Murcof ~ The Alias Sessions

Occasionally, an artist and a label seem inseparable, synonymous even. Amon Tobin and Ninja Tune come to mind, as do John Coltrane and Impulse Records. I could compile an exhaustive list of artist-label marriages forged in the heavens, but that

Nainita Desai ~ The Reason I Jump

The film release has been delayed to June 18, but we already have an exquisite sneak peak in the music of Nainita Desai.  The Reason I Jump is an elegant study of autism, based on Naoki Higashida’s striking autobiography, written when

The Hidden ~ The Science Museum / Various Artists ~ Winter Days

Once again, we’re pairing an EP from The Hidden with a compilation from the same label.  The cover of The Science Museum is a symbol of bloom, rising from the white landscape of Winter Days. Aviary Bridge Records continues to exemplify chill no matter

Nat Bartsch ~ Hope
