Temporary Residence Limited – TRR306LP
2 × LP, Remastered, Gatefold
Released:(13 Jul 2018 Repress)
Originally released on Invada Records in 2009, Geoff Barrow’s label. I’ve been hearing and reading about Beak> all year, wanting to know what the buzz was all about.
The Temporary Residence promo box arrived yesterday, time to dig deep and find out. The first 2 tracks are giving me a bit of a Silver Apples vibe. Song 3? If Sun Ra dabbled in plodding doom bass, you’d have an idea . I expect the journey to reveal different sonic landscapes but I am clearly on the path to something worthwhile. Black Mountain is coming to mind as well, let’s see what the rest of the songs and albums put forth.
