Fans of samurai films, kabuki theatre and sound design take note.

Ande Somby, is a yoiker (someone who yoiks.) A yoik, according to indigenous Finno-Ugric oral traditional, is one of the longest living musical traditions in Europe.

Tape Tuesday: Jesse Osborne-Lanthier & Robert Lippok — Timeline

Geographic North, in their non stop efforts to release some of the finest experimental music that exists, have dropped “Timeline” on us in our hour of need. The Osborne-Lanthier/Lippok duo’s work is a minimal affair of misty textures hovering around electric charges that dance on air to the beat of a broken drum. It pulses […]

Tape Tuesday: The Snowfields – How To Get Good Sound From A Dead Ear

Rob Mazurek – Alternate Moon Cycles LP

So, this record came out last year. But we just found out about it, and its crazy that its not sold out. “Alternate Moon Cycles” by Rob Mazurek (of Chicago Underground/Isotope 217 fame) features two side length movements of droning organ, bass and cornet that shimmer and glow in a most agreeable way. The minimalist […]

Tape Tuesday: Blood Room – Habitus

Indole Records from the UK has been doing some really rad stuff with their releases. One of note is ‘Habitus’ by Blood Room (aka Tim Matts) Equal parts plunderphonics and minimal techno, this recording is an examination of everything down in the cracks and in between the walls. The tape features bonkers illustration by Jennifer […]

Birdman – OST 2xLP

Did you see Birdman last year? You better have. It was fantastic, and equally so is the music in it…which is officially getting the wax treatment from Milan Records. Much of the film is peppered with the solo jazz drumming of Antonio Sanchez, which is adept at carrying the scenes along in a way you […]

Oren Ambarchi & Jim O’Rourke – Behold LP

YES. This is what’s good right now. Back in 2011 Ambarchi and O’Rourke released the collaborative LP ‘Indeed’ on Editions Mego and it was, indeed, amazing. We just wished it was a bit longer…or for another release altogether. Well, our prayers have been answered. The duo is back with two sides of minimalist electronics, guitars, […]

Tombed Visions are killing it right out of the gate in 2015. Their signature quality is again front and center with the new 2xCS from Joseph Lawrence Quimby Jr. This is Quimby’s third time around on the label, and this double recording is easily his best. Cellos, guitars, pianos, field records and great use of […]
