Terence Hannum Illustration on New Rahmane Tape from Utech Records

As of September 4th, you'll be able to pick up some great new releases from Utech Records including a Rahmane tape Illustrated by Terence Hannum and designed by Keith Utech.

One of the releases in the new Utech batch is something we've been waiting a long time for: the new album from The Human Quena Orchestra. We haven't heard this one yet, but we're sure it's going to make our "Best of 2010" list. If you haven't picked up the last release from The Human Quena Orchestra, then do yourself a favor and go to the Crucial Blast website and buy it!

Oh, and the Utech description for the release fails to mention some of the collaborators on the release, people like Jason Zeh and Brandon Nickell, so you know it's going to be good.


Here's the release description from Utech Records:

Rahmane > Islands of Pathos > Utech Records > C40 > URCS052
New Zealand free noise/drone figure Duncan Bruce offers an album several years in the making. Alto sax, synthesizer, percussion and field recordings are only a handful of the ingredients that make up these strange and wonderful recordings. Part edge-of-the-world noise and part multicolored island narrative. A haunting document front to back.
Olive cassette. Illustration by Terence Hannum. Edition of 100.
