“I wanted to explore edges and boundaries in any form; abstract, fictional, material, and by doing so I started to find metaphors I could use from concepts coming from geology like the anticline or the antiform which are ultimately disrupted or distorted hierarchical bodies.” —Lucrecia Dalt Words: Mark Carry On the striking, near-prophetic album opener […]

Great to see this new project – Stag Hare – has been picked up. When I first heard this album, recommended by Sean Conrad of Inner Islands records, I was blown away by the sound, partly New Age and also what some term Now Age.

Couldn’t really pass this release and review…
Some of you who follow Feminatronic on Twitter and Facebook will know that I post playlists based on a weekly theme. Since I have discovered that there are a lot more women creators out there than I realised, this enables me to highlight as much music as possible but also giving a fair hearing to many genres of electronic music.
These seem quite popular as a means of discovering new artists and music, so it’s about time I posted some here.
This week the theme has been Between Continents and has focussed on artists from, working / living or have connections with Asia and Africa. Below are the two playlists that I have put together so far and Album of the Week Ombrophilia by Tomoko Sauvage.
Artists on this playlist are Deena Abdelwahed, Kyoka, Liliane Chlela, Tujiko Noriko, Zahra Mani, Midori Hirano, Yoko Ono, Buffalo Daughter.
Artists on this playlist are Mutamassik, _litter, One Man Nation, YTAMO. unii, Yara Mekawei, Applex Twin and Fari B.
