More Info

"Das neue Album der beliebten Ambient/Post-Rock-Band, diesmal sehr minimal und zart, wenig songorientiert, dafr eine sehr sanfte, magisch-dronige Atmosphre..
...Very minimal and sad, with long droney sequences.... 4 long tracks, produced by Steve Albini." [Drone Records info 2001]

"To record their sixth album, the members of Labradford met in Chicago to work with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in June 1999. fixed::context finds the trio stripping off the string trios of the last two albums and working with interlocking sound sources and modifiers; Carter Brown's vintage synthesizers, organs and electric piano, the distinctive Duane Eddy plays Satie guitar of Mark Nelson and Bobby Donne's four and six string basses. Beginning with the 16 minute 'Twenty', Labdradford demonstrate grasp of the dialectic between organic sound sources, digital processing and composition. The guitar duet 'Up To Pizmo' shows a refocusing on basic elements like melody and twang while samples pulse below and keyboards waft above." [label info]
