GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ, Thursday, 15 March 2007 09:13 (twelve years ago) link

i am! when is this due out?

impudent harlot, Thursday, 15 March 2007 09:27 (twelve years ago) link

ah, they have a myspace:

We are excited to announce that Seefeel's landmark 1993 LP, 'Quique', is set to be reissued May 14, 2007 on 'Too Pure'.

'Quique (Redux Edition)' will feature two discs; the first containing the original album entirely remastered and sounding better than ever before. The second disc will contain formally unreleased tracks, alternate mixes and a few tracks that were originally relegated to obscure compilations. Here is the track listing for both discs.

Disc One
01 - Climactic Phase #3
02 - Polyfusion
03 - Industrious
04 - Imperial
05 - Plainsong
06 - Charlotte's Mouth
07 - Through You
08 - Filter Dub
09 - Signals

Disc Two

01 - Clique
02 - Is it Now?
03 - Filter Dub (Low Pass Remix)
04 - Come alive (Climactic Phase #1)
05 - Time To Find Me (Alternate Desk Mix)
06 - Charlotte's Mouth (Avant Garde Mix)
07 - My Super 20
08 - Climactic Phase #3 (Overnight Mix)
09 - Silent Pool


wondering if most of the second disc alternate mixes are from dubious-looking astralwerks compilations i never bought.

GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ, Thursday, 15 March 2007 10:05 (twelve years ago) link

I still listen to Pure/Impure & Quique on a regular basis, & it's remarkable how well Seefeel have aged. I'll wait for reports to come in before deciding to invest in this, which I would do purely for the disc 2 extras. For the uninitiated, though, this would be an excellent & comprehensive starting point.

Dorf Engulf, Thursday, 15 March 2007 11:34 (twelve years ago) link

Ooh, I had this on clear double vinyl (and therefore it is in another country and I haven't hear it in yonks) once upon a time. It would be interesting to see how they held up, whether they were as prescient as they seemed.

Masonic Boom, Thursday, 15 March 2007 11:36 (twelve years ago) link

all but three of the second disc's tracks are unreleased.

strongohulkington, Thursday, 15 March 2007 13:08 (twelve years ago) link

it's a nice enough addition.

strongohulkington, Thursday, 15 March 2007 13:08 (twelve years ago) link

Awesome news, but I'm still not sure how to pronounce it. Is it keek? Quick? Queequeg?

keek

strongohulkington, Thursday, 15 March 2007 13:35 (twelve years ago) link

Indeed. No chance of an American release I'm guessing.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 15 March 2007 14:00 (twelve years ago) link

You can hear previews of the new tracks
here.

It's going to kick ass. I still listen to Quique, More Like Space, Starethrough and Pure,Impure with a great deal of regularity also. It's just one of those records that was a revelation for me when I first heard it and was a nexus that led to so much other music. I'm still not completely positive how they made that humming guitar haze sound.

William Selman, Thursday, 15 March 2007 14:30 (twelve years ago) link

Seefeel had such potential, until they flew off the rails...(didn't Sarah Peacock wind up in an alt-country-ish band called January?)

the AFX mixes of "Time To Find Me" are still a sight for sore ears...

henry s, Thursday, 15 March 2007 17:07 (twelve years ago) link

Ok, got it. I guess it is out in N. America.

The bonus tracks are quite good. The alternate mixes aren't as good as the album/ep tracks (except for maybe the dub mix of Filter Dub) but are interesting to listen to hear how the released tracks were put together. Also, I like how they recycled the vocals from the alternate mix of Charlotte's Mouth later in Starethrough.

As far as the others go...why the hell didn't they put Clique out as a single? Almost as catchy as Plainsong, but has an amazing processed vocal that sounds not the least bit dated. Is It Now? sounds like it's going in the direction of the Warp stuff they did later. The driftier tracks are quite nice, but obviously wouldn't fit into the actual album.

So, i just picked up all the Seefeel albums...

_Quique
_Succour
_Ch-Vox

...the other day, as well as the EP collection...

_Polyfusia

...and am wondering, what's the best place to start listening to these albums? Should I go chronologically, or in some other order, and why? Also, what are the highlights of each disc, or what should I be on the lookout (listenout?) for with each one? Any other thoughts on Seefeel in general, or these albums?

Thanks, ILM.

stephen, Friday, 12 October 2007 07:45 (twelve years ago) link

The three Polyfusia releases are cheap on bleep currently - new disjecta ep, autechre remix of spangle and Clifford's new album with Kealoha(?)

http://www.bleep.com/?label=Polyfusia

stephen, choronologically, because they get weirder (and, to me, more interesting). the Ch-Vox is a lot like the Disjecta things on warp rather than Seefeely. Fracture / Tied and Starethrough EPs also essential i think.

(by which i assume you mean, those two EPs have some pretty nice exclusives, yes?)

stephen, Friday, 12 October 2007 09:14 (twelve years ago) link

yes, and are also some of the best things they've done. plus i like the cover of fracture / tied - designers republic, nice heavy orange card, silver ink, slight embossing...

oh wow! i have that Cocteaus EP, think it's pleasant enough for late Cocteaus material but i haven't given it more than a couple spins really. i had no idea some guy from Seefeel was involved either. i'll have to pull that out tomorrow, then...

thanks!

anyone else?

stephen, Friday, 12 October 2007 10:21 (twelve years ago) link

Listen to them chronologically as there is definitely a development of their sound and it can be divided into two halves: Too Pure releases and post-Too Pure releases. While the first ep (More Like Space) doesn't sound like a rock band, except for the last track, you can get a sense of rock composition from the songs. This gets thrown out the window on Plainsong when they start adding more and more layers and definitely go for a machine vibe. Quique has moments when it sounds like a rock band, but most of all it's the pinnacle of layering and density in the early sound. Imperial is one of my favorite pieces of music ever.

When they switched to Warp (you really should get Starethrough because it's fucking incredible), they started to strip back the elements so that by the time you get to Ch-Vox, it's so sparse, it's almost like listening to sonar blips. There are some fine moments on these records, but I admit I prefer the earlier ones more. Also, if you can locate it, their contributions to the Ancient Lights and the Black Core compilation on Sub Rosa are some of the highlights of their later work.

Bill in Chicago, Friday, 12 October 2007 16:09 (twelve years ago) link

What Bill said.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 12 October 2007 16:15 (twelve years ago) link

Bill, thanks, that's a fantastic summary. I'm really looking forward to these now, more so than before. I checked the 4 songs on Starethrough, doesn't look like there's any overlap with their full-lengths (or maybe 1 track, i forget). watching a copy of that on eBay right now ;-) so i'll try to snag it for a few bucks.

stephen, Friday, 12 October 2007 16:22 (twelve years ago) link

> Also, if you can locate it, their contributions to the Ancient Lights and the Black Core compilation on Sub Rosa are some of the highlights of their later work.

lots very cheap listed on amazon.com. if only i knew a tame american who could pick up a copy for me...

koogs, Friday, 12 October 2007 17:06 (twelve years ago) link

Nope, Starethrough is all non-album material. I remember buying it when it came out and wondering if it was the same band that put out Quique--it's that different from its predecessor.

Also, I highly recommend Mark Clifford's collaboration with Simon Kealoha on Clifford's Polyfusia label. Running Taper is the name. It's much more of a software-processed affair than his other work and sorta reclaims the space between Seefeel and Fennesz.

Otherwise, I think the other side projects are less than the sum of the whole band. There are a few Scala tracks that I like, but they never really did much for me. The first Disjecta album is good (because Looking for Snags sounds exactly like Dubstep circa 1995), but after that until the collaboration mentioned above, I unfortunately found Clifford's stuff hit-or-miss to completely uninteresting. If you can find it, Mark Van Hoen (their engineer aka Locust) put out a really good album in the late 90s called Playing with Time.

Bill in Chicago, Friday, 12 October 2007 18:20 (twelve years ago) link

I bought the original last week, as it was available used. I used to be a bit ambivalent about Seefeel, but damn, this album is amazing.

It makes me sad that this band isn't as widely revered as, say, The Orb. They really deserve much more praise than they get.

26 Mixes Focaccia (Stevie D), Saturday, 13 December 2008 05:39 (eleven years ago) link

You'd think there would have been primed for some serious critical re-appraisal about 5 years ago or so, when all those MBV-meets-laptronica bands like (early)M83, Ulrich Schnauss & all the Morr acts started popping up all over the place. That shit has Seefeel's fingerprints all over it.

Cat-Wrangler (Pillbox), Saturday, 13 December 2008 05:55 (eleven years ago) link

three months pass...

Haha, I was about to post here saying what Pillbox just said. I finally snagged this reissue over the weekend and hearing it now in 2009 in such a context is breathtaking. But what's interesting is that while it does predate those styles and predicts them, Quique very much is its own sound, and there's things going on almost track for track (like the astonishing bassline on "Industrious") that few of the modern bunch are either able or willing to try.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 30 March 2009 15:32 (ten years ago) link

I listened to this on Spotify and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think I'll listen to it again now.

Zayatte Mondatta (country matters), Monday, 30 March 2009 15:33 (ten years ago) link

Still prefer Ulrich Schnauss, mind. :p

Zayatte Mondatta (country matters), Monday, 30 March 2009 15:39 (ten years ago) link

This album came out right around the time I started buying CDs (instead of tapes, ya I M old) and somehow I never got around to buying it on CD or on vinyl, even though I had virtually everything else in Seefeel's catalogue on one of those formats. So basically, since all of my tapes are stashed away somewhere now, I hadn't listened to "Quique" in ages before I bought the reissue. And yeah, it was astonishing to hear it again. It sounds so fresh, novel, and unpredictable these days, which is weird because at the time a lot of people dismissed them as MBV/Cocteau Twins rip-off fetishists!

NoTimeBeforeTime, Monday, 30 March 2009 16:40 (ten years ago) link

Yeah this is a 10/10 star totally great album, unfuckwithable. I dug out the reissue last week also and listened to it and was of course blown away.

Does anyone rate the stuff that comes after Quique? I like Polyfusia well enough but haven't given much time to Ch-Vox or that other record of theirs that came later...

ilxor, Monday, 30 March 2009 18:52 (ten years ago) link

Succor remains my favorite Seefeel by a mile.... they've lost some of the shoegazing qualities, in favor of a more ambient/dub/isolationist character. One of the best things Rephlex ever released; still can't understand why this hasn't gotten a reissue.

Mebbe cuz the Seefeel guys were at one point rockers? Whereas I could never truly accept M83 as a rock act. Most of Seefeel's distinctiveness, to me, from a 2009 standpoint comes from the feeling that the boundaries between electronic music and rock are still porous.

death from abroad (lukas), Monday, 4 May 2009 19:57 (ten years ago) link

Seefeel fans, set those turntables to stun! Hot off the heels of Too Pure’s revamped reissuance of the late, lamented London quartet’s 1993 opus Quique, we are beyond thrilled to announce that we’ll bringing this outstanding release to your hi-fi as a 4-platter vinyl set early next year. This fabtabulous offering will be limited to 500 copies (100 of them blue) and brought to you in beautiful gatefold packaging. Nearly 15 years after its debut, this daring exercise in ambient glory sounds every bit as ambitious as it did then, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to rediscover this long out-of-print masterwork in fantastic wax.

That was late 2007 on a clairecords newsletter, guess it never happened.

svend, Monday, 4 May 2009 22:58 (ten years ago) link

i thought this was pronounced KEE-KAY, like the diminutive of Enrique. Thank you strongo hulkington (RIP) for educating me so i don't make a faux-pas in a hypothetical future Seafeel conversation that I may have.

I was sure it was "Keek", at least that's what I remember.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 5 May 2009 08:41 (ten years ago) link

I have been mentally pronouncing it as "kweekweh" but that is because I keep thinking it's a Latin word like "quisque" or "quoque" and it isn't. But as yet I've never had any call to talk about it out loud.

a passing spacecadet, Tuesday, 5 May 2009 10:22 (ten years ago) link

Whoops, Succour was on Warp (as the link I provided showed!). And MP3s are available on Bleep.com! Let the record show that I'm an idiot.

pshrbrn, Tuesday, 5 May 2009 11:37 (ten years ago) link

"Keek" is how reviewers were describing the pronunciation at the time...while we on the topic, how's Tricky's debut pronounced?...Max-In-Kway or Max-In-Key?...or neither?...or both?

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 8 October 2019 16:24 (two months ago) link

Doesn't sound at all live to me, sounds like Clifford thought he might put out new remixes of Spangle and Gatha. Or if they are live, they sound mostly like triggered elements of the original recordings. I'm disappointed after the wonderful new directions of the self-titled album, to see them retread the same old same old (which was thoroughly played-out by Ch-Vox, much as I hate to say it).

Super excited to see Shigeru and Iida are still in the lineup, they brought amazing power and grind to the sound. Instagram feed showed a recording session the other day - fingers crossed it's a new album, I loved the self-title as much as Succour, my favourite of the first incarnation.

Anyone else seen this tour? Very torn on whether to make the two-hour drive next week.

I haven’t listened to the S/T is awhile so I’m not sure what the exact set list was but perhaps half was Quique tracks. Ishihara is definitely the MVP-the low end dub way out in front pulling things along. I wish more bands sounded like this.

were the peel sessions availble before (other than taped off the radio at the time)? they've been released as part of the huge warp box, but are also available separately (digital only?)

Figured this revive had to do with the show last night. Anyway, they were great! Seemed extremely shy but the tunes themselves were hypnotic.

I wish I went a couple of days ago but sometimes it's really cold out and you just need to sleep. How loud was it?

Pretty loud, but not piercing. Total brain massaging goodness.

i saw them at that empty bottle show! they were great, but to be honest the sound system at the bottle was not quite up to the task. not usually a big deal with a lot of shows there, but a big part of seefeel's appeal (for me at least) is the wonderful quality of the sound that they create, so hearing it (unintentionally) distorted was less than ideal. don't get me wrong, though - they ruled. :)

Only hiccup last night was something not working in the guitar rig on one song, but we wouldn't have noticed if it weren't for him shrugging at the sound guy after twisting knobs on the amp.

Chicago show was great. Definitely not too dynamic on stage but my eyes were closed half the time anyway. Massive basslines a la the Orb maybe, incredible control over endlessly permutating waves of feedback. I'd love to see the signal chain on the guitars, keys, vox. The entire show was nearly seamless. Highly recommended.
