R. Schwarz ~ Wind 4-7

The music industry is less accustomed to sequels than the movie industry, but occasionally one does appear.  This is the case with Wind 4-7, a follow-up to 2016’s (you guessed it!) Wind 1-3.  In the new set, Robert Schwarz again mixes field recordings with

Chris Watson ~ Locations, Processed

The cover and series name shout “Moog!”  Yet the sound is what we’ve come to expect from Chris Watson: field recordings treated with love.  The fact that the chapters were filtered through the Moog Sound Lab’s System 55 seems incidental, but

Kenji Kahara ~ Scenes of Scapes

Summer is ending.  We hate to say it, because despite all our complaints about the heat, humidity and mosquitos, summer often represents more than it offers.  Summer is vacations by the sea, rest and relaxation, a surrender to the flow

Julia Kent and Jean D.L. ~ The Great Lake Swallows

It’s been three years since we’ve heard a new Julia Kent album, although the cellist has kept busy as a guest artist (Markus Guentner’s Empire) and remixer (Michael Price’s Diary Reworks).  On The Great Lake Swallows, she teams up with tape manipulator and guitarist Jean D.L. and field

Ólafur Arnalds ~ re:member
