Today’s Discovery – Feed Goals by Enchanted Lands

 

“…assemblages, showing intricate weaving and arranging of sound materials. Her tracks form strange scenes or frames where just when the sound seems to settle down a turnover point is reached and a delicate change of balance results in a whole new plateau. Receiving cues from ASMR, impact blasts, and natural phenomena, these elements become sound ingredients that add microscopic texture, sensuality and depth to their complementary sounds. Moving beyond any high or low fidelity, the nature of the sounds blend together into a space where compression artefacts, phone mic’ing and high-tech sound design mingle fluently. From weeping wind harps to whispered confessionals to immense trance reveries, the result is a sound that eludes itself and forces the ear to expect some curious inversion around every corner.”

Couldn’t attempt to describe this any better – A sonic delight.

Review Reblog – Marta Sap – Breaths

Something different and a breath of fresh air – poor pun not intended.

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Breaths
Keywords: 3city alternative electronic world didgeridoo fox peoples space woman Gdańsk

As long as Marta Sap delivers her breaths we would be musically in for a good ride. Here she explores grooves and moods with the didgeridoo as the staring middle point and when she feels like it; electronica on the side. Let me mumble away about the tracks that this release is the home for: The fiery first one named ‘Jungle City’ sets the mood into a dancing one. With the moving sound of a active didgeridoo as the acidic baseline, the artist named Marta Sap is armed enough to deliver a incredible active expression in rhythm & vibe that feels naturally earthy. It easily connects to the pleasure center of the brain, tricking the endorphins to come out and make us feel happy and gay. ‘Fast Drivers’ is also a great active didgeridoo…

Review Reblog – Mia Zabelka & Asférico – The Broken Glass

Aural Aggravation

Störung – str011 – 7th July 2017

Christopher Nosnibor

I need to work a better filing system for my to-review albums. As it stands, it’s literally a pile, with new deliveries being tossed on top of the pile or otherwise littering the floor next to my desk. The chaotic disorder doesn’t sit comfortably with my innate sense of order and organisation, but the pile has a life of its own. Logically, new arrivals should go to the bottom of the pile, but lifting the pile, precarious as it is, is a risky operation. The teetering stack reached a height and degree of instability this morning that lifting the disc and accompanying press release from the top caused the whole thing to slide in several directions at once. Gathering the strewn and scattered discs and press releases, many of which had become separated from one another, I happened upon The Broken…

Today’s Discovery – Heraclitus in Iceland – Gail Priest

 

I’ve wanted to make this my Today’s Discovery since first hearing this beautiful and atmospheric piece and spurred on by the review from A Closer Listen , here it is.

Review Reblog – Gail Priest ~ Heraclitus in Iceland – A Closer Listen

From first hearing this release, I was blown away and if I get any money at Christmas, this will definitely be on my list.

a closer listen

Iceland’s scenery is lovely yet savage.  The views are astonishing, from the Northern Lights to the purebred horses.  But storms can arise at any moment, and recent eruptions have solidified the nation’s reputation as the land of fire and ice.  One may drive up to a glacier on a one-lane road without guard rails, but if one should get in trouble, help may be late in arriving.  Last year a New Jersey tourist became famous for following his GPS six hours off course (having typed Laugarvegur  instead of Laugavegur, an easy mistake), briefly becoming a local celebrity; he then repeated the mistake on a drive to the Blue Lagoon.

Gail Priest captures the nation’s dichotomy in her dual-toned aural exploration, Heraclitus in Iceland.  The title refers to the philosopher who wrote, “You cannot step twice into the same river.”  Reading Heraclitus’ work while enjoying her residency in Olafsfjordur, the Australian sound artist…

Review Reblog – Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova – Okoloreki

It’s been a strange few weeks and I haven’t been able to keep up with things here but I’m kicking myself that I missed this…It is a wondrous thing to listen to…

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Wetwe Feat. Tatyana Kalmykova
Title: Okoloreki
Keywords: electronic experimental abstract ambient bass music downtempo drone folk modern classical russian folklor techno Moscow

I don’t know much about this music as I evidently avoided all the information that came with it as it appeared through our illustrious request form, but from my own ears and mind I could make up that this was a bit of a holistic revelation in sound ways. It was a calming one, that featured the prominent voice of a certain Tatyana Kalmykova that seemed to sing among the walls of ruins, or perhaps a still standing church with great acoustics. Sometimes her voice gets bounced into a room in which it still feels warm, yet the acoustics feel flat, a bit as if the bigness gets suddenly beamed through some old time radio.

But it’s not all about Tatyana Kalmykova’s voice, it’s also pretty much…
