The Wire Praises Yann Novak

Posted by on October 31 at 15:41 PM

Seattle laptop producer Yann Novak’s album Fade Dis/Appearances received a positive review from Chris Sharp in The Wire’s October 2005 issue (see page 69; the review isn’t online). It’s quite a feat for a release on a tiny label such as Novak’s Dragon’s Eye to get ink in the highly respected U.K. magazine. Sharp compared one track to Gavin Bryars and deemed the disc “an assured and distinctive success.” Congratulations to this promising recording artist whose label is becoming a fecund source of challenging abstract electronica.
