The Absolute Sound (TAS) List! Special Merit: Singles & EPs!
Sonar / The Bill Laswell Mix Translations 12" single
Two tracks from the acclaimed Vortex album, mixed and reconstructed!
The Swiss quartet Sonar is joined by guitarist David Torn and legendary producer, remixer and bass guitarist Bill Laswell.
Sonar has an international reputation for creating a unique blend of forward-thinking instrumental music imbued with power, tension and emotional identity. For their internationally acclaimed fourth album Vortex, Sonar made an unexpected move by adding the wildly experimental, but still deeply emotional playing of David Torn to their precise and disciplined polyrhythmic groove tapestry, thus adding the yin to their yang. For this new vinyl release Bill Laswell has mixed and reconstructed two tracks from Vortex, also adding electronics and his signature bass guitar. Side A: "Votex (Bill Laswell Mix Translation) and Side B: Monolith (Bill Laswell Mix Translation). Now a part of the TAS List: Special Merit: Singles & EPs! TAS' Super LP List contains every LP that reviewer Harry Pearson recommended when the list was last published by him. It also contains hundreds of titles that the TAS staff have deemed worthy of adding.
