Editions Mego Launch Party at Exotic Pylon- Cindytalk & Robert Hampson

This is the one...
Exotic Pylon is extremely proud to be the host for the official launch party of the new Cindytalk/ Robert Hampson split 10" on Editions Mego.
Cindytalk will be improvising live throughout the show and they're bringing some very special guests including a mystery guest DJ that even i'm in the dark about!!!
Resonance have graciously given us an extra 30 minutes sonic playtime this week so we're running 10pm til midnight.
Show available for download Sunday evening Exotic Pylon .

Boomkat Review:
"This split 10" from Editions Mego features new work from Cindytalk (whose album, The Crackle Of My Soul was released towards the end of last year by the Austrian label) and Robert Hampson (best known for his work with Loop and Main). On Cindytalk's side 'Five Mountains Of Fire' plays out as a bristling, very organic piece of realtime soundscaping, performed by a group who meld abstract drum and guitar tones with the electronic component of their work. The erratic, nervy percussion guides the piece with a real sense of edge and volatility, meaning that it never strays into humdrum drone territory and remains a deeply unsettled work throughout its duration. On Robert Hampson's side, 'Antarctica Ends Here' comes with a dedication to John Cale, and avoids the tempestuousness of its A-side companion, instead favouring a very harmonious and steadied compositional approach that delicately arranges piano, jangling, almost sleigh bell-like percussion and a deeply undulating flow of richly sonorous electronic tones."
