Symbol is Christopher Royal King, founder and lead guitarist of This Will Destroy You. Online Architecture is an ambient voyage and is a fair way out of the instrumental ball park, yet it is just as captivating. Inspired by King’s travels in East

Good Willsmith ~ The Honeymoon Workbook

The words “recorded live with no overdubs” are overused, but in this case they make an important statement.  The trio of Good Willsmith had to be on point at all times for this venture to work.  One slip and the entire project

Ákos Garai ~ The Imagined River

With The Imagined River, we step once more into the River Taurion ~ the same river, a different river, a real river, an imagined river.  At this point in the ongoing La Rivière series, Cédric Peyronnet’s original recordings have become secondary to the impressions

Innercity Ensemble ~ II

Innercity Ensemble‘s II is a study in black and white, but in these improvisations the colors are not always what one might expect.  Each entry comes across as a riff on a theme.  The contrast yields to synthesis, much in the same

Ben Jacov ~ Transalp

Transalp wasn’t recorded in the Alps, nor does it sound particularly frosty; but the cover image connotes cold, reflecting Ben Jacov’s desire to find a place in which all color and contour are lost.  The artist celebrates the experience of white ~

Charles-Eric Charrier ~ Petite Soeur

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from bassist / pianist Charles-Eric Charrier, who last impressed us with 2011′s elegant Silver.  He moves in two directions on Petite Soeur, polishing his sound on the vinyl portion while saving his deeper experiments for

Bmbu ~ reBuilder

Philadelphia’s Bmbu produces American hip hop at its finest. John Michael Alsace’s beats are rock solid and his star spangled, sophisticated instrumentation is a sight to behold. Anyone can grab hold of a sample, but it’s the flow of the final product
