keith fullerton whitman
here we have three 1-minute excerpts from keith fullerton whitman's brand new ep, lisbon. i am forced to only post excerpts rather than complete tracks for one main reason: the entire ep is actually just one, single 41-minute track - a live recording of kfw's october 4th, 2005 performance at lisbon, portugal's galeria zé dos bois (pictured here). as such, i cannot post a complete track or else i would be giving you the entire recording for free. and we all know nothing's free these days. right?
anyway, these excerpts don't come anywhere close to capturing the magic of keith fullerton whitman's performance in lisbon, but they are only intended to give you a small taste of it. this is something that must be listened to in its entirety and all at once. i beg you to.
"this recording...is in my mind the perfect encapsulation of all of these elements into a single lilting piece of static sine-tone harmonics, squared-off electric guitar haze, clangorous room-tone eruptions, and high-end synth freakouts."

"at times the performances are somber and gentle, progressing along with a slow grace and subtle nuances, and there are other moments when Whitman destroys that vibe with tension and dissonance."

i don't think i could have said it any better myself - highly recommended!
