Formal yet playful 'Magnesium Tales' is the latest from Reynols stalwart Anla Courtis.
Side A features 2 long tracks exploring of the sound sources as titled. 'Tale 1 M Strings' is a drone piece constructed from violin and other bowed instruments and 'Tale 2 M Metals' is a largely percussive piece for found metal. 'Tale 3 El Hircino', which takes up all of Side B is a roaring drone exploration of the electric guitar and amplification.
As with all of Anlas projects a sense of dadaesque joy exudes from the tracks giving the serious exploratory nature of the release a dayglo exuberance.

The culmination of months of inspired slog by Mr Sterile (Kieran Monaghan and Chrissie Butler) is an album that ranges from The Ex like rhythmic punk ecstasy to intense NZ rock outs to bliss ambience. PseudoArcana
