Jim O'Rourke - Old News Vol 5

by >100

What’s the pleasure in Old News?

Old News is still fresh to the ears, a timely reminder of the timelessness of worthwhile music. O’Rourke’s sense of directed play is elegantly considered without being cumbersome. The synthi is a pleasure to behold in his hands – swinging from visceral stabs to more achingly melodious shifts.

‘Pedal To Pedal’ summarises this best – a genuinely melodic survey of warbling blips and casual control voltage eruptions. ‘Its Not His Room Anymore’ by contrast is a brooding excursion, free roaming, but weary. Vol 3+4 to fill the gap please.
