"Providences Scott Reber, has been recording under the Work/Death moniker for years, yet no two releases sound the same. Progression is key to W/D, never staying stuck in the same zone for too long, but consistently creating dense, focus compositions. �??Ruptural Strictures�?� combines acoustic piano and string work reminiscent of Lucier, layered densely, creating textured and meaningful drones. In an edition of 100 tapes with full color cardstock covers and printed labels." -Arbor

Artist: WORK/DEATH
Title: Phone About To Ring
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Work/Death might be a new name to most, but for anyone listening to noise that is lucky enough to be based in and around Rhode Island, then Scott Rebers grizzled drones are likely a well-known staple. Reber is something of the noise musicians noise musician, and his deeply knowledgable and surprisingly technical take on the sound has left those able to source one of his rare tapes or manage to catch a show slack-jawed. One such tape is Phone About to Ring, which emerged from the ether on Rebers own Three Songs Of Lenin imprint in 2012 with little fanfare. Now Type is proud to announce that it is being given the deluxe treatment, and has been remastered by Reber himself before being cut to vinyl for the first time. The music itself is hard to get a grip on -- two effortlessly gloomy passages of sludgy, ominous noise, which in the wrong hands could end up falling into usual traps, but with Reber at the helm sound both fresh and deeply complex. Instruments are bashed into near obscurity by Rebers steady-handed layers of tape-hiss and crunch, and thick, doomy bass echoes like an earthquake in the background. The most startling aspect of Phone About to Ring is Rebers ability to inject harmony into his stark, low-end rumbles and piercing cacophony. Comparable to Tim Hecker or even Thomas Köner at times, Reber makes noise that has a lot more beneath the surface that you might initially realize, and Phone About to Ring is his most concise and involving statement to date. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." - Type
