Counterfeit Mars by Laubrock Tom Rainey now out on Relative Pitch Records

Counterfeit Mars by Laubrock Tom Rainey now out on Relative Pitch Records

Counterfeit Mars by Tom Rainey and myself is officially out now on Relative Pitch Records! Please visit my Bandcamp to listen or to purchase a copy! 

About the record: Early in 2020 as the pandemic was forcing us to isolate from our friends and live performing, we began a weekly series of duets which we called “Stir Crazy”. For over a year, we offered these home recordings free of charge on Bandcamp as a way to stay connected to our supporters and to continue developing new music. After 60 episodes we retired the series to begin preparing for our next studio recording "Counterfeit Mars".

This record is the culmination of that year of uncertainty, isolation and concentrated duo explorations. The music combines compositions as well as improvisations and hopefully conveys our deepened connection to both.

from the liner notes by Kevin LeGendre

For the third installment of Ingrid Laubrock's duo series on Intakt (following Kasumi with Aki Takase and Blood Moon with Kris Davis) Ingrid Laubrock and Andy Milne develop their own sounds in a common sound world. Fragile is characterized by the great empathy that unites these two artists. The music, which is both stirring and soothing, confident and intuitive, is deeply expressive and inventive. “Laubrock’s growth as an original writer and improviser has been marked in the last two decades, during which time she has led several bands, notably Sleepthief and Anti-House, and proved adept at creating for large ensembles and small groups that revealed her own individuality, mostly within avant-garde traditions. As for Milne he has more than fulfilled the promise he showed as a member of Steve Coleman’s Metrics in the early ‘90s. The Laubrock-Milne duo has a balance between the drive and momentum of large ensembles and the stillness and engagement with silence and space of smaller groups. Making music that releases a form of energy, something that pulses with life, while also drawing down into intimacy, suggesting feelings of tenderness or uncertainty, is no mean feat”
