This is the first proper vinyl release for Tim Hecker's breakthrough 2006 album. At the time of original issue, there was a small run of a few hundred vinyl copies done by a small German label, but this was pressed on an inferior sounding single LP which was much too short for the length of the album, not to mention the wide dynamic range of the recording. This new version is mastered at 45rpm over four sides for maximum sound quality. "The whole album moves with a sort of barely-contained violence that threatens to disintegrate or burst tracks into flame outs at nearly any point. it's powerful and intense ambient music that really doesn't sound like anything else being created right now."--Almost Cool
Tim Hecker - Virgins

2LP | 2013 | US | Original (Kranky)

Release:2013 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Received an 8.3 Best New Music rating from PitchforkVirgins was recorded during three periods in 2012, mostly in Reykjavik, Montreal and Seattle, using ensembles in live performance. The sound palette of this work is wider, almost 'percussive' and tighter sounding than previous works. While this album remains committed to a painterly form of musical abstraction, it is also a record of restrained composition recorded live primarily in intimate studio rooms. This record employs woodwinds, piano and synthesizers towards an effort at doing what digital music does not do naturally—making music that is out of time, out of tune and out of phase. This follow-up to his Juno-awarded Ravedeath, 1972 album exchanges gristled distortion and cavernous sound in favour of a close, airy, more defined palette. At times it points to the theological aspirations of early minimalist music. But it is not 'fake church music' for a secular age, rather something like an attempt at the sound of frankincense in slow-motion, or of a pulsing, flickering fluorescence in the grotto. Some pieces go off the rails before forming into anything, others eschew crescendo compositional structures or bombastic density while going sideways instead. It points to the ongoing development of TIM HECKER’s work. It suggests illusory memories of drughazed jams or communal music performance that may have never been performed or been heard. These are mp3s that give confusing accounts either of sound's glowing physicality or of its prismatic evasiveness. It is an offering of music into the void, a gift of digital filler between distractions. Yet hopefully it also stands as a document of the enduring faith in the narcotic, enigmatic function of music as long-form expression. Mixed by VALGEIR SIGuROSSON and Tim Hecker. Additional assistance by RANDALL DUNN and BEN FROST. Mastered by MANDY PARNELL at Black Saloon Studios in London, UK. No Export to Europe/UK or Japan.

Für die Werke des Kanadiers Tim Hecker, der als einer der wichtigsten Musiker in der E-Musik-Szene gilt,eine Schublade zu finden, gleicht einer Herausforderung. Er selbst nennt seine Ergebnisse "fake churchmusic" oder "neo metal drone". Tatsächlich verbinden seine Sounds an der Schnittstelle von Melodie,Dissonanz und Lärm so ziemlich alles, was - vielleicht? - nicht zusammengehört, aber dennoch gut klingt. Malsind das Kirchenorgeln, mal Samples von Streichern, Pianos oder elektroakustischen Komponenten, die ineine rauschend-ozeanische Klangwelt ausufern: tiefgründig, majestätisch und eine Brücke zwischen Noise,Ambient und Minimal schlagend. "Love Streams" entstand Ende 2015, nachdem sich Hecker für längere Zeitnach Los Angeles bzw. zusammen mit Johan Johanssen und Ben Frost ins isländische Greenhouse Studiozurückgezogen hatte. Das Album ist das vielleicht ambitionierteste Werk in der mittlerweile fünfzehnjährigenSchaffenszeit Heckers sowie ein konsequente Weiterentwicklung seiner Schlüsselwerke "Radio Amor","Harmony In Ultraviolet" und "Virgins", die in den Jahren ihrer Veröffentlichung sowohl von Kritikern wie auchFans jeweils in allerlei Bestenlisten gewählt wurden.
