Francis Plagne // Rural Objects LP

¥ 2,730
  • Availability:

The British Horn of Plenty has reissued the album, which was released only digitally by the Australian / Melbourne multi-instrument Francis Plagne released by Penultimate Press and Black Truffle, with the addition of two unreleased songs. Contains 2 simple yet tasty songs recorded on an 8-track MTR.Poster included.

Recorded in the quiet confines of Plagne's suburban studio on 8-track cassette, Rural Objects presents twelve short instrumental tracks – ranging in length from less than one minute to just over five – layering guitars, fretless bass, organ, keyboards, flute, ocarina, hand percussion, drum machine, zither and rubber bands (with a guest appearance from long-time friend and collaborator Joe Talia on drums on one piece). Titled after a poem by John Ashbery, Rural Objects wanders unpredictably from form to formlessness and from melody to abstraction, all enveloped in warm glow of tape hiss. Bubbling and calm, Plagne's work summons a sense of the possibility of unhurried solo exploration, inviting the listener into a lushly idiosyncratic sound-world that touches on amateur prog, early Weather Report, Dominique Lawarlée, and Deux Filles.
