Editions Mego to Release Another Mark Fell Album This Year

It was just the beginning of this week when we first caught wind of a new album coming from Mark Fell (of SND) on December 7 via Raster-Noton, but now, we've discovered a second record bearing Fell's name ready to drop the following week through Editions Mego. The label—which is also home to other electronic experimentalists like Oneohtrix Point Never and Emeralds—will release UL8, a 20-track excursion into Fell's world of immaculately rendered audio studies (a.k.a. brain-twisting minimalist tracks), on December 15. UL8's title comes from a specific kind of Celestion speaker that the sound artist first came to love as a child. Shares Fell, "Finally, my brother gave in to [my] demands, and let me have the speakers, which now sit in my front room. Although these are of little use in a studio context, they still provide an adequate and often rewarding listening experience. The tracks here replicate the simple monosynth and drum-machine equation [used in my early production days]; and have, to a large extent, been made with and for the UL8." You can get into the forthcoming album's nitty-gritty details (there's a bunch), and check out its first track, here. The album artwork and tracklist are below.
