So glad this has been noticed : )

Title: Laurie Spiegel
Keywords: experimental ambient dark ambient drone experimental electronic Murcia
This one is intense, with its thick blissful sound that feels like some kind of godlike drone that mysteriously appeared out of the skyline. Everything else is silent, making it appear at a time in which most people are asleep. Some kicks can be felt, bashing like the hammer of Thor while being washed away in the grotesque emerging dronescape.
It really goes into me as the impressive piece that it is, making me feel little and the audio universe gigantic. A shimmering pulsation can be felt in this ambience, as if in the far distance some-kind of army of spirits march above the thick clouds. It keeps the intensity for the full amount that this track plays, humbling me down as if it made me realize what an unremarkable tiny dot we are on…

Just spent twenty minutes sidetracked by this minimalist piece and was happy to do so.
Artist: Elizabeth Veldon
Title: ten shaker dances for mother ann lee and christian that he may dance (group 3)
Keywords: experimental avant garde electronic noise United Kingdom
I don’t know about you, but I was really in the mood to hear music that had come out of the mysterious hands & mind of the legendary Elizabeth Veldon. Just when I clicked for ‘experimental’ stuff in bandcamp her name appeared and when I followed it; pretty music followed as well.
Twenty minutes of it, a time period that anyone in need for some fine minimal ambient drone material would be very happy and pleased to find within their ears. The tone that the artist is giving its attention too is ringing like some kind of magic, a vibrant minimalism that felt to me like it’s a morning time that never ends. As if Elizabeth Veldon had captured the morning glory…

Plenty to look forward to here……
To dance is to forget one’s problems and to underline the vibrant nature of life. Our Electronic Preview points in the direction of the club, but even if one can’t get out there in public, there’s always the living room, the lawn, the car. Let’s say you were a robot beached on a distant island. Wouldn’t you still have a locked groove in your electronic heart? We know we would! The best beats of the season are waiting to be discovered in the largest of our five fall previews.
Our cover image is taken from Peter Brown’s The Wild Robot, one of the finest YA books in recent memory. A sequel, The Wild Robot Escapes, will be published next spring. For more on Brown and the Wild Robot series, visit his website here.

“Meemo Comma is the new alias of Objects Limited boss Lara Rix-Martin. She previously released as Lux E Tenebris and as one half of the duo Heterotic (on Planet Mu). Her label Objects Limited issues a variety of electronic music from an exclusively women and non-binary roster.
‘Ghost on the Stairs’ explores how Lara Rix-Martin perceives sounds, as she has Auditory Processing Disorder. APD mostly affects how a person processes speech internally; background noises merge with language and every background sound has equal relevancy making it hard for an APD listener to understand voices, music and disentangling multiple audio sources.
Merging speech and voice into a strange and alien form has always been the core of Lara Rix-Martin’s sound, but it’s given a stronger focus on this album. Incorporating similar meditative influences to her ‘Cyclizine’ EP; drones feature with a maximal/minimal all-encasing feeling that flickers between comforting numbness and anxiety. Tracks such as ‘Caturday’ and ‘Online Persona’ explore rhythms in the spaces in between the beats. “I’ve always found it interesting to think of rhythms in a negative way, what beats aren’t there, the spaces between”.
Released September 1, 2017
The album is also included on the Bandcamp Daily weekly roundup of essential releases –

“You could still see the bullet holes in the houses,” Gudrun Gut says of moving to Berlin back in 1975. Far from the gentrified, cultural hub the city is today, she remembers it being a strange and polarized population of “only really students and pensioners” and “nobody between 30 and 50.” Naturally, a burgeoning hive of activity existed among the young people, which she was instantly drawn towards. “There was a big political scene from the students, as well as big communes and a strong feminist movement.” Gut stayed in Berlin, and over 40 years later, has become a venerable figure in the underground scene as a musician, producer, DJ, and label boss.
When she discovered the world of German music back in the 1970s, Gut was sucked in by the motorik of Neu! and the psychedelic grooves of Tangerine Dream, but eventually, like many…

If you like mixes there’s a lot of new and interesting releases from a wide range of artists on this one, including Kara-Lis Coverdale, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Mary Ocher and the more electronic shift in sound for artist Colleen.
July saw the highly-anticipated return of world-renowned French composer Colleen (aka Cécile Schott) with her achingly beautiful new single “Separating”, taken from the forthcoming “A flame my love, a frequency” out October 20th via Thrill Jockey. On her new album, Schott’s viola da gamba – used on her last two records “Captain of None” and “The Weighing Of The Heart” – is replaced by solely electronic instrumentation: Moog pedals and Critter and Guitari synthesizers. The result is yet another otherworldly, far-reaching sonic odyssey from this visionary solo artist.
Following on from last year’s exceptional debut mini-album “Shady & Light”, Hamburg-born and Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Martyn Heyne has unveiled his stunning new single “Carry”, taken from the forthcoming solo debut album (coming out later this year on the neo-classical imprint 7K!). The divine guitar-based compositions crafted by Heyne carves out a ceaselessly rich listening experience for the…
