Written by Squonkamatic

Really really enjoying this set and had to speak up. In spite of "just" being a 2 song set itís absolutely worth every penny and a Frippertronics devoteeís fantasy: A fly on the wallís live sonic view of the Frippertronics process at the height of its majesty. Removed from the punk sensibilities of New York & America where the shorter pieces might be more appropriate, he pulls out the stops and weaves two magnificent sound tapestries made up of sections linked by common aural themes.

"Green Libraries 1" even features marvelous use of noise as a "thud-thud" like tone echoes throughout the final few minutes much like the scratching sound from Let The Power Fallís "1985". Somehow he worked it into the tonal progression like a rhythm pattern, creating one of the most complete examples of the loop-only process at work.

I would point to this and the show from July 6 in Rochester NY as the two must-have entries for the loops only fans out there. This is the goods we waited thirty years for, snap it up so theyíll release more.
