Today’s Discovery….

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Electric Elizabeth
Title: FutureConeB
Keywords: experimental, noise, video

Electric Elizabeth’s description of one of her actual music videos online sounds way simpler than what it deserves. She wrote “Some slowed down footage of water with one of my tracks over the top.” Of course that’s what it is, literally speaking, but imaginative speaking there is so much more to it. First of all the ‘one of her tracks’ that she added to the visual video is one that fits the water footage so extremely well, so much so that it might even be a bit frightening in how good it fits.

It’s like every bit of water flow, every wrinkle on top and in it is attached to the sounds generated by her track. It is as if the water knows exactly when to move and is triggered by her sounds, or that Electric Elizabeth had made the track…

Reblog – Petra Glynt Brings People Power to Her Experimental Pop

“You see more women taking charge as festival and event promoters [because] in order for this to change there needs to be more women organizing,” she says. “Soon, [gender inequities] will be a thing of the past.”

I hope so…

This summer, Petra Glynt posted a message to her Instagram account, its floral-printed background belying the seriousness of its message. It read, “I want this to be known to the men of the music industry and those men booking and promoting shows. I am tired of being in the opening slot for your bills of all male musical acts. I’m so tired and I feel used.”

Those unsparing words, Glynt says, were long overdue. “I wrote that message publicly because I was fed up and am looking to make some changes,” she says from her home in Montreal. “I found myself feeling frustration at being the token female on music bills of all-male musicians. It is important to have diverse music events, but I was feeling that my role at these shows was a bit too obvious. People weren’t booking me because of my music…

News – Fall Music Preview: Electronic – A Closer Listen

Plenty to look forward to here……

a closer listen

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.

Turkish solo artist Ekin Fil has been carving out some of the most breath-taking and beguiling drone pop explorations these past few years, inhabiting the deep, ethereal dimension of Grouper’s Liz Harris and navigating the deepest depths of the human condition in the process. On the latest opus ‘GhostsInside’ – released earlier this summer on Los Angeles imprint Helen Scarsdale Agency – an undeniable catharsis permeates deep within these recordings: fragile vocals shimmer gently amidst spare elements of piano notes or reverb laden guitar swells, creating utterly hypnotic drone pulses and far-reaching shoegaze deconstructions.

The opening ripples of bass piano notes of ‘LetGo’ hang in the air- an ocean of…
