AJ010- due out 10/05/19
The extensive new record ‘Café Kotti’ by Nick Klein & Wilted Woman arrives on Alien Jams as the first collaborative release from the duo. Recorded in one session, the 50 minute piece is the culmination of a long working relationship between the two artists. Berlin-based Wilted Woman - who previously released her ‘Home Listener’ EP on Alien Jams - collates her signature analogue electronics and glitch-ridden intricacies to the new explorative piece. Pairing up with Brooklyn artist and Primitive Languages co-founder Nick Klein (L.I.E.S., Alter, BANK Records), ‘Café Kotti’ was recorded during the performance ‘Program: Etc.’, an exhibition by Domingo Castillo on November 10, 2018 in Berlin. Broken up into two parts, the haunting A-side skews eerily under-surface melodies that interlace with feedback, winding loops and noise, whilst the B-side teases in dark rhythmic patterns and pulsating synths to create an intriguing atmosphere. As a result of the exhibition, the collaboration explores various themes:
PROGRAM: REALITY, MONKEY, METABOLIC, SCHISM, SURFACE, SCRIPT, EYE, MODEL, DYNAMIC, MANDARIN, IMAGE, DITHER, CIGARETTE, DISPOSSESSION, SCREEN, MALADY, REJECTION, PANDEMONIUM, JUICE, EQUILIBRIUM, ETC.
