Annie Shaw - "Shanty Awe" c30 (Old Frontiers)

For a while now I've admired Old Frontiers graphic design and quality experimental releases. The label struck me first as almost an art project that happen to be connected to spacey music, but I've come to appreciate a great many of their cassettes on purely musical terms. Annie Shaw's album, Shanty Awe, is a very good piece of collage drones & bits o' melody smashed together in a true trip of a listen. Old Frontiers describes this tape as a, "... 30 minute album containing so many shades of conjoined melodic and dissonance colour which lay its body somewhere within the realm of innocent improvisation and premeditated alchemy. This is DAUNTINGLY HAUNTINGLY GORGEOUS music..." I have to say, I pretty much agree...
