It's not often you see "disco" and "minimalism" next to the same person's name in the All Music Guide

I need to thank TMFTML for calling Arthur Russell to my attention. My copy of "Calling Out of Context" arrived this afternoon and I'm already on my second listen. It's about as experimental as a CD can get and still be delicate, melodic, and (periodically) dancefloor-friendly. It's sort of Brian Eno + Joy Division + Tim Buckley, if you can imagine. It soothes my brain after a rough night of wrestling with itemizing my deductions.
