“Graham Dunning’s Fractal Meat on a Spongy Bone radio show is a constant inspiration in its tireless exhumation of new exploratory music and sound art. December 2016 marks the show’s fifth birthday and to celebrate Dunning has made all the music from his associated Fractal Meat label free to download for the rest of the year.

Off to download…….

Today’s Discovery -Album of the Day: Mica Levi and Oliver Coates, “Remain Calm” — Bandcamp Daily

“Remain Calm” is steeped in classical music, yet keen enough to blend contemporary styles—like grime, techno and drone.

Review Reblog – Svetlana Maraš and Bodies Under The Waterfall ~ Angry Ambient Artists Vol. 2

Yes, you can be an angry ambient artist and this expresses the mood at the moment.
“What to do with all this anger?  The healthiest approach is to channel it into something positive” – Couldn’t agree more.

a closer listen

fwd16_frontThere’s been a lot of news to be angry about this year, from terrorism to Brexit to the U.S. presidential elections to the ongoing crisis in Syria.  What to do with all this anger?  The healthiest approach is to channel it into something positive, which Svetlana Maraš and Bodies Under The Waterfall do in the second installment of Forwind’s Angry Ambient Artists series ~ ironically, once again ending up in the Drone category.  As the series progresses, we may determine that “angry ambient” is an oxymoron, but it’s still a catchy title.

Last time around, the artists involved (Machinefabriek and Phillippe Petit) were well-known for their softer works, as well as their forays into abrasion.  This time, the artists are new, which leads one to wonder if they were ever ambient at all.  Their stated goal:  “to make some creative sense of these dark times.”  These sounds are indeed…

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. It was so good to my ears , I made it my Album of the Week – 8/11//16 and was also going to be a Todays Discovery but pleased to post this YIKIS review instead.

Since it’s Halloween

Here is the new release from Betty Koster aka Phantasm Nocturnes, a dark experimental artist. The main genres that she employs are dark ambient, noise, drone, and industrial. Phantasm Nocturnes is influenced by horror movies, books, serial killers and other musical artists with dark themes.

“This is where electronic and acoustic music find the perfect balance – which is precisely what Statea represents.” – Headphone Commute

Yes. Here’s the review…

Review Reblog – Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith – EARS

Sometimes a reviewer hits the nail on the head and this review just seems to put into words the overall feeling of this release.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
title: EARS
keyword: experimental

this album starts like a young baby bird that is kindly being pushed out of its homely nest . It opens its tiny little wings and realizes that is had captured the miraculous ability to fly in the great sky. It is so happy that the bird starts to sing with wide wakened eyes along with a euphoric feeling of success. Within its little feathered body it realizes that the whole world is at its tiny feet!

Then the album moves on with its audio appreciative wings all over an intriguing scene of the wetlands. This is the place in which frogs & toads gather and fishes stick their heads out of the water to see and hear what this wonderful music is all about. It’s Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s music and she brings it all out to give the soggy landscape a…
