Exclusive stream: Roger Eno with Plumbline, “Pulling Strings” from Endless City/Concrete Garden (2013)

Share this:

Roger Eno, the romanticist brother of Brian Eno, returns to his collaboration with experimental artist Plumbline — who spent a long period before their first duo effort capturing verite sounds at intersections in New York City.

Place them together, as on 2006’s Transparencies, and you get something like avant ambiance. Same here, as Eno and Plumbline — aka Will Thomas — offer “Pulling Strings” from their forthcoming sophomore effort Endless City/Concrete Garden. Check out this exclusive advance stream, as they combine the poignant atmospherics we’ve come to expect from Eno with these itchy rhythmic contributions that can only be ascribed to Plumbline.

After all, before Transparencies, Plumbline issued Pin Points (the Big Apple traffic album) as well as Circles, which traced his journey through a sound collage from Los Angeles to New York City.

Endless City/Concrete Garden is due today, May 20, 2013, in the UK via Hydrogen Dukebox; then on July 2 in the U.S. and in Canada. (Purchase here: http://hydrogendukeboxrecords.bandcamp.com/album/endless-city-concrete-garden.) If “Pulling Strings” is any indication, Eno’s familiar minimal phrasing is in for another brilliant shakeup.
