William Basinski – A Red Score in Tile

From the awesome Drag City sublabel Streamline comes this bare-bones CD reissue of William Basinski’s 2003 vinyl-only release A Red Score in Tile. The music itself is 100% gorgeous and totally warrants the reissue – Basinski’s signature decay and development drips effortlessly onward into infinite waves of total bliss, in a supremely sophisticated way that it seems like only Basinski is capable of. It’s only a bummer that music this beautiful is being reissued as such a spare jewel-cased CD release as opposed to the full on vinyl event that albums like this deserve. Oh well – if you missed the vinyl run, as I did, then having A Red Score in Tile back in print is just a total gift.

Purchase.
