A Mix of tapes and files for Kit Records, 17/07/2017. Many thanks Richard!
The Fresh Water cassette from Jake Marshall is finally ready to trickle into your ears. On a chance meeting with Jake at a Eurovision song contest party (_🔥) in London last year, my friend Jordan (an incredible musician himself), mentioned that Jake does music (and it’s spectacular), I cant remember exactly what adjectives he used, something like, totemic, minimal, animal… mineral… Anyway at the time we were talking about it Jake resiliently maintained “it’s nothing really” and proceeded to change the subject endlessly when I tried to get more from him. But after some streams appeared out of the blue days later I found out that Fresh Water is far from nothing. It’s a work of totemic taste and beauty with a supple edge, that grinds its way into you. It’s a unique and incredibly inspiring work, we’re well chuffed that we get to bring it to public ears. This is Jake’s debut and it flaunts a significant gravity, it’s a hefty slab of rawness, playfulness and unlike anything else. Please listen and show your support for Jake by grabbing a tape or download. We’re down to just 5 tapes now so be quick! Massive thank you’s go to Jake, Jordan, Dominik, Matus, Juraj and the Lobsters for making this happen.
From Facebook – “This photo is from a Foundling video shoot where I almost drowned, which you’ll never see (apart from a tiny clip I’m gonna use because it didn’t really work for the whole track) but we got this photo at least. Which Luis Calow took, which I love, bathing in our weird bathroom in London, unusually angled at a 30º slant into the wall; I have fallen over yes, taking the shower curtain down in the process. In Jan/Feb I have a new tape coming out. It took me almost two years to collate and mix and make and record and remake and tweak and test live (more plz). It’s not only kind and gentle like my previous record it’s also angry, as fuck. In a few weeks i’ll start posting about it, I can’t wait to show you the album cover from Marco Berardi and Karolina Kubik it’s absolutely stunning. I also cannot wait to show you the videos me and my Luis and Adriana have made; based on ideas for performances which I have had in mind for a while now, shot quick and edited quick in just one evening each. I’m incredibly pleased that videogamemusic are gonna release it on cassette/digital for me with a screen printed cover and all ! Please, I want you all to know about ‘Hope Is Red / Jordan’ its coming very soon…” [19/12/2016]
