Ela Orleans - She who could BIND you
Ela Orleans has been releasing new records & tapes at about the same non-stop pace as her often time split collaboratorDirty Beaches. The cover above was from their Double Feature split 12” with Alex, and most recently they also did a 4 way split together with Slim Twig and U.S. Girls. See what I mean? Non stop releases. Across her many releases, she has continued to vary her sound, experimenting with universally excellent results.
So this latest track is from yet another split cassette with Curt Crackrach, called 80 Minutes of Funk. Seeing as it just went up for sale and this is the only track up, here’s what the label says:
Here Curt Crackrach (aka Nattymari/Netnanny/Ron Hardly etc) brings us 40 minutes of library and movie archive influenced beats. A joyride through underground sounds all held together by Curt’s unique aspect to production. With hints of the classic Warp records sound, hip hop, outsider funk and acid house all fused together to make his own signature sound.
Ela Olreans brings us 40 minutes of her work for television, soundtracks and radio remixed and re imagined with some new songs all woven together in this epic journey to some other place. Amazing soundscapes collide with melody and an eerie knowledge of sound, both found and composed. A wonderful trip indeed.
Curt Crackrach / Ela Olreans - 80 Minutes Of Funk cassette is Ltd to 100 copies and available from Clan Destine here. Five quid for 80 minutes? Sounds like a steal to me.
