ORGAN THING: New abstract experimentalism from Bristol’s LTO, the video work of Helen Plumb and more delicate things from C. Duncan…

Organ Thing Of The Day…. that’s what this evolved stripped down version of Organ is about, one thing, one thing left here for you to simply drop by and check out. Today we have this rather good looking video, the work of video maker Helen Plumb, a video that flow s so well with a piece of music called  Trabajar, a track taken from LTO‘s No Pasa Nada EP, something that came out on Injazero Records back on March 30th.

The full EP can be explore (and indeed bought) via the LTO Bandcamp page


“A solo electronic producer based in Bristol, LTO first garnered attention and praise in 2011 as part of the Old Apparatus collective with their abstract experimental bass-driven music, submerged in swirls and fragments of otherworldly static and interference.

lto_coverNow working on solo music as well as with the collective, LTO’s first release under his own name is the characteristically mysterious No Pasa Nada EP, a heady cloud of greyscale sound design, ghostly timbres and deep sonics. It is at once challenging and mesmerizing, crafted in part from found sound and field recordings, treated and disguised beyond their origins. The result is a production neither fully organic nor mechanic, reminiscent of the fertile UK grime and dubstep scenes (delays, claps, 808 sounds are all present here) but with a nocturnal miasma and a fierce intellect. The influence of post-rock and modern classical music can also be heard throughout the record in its harmonic progressions, compositional structures and in its division between artist and output.The No Pasa Nada name and track titles – common Spanish verbs – are informed by LTO’s backpacking travels through South America, as much a field recording excursion as a cultural tour”.

More of Helen Plumb‘s recent impressive video making, this time a video made for something new from C Duncan.
Here To There is a track from the forthcoming C Duncan LP ‘Architect’, due for release by FatCat Records in July 2015. Previous C.Duncan coverage here.
And that’s it, today’s Thing of The Day..  and here’s one of the artists heading to Play at the start of June
