So glad this has been noticed : )

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: Susan Drone
Title:
Laurie Spiegel
Keywords:
experimental ambient dark ambient drone experimental electronic Murcia

This one is intense, with its thick blissful sound that feels like some kind of godlike drone that mysteriously appeared out of the skyline. Everything else is silent, making it appear at a time in which most people are asleep. Some kicks can be felt, bashing like the hammer of Thor while being washed away in the grotesque emerging dronescape.

It really goes into me as the impressive piece that it is, making me feel little and the audio universe gigantic. A shimmering pulsation can be felt in this ambience, as if in the far distance some-kind of army of spirits march above the thick clouds. It keeps the intensity for the full amount that this track plays, humbling me down as if it made me realize what an unremarkable tiny dot we are on…

Review Reblog – Leah Kardos ~ Rococochet — A Closer Listen

 

 

I thought I had the measure of Rococochet a few minutes into “Let Your Body”, a soothing opener of polyrhythmic ivories, mallets and skins that slowly unfurls to reveal increasingly vivid jazz-infused colours. Even as other, unexpected timbres join – mellotron, synth and backing vocals, the tone and atmosphere hold steady, and I assumed charted […]

Review Reblog – Gaël Segalen ~ Memoir of My Manor

a closer listen

After 2o years of sound work and field recording, Gaël Segalen finally released her first LP.  2016’s L’Ange Le Sage was melodic and abrasive in equal quantities. Memoir of My Manor continues in this vein, adding a new, nearly club-like sensibility.  The Parisian artist calls her compositions “danceable field recording”, but the first album only hinted at the dance floor, while the second flaunts this facet before drawing back to the shadows.  This is appropriate for an album inspired by monsters, although the creature on the cover doesn’t seem all that scary.

The thirteen-minute “Remember” pulses and broods, while failing to give an indication of the artist’s rough edges.  Instead, it operates as a dangerous mirror to Giorgio Moroder’s “The Chase”, inviting listeners to run rather than dance.  When additional synths enter, the track takes on a near-industrial sheen.  It’s a bold opening gambit, daring listeners to stick around for…

Reblog – on palto flats and wrwtfww’s reissue of midori takada’s seminal through the looking glass

I have loved this record for so long and over the years have visited it on many occasions. It is “a masterpiece failed by its own time”. – like so many that I could name. While other artists are feted and gain all the publicity, there are many who deserve as much accolade and praise – and finally, Midori Takada is getting the recognition she long deserved.

Although it doesn’t quite fit into the electronic field as such, please try and listen, and take in the 40 minutes that demonstrate how often gems are lost due to fashion in music, lack of distribution, knowledge and being in the wrong time and place.

It is sublime.
