Reblog – Geyser by Annabelle Playe — The future of music, today, one record at a time.

Wait for it…..slowburn ignites .

Thanks to Toneshift this didn’t pass me by.

 

 

Annabelle Playe | Geyser DAC Records (12″/DL) Geyser is from French multidisciplinary sound artist Annabelle Playe and is her third full-length effort — it’s one to keep an ear out for. It offers something solitary, about infinitesimal fragments slowly expanding toward the far corners of the horizonline. It’s a balance of soft and hard […]

Review Reblog – Sabiwa – 輪 迴

 

 

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Sabiwa
Title: 輪 迴
Keywords: experimental idm abstract ambient electronic asian experimental electronic London
Label: CHINABOThttp://www.chinabot.co/

Okay, we have to talk. Or no, let me refrain this; I have to pen up and you just read and accept it for what it is: a little praise for a fantastic album. Yes, you have read it well; a fantastic album. It’s done and created by a artist named Sabiwa who order us not to make any sound ourself and instead listen to her big banging beats, mythologically impressive sounds and futuristic ambiences. She is right, first of all because it sounds so massive that your own sounds would just fade away into nothing, but second of all; it’s just to impressive to be chatted through.

All these goodies on this album seem to be smeared into each other, like good ideas that had become real things in reality. Odd…

Review Reblog – Intrication by France Jobin

France Jobin | Intrication
No. (CD/DL)

A stalwart of the microsound scene, France Jobin releases her 9th album on the No. label. Despite her previous association with the most lowercase of sounds, this album sees the Montreal-based artist expand her sound palette considerably. These tracks are noticeably fuller in scale and scope, allowing Jobin to explore wider realms of audio. Of course, her signature sine waves are present in many places here, delicate shards and pings of treble and hiss, but overall this collection embraces a warmer, richer aesthetic and it pays off.

Track titles are mysterious, possibly relating to quantum entanglement, as this heady area of theoretical physics was influential in the construction of Intrication. The first piece, “Ph”, is an epic 15-minute track that begins proceedings in style. Glitched-out half-melodies stutter from speaker to speaker, with high pitched crackles following along the periphery. Thicker…

Review Reblog – Degradation Loops by Jasmine Guffond

Jasmine Guffond | Degradation Loops
Karl (LP/DL)

Australian sound artist Jasmine Guffond‘s Degradation Loops was just released via Berlin imprint Karl who have been serving many delights in 2018. This half hour long singular piece starts with incidental chatter in a public place in what the artist refers to as being “initially a sixteen day process of sonic destruction created for an art exhibition.” What becomes evident rather quickly is that Guffond is unafraid of this sense of beauty in question, unbalanced detritus layered in a collage style of happenstance and assorted harmonies. I notice a quasi Middle Eastern feel to the central track. While the effects explore the textural surface and underpinnings of drone I hear the wavering hypnotic core. I hear a rattle similar to a spray paint can readying to make its mark, I hear a bustling youthful crowd at a cultural center or…

Reblog – Marta Sap – Live soft session Kożyczkowo 2018 Green Circles Festival

Another find thanks to Yeah I Know it Sucks (but it doesn’t)

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Marta Sap
Title: Live soft session Kożyczkowo 2018Green Circles Festival
Keywords: electronic world chill chill out chillwave ethnic ethnotrip ethnotronica kalimba Gdańsk

After really enjoying ‘breaths’ by Marta Sap and revisiting this electronic didgeridoo album many times in a fondly matter, I got this incredible urge to hear something different coming out of this artist’s inventory. With a few clicks there my answer was; a live session!

I drank some wine, closed my eyes and heard Marta play. She opened up the gates of dreams, with something that sounded like a well tuned kalimba. Something that got a magical touch with the help of spacious effects that really made reality look far and surreality nearby. There I say and listened in silence, cheered with brainwaves the upcoming peacefulness that this music was providing. I sipped the content of the glass and stroked my own ears fondly as Marta…
