"... digitale drone-Schwebeflchen mit Harmonien & Noise, Stakkato-Eruptionen, aber alles trumerisch wie durch einen FETTEN Nebel-Schleier wahrgenommen. Very nice microdetail-ambience release from this canadian artist, dreamlike digi-drone-clouds as if perceived through a fat FOG-veil..

Tim Hecker is considered one of the most talented and inventive i Canada's new breed of electronic musicians. Whereas his contemporaries often work within the confines of recognizable genres, critics and peers alike have been quick to note that Hecker's work has grown increasingly original and unclassifiable. If one were to draw a comparison, an apt description for "Radio Amor" would fall somewhere in between Fennesz's "Endless Summer" and Oval's "Diskont 94". Because of its combination of sheer experimentation and organic fluidity, this album rises to a level of synchronicity achieved by only a handful of albums in the past few years. Truly an exciting artistic achievement.
Having released two critically acclaimed full-lengths on Montreal's Alien8/Substractif imprint, Tim Hecker is set to make his Mille Plateaux debut this spring. Fans of the label family will already be aware of Hecker's work through his minimal techno alias, Jetone on Force Inc. "Ultramarin", Jetone's second outing, was one of Force Inc's more adventurous releases of last year. Unlike its predecessors, this release abandons the coma-like ether of structured rhythms for a much more rewarding world of white noise, trade winds, and a miasmic mixture of saturated piano and guitar melody. A mature work indeed, especially important in such an era of reckless cultural inundation. [press release Mille Plateaux]
