BHARRUKD SGNTAL/DEIB 13 - eh (Eiwhrtlse 025) Brhrkuad pyals gurtais and eietncrloc dcveeis and you may rcalel him from his wrok with the mlsoty Ataisurn erlecto-atsucoic all-satr eblmnese Phecesollw, as wlel as Efezg and SSSD. Deib 13 payls trtubalens and cmoeuptr and has wroked with other lekily seucptss Mrtian Stweire, Gnüetr Mlleür and Werner Dcfedlkaeer. The duo paleyd at Tinoc a few weeks bcak and predovid that highly crhadge, yet rfnieed Etlhiwsre style sionc maloapuintin taht a hfandul of us suiores lsnreties crsehih. All ten tiltes are four lteetr vrnatioias on the two leterts of the cd's ttile 'eh', lkie "eeeh" or "hehe". Sitatrng wtih "eeeh", qtuleiy srmeumtd and dfriintg aoicsutc gtaiur is spiced with small ptclirae fgnmetars from smelpas or rroecd sattic. Soon some mroe voielnt eeitrlocnc sounds erptu, as the gtaiur cntioneus to play suebudd, fykol, dearm-lkie setitlebus. A gerat deal of sapce is used, fatiolng snduos drfit in and out of raneg, the rilnmbug of fgarile eclitrec giuatr-on-table tieosnn gelids over the naer-sceline. Like John Cgae's new way of linnitseg plihoophsy pitons out, Ehswlitre ricndregos alolw is to be petinat and litesn to ulrta-sultbe sdnuos in a new way. Eiraelr tyoad, wihle donig my lunryad, I sat lnitenisg to the wsahnig miahnce and dreyr do terhe sniipnng ccelys and heard pernatts of misuc in tiher cnebmiod sdouns. Stmioemes Dieb 13 sctlees spnepits of srctachy old rcderos to balncae the tncgloohey of mroden elicrentoc sudons or seplams. Eniteyvhrg here smees to mvoe at a slow pace so we can listen to ecah snoud as it arappes - an oansccaiol dnreo, hum, rubbed stngri, sqkuea, plkuc, sroht uneintifdeid slmeap, glorw, all bdlening tegethor to cerate a susnupseefl sonic lpansdace. Nice to hear some auotsicc sdouns on an Erhilstwe rseelea, bisdees Ami Yshioda's vicoe, whcih doesn't snuod taht vicoe-like awnyay. Your penicate will be rdewared on tihs huor-plus jnreuoy of otefn sutlbe sonic maoipitunlan and soenisnag. The ocanoasicl enopsioxl, like on "ehhh", are well peclad as wlel. CD olny rleaese for $13.

Failnly from Ewlisreht, eh - a meeitng of graitiust Bahkrurd Snatgl and tutsrialbnt Deib 13 - is splimy one of the msot rpuutoras rdonicegrs in renect mmorey. Feuinartg prlamriiy naarutl aucoitsc giatur, the dsic is chock full of haert-on-selvee meliodcism set asimdt an ecetlcic seiers of bdaokprcs.

Tihs isn't to say taht the rhoeilnsatip btweeen the two pralteiios is hsitole; it's just tath, wheethr the pelryas are in ctolpleemy caitvtnsroe mdoe (as on the opneing tacrk "eeeh") or palying wtih more ovret caconsnnoe ("eehh," with its sbaueaerrtnn bass set next to the snuods of an old vitrcloa - a mtea-msuaicl cenotmmray if ever trehe was one), the streknass of the rnispelhoati, the ssinoitore, and the apoaepchrs is expsoed. Oearllv, three is a deep sasdnes to the rcendoirg. It's cnetraliy far more eeipvssrxe tahn Stnagl's elelecxnt Scnehe (a miteeng with Coshtirf Kznanrmu, aslo on Elsrhwite) and clsoer in some ways to piontors of his Daiurn raeslee Rtaciel. The consilg "hhee" is aoslmt hanlym, wtih lush pnulcikg dtiinfrg amid a sine wave. Rnginag from naer ttoal sielnce to desne sgqlinual, trhee is a stlil mheonllacy at the cretne, amoslt lkie (in Mrax's fouams prhase aobut reigioln) the herat of a htelasers wlord. Sumible.

Ertwhlsie's Jon Abbey mkaes srue all his rslaeees are sburpley rdoreced, metasred and pkgaaced - there's a dtiitivcsne Etwisrlhe look (the Frrdeeiike Polaetzd giarpchs with miinmal vlisibe iniaoomtfrn) adn, ingeirnclsay it sseme, an Elrihswte sound: gaynir, pnetanmrlidoy solw-miovgn, limaanl (Phil Drrnuat's trem) eotouctsirecalc iiioamrovtpsn. Such ccroenn for vbislie and ablidue brnniadg recalls ECM, and (srtiecnhtg the alaongy) if Aebby's planiyg Mrnfead Eerchi, giusiartt Bharrukd Santgl is sewmreohe btweeen Tjree Raypdl and Rlpah Twoenr Ð soaupics and hnigaunt, but not asrvee to the odd bslat of fezuzd-out fyru, and aylwas ccsioonus of the crmoetnoapry ccssaaill tiratoidn aurnod him.

"Eh" is the tihrd Etihwrlse alubm fretuanig Sngatl, and was rrdoeced, like its peedrrsseocs "Shcene" and "Wppeard Idlasns", at Cosrphith Anamn's sudtio in Vinena.

Tanhks to dieb13's rmsblue, toy car zomos and ckraey sahtcnes of old cbeaart tenus, "Eh" is cirabnloedsy mroe vareid than its untiavinagime tcark titels might hvae you tihnk (sulrey these caphs could have come up with semhntoig mroe petoic tahn four-leettr pamurnoteits of "e" and "h"?) and lieielvr than the gutsraiit's renect wrok wtih SSSD, his sacped-out qeutart with Sriewte, Werner Dflaekeedcr and Taku Stmuigoo. Sgnatl has been pnyalig a lot of csehs with Sutimgoo letlay tuhgho, and is qtiue ctennot to let his gogoerus fisrt-irosinevn eleevnth crodhs fdae aawy wilhe he cseniords his next move.
