Various Artists : "The Fall Will Probably Kill You" (BS012 - 2010)

Over the course of fifteen tracks and a fraction over an hour, we're treated to all sorts of avant-garde noodling, from the avant-jazz electronica of Rhizottome to the warped world / glitchtronica of Whizz Kid: if you're looking for something far beyond the realms of the ordinary, this compilation comes highly recommended. Yes, it's business as usual at Bearsuit, purveyors of brilliantly off-beat and experimental music. they’ve done it again, releasing another album of consistent quality that's wilfully perverse and staunchly uncommercial, and all the better for it.

Moments of great individualism and skewed pop brilliance arrive in the form of Belgium/Scotland partnership Whizz Kid, Scotland’s Forofo. Bearsuit have assembled a roster of talent who want to do something different. In these times of imitations and revivals, they should be applauded for that.
[Leonard’s Lair]

Il sampler si mantiene su standard molto buoni: si va dal folk della traccia di apertura di Alyosha Het ai serialismi di Rhizottome, lo-fi pop delirante al minimalismo giocattoloso di Whizz Kid, dalle strane composizioni di Forofo alle varie collaborazioni fra elettronica e melodie ubriache di PNDC e poi gli artisti già citati ed altri, che come dicevo si mantengono su un buonissimo livello.

"Synovie" by a duo called Rhizottome - I think this is rather brilliant!
[and] "Nobody Plays Baseball Here" by Harold Nono & Hidekazu Wakabayashi. Both of those splendid tracks you can find on a compilation called "The Fall Will Probably Kill You" - and splendid it is too!
[Stuart Maconie "Freak Zone" - BBC6 Music]

Top marks go to the PNDC/Housework/Shadowlike collaboration “Pilots” with honourable mentions going to Whizz Kid’s “Falling Out Of Trees, Falling Down Hills” and Jimmy Rosso’s “End”.

Love this LP!
[Phil Vickery - In-Tune, BCFM]

Nova kompilacija škotskog Bearsuit Records uz nekoliko već poznatih imena donosi mnogo svježih i relativno nepoznatih izvođača iz oblasti fine eksperimentalne, elektronske, pop, ambijentalne i neo-klasične glazbe. Kompilacija je objavljena 8.X 2010., te je svakako interesantna pogotovo ljubiteljima moderne glazbe koja podjednako provlači pop, eksperimente i neo-klasičnu glazbu. Aduti ove zbirke su svakako francuski dvojac Rhizottome i američki umjetnik Jimmy Rosso.
