Review

In the four years which have elapsed since 'Loop Finding Jazz Records' first shuffled out of his ambrosially dusty speakers, Jan Jelinek has been collaborating with Antiopdean jazz-monkeys Triosk, converting his lint-like sound into a live proposition through The Exposures and releasing a royal flush of solo LP's which culminated in this year's delicious 'Kosmischer Pitch'. Yet for all these undoubted achievements, Jelinek's crowning glory stoically remains 'Loop Finding Jazz Records'; a situation we can't see changing any time soon. As far as albatrosses go, it ain't a bad one to have around your neck. Whilst it's all too easy to over-intellectualise the output of artists such as Jelinek, a simple fact tends to shine through the adjective heavy prose; it sounds utterly fantastic. Taking what reads like a pretty austere set of ingredients, Jelinek's technique revolves around a trilogy of elements which consists of second long cuts of 1960s-70s jazz recordings, the loop-finding modulation wheel (do your homework!) and the Moiré effect; albeit rendered in the acoustic as opposed to the image and spectral domains. If all this sounds like unbridled 'ball-ache maximus' to you, be assured that on record it is anything but; as crumbling edifices of mealy rhythms slowly pulse into life and swirl around your head like snow storms clashing with a dust devil. Taking sediments of fathom deep static then skimming the best stuff from the top, Jelinek opens through the dampened echoes of 'Moiré (piano & organ); wherein a slow-motion thrum of spiraling clicks, rustles and analogue tones conspire to give the impression of recondite perspectives that extend well beyond the constituent elements. Elsewhere, 'Rocky In The Video Age' instills a gratuitously optimistic blush to the aquatic micro-sound ebb, 'Moiré (Strings)' is a perfect companion to Basinski's disintegrating tape archive, whilst 'Them, Their' represents an aural crease so slight you can only catch its distinctive gleam from the corner of your eye. Inventive, intelligent and utterly invigorating, 'Loop Finding Jazz Records' is a genuine modern classic whose re-release is anything but a cynical mortgage repayment exercise. Consider this a second chance, then pretend you had it all along.
