Artist: RIMARIMBA
Title: Below the Horizon
Format: LP
Label: Rvng International
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
Edition of 750, includes high quality digital download code. "The first in the Rimarimba series, 1983s Below The Horizon, features Robert Cox in exploratory mode, figuring out exactly how to make his music. Theres a pleasure in hearing how he feels out the parameters of his aesthetic, here – theres a boxy minimalism, slightly clunky and charming with it, that reflects the home-spun, improvisatory tenor of the compositions. Its ambitious music, though, wanting to do the most and the best it can with its limited resources. Cox himself admits to not being “pre-wired” to making this music, but that only makes it more compelling: “Were I to be properly musical, it wouldnt actually work as well in some ways; itd be just another album of contemporary clattery music.” - Rvng International.

Artist: RIMARIMBA
Title: In The Woods
Format: LP
Label: Unlikely
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
Original unplayed/copies of this 1985 LP by post punk/homemade avant-garde artist Robert Cox. Features Dave Walklett. Restock of all the available releases from Alan Jenkins (main man behind Deep Freeze Mice, Chrysanthemums, etc..) late-70s-through-mid-80s Cordelia label and a few other related titles. "Rimarimba and Unlikely Records were the brainchild of Robert Cox. Between 1981 and 1985, Unlikely released cassettes and LPs by Coxs own projects under various guises, as well as Milovan Srdenovic ‘Voodoo Bastard. ‘In The Woods is the second Rimarimba LP, this time with the assistance from Davy Walklett (guitar) and Lenny Bove on a few tracks. Rimarimbas music is mostly keyboard based with the occasional sampler oddity, weird treated vocals or guitar. Tracks are build on synth loops, interesting electronic sonorities, melodic counterpoint and humour. Rimarimabas great achievement on this LP also relies on rhythm, with the use of complex rhythms intertwined with exquisite melodies. To this listener, the music is reminiscent of post-RIO bands like ZNR or Débile Menthol, with a naivety a la Look De Book or even Klimperei. Track titles are indeed very descriptive of the content, and very funny at that. This legendary LP still sounds fresh today." - Continuo blog.
