A new album is here; a great one.






DiN44 | 2014 | First pressing 1,000 copies | V2 pressing unlimited

Synth supergroup Node return with their first new release since 1995! “Node 2” features three of the original members, maverick producer and sonic legend Flood, renowned producer and composer Ed Buller and classically trained Doctor of music Dave Bessell. The band are joined by new member, Hollywood composer Mel Wesson, who has most recently provided the soundscapes for Hans Zimmer’s run of blockbuster films. This extraordinary collective take time out from their high flying day jobs to indulge their secret passion for all things analogue. The result, “Node 2”, is the culmination of two recording sessions that took place over the last year and a half at Battery studios in London.

Featuring what is quite possibly the largest collection of vintage analogue equipment that has been assembled in a studio in recent times, this quartet drag their favoured analogue tools, crackling and bleeping into the 21st century. Staying true to their roots the band improvised everything live and recorded straight to two track. The final result is edited down from the mass of material that was recorded but is otherwise presented as it was played, without the computer tidying up or overdubbing that has become part & parcel of most contemporary recordings.

The resulting nine tracks range from the classic Berlin sequencing of Shinkansen East and West to the moody introspection of Dark Beneath The Earth. Along the way we are served up such unclassifiable treats as March Méchanique, which mixes martial rhythms with Arabic flavours and subtle sequencing, or the extraordinary No Signal which pushes sonic boundaries, mixing custom written physical modelling software with analogue microtones.

Don’t miss this increasingly rare chance to hear what these legendary machines can do in the hands of experts. Presented with an extensive accompanying booklet that contains fascinating insights into the recording sessions and working methods “Node 2” is another must have release on the DiN label.

Node merchandise (t-shirts, mugs, bags etc) available from node.dizzyjam.com

Don't know what happened with the original evaluation for these guys - they were certainly never added.  Ermm 
PE 'progarchives style' is a strange sub to get to grips with for a non-expert such as myself, but this band sure as Hell sounds the part from my own (somewhat limited) understanding of what is required to gain approval.

Thanks for the update Chris.  Thumbs Up
 
Philippe (or Alex) will probably find all that they need (and then some) in Svetonio's bandcamp info posted today, coupled with the sound on sound link he gave in his o.p., which is an extensive interview with two members of the band from 1995: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1995_articles/dec95/node.html, and his Nine Inch Nails forum link which includes a short but concise press release: http://forum.nin.com/bb/read.php?30,1288289.
 
"Analogue Synth masters Node are set to return in 2012 after a 15 year break with a brand new album. The group are made up of world famous producers Flood and Ed Buller, who between them have worked with the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Pulp, U2 and Suede. Alongside them is acclaimed musician and composer Dave Bessell who has worked on a number of high profile Electronic, Classical and Rock projects and is currently lecturing at Plymouth University.

The group will release their first album in over 15 years, following up from their self titled debut album in 1996. It will be released via a Pledge Music campaign where fans can fund the recording and manufacturing of the album by purchasing exclusive content and experiences such as one on one tutorials with Node members, an exclusive live studio performance to be filmed for a DVD and a Q&A session with the band."
 
Edit: An image which might be suitable for a band pic if a better one can't be found is this one: http://secretkillerofnames.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/node-node-2-din44-nodebandlaptops.jpg.
 
 
But they could always be contacted via facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nodesynth - where the above image is currently used as their cover photo.
