Great idea this. After the release of their magnificent "Type II" album in May, they sent some tracks to musical friends for remixing as an extra activity in lockdown I reckon. The results are excellent.
Very interesting record this, and Ashley is a jazz improviser (to simplify things) that I've followed for some time. With Otto's accompaniment they have created a fine disc indeed. Recorded live at Cafe Oto in February this year, it's good that they got in ahead of the CoVid lockdown.

Another Moor Mother release, this time an EP containing three free-form pieces inspired by the writings of the same name by Rasheedah Phillips of the BQF Organisation. The work is available as a PDF with the release download.
So, so good. Laura once again completely extrapolates the ambience and deep atmospherics of her recorded environment, moving this time from her beloved cathedrals to a London Power Station. Breathtaking, as her medieval musics pierce the air, particularly her violins. Tremendous.
Fine stuff here, and yet another recommendation from Paul Gough at Pimpod.com. The A Side is a superb cover of an old Bert Jansch song, and her backing group includes Sonic Youth's former drummer Steve Shelley.
