Federico Durand – La Niña Junco LP

Argentinian composer Federico Durand has a new LP on the always quality 12k label (which we are stoked is doing more vinyl.) La Niña Junco is made up of two sides of minimal floating tones performed on a dusty old Crumar Performer synthesizer and filtered through a handful of effects. Durand’s music is always very […]

Emperor X – Oversleepers International LP

Jacksonville by way of Berlin troubadour Emperor X (aka former chemistry teacher, math tutor, and physics graduate student Chad Matheny) is serving up a new full length following up his killer 2011 LP Western Teleport. Oversleepers International finds Matheny blending his familiar sharp wit with humor and poignancy, all backed by a toolbox of instrumentation. […]

Oxbow – Thin Black Duke LP

After ten years of whispers and speculation, the time has come for the genre bending genius of Oxbow to present Thin Black Duke. Fans of the more recent output from the band will see this as a clear progression of the Oxbow procession. Scatterbrain vocal delivery, melody & discord, and…brass, apparently. Pre-orders up now at […]

Sutekh Hexen – Salem LP

Salem is a live, impromptu field-recording by GreySun Records which provides a rare window into the improvisational and un-scripted creative realms of Sutekh Hexen. Finding the collective at their most forthright and primitive to date, Sutekh Hexen conjures something entirely original within their own construct. Upon completion came reflection and context, which yielded a challenging […]

Scuba Death – The Worm At The Core LP

There is a new burner from Scuba Death (aka Richard Donoso) and like his previous work, its one for the books. 2 sides of the dubby beats, drones and the underwater creepies. Available now from Further Records (who are matching ACLU donations – 100% digi/50% physical) on black and blue vinyl The Worm at the […]

Andrea Belfi – Alveare LP

IIKKI Books is a relatively new project from the brains behind Eilean Records that focuses on the combination of sounds & visuals — in this case, vinyl records and super slick photo books. The latest is an electro-acoustic offering from Andrea Belfi, which features drums, percussion and synthesizers that makes great use of a stereo […]

Billy Gomberg – Slight At That Contact LP

One great thing about Gomberg’s work, is his use of the room. Every surface in said room, whether small and wooden, or large and cavernous, they all seem to be alive, pulsing and critical to the sound’s over all success—and Slight At That Contact is certainly that. Two sides of churning synths and crackling, skittering […]

Tape Tuesday: Cody Yantis – Cadence Annals

Multi-instrumentalist Cody Yantis has a new imprint of his very own and he’s hit the ground running with Cadence Annals, also his very own. Presented here are sections and pieces of his artistic life molded into a collection of works that spans synth to sax, oscillator to overflow. The result is a sparse and calculated […]

Thor & Friends – Self Titled LP

Remember that time you saw Swans and there was that one burly dude playing all kinds of auxiliary instruments while Gira was on his spirit quest? Well, said dude was Thor Harris, and he’s teamed up with Peggy Ghorbani and Sarah Gautier (as well as Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost of A Hawk & A […]

Tape Tuesday: Michael Flora – Xi

Minneapolis-based artist Michael Flora (of Nada label fame) has a new tape out on the relatively new Sympathy Limited label. Both of which are something you are going to want to check out if avant garde music is your cup ‘o tea. ‘Xi’ is nine movements of fractured tone bursts and granular synthesis ranging from […]
