Review Reblog – Marta Sap – Breaths

Something different and a breath of fresh air – poor pun not intended.

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Breaths
Keywords: 3city alternative electronic world didgeridoo fox peoples space woman Gdańsk

As long as Marta Sap delivers her breaths we would be musically in for a good ride. Here she explores grooves and moods with the didgeridoo as the staring middle point and when she feels like it; electronica on the side. Let me mumble away about the tracks that this release is the home for: The fiery first one named ‘Jungle City’ sets the mood into a dancing one. With the moving sound of a active didgeridoo as the acidic baseline, the artist named Marta Sap is armed enough to deliver a incredible active expression in rhythm & vibe that feels naturally earthy. It easily connects to the pleasure center of the brain, tricking the endorphins to come out and make us feel happy and gay. ‘Fast Drivers’ is also a great active didgeridoo…

Review Reblog – Mia Zabelka & Asférico – The Broken Glass

Aural Aggravation

Störung – str011 – 7th July 2017

Christopher Nosnibor

I need to work a better filing system for my to-review albums. As it stands, it’s literally a pile, with new deliveries being tossed on top of the pile or otherwise littering the floor next to my desk. The chaotic disorder doesn’t sit comfortably with my innate sense of order and organisation, but the pile has a life of its own. Logically, new arrivals should go to the bottom of the pile, but lifting the pile, precarious as it is, is a risky operation. The teetering stack reached a height and degree of instability this morning that lifting the disc and accompanying press release from the top caused the whole thing to slide in several directions at once. Gathering the strewn and scattered discs and press releases, many of which had become separated from one another, I happened upon The Broken…

Review Reblog – Agnès Pe ‬- Para Ana (music video)‬

I came across Agnes Pe via Yeah I Know it Sucks some time ago and have followed her avant garde, witty and experimental work ever since.
“Wasn’t that a marvellous experience?”
Yes….and recommended too are her radio sound collages – Mitt Pate : )

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: ‪Agnès Pe ‬
Title: ‪Para Ana (music video)‬
‪Keywords:‬ devotional faux-utopian ambience devotional distorted e-stim malfunction muzak muzak-stun Lleida

It doesn’t happen everyday when two intriguing artists collaborate in a audio visual form, but when the odd moons align and such a special thing actually happens it’s for sure something to inform everyone about! Especially when the artists in question are ‪Agnès Pe & Jan Strach. The result is a spectacular experience in the shape of a excellent trip in music video form. Jan Strach heard ‘Para Ana’ by Agnès Pe and must have been incredibly inspired as the good man started to create the perfect visuals to the sounds. ‬

‪With his love for video games and the excellent trained ears for the bizarreness in the music spectrum, Jan Strach managed to make the track come alive. It’s a real trip, one that is best viewed…

Review Reblog – on pauline anna strom’s trans-millenia music, via rvng

It is a sad fact that some artists gain recognition late in their lives, sometimes due to a reappraisal of the “genre” they write. In hindsight some are realising that New Age and Melodic Instrumental music is really worth sitting down and listening to, albeit a bit late for some as in Pauline Anna Strom’s case, or too late for others. Without sounding preachy here – give things a listen, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Review Reblog – Gail Priest ~ Heraclitus in Iceland – A Closer Listen

From first hearing this release, I was blown away and if I get any money at Christmas, this will definitely be on my list.

a closer listen

Iceland’s scenery is lovely yet savage.  The views are astonishing, from the Northern Lights to the purebred horses.  But storms can arise at any moment, and recent eruptions have solidified the nation’s reputation as the land of fire and ice.  One may drive up to a glacier on a one-lane road without guard rails, but if one should get in trouble, help may be late in arriving.  Last year a New Jersey tourist became famous for following his GPS six hours off course (having typed Laugarvegur  instead of Laugavegur, an easy mistake), briefly becoming a local celebrity; he then repeated the mistake on a drive to the Blue Lagoon.

Gail Priest captures the nation’s dichotomy in her dual-toned aural exploration, Heraclitus in Iceland.  The title refers to the philosopher who wrote, “You cannot step twice into the same river.”  Reading Heraclitus’ work while enjoying her residency in Olafsfjordur, the Australian sound artist…

Review Reblog – Heejin Jang – Trouble in the Camp

I came across Heejin Jang – Binary Breath via YIKIS last year and was interested to hear this new release. On listening, it’s excoriating…but in a good way.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Heejin Jang
Title: Trouble in the Camp
Keywords:electronic experimental avant-garde experimental indie rock noise psychedelic rock synth United States
Label: Doom Trip

Unleashed on the special day of spookiness, the one that people named ‘Halloween’ are the fearful sounding spooky sounds from ‘Trouble in the Camp’ by Heejin Jang. It is best to hear it in complete darkness with the sound up loud and yourself hiding underneath a blanket of comfort. This music will bring out the shimmering demons of the night, the creepy crawlers & the audio ghouls that hammer their wooden sticks of magic in fierce-full depths, ready to haunt you for some poisoned candy.

Some of them come across cold and slimy, as if the ghosts of the many snails you have stepped on all throughout your life had now come to scare the hell out of you for a good old-time case of revenge…
