Various Artists – Recovery

Author: Colin | Published: 7/9/08








Artist: Various including snd, Fennesz, Momus, Ryoji Ikeda, Mika Vanio and Alva Noto
Title: Recovery
Label: Fractured Recordings
Year: 2008
Designer: Graham Dolphin
Type of music: Electronica meets pop in a dark alley with a crowbar

Notes: Who could resist this project? Kamal Ackarie approached 25 premiere electronic artists to cover a song from the past that held personal significance for them. The invitation resulted in (deep breath) Ryoji Ikeda covering Back In Black by AC/DC, Mika Vainio doing Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill, People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz doing Mull of Kintyre, snd covering Billie Jean and many more. Check the sound samples on the project’s website. Design-wise, the 10 7″ singles are housed in an attractive box, but the charm particularly comes from the vinyl itself and Graham Dolphin’s playful redrawing of the original labels. This is the first release on Fractured Recordings, I’ll be interested to see what they come up with next. It’s a limited edition of 500 copies, so walk don’t run to the Fractured Recordings website to order a copy.

Oh and special mention to whoever did the packing, it’s like a charming, rough and ready version of Apple’s approach, see pics below. Many thanks to Hannah for supplying this review copy.
