015 release. "Giovanni Di Domenicos Duos With Guitars features Norberto Lobo, Tetuzi Akiyama, and Jim ORourke. Recorded during the course of three years (from 2011-2013) in various locations in Brussels and Tokyo, this double LP puts together three of the most uncompromising and original guitar players of the globe (there should have been a fourth great guitar player, the late Hans Reichel, but unfortunately he passed away days before asking him to join the project), all with their unique sound and approach to music and their instrument, all glued together by Giovannis ever personal and forward music thinking. Three-sided LP; side four should have had a duo with the late Hans Reichel. This record is dedicated to him." - Silent Water.

Artist: DI DOMENICO, GIOVANNI/JIM OROURKE/TATSUHISA YAMAMOTO
Title: Delivery Health
Format: LP
Label: Silent Water
Country: Belgium
Price: $29.00
2015 release. "Delivery Health is the highly idiosyncratic trio of Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke, and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto. The recording was done in Tokyos great GOK Sound, directly on a 24-track tape recorder, and was mixed at Steamroom, Tokyo, by Jim ORourke himself. The blend of early 70s ECM drum sound, long unfolding travelogues, and a great transparency in the mix, gives to this record a breadth and depth make the music hard to categorize. Jazz (think John Abercrombies Gateway (1975) and, again, early ECM), electronic drones (reminiscent of Tony Conrad), and the most organic of rock sound (especially in drummer Tatsuhisa Yamamotos tightness and openness) fuse in a very special way. Cover picture by Antonio Julio Duarte. 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 300." - Silent Water.
