Reblog – The Space Lady – greatest hits

You can never have enough of The Space Lady : )

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: The Space Lady
Title: greatest hits
Keywords: pop, electronic, synthesizer

I know… I know.. and I’m even fully aware of already having discussed this lovely album over here, but sometimes it’s nice to have it ripen in the back of my head and return to it like a fine wine that has stood through the seasons to make all the flavors pop out for the best. When I first heard it I was just fully flabbergasted and surprised about its discovery through a good friend (graham Boosey) who had seen this lady perform in concert. I was fully blown away by just hearing this album so imagine how blown away his enthusiasm was, but now with the time passing gracefully and the music flourishing like a flower over time in my own memory storage system, I thought reviewing it for a second time was a nice little thing to…

Reblog – Lunisolar by Mayuko Hino

There’s so much going on , too much for one person to keep up so looking through the Toneshift site I stumbled on this gem. Better late than never : )

The Future of Music Today

a3371128280_10

From UK-based Cold Spring Records comes the new release by Mayuko Hino (from the band CCCC) titled Lunisolar. It’s two lengthy tracks starting with the crusty drone vs. monastery bells on Fantainhead. It’s like an open circuit mixed with heavy rough winds, a low-fi reverberating buzz and a centering tone of a gong-like bell. 日野繭子 makes no bones about her wide-ranging noisician flexability here, nor her honored place in the contemporary Japanoise scene. After all, she’s been actively at it since the early 90s, even though this is only her second solo record. Unlike a bevy of artists who just make ear-splitting sonic somersaults, Hino’s sound is more impressionistic and staggered in its delivery, incorporating a yin/yang of the industrial and environmental.

The severe blast of wired drones sound like a giant firehose battling a blaze in the final minutes of track one. The half-stops and firestarts are…

Instead of playlists this Summer, I’m going to highlight and post compilations that may be of interest to listeners, covering all electronic genres and diverse in sound. Although this collection is not solely electronic, it does spotlight some of the artists creating experimental music.

Review Reblog – Bredbeddle: Stackes

ICYMI – 2017 Releases…

We need no swords

BredbeddleFractal Meat cuts cassette and digital

Rebecca Lee’s Bredbeddle creates glacial plunderphonics for the no-audience underground. In her absurdist soundscapes, hypnotic locked grooves – fragments of laughing audiences, wheezing string quartets, liturgical voices and other sonic debris – drive deep drone immersion. Imagine a narcoleptic DJ Shadow cutting soundtracks for a slow-motion apocalypse, or a low-power junkyard rave-up in the twilight of the world. But where conventional plunderphonic or turntablist wisdom would crash out a succession of fast-paced edits to build a surrealistic kaleidoscope of fragments, Lee is more sparing. She uses a smaller number of sampled sources, with her stuttering loops occasionally providing a faltering rhythmic chassis for wider explorations – simple flute improvisations, gleaming extended tones, muted electronic farts – or sometimes just left alone to clank along in their disjointed charm.

Lee deploys her samples almost cackhandedly, often so roughly edited to seem like she is physically…

Review Reblog – JASSS ~ Weightless

Also , good to see this release on the ACL 2017 Top Ten Electronic list : )

a closer listen

JASSS (Silvia Jiménez Alvarez) is yet another artist pushing music forward with a debut album.  We’re publishing this review a full month early to give our European readers the chance to check her out at the Atonal Festival (Stage Null, 1:00 a.m. Friday) and to disagree with her exclusion from FACT’s Seven acts you won’t want to miss.  FACT, we love you, but we’d put her in the top five.  Still, maybe you haven’t heard this album yet, in which case we forgive you.

Some of us have been waiting a long time for a new infusion of life in the industrial genre (which by any other name would still sound as sweet).  This year, it’s arrived with a vengeance in the form of artists such as Pan Daijing, Pact Infernal and Belief Defect (all playing Atonal!).  Apparently the playbook is gone, and these artists are playing by their…
