Philip Jeck "An Ark For The Listener"

I can't recommend Philip Jeck's new CD on Touch highly enough; it's a sterling example of his craft, and quite why he's not as well-known as some of his contemporaries (Fennesz, Tim Hecker) is baffling to me. "An Ark For The Listener" is Jeck's 1st full-length since the masterful "Sand" (which ended up in The Wire magazine's top ten for that year) and this is just as nuanced and beautifully executed as that particular release; listening to it, it's hard to believe the vast spectrum of sounds contained within came from a relatively primitive setup of turntables, minidisc players, and effects pedals.
