BRENDAN EDER ENSEMBLE X MEENA YSANNE – “VULNERABILITY (POPULARITY CONTEST REMIX)”

The Brendan Eder Ensemble recorded a brilliant neo-classical cover of Apex Twin’s #20 from his Selected Ambient Works. He is back with a gentle, looping composition that marries 20th century American Romanticism with the sea-sick lurch of Hip-Hop influenced sampling and production. Meena Ysanne (Smashing Pumpkins) contributes sweeping cello sustaining the melody through the chopped chopped flow. “Vulnerability” reminds me of two projects from my older blogging days that may not have a ton of relevancy anymore – but in it I hear Helado Negro’s one-off project Epstein project (boy that didn’t age well) and GHIBLI’s plunderphonic album Pythia.
