More Info

More "enigmatic episodes from Utvaer", courtesy of Steven Stapleton and Colin Potter, whose field recordings translated into unstructured desolation are the skeleton of the whole "Shipwreck Radio" project. In this second instalment, the duo seems even less physically present than before, choosing to remain completely camouflaged in the contrasting sonic images they create; the overall sound of "Vol.2" is centred around metallic (and often pitch-transposed) resonances and distant drones, each track introduced by the voice of various participants, the whole accurately deformed, digested and thrown up by an "abstractly rigorous" effect processing. Stapleton and Potter manipulate human activity, cars, voices and animals to generate their unique paintings in which straight lines and angles are totally absent - everything sounds sinuous or parabolic. Apparently psychotic yet absolutely descriptive, these wrecking balls for mental balance find their way to our appreciation with every additional listening; furthermore, the special edition - whose price is already skyrocketing in the online auctions - contains a third CD (the above mentioned "Gulls") made of residual recordings and oddities which contribute to give NWW additional rights to be considered a cult icon on today's scene. In my opinion, this triple set - paired with the first volume which is even better - counts much more than several of their earlier overquoted albums to define this status.
