j’aime le label autrichien les Editions Mego fondé par Peter Rehberg

22 Avr

Editions Mego is a reincarnation of the now defunct Mego label. Its aims are to maintain the back catalogue and legacy of the Mego label, as well as release new works.


In 2010 Rachel Evans released « Seeping Through the Veil of the Unconscious », an expansive, magic trick of a cassette which captivated an unsuspecting American cassette underground and made dedicated fans instantly. Digitalis released fine editions of the « Seeping… » as well as the acclaimed follow-up « Luminaries and Synastries » on LP which packed an equally potent punch. Since then much anticipation has been created from her work with husband Grant Evans, including a split LP on Aguirre Records in late 2011 and various releases as duo Quiet Evenings

Evans has since been hard at work on an expansive, definitive 2xLP project, carefully arranging sounds to create immense, alchemical side-long tracks which push the boundries of the project into new territory. These incredible new highs are documented in a clear, spacious fidelity where cerebral sounds gently flow and wash through the stereo field creating a beautiful deep listening situation. Big changes in sound and scope are evident; a shift from the murky, mysterious haze of the older recordings into a highly addictive concentrate of airy tones and gem-like glow, each track forming a universal sky-map . There is, however, no loss of mystique. One of Evans most charming elements is her ability to create a divine magnetism, and to capture this very magic unfiltered, raw and uncomprimised. Very few have the capability to create this powerful energy and make is as accessible as Evans does.

This full-length definitive album is a high water mark in Motion Sickness of Time Travel discography. An album masterfully crafted with ambition, crystal clear vision and dedicated focus. Mastered for vinyl by Lawrence English and cut for vinyl at Dubplates and Mastering.(sources edition mego)

Alexander Moskos is a seasoned Canadian avant-garde musician active in projects such as Alterity Problem with Joel Taylor and the legendary Thames, who had an incredible 7″ release on American Tapes in late 2011. Drainolith, his solo guise, has been active since the mid noughties but has remained relatively under the radar with mysterious private press cassette and cd-r releases. In 2009 Moskos picked up a heavy U.S. tour regiment and caught the attention of U.S. underground heads with impressive live sets. It was around this time that Moskos began to dial in songs for his debut « Fighting! » lp, which we are eager to present.

It’s important to keep listeners on their toes and Spectrum Spools is fully psyched to hit you with an album of delusional blues – littered with fractured synth, feedback and seriously cryptic personal content. One of our first releases with strong lyrical focus, Alex knocks it out of the park with his synthetic voice resonating like a wasted Robert Ashley on Ambien. The tracks rage with a one man « Twin infinitives » style, with guitar riffs so fucked that they make Neil Haggerty sound like Les Paul. Damaged, random, syn-drum triggers and MS-10 crackling go fully ballistic over dark and personal narratives. Despite the chaotic nature of the music, there is a defined and cohesive song structure to each track which makes everything more confusing but also highly enjoyable to listen to.

If you miss bands like Shadow Ring and Royal Trux, but wonder where the logical next step would be in their absence: step in this direction – we promise you’ll be pleased. Mastered and Cut by Rashad Becker at D+M, Berlin.(source editions mego)
