The prolific experimenter known to friends and fans alike as Jim O’Rourke, is gearing up for the next installment of his vinyl series Old News, following last year’s sweet #5 and sweeter #6 . Each installment of the series provides a vinyl-only glimpse into O’Rourke’s electronic synth archive,
This time around, we are gifted with tracks such as “Welcome to the Django,” a two-sided mid-90s excursion of O’Rourke’s first experiments with a Serge modular system, and “Tacere Fas,” the piece originally appearing on the compilation Unentitled on These Records in 1994. There’s also a recent recording from a live performance in Nagoya at Tokuzo from last year. Masterpiece!!
