The Utopia Strong presents ‘Arrival In Utopia’ [mix]

Mixes have been less and less frequent lately, but I’m trying to get at least one new mix published monthly. To that effect, I’m pleased to share Arrival in Utopia. Modular synth group The Utopia Strong have just released their

Ukrainian Field Notes VIII

Episode VIII of Ukrainian Field Notes goes deep into Russian occupied territory for an interview with Kadaitcha in Nova Kakhovka. We also hear from Arthur Mine with a new release on Muscut (the gloriously “retro-futurist” Urania), alongside Andrey Kostyukov, who

k. burwash ~ Holding Air

A hazy black and white photo of a beachfront scene, with bathers in clusters, on shore and in the water. Is this a vacation photo from a bygone era? A decaying artifact from a long-lost film? The cover of k.burwash’s

Akusmi ~ Fleeting Future

Given all that the world has been going through, it’s refreshing to encounter someone who has remained optimistic.  Pascal Bideau is Akusmi, his moniker suggesting acoustic, albeit with an international tinge ~ exactly what one will hear while spinning Fleeting Future. The album

Hatis Noit ~ Aura

Aura is the exemplar of the human voice as instrument.  While Hatis Noit often seems to be singing words, her debut album is wordless and otherwise instrument-free.  A sample of the ocean near Fukushima is the only adornment.  Her vocal range, applied to

Glenn Jones ~ Vade Mecum

Vade Mecum is a collection of ten instrumentals, performed fingerstyle on solo acoustic guitar by veteran virtuoso Glenn Jones, though he’d likely resist the second descriptor.  According to Jones, the Latin phrase means ‘go with me’. Another definition is a handbook kept by one’s
