Pecking at Borders with Corvo Records

Corvo Records‘ mission is best expressed by the label’s animated logo: a black vinyl disc blinking beside a record player’s arm. As Corvo’s owner Wendelin Büchler explains, the icon shares the profile of a black-faced bird (in Italian, corvo means crow):

James A. McDermid ~ Tonal Glints

Michel Banabila ~ Just Above the Surface

The title is an inversion of expectations; we’re used to reading the words, “just below the surface.”  Sound artist Michel Banabila has been defying classifications for years, and here he does so once again.  The irony is that while the attention is drawn to

Ljerke ~ Ljerke

For years, many assumed that the Frisian words of Jan Kleefstra were untranslatable, but their mystery is the key to their appeal.  The Kleefstra brothers have been enchanting audiences for years by pairing intriguing textures with solemn poetry.  On this
