Out of stock

Already sold out at source ! Ltd edition of 350 LP. 'Wound response' is the third solo harp release by improviser and harpist Rhodri Davies following his albums 'Trem' (2003) and 'Over Shadows' (2007) on the Confront Label. Moved by the diverse and vital music scene in the North East of England this is a weighty departure for Davies. wound response is loud, distorted and forms an attempt to work with rhythm and pitches in an open and fluid way. The album comes pressed on heavyweight translucent vinyl and is housed in an exceptionally heavy four colour four panel silk screened sleeve produced by blank Studios with original artwork by the seminal French artist Jean Luc Guionnet. 'Rhodri Davies thinks and plays far beyond the harp is able to.' Yasunao Tone


“The sound is hellish but engaging – there’s a splash of Velvet Underground, or an echo of Congolese group Konono No1, with their thumb pianos cranked through jerry-rigged megaphones…Each track ends drenched in a squeal of feedback, gasping for breath before diving back in.” – Clive Bell, The Wire
