DescriptionOn the quest for copies of Mergeï¿½s tremendously rare first album from the late 80s growing binï¿½s Basso found Jo Lienen, the head of Merge, who gave him a CDR of of an unreleased second Merge LP. Having never heard a combination of balearic Jazz and Ambient like this before, Basso decided to launch a label to release it.
The album has been recorded in studio offtime in 1994 by Jo Lienen and Harald Karla within a few weeks using guitars, various synthesizers, drum machines and samplers.
Mergeï¿½s deep and rich sound seems to be made for the indian summer days. Back to the beach, folks!
