The Morrison-sounding vocals, the smooth grooves If you're into this genre, just buy their discography in one shot - you won't be disappointed.
Every album is gold. Rudolf Nisbeth. Cosmos Terros by Mt. Epic Australian space psych rock with an eastern twist, purchased this epic album as soon as i heard it on vinyl, if you like Black Angels then you will love this band from West Oz Volcano Vinyl. Minimal Surface by Thee Reps. The long-running NYC group's full-length debut explores the various guises of minimalism in music, from Krautrock to post-rock. Night Lands by Dead Sea Apes. Simplicity is what drives these guys.
I love the flow of the music, no strict structure, just music flowing. Explore music. Anthony Dickie. Sympathy Nervous reissue LP.
Produced in his Tokyo living room, Niinuma built his own synthesizers and speakers from scratch to create these 'intense proto-techno soundscapes. Superior Viaduct US. Totsuka No Tsurugi 12". Sacred Bones US. On "Animated Violence Mild", his first full-length for Thrill (Album Edit) - Fenin - Grounded (Vinyl years, Thrill (Album Edit) - Fenin - Grounded (Vinyl has decided to take a far more dystopian path, blending ear-catching, synth-pop influenced melodies with thrusting, doom-laden techno rhythms, growling aural textures, LP), industrial strength noise and hybrid electronic power-pop.
It explores similar sonic territory to its predecessors, offering claustrophobic, mind-mangling soundscapes that are creepy, disturbed, awe-inspiring and sonically challenging in equal measures.
In some ways, calling out individual tracks as highlights seems pointless: this is a singular, ever-changing work that sees Chardiet escort us on a nightmarish journey through experimental extremes. Embryo 12". Stroboscopic Artefacts Germany. The Trilogy Tapes. We've loved the producer's mystique, which he has retained since day 1, because it is representative of a true artist and musician, evolving new ideas while remaining grounded in a particular aesthetic that is personal to him.
In fact, it is the most relevant depiction of techno, or LP) warehouse music, that we have heard this year, shifting and morphing endlessly, going from the regular to the utterly insane with pure ease. Sludgy beats, eerie atmospherics, and Mosse's intricate percussion patterns form a beautifully dark variety of noise music. Recommended, as per usual.
Planet Fear limited splattered vinyl LP. Cleopatra US. Appreciation red vinyl LP limited to copies. World In Action 12". Risveglio gatefold 2xLP. Hospital Productions US. For this follow-up, he's expanded his toolbox a little, supplementing those hardware pieces with two further machines: a Roland TR and TB Musically, Risveglio inhabits a similar space to its predecessor, with Cortini creating blurry, fluid dreamscapes built around semi-rhythmic loops, distorted chords and fuzzy ambient textures.
Listeners may struggle to spot the TB - most often used to create ragged waves of intense electronics - such is the unique way in which Cortini manipulates it. Regardless, the Italian's post-industrial, half-awake soundscapes are thoroughly mesmerizing.
Big Deal 12". It was only a matter of time before label head Ron Morelli picked them up, and he's done so in fine style. A monumental tune. A great release from LIES, and a fresh addition to their more usual house and techno onslaught. LP) he makes his debut for Ron Morelli's esteemed L. S imprint with a first full-length under his own name. While still as fuzzy, lo-fi and out-there as its predecessors, "Fernando" is a surprisingly melodious and tuneful affair, with Seixlack wrapping glistening - if distorted and pixilated - guitars and trippy synthesizer motifs around bustling machine beats and wayward electronic percussion.
At times it touches on electro, at others IDM and more experimental, abstract pursuits; throughout, the album remains both hugely entertaining and pleasingly atmospheric. The Rust remastered gatefold 2xLP. Game Of Chance 12". Unknowns limited LP. Here presented on vinyl for the first time, it sees the prolific Fenrow join forces with Skin Crime man Patrick O'Neill Hanged Man's Orgasm was an alias he used in the late '80s and early '90swriter Scott Bryan Wilson and synthesizer player and all round studio don Kris Lapke.
There are two minute plus epics to enjoy, both of which mix dystopian noise and heavily processed samples with skewed synthesizer parts, '90s modem noises and barely audible excerpts of the ever entertaining Fenrow reading Wilson's expressive prose.
For the record, it's the B-side cut that's the most apocalyptic. For want of a better term, this is music for dystopian dancehalls, prorogued parliaments and the children of broken societies.
Hope gram vinyl LP. Platform The visionary London industrial agitators were on vital form on "Hope", which came out midway throughand now Rude 66 has remastered the music for fresh ears.
The mood is persistently murky, but it moves from danceable anti-funk to gutter-dwelling noise baths and atmospheric sonic totems. At once mystical and incisive, otherworldly and grittily real, this is another brilliant reframing of one of the UK's true industrial titans. Play Neutral cassette. Daniel HOLT. Daniel Holt 12" 1 per customer. Babe Beer Bar Car compiles Folden's work between andpreviously only available on cassette format. Various greyscale experiments in minimalist electronics await you here: from the seething and saturated slow motion pulsations of "Somewhere In Miami" or "So Sue Me" to evocative ambient textures like "Loudmouth" or Zip It".
There's even moments of what could even be considered IDM ish! Kuwaiti Airforce 2xLP. Out Bloody Intro 9. Out Bloody Rageous, Part 1 Drifting White Life On Bridges Fourteen Hour Dream Night Sky Extra bonus tracks on LP release: Only When Green Collared Man Ground Lift Alternative Take Just Add Hock SDS Round The Corner With a release under the original moniker, one would expect this to be an announcement of sorts of some type of reunion album that finds the original members of the classic period getting back together to reclaim their jazzy rock ingenuity of the past.
Of course, i'm not really sure if a "classic" lineup has actually ever been established with this band since it seems like every album, studio and live, sports a different lineup as musicians flowed through the band like a never-ending river however personally i would assume that it would include any of the members from the debut to the "Third" era. Well, let me rephrase that, an old beast shedding a part of its moniker to usurp the throne of the progenitors of the original band.
Not exactly what i was expecting, however the results aren't nearly as disastrous i had feared. Not by a long shot. Out of the original Softies, only Hugh Hopper was involved on the first two albums before being replaced by Roy Babbington another 70s memberotherwise the rest of the group consisted of Etheridge on guitars, Theo Travis on sax, flute and Fender Rhodes piano and John Marshall on drums. While not the classic early years, Marshall played drums on "Fifth" and stuck around throughout the rest of the 70s and 80s as did Babbington.
Are you thoroughly confused yet? Well, i am! And you thought it was only the music that was complex?
