I Am A Prune Cake On A Background Of Semolina - (16:15) 155 BPM
Review: The Black Truffle label is known for coming up with exciting new talent from all over the sphere, talent whose musical skills don't seem to be tied down to one genre or mood, and this new two-tracker from 3/4 Had Been Eliminated is as vast as you can possibly get in terms of experimentalism. "Nekiya" is a tenebrous movement of drones and hollow sonics, and this chilly frost of electronica is crystallised further in the ice cold terrain that occupies the glacial frontier that is "I Am A Prune Cake On A Background Of Semolina". Glorious and wild. Top marks.

Natural History Part 2 - (30:23) 104 BPM
Review: Woah! The Black Truffle label have just jumped up a notch in our rankings with this unexpected - and incredibly on-point - reissue of Alvin Curran's 1983 Natural History LP. If you like neo-classical mixed up with noise and electro-acoustic business, then this is kind of like the Holy Grail. In fact, Part 1 actually sounds like something mythical, a crescendo of hymnal voices and fluttering instruments reaching a climax. On the other hand, Part 2 is purely driven by field recordings of port sounds and subtle tweaks of sonic glitches. It is a rather special affair, indeed, and you'll want to hit the DL button because this stuff is impossible to come by on other formats.

Pad Phet Gob - (16:16) 148 BPM
Review: Canadian sound designer Crys Cole is no stranger to the work of the judicious Oren Ambrachi. In fact, the two have already collaborated thanks to an EP for Bocian Records back in 2012, but it's safe to say that plenty has happened since then and that both artists have had a chance to evolve significantly. Black Truffle is responsible for this turn of events, an affair that starts with the loose, open-minded drones of "Call Myself" and its companion, the comparatively more tenebrous noises of "Francis Debacle". "Burrata", much like the real thing, is a soft and gentle gloop of sparkly sonics, while "Pad Phet Gob" throws us into the jungle, literally surrounded by a swarm of overhead insects. Predictably unpredictable.

Review: Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi make quite the team when it comes to free-spirited jazz and drone, and this latest head-t-head on Black Truffle is a little piece of class. "Who Is So Cleverly Manipulating The Word Everything" has an Eastern percussive twang to it, but O'Rourke's vocals render it more absurd than pensive. "Be Careful Of This Word New With Its Glittering Trap" is a bold-faced noise tune with all the trimmings; "The Universe Is Tired Please For Just One Second Stop Thinking" adds a mechanical drum flex to the noisy surrounding flying overhead; finally, "That ? Squatting Proudly At The Edge Of Surface Tension Is It Perhaps A" heads down a murkier, more contained territory that strikes a fine chord with us. Delightfully mad.

Review: Oren Ambarchi's Black Truffle label continues its quest to become the number one hotspot for the most daring of neo free-jazz improvisations. This ambitious task is set to be fulfilled good and proper if the likes of Australia's Will Guthrie are given the helm, and especially if the output sounds this good. People Pleaser sees the multi-talented drummer and instrumentalist spread his wizardry across a whole plethora of styles and niche influences, meaning that this isn't really jazz but something much darker and tentative. In fact, remnants of field recordings, glitches, noise and power electronics can be heard at the core of these eleven experiments, and we can't say that this is for the faint of heart. On the contrary, fans of both Ambrachi, or even Dilloway's material on his own Hanson Records will surely find plenty of moments to marvel at in here. This is an excellent LP; we recommend not snoozing on this one.
