THE WORKSHOP FOR THE RESTORATION OF UNFELT FEELINGS (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp D26.10.17
juris boiko (1954-2002) and hardijs ledinš (1955-2004) were the core members of the nsrd, which is best known as latvian avant-garde, postmodern, experimental and underground music group active in 1980s.
their activities were widely multidisciplinary and they can not be considered as purely musicians since none of them had a professional musical education. their creativity was manifested through variety of media – music, performance and action art, visual arts, poetry, samizdat, the introduction video art in latvia etc. nsrd also made a significant contribution to the explanation of the theoretical aspects of art in the interpretation of the postmodernist movement, and developed the independent concept of “approximate art”. at the end of the 80s, nsrd got connected and performed with several artists and musicians living in west germany, including indulis bilzē,,,,,ns, micky remann and maximilian lenz aka westbam and others.
the vinyl release includes a download code.

theo conard, also known as paxton fettel delivers his second lp on greta cottage workshop. entirely produced by mr fettel its an exemplary mix of predominantly instrumental contemporary jazz funk, sometimes featuring the vocal talents of one olivia lincoln.. from the very beginning it is totally and utterly heartfelt - until the floor churning and brazenly life affirming end his emotions are worn firmly on his sleeve. its a serious embodiment of proper fusion and a testament to a phenomenal producer progressively pushing his work in a playful, honest, admirable and honourable way whilst not taking himself too seriously!
the return of wasserfall to the workshop brings a bunch of well-informed, beautifully executed & idiosyncratic tunes that represent our man so well. charlie, the opener is kind of oddball, jazzed out, abstract house with a strange charlie parker homage. stoned mumbles murk around ideally tuned rimshots and double bass flecks that cheekily plod about sounding like a stumbling one man band.
