Wounded Knee - Anicca

(Krapp Tapes)

This latest excursion in Drew Wright’s ongoing adventure in ethno-celtic vocal loops marries two extended pieces back-to-back on a cassette that comes in a plain brown, hand-stamped envelope and wrapped in an offcut of Harris tweed.

Where ‘Whither?’ eventually morphs into snatches of Al Green’s ‘Take me To The River’, on the flipside ‘Wither’ is a kind of dub version of the former, and comes over more biblical in its bullfrog mantra. The length of both tracks allows Wright’s extrapolations space enough to breathe, and makes for an ideal accompaniment for Sunday afternoon strolls up Arthur’s Seat with bigger hills in mind. There’s even a plaster included in the envelope in case you trip on the crags.
