Fatwires ~ The wicked Path

Yet another left turn for bassist John Eckhardt, The wicked Path once again teaches us to drop our prior expectations.  We never expected to encounter a drum ‘n’ (real) bass album from the artist, although it makes perfect sense.  Recording as Fatwires, he’s

Julia Bünnagel ~ Sounds Like … Vienna

I’ve fallen in love with this performance video.  Many people make field recordings, but few cut out circles of concrete and play them like records.  And then even fewer go out in public to share what they’ve done.  To our knowledge,

James Norman ~ Micro Record Label

Micro Record Label is a delightful new book from James Norman of Brian Records fame.  We’ve reviewed music from his label before, which earns us a mention at the top of page 106 and makes this book one of our favorite books

Black to Comm ~ A C of M / Mouchoir Ètanche ~ Une Fille Pétrifiée / Black to Comm ~ Oocyte Oil & Stolen Androgens

A trio of new releases from Marc Richter demonstrates the artist’s versatility.  Each possesses its own flavor and appeal, and together they form a wild tapestry. A C of M is the angry one, which is to be expected as it

Meitei ~ Kofū

The third in a trilogy that began with Kwaidan and continued with Komachi, Kofū is another brilliant release from the mind of Meitei.  Each release has its own timbre; the first was unsettling (and was placed in our feature Music for Haunted Houses); the second
