We kick off 2012 in style with an EP from Frank Haag - Amsterdam’s diamond in the rough and undoubtedly one of the artists to watch very closely this year. Readers of our blog will be fa- miliar with the name; last year his ‘Tales of the Burning Range Rovers’ EP on Serialism made a strong impression on me, and I wrote about it here. That was his only EP in 2011, and The Verdict is the first of Haag’s releases since then.
Clearly, it’s quality over quantity for this genuine sound artist with a background in musique concrète and academic sonology. With two superb tracks that complement each other this is already a rock solid EP. Add a rare remix by the unrivaled Konrad Black and you’ve got one of the most compelling releases of early 2012.
