Noise and the city


The French netlabel autres directions in music present a fascinating collection of sound art/ electronica derived from city sounds. This 2 disc set is not only available as a free MP3 download complete with printable artwork, but also has an option to buy - for as little as 14 euros. ( mmm, I'll be getting myself a copy especially if the double vinyl is still available). Most of the artists invovled are new to me but it's the quality of the music that really strikes you, no harsh feedback unlistenable cop-outs here just creative input all the way and it soon becomes obvious that almost anything can be rhythmic.
