William Ryan Fritch‘s recently released album Revisionist, part of the Leave Me Sessions which celebrates and compiles his immense compositions and songs, saw him partnering with other stellar artists and bands. We had already heard the song ‘Still’ featuring Esmé Patterson and now Fritch is offering a fittingly enchanting time-lapsing video to accompany ‘Unholy Frames’, written collaboratively with Origamibiro. Rett Rogers and Andrew Busti direct.
At the end of last year, the good folks at Denovali Records added Origamibiro to their roster and announced the release of the outfit’s fourth album. Odham’s Standard arrives on February 28th and ahead of it, Denovali have recently released Origamibiro’s entire back catalogue comprising the albums Cracked Mirrors and Stopped Clocks, Shakkei and Shakkei Remixed.
Initially started as the brainchild project of musician, soundtrack composer and producer Tom Hill, the project evolved into an audio-visual collective with the later addition of visual artist and filmmaker The Joy Of Box aka Jim Boxall and multi-instrumentalist Andy Tytherleigh. Origamibiro use unusual sources and ways to create music as the press release notes, and their live shows “involve treated books, typewriters, found celluloid, paper, eerie wildlife recordings, home movies, sellotape and bespoke visual contraptions”.
To get you excited for the release of Odham’s Standard, take a listen to the album’s wonderful opening track ‘Ada Deane’ and straight after watch the video that accompanies the intricate and delicate title track.
When we first posted about the imaginative and enchantingly talented British composer and musician Poppy Ackroyd, we never dreamt she would one day get involved with our monthly mixtape. Since then, she released an outstanding debut album, Escapement, where she explores and experiments with the piano and the violin, mirroring her intricate relationship with the two instruments. Also, our dream came true and this month she picked and mixed seventeen stunning tracks, for your ears to indulge on.
