Berkshire based trio Revbjelde (pronounced REV-BA-JELD) release their debut LP exclusiely for Record Store Day.
Alan Gubby, an audio archivist best known for his work unearthing classic BBC Radiophonic Workshop recordings by Delia Derbyshire & John Baker, is joined on this record by sound artist Richard Bentley, and bassist & harp player Roy Goss.
“It's our Brexit album. We set light to the family's beloved Victorian piano & sledgehammered it to bits"
Combining medieval British folk instrumentation with industrial electronics, field recordings, lurching ethnic percussion, tape loops & jazz improvisations, Revbjelde’s sound oscillates between anger & reverence, alluding to a divided, decaying land of magic & tradition that perhaps never was.
STAFF COMMENTSBarry says: This is an odd proposition indeed, but it's bloody brilliant. Brimming with electronic excursions, weird jazzy sections and cosmic spaced-out breakdowns. Swirling proggy passages, whirring oscillators and heady freak-outs. A cohesive but multi-faceted treat for the senses.
