Raime 'Quarter Turns Over A Living Line' 2xLP
Quarter Turns Over A Living Line is the long awaited debut album by Raime. It follows the duo's self-titled 2010 EP and two subsequent 12" singles, 'If Anywhere was here we would know where we are' and 'Hennail'. Moving away from the sample-based strategies that characterised their early work, Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead have looked increasingly to live instrumentation for their first full-length work, mounting intensive recording sessions for percussion, guitar and strings before painstakingly piecing the album together at their home studio.
The gothic and industrial signifiers in their music remain, but more submerged and oblique than ever - no less pronounced as influences than jungle's rhythmic dynamism and doom metal's oppressive weight or aspects of techno, modern composition and dub. Quarter Turns Over A Living Line is the first original artist LP on Blackest Ever Black, the young London-based label that has to date released records by Tropic of Cancer, Regis, Black Rain, Pete Swanson, Cut Hands and others.
