What Boomkat says about Golden Solitude:
“Ritornell is the duo of Richard Eigner and Roman Gerold, two Austrian
composers from specialising in different yet wholly complimentary
disciplines. Gerold is a trained jazz pianist whereas Eigner has
established himself as a sound artist, having also contributed some drums
to Patrick Wolf’s last album, Magic Position. Golden Solitude - the duo’s
debut album - arrives with a following that includes avant-techno maven
Cristian Vogel and underground Canadian director Bruce LaBruce, who used a
track from the album on his latest film Otto, or, Up With Dead People. The
music that makes up Golden Solitude combines lavish electronics (working
with both beats and more esoteric textures) with more naturalistic jazz
combo aesthetics, embracing meticulously recorded acoustic drums, bass and
horns without being too reverent. ‘Catch & Kiss’ is content to shatter the
source material into glitches and stutters, just about preserving the
rich, smokey instrumental timbres whilst ensuring a shock of modernity
runs throughout the piece. While comparisons to groups like Dictaphone
seem fairly natural, the film noir qualities of ‘Dissapearing City’ takes
Ritornell into knowingly loungey territory, only to be hastily subverted
by granular sound collages like ‘Naked’ and the piano-based micro-drone of
the Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto-alike ‘Nina’. Recommended.”

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!
