Up for pre-order is the new album by Jim O'Rourke, most known for being part of the legendary Sonic Youth, but also a contributing musician for Wilco, Smog, Thurston Moore, Merzbow, Fennesz, etc. Drag City comments: "The Visitor’ is a seriously all-Jim O’Rourke affair - allthe sounds you hear are Jim and Jim alone. This timeyou can’t blame any of those session dudes and theirbloodless line readings - the chill you’re getting is a onehundredpercent O’Rourke effect. As a matter of fact, itmight be more like two hundred percent — some of ‘TheVisitor’ is tracked so deep, it took two hundred tracks tohold it all. It doesn’t sound like it though - to Jim’scredit, the mix sounds very minimal, very straightforward- not like several hundred tracks at all."
The new album is supposed to be more instrumental compared to his previous releases, and there's only one track on it, so get ready for it. No pre-orders at Drag City themselves yet, but you can get one GBP 11,79 at Normanrecords.com/
