Woah.  Japanese store and label Art Into Life dip into the highly collectable private archive of influential Swiss artist Dieter Roth with a tasteful reissue of the most beautiful solo piano albums we’ve ever encountered.

Longgg considered a white whale amongst collectors, next to nothing about the mystery artist Colette Roper is known, 1979 release Piano Pieces was all they left us with, fuelling the ultimate enigma and an insatiable urge to discover more.  Did she even exist at all?  The four untitled tracks present a minimalistic playing style, somewhat improvised and skewed, dripping with melancholy and ferric tape hiss.  The most private recordings, cloistered away in a world of unknowns.  The perfect record.  (Mint / New - with DL)
