Hedgehog, Not Fox

 

My internet friends (though I have shaken Andy Lee’s hand) at the Irritable Hedgehog label are discounting most of the catalogue for the next month. If you’re not familiar with this (essentially two-man) operation, they specialize—but are not exclusive to—in lesser-known musical minimal and post-minimal composers, and have issued a number of top-notch recordings.

The markdowns are on CDs, which are now the same cost as digital downloads (and the advantage of buying through Bandcamp is that you get an immediate digital download while you wait for your CDs to come). The only thing not on sale is the majestic boxed set recording of Dennis Johnson’s November, but that leaves plenty of terrific music. My personal recommendations are:

Adrian Knight: Obsessions

 

Jürg Frey: Piano Music

 

Dave Seidel: ~60 Hz

 

William Duckworth: The Time Curve Preludes

 

While you’re checking out their list, grab a free download of recording of a recent concert by the Ensemble of Irreproducible Outcomes. Just go to this link:

and use the code: a3n7–5usz

Just order by January 1. Enjoy.

  1. Irritable Hedgehog has to be the best music label name I have ever heard. Three cheers for music labels that stay true to their artistic purpose.
