After several months under the radar Thread Pulls re-emerge to play a string of shows in the Netherlands in early September, including Incubate Festival in Tilburg. As well as their own show, Peter will join the Damo Suzuki Network alongside other musicians performing at the festival, including Dublin’s Cian Nugent.
Thread Pulls new 12” record, ‘You melt words \ 5/8 rhythm here’, will be released on 19 October 2012 on CF Records (Girls Names, Sea Pinks, Lucky Dragons, Patrick Kelleher). Recorded with legendary underground electronic music producer David Donohoe and made over a two week period in their basement city centre studio, it comprises two long-play tracks arranged specially for 12” vinyl.
It takes their sound even further into a rarified sparseness, with each paired-back sound pushed to extremes. Scattered polyrhythms and shifting time signatures move around the focus of the beat; deranged brass sounds burst from the depths of Gavin’s lungs. It was mastered by Stephen Quinn who recorded Thread Pulls 2010 album ‘New thoughts’. The 12” vinyl ( with download) is a limited pressing of 100 with special packaging including unlabelled vinyl, stamped sleeve and two glossy photographic prints.
