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…

Review Reblog – Eva Bowan – Ringwoodite

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Eva Bowan

Title: Ringwoodite

Keywords: electronic ambient ambient electronic experimental electronic Brighton

Let me introduce you to this wonderful album by Eva Bowan; maybe you heard it already and maybe you didn’t, but I’m over the moon to share it here with you. It had been keeping me companionship in difficult times & thought you might experience comfort or joy within these tracks too. On before hand, please excuse me if this write up / review thing sounds a bit too serious; it’s just that kind of thing… it’s important to me & feel it deserves to be treated with the same respect as it had been treating me in it’s comforting & empowering audio ways…

It started with one piece named “Regression To The Mean”, which comes across as a mysterious sounding recording, one in which a intense magically sounding vocal immediately puts a spell on the listener…

Today’s Discovery – Ghost on the Stairs – Meemo Comma

 

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 –

Review Reblog – Dendera Bloodbath – Inanna at the Gates

I’m a great believer in giving lesser well known artists a bit of a spotlight and many I find via Yeah I Know it Sucks.
Today’s Discovery, Dendera Bloodbath’s Inanna at the Gates is an experimentation in visceral noise.
Currently she performs both experimental darkwave sets with autoharp and noise sets with electronics of her own design. For more info, visit: http://www.denderabloodbath.com

At first Dendera Bloodbath squeaks her ultimate power sounds in your ear like it’s a metal chainsaw going in full (but precise) overdrive! It feels like your head had been split in two, leaving it exposed for her other (more reasonable?) sounds-to-come,material that she will spill into your skull like a liquid brutal attack of Experimental origin. It’s all for the sake of science and experiment! How far can Dendera Bloodbath go? And what will drive you over the edge or please your ears tremendously? This artist seems to seek both extremities and wants to apply them both at the same time! Is that a pretentious project? It might be, but listening to her release it seems like this experiment works in full force!

She pours…

Reblog Interview – Step Right Up: Ekin Fil

FRACTURED AIR

What I mean is music was a part of my growing up as a person and i want it to be that way always.”

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…
