Review at Brainwashed by Jen Warren
excerpt re: A Liles
"The art of the sound collage and drone music has a group of key members. Mirror, Christoph Heemann, Andrew Chalk, William Basinski, and perhaps just a few more are known and loved and create music that invokes images from other worlds; be those images frightening, sublime, or esoteric, it is impossible to deny their visceral impact. Andrew Liles has been added to that list of elusive and wonderful musicians"

I have come into the musicks of Liles as of last year. I thoroughly enjoy all of the Liles I own. Strange, familiar - he plays his own instruments, except where noted and then manipulates that sound, folding in found sounds and happy accidents. One of his latest endeavors is part of Beta-lactam Ring Records Black Series. From Dec. 2006, Liles is releasing a cd a month for twelve months. Check THAT out. 15 Questions w/A. Liles
Wakeford I know of through DIJ and Sol Invictus. Don't always dig the SI, but the Wakeford/Stapleton release "Revenge Of The Selfish Shellfish" was good!. Haven't heard it in many moons. Wayyy OOP, that one.
The way in which Liles is such a good collaborator is really quietly spoken in this piece. 320.

andrew liles is great ! He's touring with Stapleton. I think I will see him at the Paris Concert.
If you have more of him (or some nww sound like "bright yellow moon", "spiral insana" or "hunder perfect mind"...)
