our first good ol’ standard show since – let’s see – september, 2009! our framework250 celebrations have finally come to an end, and we’re quite pleased to finally be delving into the ever-growing pile of submissions that have been waiting so patiently in the corner while we not-very-subtley celebrated our landmark 250th show for, well, something like 15 shows. but there you go, we never were one for understatement. and some real gems this time around – for one, the absolutely stunning catastrophe point #5 (with trumpets!) from lethe and the ever-brilliant intransitive records from my own dear hometown of boston. i’ve been a fan of lethe’s abandoned warehouse recordings in the catastrophe point series since the beginning, but this one has definitely taken the biscuit. also some very lovely shimmering drones from jamie drouin and yann novak, and some texture and crunch from thomas tilly (aka tô) and morfrom.
ah, but! you have not yet heard the phrase framework250 for the last time! because now that the celebrations are over, the souvenirs can begin!
the framework250 celebratory compilations are now finished and ready to ship! man, were they a lot of work, and man, do we think they look and sound great. 42 artists bringing you 40 exclusive works on your choice of 2 double-disc editions (so that’s 4 discs in all), featuring all the framework regulars and favorites (jeph jerman, chris watson, tarab, giancarlo toniutti, jim haynes, toshiya tsunoda, peter cusack, steve roden, phill niblock, and many, many more…) in hand-cut, hand-folded, hand-silk-screened opaque origami sleeves, with inlay cards printed on 100% recycled estonian-made paper from the rapina village paper factory, about 20km from me here in mooste, with sounds slow-burnt onto the highest quality taiyo yuden cdrs, and hand-stamped with custom made rubber stamps. whew. what’s more, the donation you make to get yourself one (or both!) is a great sign of support for framework and our ability to continue, and as always, 25% or your donation goes directly to resonancefm in london.
