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 […]

Khanate – Self Titled/Things Viral+ 2xLP

For the uninitiated, Khanate (now defunct) was the experimental O’Malley/Plotkin/Wyskida/Dubin doom quartet that breathed a new light (or swallowed it, depending on how you see things) into the heavy scene back in 2001. For years now, both ‘Things Viral’ (their best, in our humble opinion) and ‘Khanate’ have been out of press, but Hydra Head […]

Tape Tuesday: Olli Aarni – Muovia

Finland’s own Olli Aarni is back with a new tape on the always excellent and top notch Australian imprint Preservation. ‘Muovia’ (which translates to ‘plastic’) features two side length movements of Aarni’s whispy trademark treatments of plundered goodness inspired by the lazy river vibes found on dusty New Age tapes and records. All this, and […]

Zach Cooper – The Sentence LP

‘The Sentence’ is a new LP of modern composition from Zach Cooper, and its pretty killer. Made up of contemporary recordings and early bedroom experiments, the record has a great nostalgic and spiritual tilt to it. Rambling guitars, synths, horns, woodwinds – all tiptoeing around, doing a great job of providing a listening experience similar […]
