tenebrous MITCHELL – “THE HEART IS A COMPASS”

tenebrous MITCHELL is a collaboration between Scottish poet Gerry Mitchell and Steve Gullick’s tenebrous LIAR project. “The Heart is a Compass” is an exploration of the human condition in both spoken and wordless poetry.  Gerry Mitchell’s voice resonates over a sea of droning brass overtones, plucked piano strings, washes of percussive noise and Satie-like melodies. …

WOLF LIGHT – “PHANTOM / THERE IS NOBODY LEFT (OWEN GRAY REMIX)”

Collaborations under quarantine have been one of the few bright spots that this global pandemic has brought about. I’ve seen some truly inspiring virtual collaborative performances from thoughtfully curated outlets like Experimental Sound Studio Quarantine Concert series.  Artists like the London based Wolf Light have also found new ways to collaborate that replicate the bracing …

BYGONE SUMMERS – “CHERRY BLOSSOM / METAMORPHOSIS”

Bygone Summers are a Cuban duo based out of Miami that create sprawling compositions that move from folk-influenced Dream Pop – a spectral kind of folk that floats in through the open window of late spring – to completely unhinged Shoegaze that marshalls sheets and sheets of feedback and distortion atop a driving melody introduced …

STREET OF CROCODILES – “CONSONANCE”

The Serbian based electronic artist has created a solo piano composition of great weight and beauty that tracks along the empty streets of Belgrade during the early days the pandemic. Truly haunting and singular, with images that we (hopefully) will never have to see again.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wLWUof6Ofk

GIANLUCA PIACENZA – “ONCE AGAIN”

“Once Again” is a beautiful and contemplative waltz written as a remembrance of those who lost their lives during the pandemic. The Italian composer and pianist whose affecting playful, yet somber,  melodies are full of nostalgia and yearning. A beautiful offering during these troubled times. 

FIERRO EX MACHINA – “A SAIL OF ALL TEARS”

Centered around a low and heavy bass line, “A Sail of All Tears” accrues tension-mounting strings, percussive elements that are sampled and filtered to recall post-industrial scrapes sounds of decaying machinery and eerie drones as it expands out from it’s base and slowly mutates to fit it’s new environment. These sounds are sourced from Alex …

THE FOREVER NOW – “HANGING BY A THREAD”

“Hanging by a Thread” is a pretty brilliant crossover between Deep House / Progressive House beat and chord progressions with an ear fully bent in the neo-classical direction. Intricate rhythmic patterns are propped up by swelling strings, bells and arpeggio-heavy synth lead melodies that tie the track together in some moments of dancefloor catharsis.  The …

JAVERLING X VON EULER – “MINNESLUND”

Created around the deft interplay between guitar and synthesizers, “Minneslund” is taken from their album Musik för trädgårda which envisions these compositions as nature controlled and shaped into a garden. A marshaling of tones and heavily abstract pieces into a fully-fleshed composition that attempts to bring the vast wildness of all possible tones and shapes …
